I'm trying to figure out wy people are obsessed with flying cubes and spheres. if the borg were a playable race they would be limited to spheres and probes since cubes are wayy to big for player ships.

Curse you Archived Post.... you stole all my Ideas.
Ok we all know we want the romulans to have as a playable species, but witch one would you like to join to....
I would like to see as a playable species :
Maybe some minor species on there own without aid off the Feds or Klingons :
Witch species you like to play with an story line let us know !!
Ah, the Mintakan's don't have warp drive and are now protected by the Federation after they buggered up a mission of quiet observation.
I'm happy with my Gorn, but I'd like that reptile race to replace my FED Catian, the ones on board when that entity got aboard the Enterprise and tried to merge with Picard in the energy cloud. You know the ones with the cool tails. They kind of looked like cobra's.
Normally, I'd have said the Cardassians as a 4th playable species, but honestly, I don't think their current empire is in the correct state to be of any substantial threat to anyone just now. I would instead incorporate Cardassians (at least Bridge Officers) into the Federation and Romulan factions. I'd leave them out of the KDF (Klingons and Cardassians have never really got along, not even Worf and Garak managed to do so).
Although I would be more than happy with just the Federation, Klingon and Romulan, if we were to have a fourth, for me, it would have to be a Dominion one; and I'm talking Gamma Quadrant Dominion. They'd need to be their own faction though; in that they're not specifically at war with anyone, but they're protecting the founders. Have a sector (or three) where all their main missions are (though make them within the Gamma Quadrant). Access to the rest of the current galaxy can be through the wormhole.
Obviously you've got the ships, and you've got the species. Vorta and Jem Hadar are a given, and you could have the Dosi and Karemma (among others) as secondary species. I know the Karemma are primarily traders, but I'd suspect they'd make good engineers too. From what I remember about the Dosi, they remind me of Klingons. Brawling on the streets and the like, plus they're somewhat aggressive.
Edit: I wish people would quit asking about a Borg Faction. It wouldn't work. Unless you play as the Queen (then you'd be one Queen of many) you're looking at a non-borg playing borg species.
