What species of boff not available would you be most interested in?

Some look into boffs for their traits to min/max power. Some build their crew that best fits their "Head RP". Since we wouldn't know what kind of traits any new boffs would get, this poll caters more to the latter. So which boffs would you like to be able to add to your crew?

I don't differentiate between "Free from start", "unlockable", "C-Store" or "as an accolade/for completing a mission". So I am not talking about "being able to get more Breen" - you can get Breen, even if only occasionally, so that's settled. This is also only about boffs, available species for captains would be a different matter entirely.

If you chose "other", feel free to specify. Unfortunately I had to trim it down to 10 options, so some had to be excluded (including "unlimited cross faction access")

    I always wanted a pet Elachi, so ...

    Also it would be nice to get Benzite for Feds and Suliban for Roms (the latter would also be a nice addition to their captain base for more diversity).

    Tholian! Closest I have is the pets, which are freaking adorbs when they're running to catch up with you on those stubby little legs. They remind me of Peridot.

    How about they add in female benzites.

    I forgot about the fact that Tholian's need ev suits so I think I should've picked other.

    Cardassians would be nice or even better Klingons/Andorians/whatever with 2 good space traits !

    Are there male benzite boffs available? That would be news to me. Welcome news though.

    As for captains, they can be female (I have one).

    Where's the Hierarchy? I vote for that!

    Some would be almost impossible to integrate to the game, ever seen a Tholian with Winterfest gear?

    The latter is true. I wouldn't say no to him anyways.

    About the former: you can get a Hierarchy boff by playing the "Alliances" mission from the Delta Rising arc.

    On a sidenote I played on PC after launch and remember when the Breen arc first came out one of the rewards was a Breen boff(i think it was suppose to be the onein the cell you spoke to) . When I started on Xbox more recently I wanted to get him again but seems he has been removed and cannot even buy him on cstore.

    Is it still possible to get a Breen boff?

    On PC yes. Occasionally (let's say "rarely", twice in the four years I'm here) a "featured episode replay" event is held, where, amongst other goodies out of normal play, you can get the Breen by playing the last episode of the Breen arc. Wouldn't be too surprised if that'd come to the console, too, but probably they'll be waiting until a decent enough amount of the playerbase can get them.

    Vorta
    I wouldn't mind a Vorta to go along with the Jem'Hadar we already have, preferably not as a limited time reward.

    A Tactical version could include the Telekinetic blast.

    I would definitely like to see Cardassians as both boff, and player character options. It would actually work too as some Cardassians would want to leave Cardassia like ex-soldiers, and if done either at the end of a Cardassian story-arc or a c-store option would be good. The same with the many Delta an gamma quadrant races.

    IT might be weird though i would love to have a Binar boff, even if the fact of having two of them out was only cosmetic.

    Thanks for the input. I do remeber one featured episode soon after I started that was the Martok/Sona mission. At the time I had thought this was a weekly thing and you got an upgrade token or spec point each week per account. I HAD thought at the time the featured episode was a weekly thing ie. a different (not new just existing one) was featured each week. Havent seen it since and instead we have the Endeavour which is boring and has menial task attached.

    There's a regular FE with rewards for the newest episode (it is in your journal as a "Featured Episode"), this is something different. The rerun of four older featured episodes (Breen boff from Breen arc mission "Cold Storage", Reman boff from Romulan arc "Cutting the Cord", Ophidian Cane from "Night of the Comet" of the Spectres arc (part of Klingon War for Feddies) and Shard of Possibilities from "Boldly they Road" of the Cardassian arc) is irregular and usually not largely advertised if you don't read the homepage or the announcements in the forums. There's an info in the launcher, but those are easily missed. They will NOT appear in the "Featured Episode" tab or be otherwise highlighted in game. Also, you have to play (or skip on later characters) every mission before them to be able to play them, so you cannot play them out of order like the standard FEs.

    On the PC the last rerun just happened, with consoles "lagging a few weeks", maybe they'll come soon.

    Deferi
    I'd like Deferi. I substitute with aliens, but since they still play a role and haven't been removed from the game I really like some.

    My "other" option would have been Grazerites, the UFP president was one at one point after all.

    I voted 'other', because I can't choose between Cardassian and Vorta (I have aliengen versions of both) but what I would like to see introduced, is Tzenkethi boffs, closely followed by Son'a boffs :sunglasses:

    And while we're talking not-going-to-happen-what-ifs, I would really like it if:
    -I could put my Romulan Embassy boffs in Starfleet or Republic uniforms :sunglasses:
    -I was able to promote boffs to captain, and have them wear a fourth collar pip :sunglasses:
    -Rinna Khev boff for first completion of Installation 18 (VR Engineer) (Because Everyone deserves at least one Romulan boff, regardless of if their fleet has Embassy Access (I've already done a custom version, and would be willing to share the template with the devs, if it would help make this happen :sunglasses:)
    -Hassan the Undying boff* (VR Tactical) (Only availably upon first playthrough of The Undying, not replays, and only if choosing to allow Hassan to live on said playthrough (He does say that his life is The Player's, so why not have him as a boff???)
    -The game's original starting boffs to be available. (Not T'Vrell, Zarva, and Kolez, but the ones before... I believe one was an Andorian? Proposal: timetravel mission with Captain Walker (or even Captain T'Vrell), where The Player has to prevent Something From Happening at the Academy in 2408. Player is given a holo-projector of the Cadet Uniform for the duration, and upon completion, can select which of the boffs they want, replaying the mission till they have the full set of all four original starting boffs)

    Fun-fact: Ripper was a real full crew member of the Discovery named Ephraim after the guy who discovered real-life tardigrades, and Stamets' superior in a previous draft of DIS. Also, he'd even have a special uniform and station just for him. But it was deemed too expensive.

    I'll blame the overly-complex and most likely very expensive to make new design of the Klingons causing such a ridiculously cool idea to be dropped.
