3. Ask Cryptic: January 2013
In this brand-new edition of Ask Cryptic, Executive Producer Dan Stahl delivers answers to player submitted questions. 
Q: (keeny75) Will / Can there be a way to change the species that we are? When I first joined STO I opted for human than later on you released playable Caitian faction in the c-store. I would love to be a Caitian but I don’t want to start again from scratch to do it.
Dstahl: Now that we are working on a way to respec your traits, this is one option we are considering, but we haven’t made a final decision. We generally aren’t looking for players to be able to swap their species back and forth as easily as a respec, but we do appreciate that some players may have made a decision that they would like to change. Once we get the Trait respec in game, we will make a call on whether we will open up this option. If there are others that feel strongly about this, it would be good to see some of opinions in the forums.

1. “A Klingon Honor Carol” by soriedem
Faction: Klingon
Level Requirement: 31+
Mission Summary: “A Klingon Honor Carol” is loosely based on Charles Dickens’s ‘A Christmas Carol’, but with a Klingon twist. It is narrated by Worf and the player takes the role of a dishonorable Klingon Warrior named Scourge. 

2. “First Cause, Then Effect” by RogueEnterprise
Faction: Federation
Level Requirement: Any
Mission Summary: A member of the Federation council on board personal transport has failed to report in after a morale boosting visit to the front lines in the Neutral Zone, along with her Starfleet escorts.
While the ship was lost in a rather strange area of space, killing a Federation dignitary would make an excellent trophy for any Klingon warrior…
