And Cryptic should have used the T'Pau type not the D'kry (but I know at least one person on these forums who did not want that because did not like the band with the same name)

The Klingons and their allies are not a unified military in the ses Starfleet is and have only worked together for a few years.

So ships from non-Starfleet organizations in use by Starfleet will of course be rare just because Starfleet had a quarter of a millenium to use the technology of its member races to build its own ships.
I agree with this assement. In addition, when groups come together, their assest are often pooled until the older designs are phased out. Standardisation takes time, especially when thsoe groups have dramatically divergent priorities and motivations.
