I imagine they have a metric that would measure how many of the "Temporal Science Vessels" are opened on a particular faction.

That is to say, if you have a (faction neutral) 'Temporal Science Vessel' and open it on a KDF character it will unlock as a Korrath.

Alternatively, if you spend 800 lobi and purchase a Krenn they should be able to track this as well.

On top of that, simply purchasing a key from while on a KDF character is also something they should be able to track and measure.
