I wasn't shooting it down. I'm just saying if the races you mentioned in the OP are like the Deferi, created by the game maker, then the likelihood of seeing them in STO is remote. If they are actual canon ships, then adding them is a possibility.
The Vesta is an exception to that rule because the creator of that ship himself is actively pushing its inclusion in STO and even sought CBS approval himself.
Oh ok I have issues discerning inflection in online posts I do appologize.
SFC is based on Star Fleet Battles, which is based on the Franz Joseph Star Fleet Technical Manual. To say that the legalities tying it to the Star Trek IP are complex is akin to stating that flying a Type-F shuttle into a Borg Red Alert is mildly hazardous. I remain mildly amazed that the lawyers were able to work out the licensing agreements to permit the games to be published.
Also, the Hydrans and Lyrans were created out of whole cloth for SFB and have zero connection to Roddenberry's Trek.
See I did not know this, when I played these games I was 6 so I just thought the ships were interesting and the story line behind htem were intreguing.
