This would be my choice too. Weird melted-looking faces & a highly C-storeable Battlecruiser with a unique isolytic subspace weapon.

I'd LOVE the Gorn in STO to look and move like the Gorn from ENT: In A Mirror, Darkly...! More lizard like, more different from other species.

So, --> ENT-Gorn

I could elaborate on things like their possible grudge against the Federation due to events in Insurrection, or that since they have colonies in Cardassian space they would be vulnerable to the new Cardassian/Federation alliance so they decide to ally themselves to the KDF.

But really, I'd love to get my hands on the Son'a Battlecruiser.
Interesting... But how many Son'a are left? They weren't a proper race and were more like renegade Ba'ku. It does sound like an interesting idea though.

Anyways, the point about TOS Klingons is that, unless they were cured, their children would inherit the genetic defects that caused them to look like that. Were most of them cured? yes, ALL? I dunno.

Well I'm largely clueless when it comes to the lore, and the Cardassian thing I picked up from the wiki.

But I do remember that in the Star Trek Armada RTS game one of the first missions was in the Briar Patch - defending the planet from a small Son'a force who attempted to take the planet back. Fun fact, I would always take over the Son'a cruisers so I could command them

This tells me that they do still exist, and they have sufficient numbers/resources to build and crew starships. I can't see it being a problem, STO has cats for goodness sake.

True. The backstory behind the Son'a is that a group of Ba'ku left the Briar Patch and lived in exile outside it somewhere. We don't know exactly where, but we do know they were involved in the Dominion war on the side of the Founders. While in exile, the Son'a conquered two pre-warp races(the Tarlac and Ellora and forced them to work as slaves. It's also been mentioned that they had several "colony worlds" under their control.

So... it's conceivable that some of the could side with the KDF.

Son'a definitely.

Xindi are supposed to become part of the Federation, but I could see Xindi Insectoids and Reptilians joining KDF.

KDF should absolutely get the Son'a, but since the Xindi make decisions as a group, I'm really against breaking up the species like that. I'm also against giving the KDF Insectoids and Reptilians simply because they're ugly.

I would prefer both sides getting access all the Xindi races (minus the Aquatics for obvious reasons).

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

Hmm, maybe, reminds me of the Satarrans somewhat.
