Ok, so I've been playing around with the new Klingon ships on Tribble. They're AWESOME! Makes me actually WANT to make a KDF character...
Anyway, the one ship I kept coming back to was the Orion flight deck cruiser. It has one hanger and no other specials, but it makes up for that with firepower and a decent BO layout.
My proposal is: Why not have the Jupiter Class Dreadnought as a flight deck carrier? It's not a true carrier, so the klingons would be happy (plus it would only be one fed "carrier" versus multiple klingon ships that now serve as carrier roles).
Flying the Orion ship allowed me to find a whole new play style that has never been available to the Federation players. So why not? The flight deck carrier is a good half and half for both sides, the Feds get some carrierish play, while the KDF can retain the true carrier and monopoly on the flight deck cruisers. Everyone wins!
