The unique 'eye candy' factors the Klingons have do nothing to improve the KDF gameplay. Selling them and earmarking the proceeds to shift development time over to the KDF just might. I'm not asking for cloaks or Klingon ships in Starfleet, never have, and never will*, though I have repeatedly suggested that there should be more KDF ship options including the ships of their satellite states. Individual people of a species (and their fashion choices**), on the other hand, are absolutely
logical to completely restrict to one side and I think it sends a somewhat non-Trek message to do so.
*I have, in fact, referred to Starfleet getting cloaks as 'fail'.
**For off-duty wear, I really don't think there should be any species limitation anyway.
As far as it goes for canon, there are some things that should just be left alone. Keep what we have on our side and keep what you have on your side. If you want to make a rogue, then use the alien tab and pick the race's traits you want. Im not saying not to allow all species into the federation, but just to limit some completely...you know...races that will leave people scratching their heads asking what that was about. Agree or not, I don't care..I am entitled to my opinion.
