Note: When you gain level 50 with any race, you unlock the race. It then can be playable on either faction and can now be any class within the game.

Humans have always been unlocked for all classes; reaching level 50 as a human grants a sizeable +100 Presence stat bonus. Cyborgs have different cybernetic options depending on class; reaching level 50 as a cyborg unlocks all customizations. Zabrak by default have a skintone dependent on faction (human-standard colors for Republic faction; red for the Imperial faction). Unlocking them (eg levelling to level 50) allows the opposite skintones to be used, such as "pale" Imperial Zabraks or red Republic Zabraks to be played.
