Personally I do not see them adding in too many races going forward. They have had a number of races in the C-Store and soon most all of them will be free for everyone. So perhaps they were not seeing a lot of profit compared to staff cost for some custom races in the C-Store.

On the other hand, Caitians are one of the races still in the C-Store on tribble (Fed Klingons being the other I could see) and so those two might have been more profitable.

Based on both of my statements above I foresee them making a kitty race for the KDF and not too many others (possibly zero) until they decide to work on a Romulan / Hirogen faction.

But this is all my personal opinion based upon my own observations over time.

The root of the issue is cost/benefit for Cryptic. The more niche the race in question the less sense it makes for Cryptic to devote dev time to creating them.

Especially since there are ridiculous numbers of one-off species in Star Trek. The races that have been added so far are generally the ones that seem to have the most cult-following among the vocal forum going population.

Given how much stuff Cryptic is currently working on I'd doubt they will be making any new races for a while. But eventually they'll be looking for new things to add so drumming up support for your favorite choice now may pay dividends later.
