Cryptic Studios, the developers of the Star Trek Online MMO, have announced that they have introduced the Ferasan race to their game, allowing gamers who have aligned themselves with the Klingon Defense Force to use them as part of their crew.
The new characters as described as “A felinoid species that originated on the planet Ferasa, Ferasans are closely related to Caitians. Ferasans are bipedal, have tails that assist their balance, extended maxillary canine teeth and large eyes with excellent night vision.
“Their skin is covered with a soft fur coat, and their felinoid ears can pick up frequencies that most humanoids are unable to detect. Some Ferasans have telepathic abilities.”
The species can be made playable for 480 Cryptic Points, which is about 6 dollars or Euro, and the characters based on them get bonuses to jumping, stealth perception, melee damage and exploit damage.
Klingon players of Star Trek Online can also get Ferasan Bridge Officers with the same bonuses, telepathic abilities and a new lunge power.
