Why are we the Klingon Defense Force still?
 
Why arent we something like the Imperial Klingon Navy or something?

Klingon Deep Space Fleet with ships called IKV (Imperial Klingon Vessel).

Defense is for Fedrats. Feds would have a Secretary of Defense, Klingons would have a Minister of WAR.

You can sell "defence fleet" better from a PR standpoint.

We dont need no stinking PR...we are Klingons. Are we defending or are we expanding? Is there really someone out there saying we'd be better recieved if we didnt come across too strong?

Because apparently it's canon?

I thought that perhaps the "Defense" concept came about during the Klingon-Federation Alliance...I'll have to check Memory Alpha

To lilly livered Fedsheep maybe. A species of warriors would think it silly. The Klingon conquest of the Gorns wasn't a defensive operation conducted by a defense force. A Klingon Empire run on the backs of hundreds of subjugated planets doesn't have a "defense" force. KDF must be an intentional Federation misinterpretation of the name for the Klingon military in order to "sell" the alliance.

I don't know Klingon, but I would suspect the Klingon word for "defend" is either the same or closely related to "stabbimate with extreme prejudice".

Besides, a strong offense is the best defense, or something.

We only own three blocks in the game and share a few blocks with the Feds.
