WOW wasn't the first, nor will it be the last to have more than one fully functioning and mutually hostile factions.
Agreed. With the TV show, they generally stuck with the Federation and a majority human/human-looking cast, in order to make the characters more 'relate-able'. That's far from necessary in a game setting.

Practically all Star Trek games have featured multiple playable races/factions, usually with all of them being treated equally in terms of how fleshed out they were. STO is an unfortunate break from that pattern, with the clear sucking up to Federation fanboys who have lots of money.
