If you want to have such features don't play STO. It makes no sense in this game.
Orion PIRATES, aren't in STO.

This idea...is not good...

Keep in mind that some people play this for pure fun in chill mode. Like me... Then someone comes, freely attacks me and steals my loot that i worked to get?

Then i gotta steal it back or steal from someone else right? No way man...no way...

I enjoy the fact that we can raid with the klingons etc.
For example i always figured that WoW story sucked extremely bad...TBC, WOTLK, CATA...there is always a big badass dude that is killing everything in his path not caring what it is and only logical thing to do is to unite at least till those guys die...but nooo horde and ally still kill each other while some 3rd side kills them both at same time...

my point is, star trek story is better then that, more logical and to the point.
Also piracy in Federation???

Piracy wouldn't be PvP anyway, unless the other player was flying a freighter. Only stupid, dead pirates attack warships. The same warships who are carrying no loot, and regularly have missions to rescue freighters from pirates. All loss, no profit = stupid pirate.

Orion Pirates? There are some Orion doing this, but not all of them. That is true for the Nausicaan too like in ENT. So i don't get your point. They are both not members of the federation.

and Nausicaans are peaceful space traders, definitly not known as pirates in the Star Trek universe.

I wouldn't mind it as a crew costume. The mercenary outfit is captain only.

Would fit in with my backstory.

I would have to agree with the majority, that it is a poor decision. I played some WoW and when you are PvE ninja looters really suck! If you don't know what ninja looters are; they follow you around in the game and wait for you to kill a mob, the mob drops some stuff and they run in and scoop it up. It is suppose to be an illegal move but the GM's won't do anything about it.

If the OP meant can you play without faction, no. You are forced to join the Feds just to get the Klingon you really wanted, by then you worked your butt off getting your Fed up to 25 so you really don't want to delete him. Even if you did delete the Fed it won't open a slot for making another Klingon. For $6.25 you can buy 2 more unrestricted slots and make 2 more Klingons.
