If we're talking about BOffs, the Leadership trait is broken, Efficient is rare AND trivial (I only have it on a Borg BO), and I don't have anyway to get the Veteran traits. On the ground, the Photonic MACO (which I don't own but have seen) has good traits. The Android can get by without an EV suit and its self-rez has pulled me back from situations where a respawn would be needed. The Jem'Hadar is also nice.
If we're talking about Captains, I hate choosing between ground and space. I think space traits are a bit more trivial but ground traits tend to be situational and trivial.
I'd really not shed a tear if they scrapped all existing traits and tied better versions of them into species rep systems, provided you start out maxed with your own species and custom aliens maybe get faster rep progression -- or a choice of free rep in the factions(s) of their choice -- as their core trait.
You can see if when you have one of the little 'apadted to' stamped on your status, this case, 'adapted to TOXINS' >.>. .....
They adapt to the DOT aspect, but if you Exploit with your bite the kinetic damage right up front can easily reach hundreds so I don't find this much of a drawback. Borg don't adapt to your teeth. :>

Use it on an Exposed enemy and you'll be impressed. Same way with sniper rifles and beam rifles. The secondary attack on those weapons is pretty underwhelming until you hit somebody who's Exposed and take them out with one shot.
I didn't forget Pacification though, that ability is only on Betazoid BOFFs, not characters.
That all aside, Letheans could use some love of some kind, they don't have any ships or costumes unique to them. I don't think Ferasans do either.
-100% sure male orions can seduce people (players and Boffs can get it)
My orion Eng uses my the seduce... wait... weapon malfunction combo on elite tactical drones , the animation is kinda like he is performing a magic trick or hypnotism >.>' kinda wanted a man blowing a kiss for lulz XD
- I'm pretty sure betazoids can get it as an activatable trait, because i was all upset that my first toon - male betazoid sci, was lacking a power/skill to mess with :p EDIT: after checking sto wiki, it appears i am wrong
-Yeah.. letheans are unloved.. hence my one having that accident , what i would have LOVED would be a hood. makes you look sinster and hides that face only a mother could love hehe.. plus you dont even get kill accolades for letheans if memory serves, you do nausicans/orions and all the other KDF Mob enemies.. leatheans dont have costume pieces or ships too *sigh* even species in the kdf arn't fully fleshed out 2years down the line

Having a couple of race-only specific abilities is OK considering, but forcing someone to have an ability is not.
The Somraw, K'tinga, D'Kyr, D7, Kumari, Xindi carrier, Xindi escort, and the T'Varo are all older than the Constitution Refit and yet they are tier 5. The Constellation is made up primarily of Connie refit parts and it is tier 5, there is no logical reason whatsoever for the no tier 5/6 connie rule.
