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 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.
