So, Tholian lockboxes with a bunch of Tholian ships to fly...

I don't mind lockboxes, but humanoids flying Tholian ships is just too much imho.

How could you ever make a ship designed for tholian physiology habitable for humanoids??
Gut the control rooms, wire in Starfleet control panels and a life support system. You can use everything else as-is.

Maybe you have to wear one of those environmental suits when you fly it...

Nah, I would just let my crew burst into flames every 5 seconds I mean environmental suits are way to expensive for the whole crew.

One of my favorite things about the environment suits is how when I'm on Nukara and I trigger my Bajoran thingamagig that makes quantum duplicates, they're in suits too.

Although I hate that theirs are prettier than mine.

I'm loving the TNG 25th Anniversary promo. My (fed) klingon boffs can finally wear sashes and have a decent hairstyle!

I doubt Tholians use chairs, beds, toilettes or replicators, like humans do.
Still one helluva lot of work. So, why bother doing that when there are so many ships for humanoid use around?

Cool factor. Espionage. Cool factor. Testing. Did I mention it's cool?

I don't think Starfleet and KDF care about cool.
And espionage? Just use a Tholian dissenter or double agent. Much cheaper.

If you've played this game, you've DONE missions where the espionage role required looking like an enemy ship.

Yes, and since those enemy ships were built for humanoids it was never that much of a hassle.

Well I lucked out on TNG related stuff today. I got the season 1 uniform and Klingon sash, and after trying one of the new Tholian lock boxes just for a lark and got a subspace jump console which means I can do the Picard maneuver.

Now if only they would release the TNG season miniskirt uniform and the Ambassador-class, then Kenny would be all set up.

Went and got the TNG season 1 uniform as soon as I heard about it. Wish the sash could be done in different colors. Only the emblem can use different colors. Hope this means they'll release Worf's season 2-7 Sash to us Starfleet characters at some point.

I picked up the TNG season 1 uniform bits for all five of my Toons last nice. It's a really great uniform.

I also picked up the TNG season 1 uniform on all my toons. I decided to open the first Tholian lock box that I got and it contained a purple Tholian DOFF. The second one I opened contained a 20% Fleet Credit increase for up to 5000 Fleet Credits. Not too shabby on the first 2 boxes I opened.
