Doesn't give me much hope for Neverwinter being made by the same dev team.

Copy and paste 3rd anniversary missions, I mean why would a KDF want to help a federation member to kill more KDF people ?

As well as releasing more ships on the store for the feds and none for the KDF.

I certainly glad I am not paying a subscription for this game as its a shambles with the bridge officer bug and the lack of thought for other factions other than the federation.

Will play through the missions and episodes though just to finish the story. After that there wont be much point in sticking around.
While you won't get any argument from me that the KDF content isn't at the same level as Federation, I would like to point out a few things.

1) Neverwinter isn't made by the same dev team. They have their own dev team, which is separate from the CO dev team, which is separate from the STO dev team. They all work at the same company, but the each have their own teams.

2) The anniversary event is subtly different in a few ways for Klingons, as for why you want to help, after the timeline changes, your character only remembers that life, and has a nagging feeling that things aren't as they should. They're just trying to get things back to the way they were. I'm not sure what you mean by helping a Federation member kill KDF, since you're trying to help send the Enterprise C back in time to protect the Klingons from a Romulan attack, but even if that wasn't the case, it would need to be done to restore the timeline proper.

3) Fed get more ship because there are more Fed players and so it's more profitable. Cryptic devs have stated that the Bortasque ships for KDF actually lost them money, in terms of the time and salaries they spent to make it versus what it earned them. It's a vicious cycle.
