Since I transferred to console I'm having to start over, and my starfleet caitian is almost to 50 now, so I've started looking at alts. On PC I had two fed caitians, a kdf ferasan, a kdf gorn, and two romulan...romulans. Never unlocked reman, I like their character but not particularly their appearance options, and that's all the roms were able to use other than the generic aliens.
On PC a couple of my bridge officers for my fed characters were "cardassian" (Alien boffs customized to look cardassian). Lately I've been tossing around the idea of making a cardassian player character on the romulan faction. My trek lore is a little sketchy and faded but the two seem like they would be similar. Obsidian order/tal shiar, both very sneaky militaristic species with imperial governments, shady and calculating, etc. I cant seem to recall if the two got along in DS9 episodes or if they were at odds.
What do you think of the concept? Cardassian, possibly an obsidian order agent that was working with the tal shiar/romulans at the time of the hobus supernova, ends up fleeing with the rest of the refugees - reman and romulan alike - and winds up with the romulan republic. Seems like the republic would be well aided by a cardassian that can think like their enemies (the tal shiar).
Just looking for opinions =P
