Okay...

This may confound a lot of folks but why not add bare chests as a human only cosmetic option as it is for Orions? Maybe do the same for Romulans and Vulcans.

Then all factions have a species that can go shirtless. Maybe look at extending it to Klingons, Remans, and Caitians/Ferasans down the road.

Then it becomes an incentive rather than something they have to do for all aliens and species.

I agree. Still not a permanent fix, but still would have been a nicer option than none at all.


Honestly though, if they weren't going to give us swimwear, they should have waited till next year.

They won't do it because there's no "cannon" on what a Vulcan nipple looks like

STO crossed that 'bridge too far' a long, long time ago.
This. I reached the point where I don't care anymore, for all I care they could buy the SW license from Disney and put Star Destroyers in there. STO is broken in that regard. It doesn't care. It doesn't want. It's just a mildly trek-themed "Second Live" with shooting.

A vulcan nipple cannon? Sounds... eww...

Seriously, why do so many people confuse "canon" and "cannon"? It's not that hard...

It's also just as hard to ignore grammar mistakes, especially when you know exactly what the person means

While I could do so, the "canon - cannon" phenomenon has already surpassed the status of being a "grammar mistake"

by the way, those semi-nude males with six packs and muscular figure are just racist towards obese players. Me thinks it is Cryptics way to promote healthy lifestyle

For it to be considered a "mistake", that implies the writer intended to get it correct in the first place, and, as we all well know, the vast majority just don't have enough self-pride to want to be seen as anything more than mediocre.

Sure there is. Spock was shirtless in "patterns of force". (They might need a hairy chest option though.)
