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.

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.

I'll be more concern about getting the Romulan faction going as a playable race, than those minor races. I want my ROMMIE

There are a few KDF 'Ferasan' duty officers - they look like Caitians and some of them have the telepathic trait. Seems to me like an attempt to slip the K'zin in under the radar...
