What aliens would you like to see in future installments.

I enjoy the fact that the development team try to expand on material that the Star Trek franchise hasn't explore like the Tzenkethi and the Hur'q. I'm wondering what aleins would you all like to see get more exposure?

I'd like to see the Chodak. They were the villians in a TNG game from the 90s. In the console version they were green men and in the PC version called Star Trek Finale Unity they were giant egg head creatures; they were awesome and I love them. It would be awesome to have villians from a old ST video game return in a game like Star Trek Online.

So what other aliens would you guys like to see?

    Beyond him, Fesarians (aka First Federation, aka the Tranya guy) could be fun in a post-TOS setting. I'd also get a kick of bringing the Wadi back for a one off episode or queue where their tastes have moved on to the STO equivalent of Japanese game shows.

    Well if that's the case. I'm curious if we can see the Allasomorphs (from TNG episode Dauphin) encouter the Changlings.

    Playable Vorta, Wadi, Dosi, Karemma, Pardan, Ennis, Argrathi, Rakhari, Skrrea, and Yaderan for Dominion Faction. It has been said that the Dominion is the "anti-federation" (as opposed to mirror federation aka Terran Empire). There is no reason why that the Dominion Faction cannot be a full fledged playable power on par with the Empire or Federation. All of those species has enough material for Dominion players to have a full fledged character progression.

    considering they have the curtains for the Firt Federation I suspect we will see them sooner than later.. and sad to say, a Lockbox Fesarius

    that said, I don't even care if they are playable, but I would lover to see us revisit some places, like the lava guys that look like lincoln, the gangsters, a trip to the shore leave planet, find out what is going on with Ekos, did they do away with the N A Z Is or did thy eveolve them?

    Yeah, the Allasomorphs would be cool. But so would the Chameloids (Star Trek 6) and the Vendorians (TAS). And don't forget that weird shapeshifting creature that almost got Geordi in TNG (episode Aquiel)? Talk about a heyday of a mission if they were all together with a Founder.

    I want to see more of the Binars and the Proto-Vulcan humanoids. I'd love to see the Binars utilized more effectively into Starfleet and some of the Proto-Vulcan humanoids integrated into the Romulan Republic. Done right, I think it would make an awesome story line.

    Probably would like a species I wouldn't mind using my upgraded weapons on:

    -Sheliak (are they related to Excalbians?)
    -Sphere builders
    -Xindi

    Selay and Anticans, preferably for Romulan and KDF respectively, but anywhere will do.

    It would be nice if they had the rights to the Idryll from Star Trek: Elite Force 2, they are pretty simple since they have pointed ears and glowy eyes. It's too bad that the game doesn't have a glowy eyes option for aliens. Also the Vohrsoth and Etherian aliens from Star Trek - Voyager: Elite Force 1 would be interesting.

    Elite Force is an Activision game series so anything from them is pretty much a "never gonna happen".

    I did say "It would be nice if they had the rights to" ;) I do not expect it would actually happen.

    Both the Anticans and Selay joined the Federation.

    They were prospects for joining the Federation and it was never confirmed if they ever joined the Federation, there was never any mention after the episode that it was the case either with any certainty. it would be nice if there were though.

    Because I like non-humanoid races, so the Sheliaks. They can be allies of the Hur'q (if they can have allies).
  • thevampinatorthevampinator Member Posts: 637 Arc User
    Typhoon Pact, Formation Between the Tholians, Tzenkethi and other races that really hate the alliance powers. Its a concept from the Novels but they can add the formation of it later during this time period to counteract the Alliance.

    Who cares which in the game? The aliens I was hoping to see: "Phoenix Lights" in the night sky here.

    some non humanoids have their own priorities not fully understood by others. it is hard to know what the sheliak are like. we only get a small role from them and that is pretty thin. but good news is that because there isn't a lot on them, cryptic have creative room to use.

    With CBS being the owner of Simon and Schuster, it might only require the various authors to sign off on it otherwise i can't see much reason some stuff from the Typhon pact can't be incorperated into the game. however the STO canon universe would require it to be adapted a bit for the typhon universe to make an apperance.

    The Star Trek Star charts, which Cryptic uses to base its in-game maps off of, lists both Antica and Selay as Federation member worlds.

    "based off" are big words.

    This. While it's probably they joined the Federation, there's a certain irony in neither of them having joined and ending up with other factions. Plus it would add some much needed diversity to the Romulans and give Klingons their first unique addition in ages.

    I'll settle for Federation, though.

    Ive been thinking about the Sheliak as well!

    I believe they have great postential for mini games in a mission dealing with them. Like how we can find loopholes in the "Treaty of Ames" to out wit them.
  • dheffernandheffernan Member Posts: 93 Arc User
    I'd settle for Federation Gorns.
    @Venture-1. @Venture from City of Heroes if you remember that. Yes, that Venture. Yes, I probably trashed your MA arc. You'll have to be specific; for me it was Tuesday.
