There has to be some logical reason that is simply beyond us lesser creatures. I don't even get why Klingons have ONLY dreadlocks, because I can't remember any Klingon with that hair. Even less Nausicaans. Has anyone ever thought about the 'Nausicaan tattoo'? Nausicaans have bone plates on their faces. A tattoo is something that goes under the skin. There is no skin where most of that tattoo goes. If it was called 'war paint', maybe. I still can't remember any Nausicaan having that. Or those Hannibal Lector masks. I see a good chance I simply mixed things up, and thought I bought a Star Trek game, and this is really about something else.

The reason is not beyond us lesser Creatures. The reason is THAT we lower Creatures for Cryptik, and we all know that.
The reason is that 100 fed players want off duty, so no time between lunch, finishing time and scaling new Federation stuff.
I mean the 5 minutes of storywriting for Klingon exploration was a "Big task", i would geuss the same on fed side is something they do unmentionet. For us, its a big task (cant get over that, sorry. Big task.....)

Its still beyond me how a company can only work on one task at a time, regardless of its 'size'. I don't know, but somehow it seems efficient if there are 2 things to do, that 2 teams work on them. At the same time. Not only the selection of the few KDF options is something I don't get, its also how a company can survive without the ability to multitask.

They can muulti-task. They can work on 3-5 Fed items and 1 Klingon item at a time. Just don't expect them to change that ratio. --> Union rules.

Yes. And if there is trouble and they dont have the resources to do that all.... they just cancel the klingon item.

Just give the damn Klingon chicks a choice of SHOES!!!

And why oh WHY do player (but NOT NPC) Gorn dress like Klingons? The art is already in the game so GIVE IT TO US!

And why oh WHY do player (but NOT NPC) Orions dress like Klingons? The art is already in the game so GIVE IT TO US!

And why oh WHY do player (but NOT NPC) Nausiccans dress like Klingons? The art is already in the game so GIVE IT TO US!

And do on and so forth...

The art is already done... Why do we not have access to it?

Next you will be wanting the NPC Gorn, Orion and Nausican ships. It's a slippery slope that Cryptic will avoid for as long as possible. Then presto, they will pull these things out of their, er, sleeve.

Someone will be along to say "NPC clothing won't work on player characters" because player characters do emotes and bend in different places. I know, it's hard to make that work for shoes and eye patches.

Clothing is just textures in this game. Basically if the player model (skeleton if you will) can perform the emote, the textures go with it. It isn't like the clothing is "added" to the player char it's effectively a texture replacement only. So the excuse of "we need to redo animations" is a pile of bs if Cryptic starts to claim that.

So yes it is VERY weird why they don't just add some clothing code to the tailors, unless they want to run the C-Store scam on us KDF members by adding items that should be in the game itself to the C-Store. It wouldn't surprise me tbh but all we can do is wait and see...
