The only thing truly advantageous thing the klingons have is the universal BOs on the birds of prey, however this is countered by the fact that birds are squishier and have weapon arcs mostly limited to the fore. It would be nice if feds could have ships with universal slots to add some variety, but then again they have plenty of variety with 3 different escort layouts, 5 different cruiser layouts, and 4 different science layouts. Klingons have 3 different cruisers, 3 different escorts, 2 carriers and a sci support ship. Feds: 12 Klings: 9

As you can see our birds are more flexible so we could run all those extra vessel combos you have, but Feds would still hold distinct hull advantages.
