The Defense Forces definitely would not build science ships, but keep in mind that the KDF is not Starfleet and that the KDF is responsible for the military objectives of the Empire only.
Everything else from Engineering advances to Scientific developments would be handled more on a per House basis given that the Society is a modified feudal system. That is to say that Science ships would be commissioned by Houses or Organizations within the Empire that were pursuing specified goals.
I believe that the only vessels that would be built by the KDF that would be considered to have any 'Science' qualifications would be those for exploring beyond the Empire's borders for the purposes of expanding the Empire.
Support a KDF equivalent to the Vesta
