It's unlikely that a 'bounty hunting' system will be up, especially as a species specific option.
The last time I even saw such a feature was in SWG and it had to be gimmicky at best.
Nope, the best we'll get is playable hirogen for the Romulan Republic who wish for, well..
'The continuation of hunting rights in exchange for allegiance against their former hosts.'
Also, if you wish discuss anything more on the matter of playable species, look at this.
Cryptic has been pretty much anti-pvp since beta days (look at complete lack of pvp content in 3+ years) and the one time they try an extremely limited open pvp idea on Tribble, it lasted all of what a week and was swiftly removed, due to a few balance reasons and a quick realization this was never translate well to Holodeck (people would QQ like mad if they got killed while trying to do Doff missions or any other small task).

And here we have another non-consensual pvp lover who should go back to Eve Online where he belongs. Everybody laugh!
How uncalled for! The man was merely expressing an idea about a lore embodied gameplay feature.
Even if it was improbable in the current structure of the game, there's no need for half-guessing.
You probably have no idea who the original poster is, was or will become. It's all hashed out speculation.
So don't make a supposition, an accusation without evidence to prove your case differs to a youth's opinion.
And honestly, if that was an attempt at a joke- the youtube link's title would say otherwise.
You're asking me off the bat for one example? Hmm. I suppose the very existence of
star ships and their related game play features is one such occurrence of a 'lore embodied'
game play feature. The same deal with ground weapons (special or otherwise), no?
