The voice work varies by class and gender, not by species.

The only work necessary is the design of the skins for the models. A few Cathar are in the game already, but there aren't enough to probably cover all of the standard customization options people will expect. The skeletons are the same for all species, and the animations are tied to the class alone, so no new work there.

Personally, I have no interest in playing one, but I do find it remarkable that with the number of people who have asked for them, and the apparent simplicity of just recoloring some skins (which they are so good at) that it would take so long to implement something initially claimed to be in the works a year ago.

I've been holding off on playing the trooper class because I am waiting for the Cathar to come out.

Separate voiceover and storyline is made just for classes, not for races.

Also, who cares about those 'roided up tigers anyways. I wanna play as Ortolan or Ugnaught.

There was a recent Dev post about the challenges in implementing a new species into SWTOR. It takes a lot more than just setting a flag as a species. All the emotes, moods, etc have to be articulated for them. The voice over wasn't mentioned, but I suspect that it would need to be done as well.

All that said, and the struggles and complexities of the work involved highlighted, I would still appreciate at least a vague timeline ("This will come out later in 2013" or "This is prioritized after RotHC and related bug fixes" or "This only going to be available to legacy 50 players") or recognition that it is still coming down the pike.

This article specifically says the Cathar are coming, and soon. No date given, but it was in an interview regarding 2.0 and the expansion and it suggests it will be via the Cartel Market, but that wasn't explicit.

The Republic and Empire, being responsible galactic powers, had them all spayed and neutered.
