I was looking at the various premade NPCs and I find the description for Elachi Lieutenant Scanner 01:

EXTERMINATE!
EXTERMINATE!
He does look a little bit like a Dalek if you squint real hard...

There's actually a lot of funny costume descriptions

Check out my Foundry missions:
Standalone - The Great Escape - The Galaxy's Fair - Purity I: Of Denial - Return to Oblivion
Untitled Series - Duritanium Man - The Improbable Bulk - [WIP] Commander Rihan

It's funny because they start our dry enough, but as you go through you can see whoever was originally catalog these get bored and started writing funny back stories for them.

Isn't there a Romulan female in the Foundry where they're discribed as "Someone once said she looks a lot like Empress Sela - that person hasn't been seen since"?

I'm beginning to think the current 'two seasons a year' set-up needs to be rethought. It just seems to cause incomplete and bug-infested 'seasons' to be pushed out just to meet an artificial summer/winter deadline when many players would be fine getting one 'season' a year if it meant that it would be a really good one...

Been trying to document them all on STOwiki here. I still have a long way to go, but it's coming along.

Some of those descriptions are hilarious. My personal favorite it "His mother wanted to name him Peter; fortunately for him, his father won that argument" for the Fek'Ihri Chieftain.

Some of them are almost too funny for words.

But there's also some thought-provoking ones; like the Jem'hadar that's described as having freed himself from Ketracel White...

Yeah, and with the release of LoR that one got updated to match the new appearance of Sela.

The Jem'Hadar was probably a reference to Goran'agar

MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.
