This is all interesting stuff, jnohd.

I am all for expanding the Fek'Ihri storyline. There are quite a few unanswered questions, like where they actually came from. Perhaps this was left intentionally ambiguous, not sure.

But to be honest, as far as I can see, the KDF storyline is littered with underdeveloped enemies--casualties of half-completed storylines, etc. I would be more interested in a focused set of enemies (e.g., Fed, Fek'Ihri, and Iconian), rather than the swarm of foes we now face, which is actually quite unrealistic.
