# 1 Why no playable Aenar?

Well, as the title states, why do we not get to play as Aenar? It makes me sad...

Alien parts are there for aenar.
  • Choose "Alien" from species menu.
  • Choose traits you want.
  • Enjoy.

Because the Aenar aren't a popular species to consider playing as...?

But then again, neither are the Tellarites, Saurians, Rigellians, and Pakled, so my argument holds no water.

You can use Blindsense and Project Image on "Alien" Playable Characters? My bad...

Of course the real issue being, they are blind, so unless Cryptic figures out some intesting "visual" for the player, it won't be right running around seeing everything like everyone else.
This is not as good as it used to be...

Well, They have heightened senses that allow them to pretty much "See" everything around them without actually seeing. Kind of like how Dare Devil can sense vibrations around him and actually see based off the Pings they make.

From a gameplay standpoint, the Aenar are already playable, you just have to buy to unlock them like the Caitians, Ferasans, Fed Klingons, and KDF Joined Trill. Anyone who plays as them has full visibility just like any other race, nothing changes for the player. It's just an informed ability.

Didn't seem to have a whole lot of trouble in the show, they could even tell colors...

I've got all of the playable character unlocks (unless this was a legacy one that is no longer available) and they are not in my list of playable races. You can get them as a purchasable Bridge Officer (like the Caitians) but not as a playable character.

Heh heh.....

Yeah it's sad, there are a lot of really cool species that could be added without much difficulty. Shame they don't do it.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

Captain Barbri and Admiral Gearr are insulted by this insinuation.
Cloaking generators break down at first sign of language.

Too bad in the ST universe, there is no cure for blindness, something like Eye Implants or some kind of Visor you could wear
