Hi,

Now I'm not saying there definitely will be a new playable species available to the KDF by season 8, but let's all assume there will be and gather some feedback for Cryptic.

Take some time and have a look through this list of Alpha and Beta Quadrant species (click).

Now simply choose three and no more, then state why you have chosen those species and I will update this post to show the results.

Also feel free to discuss which species you would NOT like to see in the KDF, but remember to respect other forum members opinions.

Cheers,

kalecto

None. Kdf need ships. Fersan. Lethean. They don't need new races

Race change, before adding more species. Cryptic forces us to grind rep on few toons only. Why should I create new toon if I'm forced to invest so much time to single one ?

You're derailing my thread; please stay on topic.

You will have new ships and you will have a race change option, one day in the future...

Antedeans.

They're kinda like the Klingon equivalent of Mermaids. They would play a similar role to Orion slave women, as concubines and assassins. They're sure to make every pink blooded Klingon warrior weak at the knees!

xindi reptiles and insectoids would be epic, while the feds get the humanoid ones. (dont think anyone will realistically get the aquatics)

or the Son'a, although thats really only to try and get their ships in as well.

Heh, someone is optimistic. Here's hoping they wont throw a price at us to use any new implemented race, though it's almost certain that they will.

I'd vote in the Talarian; they're known to be a warrior-based species, and they're not overly fond of the Federation (they've had several hostile encounters with them in the past). I could see them aligning themselves with the Imperial Empire if it benefited both factions.

Whilst this would work, it kind of goes against what we know of 29th Century Law where the Xindi are all part of the Federation (inc the Klingons). That said, I would believe the Xindi would stick together after the events of the expanse and attack on Earth. I don't see them being too eager to split up and be on opposite sides of a war just yet.

They've managed to put the Tholian in EV Suits.

I know this is thinking well ahead, but I'd rather save the Son'a for a Romulan accomplice, should we ever be privileged enough to see a Romulan faction.

This thread is for forum members to discuss new playable KDF species options.
The first couple of responses do have valid points though. What is the point in adding new races when they can't take the time to give us more KDF content? In my opinion, the sole reason the KDF faction numbers are so low is because Crytpic continiously takes away instead of adding to the faction. Before launch, there were a lot of players interested in the KDF side of things and I have 2 toons leveled on the old system. The old system encouraged PvP as an alternative to repeating the same missions that side. Cryptic was supposed to fill in the gaps over time but instead, they strip the faction of everything that makes it unique. There were some great stories in the KDF missions that could definitely be expaneded upon.

We all know that Cryptic is oblivious to KDF fans, though let us at least entertain the idea here shall we?

It's not about changing the subject, the answer to your question is simple NONE. Creating new species requires resources, people and time to work on. The effort would be much more better spend on race change feature, so people can actually use the "new" (see those after-launch) species for their old toons in which they invested too much time.

What's the point of adding new species if you cannot use them on your current toons ?

It's like when the game launched, and people who bought the deluxe edition couldn't use joined trill on KDF side for months.
