I think the overall telling statement was when he was asked if he played KDF and he replied, "Only occasionally when I want to test some new content. Like most of our players, I prefer to play my Federation character.." This speaks volumes to me of the underlying attitude and assumptions by management.

Sigh. I'm no doomsayer or conspiracy believer in terms of Cryptic and I certainly don't believe they hate KDF players. I know some of the individual Devs have really gone out of their way to try and get things into the game for us. However after watching events unfold over time since launch and then seeing this interview... it is obvious that at a management level Cryptic's prevailing attitude of apathy towards the KDF simply has not changed, we'll always be an afterthought at best. I would love to be proven wrong in the future, but I gave up holding my breath for it long ago.

"History of the KDF & Cryptic"
Just a note ... The written questions are what he supplied to us before the interview took place and are well worth reading.

The actual interview went candid (thanks for that, DStahl) with him doing an excellent job giving us a little deeper thoughts and views.

Worth reading the written Q & A and definitely worth listening to. ... but suggest both.
