# 1 The Magnificent Ferengi
01-31-2010, 03:58 PM
If I remember correctly, The Ferengi were going to be a playable STO race, aligned with the Federation. When I logged in during Open Beta they were not available as a choice.

As an interested party, I was wondering, are the Ferengi coming later on down the road? Will the Ferengi Alliance rise up and dominate (economically, of course) the Alpha Quadrant?

I, for one, would welcome the opportunity to seek profit amongst the Starfleet or any other faction for that matter. Rule of Acquisition #35 comes to mind: "War is good for business!" There's war afoot, profits to be had, but where are the Ferengi (besides the merchants)?

I once heard that the Ferengi were even playable during the closed beta, but as I did not experience that myself, I have no way of knowing whether it is true or not.

Ferengiphiles need to take heed of Rule of Acquisition #45: "Expand, or die." It's time for aggressive expansion here, people.

In closed beta, the Ferengi were a playable race. I think the reason they took them out was some graphical issue they were having. Not entirely sure, but I agree they should be back in. If we can have Ferengi bridge officers, I fail to understand why we cant have Ferengi playable characters.

the cynical part of me wonders if they will available as microtransaction. It would be ironic that the Ferengi would be sold separately.

Sounds like a Ferengi is running the show down in Marketing if that ends up being the case!

I see no acceptable excuse as to why they did not manage to fix them within a month..
Yes they were in CB.

They replaced them with a bunch of Generic humanish races... betazoid etcetc.
