Zeltron would be cool, but honestly they don't need to be a separate species selection, just add additional 'alien' skin colors to the humans. I'm not sure why they didn't do that from the beginning.

They can't even get one race in, and people are asking for two?

then maybe a current gen character customization system after that...

then i guess I would like to see the voss become a neutral race to play. dunno after that. republic will need a unique race or 2 if Bioware ever gets their **** together and fixes the legacy crap.
But...there's been Chiss Jedi in the EU way before TOR.

i'd like to see falleen and zeltrons. both are beautiful and seriously awesome species. we know that they're both in the galaxy in this time period, as we have a falleen become a darth, and we have zeltron devices for courting. also, they're human enough to not break the "humans with different skin" thing they like so much.

That's all assuming we ever get a non-basic race, which is a giant if right now.
No, not assumption:

WB = Will Beckman, Voice Director
DH = Darth Hater

DH: We have been told that players have the option of making their characters a non-human species. Will all players be voiced in galactic basic, be it English, French, or German, or will some be able to speak in an alien language, similar to Jory in the Bounty Hunter demo?

WB: The players will have the option of creating non-human player characters. However all of the player characters will speak basic as much of the entertainment in the conversations comes from the player character responses.

Reluctantly, I have to agree. It's nice to have for flavor every now and then, but when I talk to too many alien language NPCs in a short time period, I have to spacebar through it. Maybe if they made it as complex and natural as an actual language it wouldn't be as bad, but you start to realize that you're hearing a lot of the same words over and over. And don't get me started on talking to Bowdaar. I actually freaked out some of the people in my house with that.

I agree with this. I'd counter with the fact that in many EU sources almost any race can learn galactic basic. Not every member of a species mind you, but the point of the game is you're playing a unique individual destined to do great things. It is plausible for many races that have been in the top running on almost all polls here on the forums to speak basic. Probably the bigger problem is the race size/shape rather than a can they talk like everyone else issue.
