Hello so i am starting a new federation tactical charachter, and i am not sure who to pick, caitians or klingon, who would you pick and why?
Frankly, if you want to play a Klingon, join the KDF. Klingons are FREE there.
The only thing special about Caitioans/Ferasans is the increased jump (with most grounds having been "Catproofed" to prevent getting a character stuck) and their Pounce (which is just a half strength version of Lunge).
There's no mechanical advantage between the two, so it just comes down to aesthetics. Pick the one you think you'll enjoy looking at more.
I'd say if you're on the fence, make a Ferasan.
I didn't buy them because I never wound up playing my Caitian to begin with; I probably would have bought them if they unlocked an extra Klingon costume for my Klingon though, just to show support.
In general, I don't buy every ship. I like ground more. But I'll buy any costume or species you wave in my face. Less so on species now because I have over 10 alts. To get me to buy more species, they'd need to add some kind of value for my existing alts, include a character slot, or be SO COOL that I'd be willing to buy a character slot to play them. (Ie. linked Bynars where you have two characters as your avatar, Edosians, Avians, Cardassians if they include a uniform, etc.)
I had a caitian boff for a while... I liked him despite the fact he scratched up all the doorframes on my ship and occasionally sprayed on the furniture... but then he ate a bunch of the planted rhododendrons in my cabin, got really sick and we had to have him put to sleep... I'll miss you Commander Fluffy
