I'm also not amused at the surprising number of Klingons in the Federation. It's like there's a Worf around every corner. Their random NPC generator should probably be weighted to produce more traditional Federation races for the Feds (humans 80%, Vulcans 10%, basically-humans 8%, really messed up looking weirdos and Worf 2%) and the KDF should be weighted towards being Klingon, with the other official races being well represented and "aliens" being a small minority.

Not a big deal, but it would make the game look more like Star Trek and less like Champions Online -- basically just full of weird random looking humanoids.
Klingons were up until recently allied and had officers serving in the federation. It's not that much of a stretch.

Look at it this way - the players in the game are supposed to represent exceptional captains - so maybe there's a correlation there. People want to have an interesting story, at least I hope that is why.
