Caitians are not lions. Here's what we know about Caitian females from canon sources:

Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)

Next stupid question, although I actually feel better about asking this one.

I recently started a second character. Can I use/transfer property, currency, etc. between characters, or is it all completely separate?
And if so, how?

You can transfer (non-bound) items between characters by mailing them to yourself, or (if you are a Gold subscriber? Not sure on this one) when you go to the bank, there's an option to enter the Account Bank, where you can deposit items or energy credits. As for dilithium, there's no real easy way of transferring it between characters.

If you're a monthly subscriber or lifetime subscriber, you get an "Account Bank" with 20 bank slots that are shared across all characters.

If you're a silver (free-to-play) subscriber, then you'll have to pay for the shared bank slots from the C-Store.

As a crutch, you can always fall back to the old method of sending a mail containing items to your characters.

^I use mine as a silver as well. I think former subscribers who went f2p got the account bank slots also.

That would explain it.

Caitians are not lions.
I'm well aware of that, as well as the fact they not even remotely REAL. The point was about explaining why a particular and specific Earth feline has a mane where ALL others do not. A female Caitian having a mane makes little sense in this regard based on REALITY. Of course, if you have a theoretical purpose to explain why a female felinoid would need a mane, I'd be happy to read it.

Because every single time we've ever seen a female Caitian in a Star Trek TV series or movie, she had one.

Fyi, Cryptic is going to add the ability to downgrade a higher grade duty officer into 3 random lower grade duty officers. For example, you will be able to downgrade a very rare purple duty officer into 3 rare blue duty officers, or a rare blue duty officer into 3 uncommon green duty officers.

A single very rare purple duty officer can be converted into 27 common white duty officers. Once the patch goes live, chances are the price of all green, blue and purple duty officers will go up as people grab cheap higher ranked doffs. In other words, it is now time to stock up on cheap green/blue/purple duty officers in the exchange while their prices are still low.

Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)

Cryptic has revealed some first details on the design process of the upcoming Sovereign Refit.
I have waited for this, mostly for the stats and the hope of a Nemesis skin.
The Regent they have designed is in line with all the other 2409 ships, but kinda meh as an evolution of the Sovereign Class ship we all know and love.
Chances are we can kitbash it into something that looks more advanced then the FC look but not as fugly as the pure Regent Class.
If a kitbash can look as cool as what I did with the Akira/Thunderchild hybrid I will be very happy:

I went straight Akira with mine. Veteran texture and AEGIS suite, it looks snazzy. I'm gonna stick with it for a while.

Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)

I tried the Veteran texture. Decided I don't like it.
It doesn't look realistic as metal hull plating I think, and the blue glowing neon lines don't help.
The finer the detail the better.
Personally I would love to fly an Excelsior or Sovereign with the Fleet Refit skin... but I guess, that is not gonna happen any time soon since both are not available at any tier and i don't think the tier they would be placed at are reachable in any reasonable amount of time anyway....

Tier 3 by the end of the year, maybe...

That's not an explanation, it's an observation. And as far as I recall, Caitian Females have only been shown in the animated series. Trying to link that cat thing from STV to TAS? Doesn't look like M'Ress has three bewbz in your pic, never mind the anatomy of the legs.

In either case, male Caitians also have "hair" options in STO. It's never been shown, i.e. the would-be Caitians in STIV have no "extra" hair.

So what's with the manes for any Caitian? Whether it's TAS or STO, it basically makes no sense.
