When I saw that bit that says "Melani D'ian, leader of the Orion Syndicate, signs an alliance with J'mpok and the Klingon Empire. As a gift she sends 1,500 women to be servants to the Klingon Great Houses", my first thought was "riiight... so the Orions are now running Qo'nos?!" OK, so everyone's presumably wise to the Orion slave girls by this time, but all the same... and faced with a scantily clad girl, is your average Klingon going to waste time trying to work out what her agenda is? :-)

From the Federation side, I seem to run into more Orion enemies than Klingon ones, if anything. So giving the Orions a bit more airtime on the KDF side would make sense, surely? They've potentially got at least as good a premise as the Klingons. I'm as puzzled as Lordgyor about exactly how an entire nation of pirates would work, but it would be fun to find out.
