So I am curious how they will end up aligned with the Klingons.
Very true, though I think the point of the Syndicate is that they're very decentralized, and can run as a pirate organization through anyone's space relatively below the radar. Helps them conduct black market trade and the like without getting caught easily. So they probably gave up using Orion as the homeworld a long time ago, probably when it was inducted into the Federation sometime after Kirk, but before Picard.
