This is what Dan is working on for another edition, so that it will be more compatible with Mutant Future. In the original edition most of the ranged and contact checks are rolling a D20 under an ability. Some require a D6+mod for a few checks. It's light on the rules and not hard to pick up.
I would be interested in playing too Ray. Just let me know when you're ready to go.

I liked the idea of the other races but this seems better, cleaner, streamlined
Atomic Ray wrote:As for the vulcans...it could be argued that Spock represented them best, showing where they could go if they accepted a bit of their latent humanity...the whole point of the exercise right? But yes another vision and approach would be good. I suspect any vulcan willing to surround themselves with other races is going to be a bit different and potentially odd compared to vulcan professed standard...a little less stick up the butt as it were
If using only the input from the original series then agreed the Andorians and Tellerites would be limited be on screen exposure...but we a are creatures of a modern age with further works being done to explore these other potentials and celebrate what could have been...I am on board with these thoughts.
But I did concede to your original thought that the races offered were a bit too much in the realm of accepting the after canon options...but I feel the four above offer a relative and reasonable slice of what could have easily been based upon full consideration of what we know now of then
As for the other guys...
I would think:
romulan...deception, heightened focus, discipline, empathic, +2 STR/INT +1 CHA
klingon...(a tough one as the old school version was so different) stress/change resistant, heightened smell/taste, deception, +2 STR/DEX/CON -1 CHA
orions...(again a tough one without considering after canon) empathic, deception, detect lie (smell), +1 STR/DEX/CON/WIS/LUCK
