The problem with this is, it is their blindness that allows for their other senses to be strong and superior, if the blindness were to go away, their previous strengths would weaken to balance.

I think its more likely they are not playable, because well they are rare outside their little caves, not even sure why they made them as bridge officers.

On a side note: If Romulans ever get their own faction, they should be able to enslave some of these guys, haha.

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.
Wait, wait, your right. You jogged my memory a little bit. It is only for the bridge officer, isn't it? yeah the race itself isn't playable, not that the informed blindness would actually present any change in gameplay for such a species.

A few of the traits are not available as others have mentioned. I don't like my characters to be labeled as 'Aliens' anyway. I prefer the real McCoy, whether it be a Romulan, Cardassian, or Aenar.

Nice, good find. From Memory Alpha: "The Aenar were completely blind yet had the ability to "see"".


If they ever implement the whole Boff to Captain thing, I would imagine that would be a route one could take. I would be skeptical about them adding them anytime soon though. I am still waiting for Benzite Boffs...

It's a roleplaying game.

Why don't you close your eyes and roleplay you're an Aenar?

It would be IP accurate.

It's called "bad writing".

But it's more likely she just knew what Shran looked like from Shran's own mind.

JHAMEL: I came here to apologise.
SHRAN: For what?
JHAMEL: When I saw you for the first time, I sensed some of your thoughts. I didn't intend to.
SHRAN: It's never been all that hard to figure out what I'm thinking.

My understanding is that they want you to have to use a "First Officer to Playable Captain conversion" to play as any rare or exotic species., once they add that feature.

Hence why there are so many exotic BOs.

There aren't enough though, there will never be enough!

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