So the KDF can still go around killing the Star Empire, the old Romulan state.

Also, apart from Obisek's already mentioned fondness for Thalarons, D'Tan is a Federation sympathiser.
Fighting Hirogens and Tholians and Tal'shiar as support may prevent this new State from aiding the Feds against the KDF.

Also, this may help smoothing out the KDF-Federation war into something more like the Cold War, with both factions already engaged in the Omega force.

There are the Iconians around, and House Duras is the Rising Star of the Klingon Empire. The Duras seem to want to concentrate on the most dangerous and powerful enemy.
Would it not be more honourable-glorious to fight these Iconians and defeat such a mighty foe?
Even if it takes Federation and Romulan refugee aid, this would be a feat of epic might. Even worth allying with the unreliable and sassy Federation, and this Romulan Pocket state.

So the KDF can have reasons to do this, to at least somehow explain the copypaste content.

And Klingons are not Space Orks.
Da orkzez got more Dakka, bikez and they are dead stompy!
Dem orkz care not for dis "honor", its a posh humie fing. Kill em, eat em!
Waaaaaaaaaagh!!!!! Stomp da ooniverze flat!
We're supposed to be at war with the Federation.

We should be conquering this new colony so that the Federation doesn't gain another puppet state to do its bidding. That's what the Klingon Empire would do, if it were at odds with the Federation. At the very least, we should be establishing strongholds and another Ganalda-like base of operations to face this new threat. Instead, Cryptic has us, Klingons, glad-handling green-blooded Romulans and their former slaves, Remans, in the name of 'peace and cooperation'. The whole lovey-dovey thing makes me sick.
