Its even more bizarre when you consider the Empire is using conquered peoples to command and crew ships. How they can justify Orion and Gorn captains at all is beyond me, the first are untrustworthy criminals the others are a conquered people... The number of ships disappearing or going rogue must be staggering.

I get the reasons WHY Cryptic did it, but from a lore point of view its nonsense. So much of the lore or story that affects the KDF sets them up like a house of cards, just a moment away from collapsing.

And now they're playing nice with Romulans, them wanting to change doesn't really make them any more likeable to the Empire since they are clearly turning into a people more in tune with the Federation.

If anything this was a wasted opportunity to highlight the Fed/Emp space war. Imagine what could be done if they made it revolve around the KDF attacking the fragile new colonies while Starfleet defended them. It doesn't even have to be PvP based. Throw in some Tal Shiar/Iconian hijinks and there you go.
