    That's intended - he refuses to wear anything but his own unique outfit and you can't rename his outfit either.
    If you want to rename him, you need to do it in the character sheet (U).

    I dont want to rename him. I want to modify his outfit to match the rest of the crew. He really stands out.

    I once made a false claim that I was able to edit his gear when I acquired him with my Jem'Hdar/Dominion guy...but then I found out that I never even commissioned him. I now feel like an idiot.

    This BOFF, as well as several others, is intentionally not editable. (the Hierarchy Science BOFF is another example, also the Breen BOFF, most hologram BOFFs, etc.)

    The Kobali BOFF is editable but you can't change her head, only her clothing.

    Its an intentional bug then.

    The hierachy and voth boff are probably not editable because of some parts of their body dont work with our clothing. Like hands, feet and head. But the chest, arms and legs are the same. I can accept that.

    But this jemhadar is using the same body parts as our jemhadar toons. Same with the borg boffs. The only two reasons to prevent us from editing them are "we dont want you to edit them" and "we are too lazy to fix any issues so we disabled the edit feature for them".

    This boff was added to the game in 2013, long before we had playable Jem'Hadar and other Jem'Hadar Bridge Officers.
    He was unique, and as such is locked into the one outfit.

    Not an intentional bug

    An intentional inconsistency, because Cryptic doesnt care too, and CBS/Paramount wont put them in their place with issues like this.

    Some holo boffs can be edited, some cant.
    The Klingon MW boff can, but is broken, the exact same but Fed version can and isnt broken.

    Holo The Doctor can be edited, but TOS holo boffs cant be.

    Its TRIBBLE.

    Make it consistent or TRIBBLE off cryptic.

    There is no such thing as "an intentional bug". A bug is, by definition, something that is not working as it is designed to work.

    How you want it to work, and how it is designed to work, may not be the same thing, but that does not make it a bug.

    Call it what you will. Its bad for the game either way. Nitpicking wont help.

    Telling the proper definition of what a bug is and not your perception of what a bug is, is not nitpicking. Bugs by definition are not intentional.

    This is an intentional thing with this particular boff and is working as intended until Cryptic says otherwise. Its been that way since this guy was given to us. We can debate whether or not we should be able to edit his outfit, but facts are right now we can't. By definition a bug is an unintentional issue that pops up with the code that can be gamebreaking, or relatively benign and harmless. This is an intentional thing and is not a bug until a time you hear Cryptic say otherwise.
