I disagree that the KDF would not build Science vessels. I think they would build them but like the specialized vessel it would be, it would also be a rare vessel in service.
However there is a novel series about a Klingon battlecruiser called the IKS Gorkon (that is part of STO's background, the Gorkon is mentioned in "The Path to 2409") that depicts how Klingons conduct exploration.
And I can tell you they do more than find a world and order a real science ship to do the actual exploration.
The ships they send out do both, because they can do both.
It annoys the heck out of their tactial officers since they have nothing to do most of the time, but they spend weeks scanning and investigating worlds and stars.
And when they are done investigating they don't call for a real science team to do the actual work.
If they found a world worthy to plant their flag on, either they call for a colonization team or for a fleet to conquer it when there is a population there to exploit.
Exactly true, and also the reason why it sucks when the Devs write us as acting like the feds in how we do things.
He who laughs last thinks slowest.
