It would be pretty cool if you could choose the race that your crew is. (Rather than being a puny human) And this would affect the way enemy ships interact with you. For example if you were a alien, then your alien buddies wont attack you you, however then the humans would attack you. Just a thought, I think it would be cool though.

This will be possible in Galaxies because it is much more non-linear and free form a la "The Sims". For the original game we have discussed it, and it is on the wish list, but we always come back to the issue of what does playing as another species bring to the table? Does the story need to change? Is there enough added to the game's entertainment or fun value with just the ability to play as a "skinned" different species? How much extra (story, gameplay mechanics, etc) is necessary, if at all, beyond just a visual change for it to be effective?
