Cardassian faction

I am not sure which thread to put this in. if thsi is not the right place, hopefully, a Mod can move it to the right place?

PC game idea.

When the Cardassians were first introduced, they were a separate faction. Now, somehow, they are only available through the Starfleet or Klingon factions. Can we make them their own faction again?

    Cardassians have never been their own playable faction as far as I know, as for the NPC faction it's still in the game, but the "true way" cardassian faction was never playable.

    A Cardassian (Union) subfaction comparable to LoR sans leveling to 60. The current setup, if said subfaction is planned for the future, is alliance training with UFP/KE in order to assure a friendly and secure full independence for the Union.

    The Dominion subfaction still needs a good deal of TLC, however.

    There was a playable cardassian faction in this game?!? That's new to me. And I am pretty sure to everyone else since that never happened. And they never will be at this point as the race and pretty much all their ships are already in the game. It just does not make sense to make it so.

    idk, all of the ships, sans UFP/KE binary, are accessible to every "faction", so the ships wouldn't be an issue

    per the species unlock, there'll probably be a workaround; if not, probably something similar to my theory

    I don't see why not a Cardassian fraction would eventually come about , esp. given the large amount of assets added during the initial ViL release

    It won't because that particular ship has sailed. they've already been released as a playable species and are currently a fed protectorate, which gives very little in the way of options of what to do story wise for such a faction

    It would not be too difficult to shift the Cardassians to being part of the Dominion as a sort of extra-territorial protectorate (either in conjunction with the Federation protectorate or taking its place) by way of story arc, not that it makes much difference either way since neither the Cardis nor the Doms seem to be going anywhere anyway.

    This, 100%. My Cardassian has his uniform, a full set of Very Rare-quality Cardie Boffs, a full complement of Cardassian Doffs, and a fully equipped Keldon.

    And yet, he feels incomplete due to the simple lack of iconic Cardassian ground weaponry.

    It's kinda silly that we don't have these things yet :frowning:
