Yes, it is a bummer, but it sort of makes sense.
The klingon faction, by its nature, attracts fewer customers than the Fed Faction -- so Feds are going to get the lion's share of attention.
Add to this point, that they are focused on launching the game, and you can sort of see why the Klingons are not a huge focus right now.
I am not saying Cryptic does not care, but rather that they are just busy elsewhere. Kestrel has said she is working on KDF story content, so that should be good news for some. I would imagine there will be more stuff and participation once they clear launch and take care of any major Fed issues.
