Well, that's a bit too bad. I'd been holding off on making another alt, waiting for them to be released, since I mistakenly thought they were under development. I suppose though I could just take an alien or human captain and pretend, like has also been suggested. I mean, pretend a little more than we do anyway in the video game based in the 25th century in space.
I wonder if the reason you can't change the Holo bof is related to the reason it's been "in Discussion" since at least September. Assuming there is a reason. But then, I like to look at things like this: "Don't ascribe something to malice when (tech restrictions, priorities, unforeseeable bugs, etc.) is a likelier answer." (The original said stupidity, but that was a mafia don (in space) talking)
