Star Trek Voyager, Season 5, Episode 20. I bring this up because you directly mentioned the Vidiians twice, and even have a picture of them in the blog.

In the episode I mentioned, Think Tank by title, the "Captain" of the Think Tank, Kurros, mentions the Vidiians. He notes the payment they received when they helped cure the Phage. Please keep that in mind if you plan to add the Vidiians to the game.
Except that the Think Tank were shown to be untrustworthy and manipulative; so why would you believe their claim?
Exploration suggestions thread - give it a read

BTW, you'd pronounce it 'Cap'n Manks'

To me, the krenim would be too much the "god-like"/unbeatable race. I would prefer to see something more liek the Kazon or....hey....the Talaxians would be kewl!

Kazon . They were incredibly stupid. But that's why I picked them. I would love to blow up hundreds of their ships and mow down countless minions.

The Krenim are still my favourite antagonists from any point in Voyager's entire run. From the foreshadowing episode with Kes hopping back in time to the final showdown in Year of Hell part 2...

If only the studio had not vetoed the creators' original plan of having that story impact an entire season of Voyager with the ship limping through space with half its decks gutted for an entire year.

Given the awesomeness that was the anniversary story with Tasha and the alternate timeline of Tholian rule in the Beta quadrant... I'd like to see what'd happen if someone found the unfinished design Annorax left for the timeship he "never built", and used it.
Imagine an entire STO season of the Krenim Imperium at the Romulans' gates...

Vidian could be interesting from a post phage perspective. Imagine them trying to rebuild their civilisation and trying to reestablish a good reputation amongst their naighbours.

While this is going on a coalition of other local races who... no longer being afraid of having their organs harvested by a desperate species, have begun a sustained campaign of military vengeance.

I'd also like to know if the coalition of species encountered by Voyager within the Void, managed to lay the groundwork for a Delta Quadrant Federation

It appears that the Krenim Imerpium is winning this poll. I think this is a mistake. We have enough temporal ships and missions in STO currently. The 3 year anniversary event involving the Enterprise C and changes to the timeline resulting in obtaining a ship from the past is more than enough temporal content for the time being. That episode is lengthy anyway. The temporal stuff has been done AT LENGTH...even Star Trek XI (the first JJ Abrams reboot) was all about temporal stuff, changing the timeline....enough with the timeline stuff for right now.

However the Vidiians...now there's a truly disturbing race that wasn't brought to their full potential. Think about this....a zombie like race, with a terminal disease eating them alive known as the Phage, that has developed the technology to simultaneously stun you (or kill you) and remove your organs by phaser. If you don't watch your back, you may just lose your spine, or lungs, or all of your internal organs. Look at what happened to Neelix in ST Voyager Season 1 Episode 5....incredibly disturbing, creepy, and a great storyline and weapons can be developed for STO.

I was thinking it over and I thought Vidiian weapons would be a cool addition to ground combat.

As it stands, injureies happen to you when you die and respawn, but suppose if you had a gun that beamed organs out of a player and had a chance to cause an injury with each attack or on a critical. That would be a cool mechanic for the enemies at least, and interesting for PVP.

Also, suppose the Vidiian technology included things like injury swapping guns that let you dump your injury on someone else? This might be more interesting than simply draining HP.

A gun like this might well complement a Vidiian race that reandomly acquires injuries during play (a Phage trait). Every few minutes you might develop a new injury you could then transpose to an enemy with a Vidiian gun.

With the vidiians being cured, I think they would make an interesting delta quadrant ally.
