We already see NPCs with eye patches and masks and such... so ideally it shouldnt be that hard to add; I wouldnt think so anyway. /shrug
The Klink side is a warrior-based society... not just Klinks but all races invloved, so some more items like the Merc items would be an awesome addition to Klinks. Lord knows we need to have a little customization somewhere!
with the season 2 patch the klingon side has more costume pieces.
but the disappointing part of that is that each (new) piece is species specific.
Such as the Nausicaans having the gasmasks you were talking about but none of the other species on the klingon side can equip it, not even the Aliens!

I firmly believe that the alien custom species should have access to all the costume pieces that are available on that faction's side.

I ask for the Merc costumes for the klingon side as the klingons are more likely to ave mercs running around than the feds. plus we see Merc costume pieces on the klingons walking around Qo'nos

Heh, I said narrow view of canon - as in "I reject mercenary outfits on the grounds that there couldn't possibly be mercenaries in effectively moneyless societies, so no one should wear an outfit that has the word 'mercenary' in the name."

The Klingons would find nothing more offensive than the idea of fighting for money, suggesting this to a Klingon is the easiest way to find a d'k'tang in your chest. The code of Klingon honor would not stand such an outlandish concept.
The Romulan people follow the way of D'era and Mnhei'sahe, their interest is to unite the galaxy in Peace, few things are more irrelevant to this end than monetary systems, in fact the only time this becomes relevant is in the negative as in getting rid of monetary based value systems in planets that petition to join the Star Empire.

The Big Three as they are called all run non-monetary socialized systems of government, yes even, and in fact especially, the Klingons.

While this might be a leap for an audience that is still part of a society that is enthralled by currency, the canon is there, the question is simply, how true to the universe are we going to be.

This does not negate a faction or factions outside of these Three from having some sort of currency based system. Backwards societies like the Ferengi still feel a need to value matter over ideas and glory.

Enjoy the show.

Yours in Mnhei'sahe Plasma,
There are things other than money people kill for, besides what the hell are credits if not another form of money (Of which the Feds do use)?
