Preemptive counter-rebuttal: New art assets are part of the mission creation process, especially in missions of any quality, so artist time is an issue for that.

Step 1: Achieve the Ambassador rank and use the special token to acquire an Orion Boff.
Step 2: Wait for the devs to implement the promised first officer to playable alt system.
Step 3: ????
Step 4: Profit!


hopefully soon.

To be honest I have no problem with this......you actually have to work for it.I do have a problem with everything handed to Feds on a silver c-store platter,with no regard to faction diversity and with nothing added to the KDF whatsofreakin'ever.

*facepalm*

A few things:
  • These proposals go both ways, not just adding KDF species to Starfleet.
  • It gives Cryptic an actual financial incentive to do things like ever bother to finish the Gorn update.
  • Putting things in the C-store that already exist to pad their C-store release schedule frees up work-hours for un-****ing-up things like the KDF. Granted, they probably wouldn't take advantage of that anyway.

I still maintain that with a few exception, and even then it depends very heavily on the overall effect on balance and feel, that if someone wants something the Klinks have they should level a Klink to get it. Play the game and enjoy it.

Except that some of the Fed mission rewards (patrol mission for example), such as the kits are not avalable to the KDF. Or rather, there is no way to earn them without having to buy them with credits.

Assuming we actually get some decent PvE mission for the KDF with season 4 and Cryptic doesn't forget to add some apropriate rewards comparable to the Federation mission rewards, that probelm should disappear on a few months.
When you look at the mission rewards for the handful of story missions the Klingons already have, this is not too far fetched.

However I'd like to know what your remark has to do with what SteveHale said because I don't see how the two issues are related.

Orions being in starfleet was only depicted in the JJ timeline after the temporal event involving the Kelvin and Narada. Since STO takes place in the prime timeline, I don't believe orions have any place in the Federation.

If you read the "Road to 2409" backstory, it seems like the Orions have become very tightly controlled by their new Matriarch and pledged to the Klingon Empire.

Plus, at the end of the day, I don't really want to see a the horde of half-naked women sprinting around Earth Space Dock. It's just not very starfleet-like.

As my fleetmate said, if you want an orion boff bad enough to whine about it on the forums go play a Klingon.

Factions are different for a reason.

Kirk would disagree with you.

Point is the Feds can already get a Orion BO through the diplomatic system,I don't see the devs taking that out of the game......so if the Feds want a playable Orion and the BO > Captain conversion is coming regardless of what we say....let them really work for it.Make the grind journey as mind numbing as possible.....let them suffer for it.

Thanks
Every human I have seen in game on the KDF side was made using the custom alien feature at character creation often with a good bio to boot. If a player wants a Fed Orion captain they can do the same. Just as actual humans are Fed only, actual Orions are KDF and the KDF has little going for them as it is.
