# 1 New Playable Races
06-16-2013, 10:43 PM
It's been a long time since any have been added (other than Romulan and Reman, but that's a whole new story progression and everything, I'm just talking about additional races for existing factions) This is my list:

RR: Suliban I'm guessing this is the soon-to-be-released race.
KDF: Yridian There was talk some time ago about a playable Yridian species, and since at least some of them had some affiliation to the KDF in one of the new missions, they could be a KDF race. That would give them access to race that could have a lobes-like ability for EC/Latinum discounts.
Antedean Worf thought they were "glorious." So, why not? I think they're pretty cool and would be fun to see in-game. (As long as I can get one as my Diplomatic reward for my fed character lol) It could be explained in the Race Info that they have developed something (whether medicinally or technologically) that makes space-flight comfortable for them.
UFP: Deltan Don't tell me it'd be hard to make bald, red-blooded Orions.
Idanian This enigmatic race is the one that I most want to see in-game, truth be told. I need an Idanian boff to complete my crew!

It's a big universe, let's diversify!
Great News!

It's pronounced "S.T.O." "Stow" sounds idiotic! lol

UFP: Medusan. I will name him Oscar and he can live in his can on my bridge. I'll feed him and walk him every day, no foolin'

I have been asking for this for over 3 years. Throw me a frickin bone
I'll sell you some weapons from New Romulus. Never fired, only dropped once.

I'd like to see the Hirogen as a playable RR race. Its been established on Voyager that there are a lot of Hirogen tired of being nomads. The main Hirogen forces are allied with the rapidly declining RSE, so one can easily envision a disgruntled group of Hirogen splintering off, settling down, and allying with the RR.

I'd actually like to see a bit of Racial Proliferation instead of new races. There's not really that much reason to not have, for instance, Federation Orion or Gorn, or Klingon Empire Ferengi or Pakleds or Humans, etc, etc. Maybe keep the Vulcans/Andorians/Tellarites unique to the Federation, and the Letheans and Nausicaans unique to the Klingons?

Considering how often KDF players claim female Orions as a reason to play KDF, I think giving Orion as an unlockable Fed race would greatly upset them.

I don't know about that, but I'd definitely like to see some bridge officer races more readily available. I have Orion, Romulan, Vorta, Cardassian, even Hirogen etc Duty Officers in plenty, but getting them as Bridge officers can be increadibly difficult if not outright impossible.

it wasnt glorious, it was "a handsome race" if i remember right.

there are plenty other races to explore, assuming cryptic stay true to their word about the delta quadrant and gamma quadrants at some point, doubtless the jem'hadar and such will be opened out like the kazon and devore..

"KDF gets orion slave girls, fed could get regular orions, then again you already can make one playing as an alien anyway(or getting alien boffs).

i mean the orions ARE a part of the federation.

Okay first your choices
Suliban I agree these would be a good addition to RR as they also are part of the first RR mission and help us and trade with the RR character when you get the suliban cell ship to trade with.

Yridian: Rumour has it on Memory Alpha that it may be a fed playable character now I know things change but maybe Yridian can be a cross faction for fed and kdf since they go to whoever gives the highest profit. However they are a wanted species by Klingons so not sure whether the KDF will be to friendly to these.

Antedean: Even though Worf found them handsome they find space travel disturbing and go into a catatonic state so this type of species would be useless as any kind of character

Deltans: The only way I can see Feds getting playable Orions but not really a fan of these unless we can get one that looks like the V'ger probe Deltan

Idanian: Not seen much of these so can't comment


I personally would like to see the Jem Hadar as a playable race connected to the KDF faction (as a cardassian faction may be a few years away) due to there mutual respect to each other as warriors.
