I guess FFG can't forget the Jawa's... Many requests for them here.

After looking over some resources (Unofficial Menagerie, Wookieepedia, etc.) I came up with a list of likely species that I would hope FFG can follow through with in various supplement/sourcebooks:

 

ARCONA

BARABEL

BITH

CEREAN

CHADRA-FAN

DEFEL

DEVARONIAN

GAMORREAN

GUNGAN

JAWA

KUBAZ

NAUTOLAN

NEIMOIDIAN

NIKTO

ORTOLAN

QUARREN

SELKATH

TOGRUTA

UBESE

ZABRAK

 

I think this list will cover some classic trilogy races that people would be interested in running as well as some prequel/EU races that have become popular.  I'd at least like to see some materials regarding new races even if they are not meant for player races just to have certain traits and abilities acknowledged.  I can say that I'm not happy with the duplication of races that Age of Rebellion is pushing, but understand that it allows for newbies who start with the second Core book and not Edge of the Empire and its supplements to build from.

I forgot to mention the Herglic, Whiphids, and Yuzzem. IIRC, the Whiphids got some screen time in Clne Wars, so maybe they'll pop up sooner.

I imagine this concept of a Gamorrean Enforcer that is so anti social he usually lingers near the engine room of his ship listenng to Gamorean Opera's and sleeping on the floor so he doesn't have to socialize with the party too much but has their back no matter what.

I rather play my Gamorean politico.

 

Or even better, Entertainer (Either Opera or twilek style dance)

And I just flashed back to Minnesota Fatts, the Gamorrean Disco Dancing Sensation (courtesy of some demented mind over at the old WotC Saga Edition forums) :D

Although it could be better suited in a Technician book, I would also like to see Arkanian and Arkanian offshoots. Ah well, USM will have me covered if that dream doesn't come true.

Zeltrons are a mary sue race? How so? I always saw them more in the tradition of the 'exotic green skin girl' of early sci-fi.

Or the red men from Edgar Rice Burroughs' barsoom series.
You're going to find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point if EU.

Strangely, the race I don't like because I perceive it as 'Mary Sue' would be the Falleen. They're super-sexy and so badass it hurts... Yuck.

Nagai, Ubese, Togruta, Sith, Miraluka, Noghri, Dathomirian, Falleen, Barabel, Defel, Cathar.

Obviously a wishlist with no regard for timeline.

, Togruta, Sith, Miraluka,

 

I think it's fair to say these three and kel-dor will likely be held back until force and destiny. Sith are "extinct" as a species though aren't they? even the "purebloods" in swotor weren't real Sith.

I'm a stickler for sticking to races who stuck out in the original trilogy:

 

Arconian

Bith

Chandra-Fan

Devaronian

Gammorian

Gran

Jawa

Nikto

 

If you want to go outside of that I think Dugs fit nicely in EotE.

 

I wouldn't expect to see anything from old, Old Republic (KotOR, not prequel), until Force and Destiny.  And I wouldn't expect to see any races introduced that weren't commonly known throughout the galaxy at the time of the original trilogy until a few books into Age of Rebellion (Ewoks, Noghri).

I agree with HappyDaze. Falleen are much more "Mary Sue" than Zeltrons. Falleen not only have the attraction thing like Zeltrons (even though I have yet to see a Falleen that looks at all attractive), but they are also all badass too.

 

Both Species fit EotE pretty well though. (And let's face it, just about EVERYTHING in most of the later EU novels was "Mary Sue")

 

Oh, and I forgot to add the Lepi to my most wanted species, so I can get my green rabbit Jaxxon on.

Since they're cannon, Lurmen would make a really interesting colonist species. I would be happy with stats for them.

We did get the Chiss, and they were not commonly known around the galaxy.
