Dignitaries from all over the Federation use the services of Starfleet to travel around the Federation. Diplomats need secure means of travel and Starfleet officers recieve training in diplomacy and protocol.

As a result, a variety of diplomatic assignments are available from the Federation Ambassador. You may be sent to receive Andorian Dignitaries, Vulcan Dignitaries, Tellarite Dignitaries, Betazoid Dignitaries, Rigelian Dignitaries, Xindi Dignitaries, Bolian Dignitaries, Caitian Dignitaries, and so on.

But you never get to receive Human Dignitaries.

Do humans not have any dignitaries? Or are human dignitaries not permitted to fly via Starfleet, and have to ride in those Federation Couriers and Transports you see all over the place?

It's about time that we demand equal rights for Humans! Human leaders have a right to participate in Federation politics and a right to be received and transported by Starfleet captains!

We demand a "Receive Human Dignitaries" Doff assignment!

You know Starfleet Command and the Feceration Council are both on the Human Homeworld right? You want Starfleet to recieve Human dignitaries when they are already on the same world as Starfleet and the Federation Council?

That shouldn?t be a reason. The US has a mission and an ambassador to the UN, while Belgium has a mission and a representative to NATO, even though those organizations are in their respective countries.

Maybe the human Dignitaries like flying their own starfleet issued runabouts rather than putz about on big ships that basically say "shoot me" in a war... as opposed to other species who would rather run around on more heavily armed ships during wartime.

I understand this, but that doesn't mean that Human Dignitaries never have to travel anywhere. Humans in the Federation don't just say "we own the Federation so all you aliens must come to us." Human diplomats travel around like all other diplomats. Likewise, there are many human colony worlds in the Federation; Earth is not the only planet that you find humans in Star Trek. Those humans will have to send delegates to the Federation Council like everyone else.

So if Human dignitaries exist in STO then there should be doff missions to receive them. I for one am sick and tired of us humans not getting our due! Call your Federation Councilman now and demand action!

Prior to the Doff system, player's complained often that the game didn't show enough alien diversity amongst the Federation. So the pool of non-human Doff dignitaries was necessary to express this better.

That said, Human dignitaries should be no less likely to participate in some of the Doff missions. And needn't be Federation government level to do so. There are Human-based colonies throughout Federation territory who may need individual representation of some kind. For example,
Nancy Hedford was a Federation Assistant Commissioner in 2267. That year, she was dispatched to Epsilon Canaris III to prevent the outbreak of war. She was a Human who was transported aboard a Starfleet starship. Called Enterprise.

Psiameese(love the name) makes a very good point. There's more to humans in Star Trek than being the work force that holds the Federation together.

Hehe.... the dignitaries thing doesn't apply to the enemy in a "hot" war. :p In STO, the KDF and Romulans are merely people the Federation doesn't like. They're not people who are actively trying to destroy the Federation at all costs.
