At best I think all we can hope for is remastered versions of some of the early Fed missions that are tweaked to be Klingon and Romulan neutral. We might get a fancier tutorial mission for the KDF, but I'm not expecting much in the way of unique content.
The only thing that we have confirmed at this point is that they are
giving the KDF the ability to be playable from the start. Aside from that it appears they are ready to stick a fork in the faction as they are done with it.
Sadly since game development is a zero sum game this means the majority of development resources for the KDF will be drying up. The KDF will probably be left with the scraps from lock boxes, rep system stuff, and fleet ship variants... well that and whatever new bugs pop up when they implement this massive update.
Its going to be down to metrics in the medium to long run, which means spreading the news to the old players and new about these changes. If the numbers improve enough then Cryptic will invest the time.
