    Not on the list, but as a potential villian or even ally. I would not mind seeing the Sheliak from tng. Here is a look at race depiction, and the colony ship they used in the episode. As a non-humanoid race it would be interesting to see.

    As unlikely as they will be, I still would like Cardassians. Which I'm guessing will be ran into in season 2 or 3 of TRIBBLE, which will turn them green and they will lose their signature spoon...

    While I'd like to see more factions. It's been stated, if they're instituted they'd be the same on LoR and AoY. A mini-faction.

    But, in general here, don't take the Faction someone used to create a character, as that characters faction. This is mainly for Role playing and bios.

    Take for instance. I have a Rom-Fed Alien and a Rom-KDF Alien. Neither of these aliens actually represent any of the factions we have. I just used those factions for costumes and ships.

    None.

    Why? Because it would just suck. They would make these 'new factions' give them 4 or 5 unique missions to start and then make them feds like they do with the Romulans and Klingons.

    Illusion of choice is not actual choice. If they could make these as actual factions.. then that would be one thing, but I think we all know they can't/won't. Better off to just not even bother.

    I agree either devote the time to make them their own faction or just leave them alone. Plus i'd imagine Cardies, Dominion, Tzenkethi, Breen, Tholians, Ferengi, Xindi are pretty much off the table due to their primary ships being lockbox or lobi.

    Part of playing one of this species for me is flying the ships that appear in the show. Universally affordable and obtainable Galor/Keldon/Bugships ect will be missing for the shipyards/C-Store which is a turn off for me right there.

    Working in Customer Services is a lot like a Michael Bay or J J Abrams film. The story is all over the place, its contradicts its own continuity, it can be hours of mindless entertainment or boring subplot, with lots of noise, explosions and action, and is something you don't fancy viewing for a 2nd time 🤣🙉🤭

    Cryptic has stated several times that the only species with enough of a fanbase ty warrant even a mini-faction like AoY are
    -Cardassians
    -Ferengi
    -Jem'Hadar
    -Borg Cooperative

    Actually, Cryptic has said they would never do a LoR sized faction again because it would be impossible to catch them up at this point.

    While not explicitly stated, they likely are referring to ships. When LoR came out there were just normal ships, but since then they have all sorts of Intel, command, pilot, miracle worker, and bundles like multi-mission, flagship, dyson destroyers, etc, etc.

    There would be no way to catch a new LoR sized faction up at this point without basically doing nothing else content wise for the game for like a year, and that simply isn't viable.

    Not to mention, there would be massive outcry over the fact Cryptic would then have to go back, add all these new ships to existing bundles, and thus, jack up the prices on all the bundles to account for it. Making everything much more expensive in the process.

    Tholians wouldn't happen period due to being non-humanoid, and Xindi are canonally part of the Federation.

    The only way I could see them doing a Lor style faction, to a more full on faction in the likes of the Fed/KDF would be to do it in a form of paid expansion set-up., or a kickstarter style funding situation. I think it is a combination of money, and also just man-power, they would need to hire a second team that would work on such faction expansions, while the main team works on pushing the current content forward. The question would be if players would be willing to pay 50-60 dollars for a faction expansion pack an be profitable. That would have a set of new races, new missions, some ships, and maybe some new mechanics possibly.

    I could see race expansions though. Like a small pack that you buy to give you the ability to make a character of a new race, as well as potentially maybe a small set of side-missions related to them an maybe a ship related to them. An example of this would be the Cardassians as a race-pack that gives you access to a set of three missions detailing events an why you are leaving Cardassia, at the end of which you would need to ally with one of the three main factions like the Romulans just on a smaller scale.

    Breen - to be honest though, I'd settle for being able to play as a Breen.

    I’ve always fancied a freelance faction, so you can pick which story to follow at the start and can choose which sides version of the later stories you do.
    Something where you can play STO but not be trapped into playing as part of the big 3 which don’t really appeal to some people.

    Voth!

    As just a playable species for the existing factions would be great too.

    @party popper: thank you - carefully, you craft uncanny representations of actual Lukari ships (so small yet so real) so that I may shoot them annoyingly in the face of my main rival (in his faaacceee)

    Finally going to give up that chair, Quinn? Hm?

    What they could do is create the parts and costumes of each species and attach them to the tailor to be used when you create an alien character. If they want to monetize this put each species as a bundle in the C-store.

    Would allow you to create a cannon looking character and crew to fly the various lockbox/promo/event/lobi ships they released.

    They could also expand the Federation members this way, after all the Federation as of ST. Insurrection is made up of 150 members.

    Do you mean a Civilian faction? (Bounty Hunters, Privateers, Traders etc.)

    We kicked their TRIBBLE just recently, I can imagine them holding a grudge.

    Absolutely no new faction. I'd rather see new content that expands existing factions. Seriously, do people want to play as a Cardassian or Jem'Hadar for at best half a dozen episodes before you're jammed into working for the Federation or the Klingons? Can you imagine a Dominion faction that did that?

    @marty123#3757 sort of a civilian faction I guess yeah.
    So that you would be given a variety of civilian cargo ships or private security vessels to pick from, but could still purchase the top end lockbox and Lobi stuff as it’s sild to all players.

    This also, I have a number of Roms, both Fed and KDF aligned, having an actual Rom, and not just a Fed or KF with a different look and limited ship options would be awesome, although I think the fact that things like Fleets, most STFs etc being Faction specific would make it either impossible, or way too expensive to do. I seem to remember reading somewhere that the current game engine only allows for two actual distinct factions, but that was a long time ago and I'm kinda old and senile.
