SO very few!?! They had the Admiral in charge of the whole KDF fleet in the form of Chang and his staff that conspired with Star Fleet personel to assasinate the UFP President and High Chancellor. They had the resources to get assassins into Khitomer undetected, take a prototype Bird of Prey out of the KDF shipyards and use it and even where organized enough to have two regular SF personel act as assassins on the High Chancellors ship under the nose of Kirk on the SF flagship.
These were not the actions of a small ill-planned movement or cultish group of diletantes intent on complaint without action. These people where organized and well trained.

As I wrote, if you believe J'mpok's decision to be wrong, challenge him for a duel.


(Wouldn't that be a cool feature in the game? The option to challenge the Chancellor for a melee fight that you cannot possibly win because he is just so awesome?)
Yes, it would be cool. The reasoning for the actions of the Empire seem like J'mpok has drunk the cool-aid of fed principles and believes that since the Empire has absorbed allies like the Gorn and Orion we must act like the federation example and become humanitarians instead of conquerers.

But mainly I just lament the poor inclusion of KDF gameplay into what is primarily a fed designed addition to the game and hope that Season 8 actually holds more for us and less mimicry of the federation because it makes the job easier.
