We are investigating a bug where some Gold Members may not have received their additional character slot -- details here (Will be fixed ASAP!).
UPDATE! We are also investigating reports of slow patching and are working on a resolution. For a better patch experience, please restart your launcher. It will pick up where it left off and should be faster to complete.

Why not have the vulcans turning against the federation.
Just wait for Cryptic to hire Rick Berman as creative consultant. Then the Vulcans will defect to the Romulans. Or something like that anyway.
To the OP - no. Orions are now established as a KDF species in this game, leave them there. If you want one, get your T4 Diplomacy commendation. She'll even have the Orion costume options. Besides, given the sheer number of them on Qo'nos, I suspect they're actually running the Empire.
