Yep...to be honest when I first considered the S&S usage I did not realize it was so different and the new version I understand will be compatible with L&L and MF.
I am fine with using the L&L/MF standard set up
A quick thought...not to distract from our Old School Trek theme, it is just a question...what aliens from beyond the original series stand out for you for potential characters?
There are so many I know but surely one or two jump out at you.
I of course still like the Andorians...but I like the other blue meanies, Bolians.
I thought about them when Gentleman mentioned the environmental requirements...Bolians have caustic inner biology, it has been noted that their processed food exports caused all kinds of issues with the ships disposal systems.
But I like the Bolians for the blue skin and the center ridge/cleft.
