Counterpoint: [AU] [SF]

But yeah - I think added gametext on a HQ (and missions in general) was always a bad idea.

Define what "part-species" means (basically a way to note personnel like Spock as "part-Human" and "part-Vulcan", and so on) and make Vulcan as an HQ for Vulcans and part-Vulcans. (Inspired, of course, by 1E's Kolinahr.)

I think it all comes down to what cool, affiliation specific mechanic can we come up with and then the question will answer itself.
This.

I can come up with some possibilities for the affiliations in the poll. But we shouldn't just be ticking the "got a new HQ" box. The mechanics have to come first.
