OOC: Changes to Playable Species

November 04, 2017 - After consideration the approved species for the 16th Fleet have changed. While previously there were restricted canon races several of those races have since been removed from the restriction. Races that are now unrestricted include:

Betazoid
From Betazed, the Betazoids are a highly telepathic species who value openness and honesty. Betazoids have few differences from other humanoid species except for an additional lobe in their brains and black irises on their eyes.
Ferengi
Natives of the rain soaked planet Ferenginar, the Ferengi are a short humanoid species with large ears, orange skin, and enlarged skulls. Their four-lobed brain makes them resistant to telepathy and gives them a strong organizational ability, traits essential for a culture built on the ideals of free enterprise and profit.
Gorn
The stubborn and territorial natives of Gornar, the Gorn are extremely stronger and taller than other humanoids. With slitted silvery eyes, sharp teeth, claws on their hands, and scaled green rubbery skin, the Gorn were conquered by the Klingon Empire in the late 24th Century.
Joined Trill
Coming from the world of Trill, the Joined Trill are a humanoid race indistinguishable from their fellow Trill. They are different in that they have been bonded with a Symbiont - a lifeform that contains the collected knowledge and skills of all its former hosts.
Klingon
A proud warrior race from Qo'noS, the Klingons can be identified by their cranial ridges, dark skin, muscular build, and multiple redundant organs. Feared and respected throughout the Milky Way Galaxy, the Klingons are the dominant race of the Klingon Empire and value tradition, honor, and strength.
Orion
Originating from the planet Orion, the Orion species is a matriarchal society where the women dominate the men through the emission of highly powerful pheromones. Conquered by the Klingon Empire, the Orions are a green skinned species who are still involved in multiple underworld dealings through their control of the Orion Syndicate.
Reman
Formerly a slave race from the world Remus, the Remans are telepathic humanoids with a colorless, almost translucent skin. Incredibly resilient and strong, the Remans are highly affected by light.
Romulan
From the now destroyed world of Romulus, the Romulans are an offshoot of the Vulcan race and are highly skilled at deception. Romulans are genetically and physically identical to Vulcans except for a cranial ridge that has evolved on their foreheads which can be offset by intricate tattooing - a sign of remembrance of their lost homeworld.

Talaxian characters remain restricted to the USS Atlantis and the USS Hippocrates however due to those vessels operating in the Delta Quadrant.
