# 1 Klingon/Joined Trill
04-24-2010, 06:03 PM
Why is the Joined Trill becoming a playable Klingon faction with the upcoming S1.1 Update? Is this addition canon-related or is it because of the Digital Deluxe STO versions? If it's for the Digital Deluxe and not canon-related, wouldn't it be more appropriate to add a different canon-appropriate Klingon faction?

In DS9, there was an episode focusing on the Klingons and Jadzia Dax. In short, Jadzia was going to be working with Curzon's old friends, Dahar Masters Kor, Koloth, and Kang, whom he knew from a long time ago.

It's been implied in that episode that Curzon Dax had seen lengthy times with them, and they had nothing but the utmost respect for him. Dax was thoroughly familiar with the Klingon mindset, language, traditions, and weapons.

This was all before her marriage to Worf.

That's what I'm thinking as to how the KDF can get Joined Trills.

Cryptic basically added Joined Trill, because Klingon players were complaining about Joined Trills being Federation-only (Liberated Borg was like that too until it was revealed Klingons had Liberated Borg too).

But if they are doing it, apparently someone at Paramount gave the green light.



Though I personally don't like it, because its all based on Dax, who had associations with the Klingons as the Federation Ambassador, but really thats it. Trill is a Federation planet. Then again Orion is a member of the Federation, and they get Orion players as well.

So to be fair, Klingon players can have Joined Trill, if we get Orion slave girls too!

I don't really like that idea myself. After all, Jadzia stayed with the Feds when the Klingon Empire broke up the alliance, and didn't suddenly serve on a Klingon ship to fight Cardassia. I would have liked an own, KDF-exclusive species.

But - damage done, so... Quark was married to Grilka for a day or two, can we please have Ferengi in the KDF? Its canon.

I voutch for that!!! And would do a Ferengie KDF ad hoc!!!

First, I can sell the positions of he feddies in PvP to the KdF.
Then, i can trash em to pieces.
And afterwards, can sell em there junk back to repair there ships!!

War is good for Profit!
Peace is good for Profit!

And if you can't make either, you can make MORE profit :p

That was a beautiful rage. It has some truth in it, too. Like I said, I would like a Klingon Dahar Master as exclusive KDF counterpart to the Fed Joined Trill. Also because there are more Borg and Klingon captains in Starfleet than anything else. Rare, umm, that's something different. Joined Trill and Human are close from what I see (randomized aliens not counted). It would actually be refreshing to see more Klingons on KDF side, but out of 50 KDF players, 12 have a Klingon, 30 have a female Orion, 5 have a Gorn and the rest is random aliens, mostly with ridicolous looks. That's not the KDF I remember. But its also not the Starfleet I remember...

Seven of Nine was NOT a member of Starfleet. She was a CREWMEMBER of Voyager, but without a rank. That makes Locutus the only 'liberated Borg' who serves on a Starfleet vessel. As Jean-Luc Picard, not as Loctutus or 5 of 17. I wish people would remember that before naming their character 346 of 7995.

And to answer the question (?) - yes, people have stated that ALL Klingons hate ALL Ferengi. Of course it has no base in canon, as Grilka still met with Quark after their divorce, and Martok and Nog getting along. Play as a Ferengi. Feel the love, joy and happiness of not playing a 'pretty, sexy' species. Even Cryptic names topics about gold spammers 'Ferengi Smugglers'. There you have 'specisim'. If I could defect to the KDF - or anywhere else - I would much prefer that and get away from the Feds.

So, now I have to go check my Eelwasser stocks, rant over.

We have copy paste PvE mission content but it's wash and repeat. If we want to do anything cool we have to work with the feds. there is no open area PvP. Cloak is a joke closer than 8k at higher levels thanks to carebear whinners. As for joined trill, it was used a a promo item, wrongly in my opinon. people paid money for it and should either be reimbursed or be given the item. For me its crap idea and I dont want one. Just like Klingons running around with tribbles..its just wrong. But at least you can tell the Klingons from the wannabes. So **** of and shut up about how Klingons were whinning. The next time you go into a PvP match, if you actually have the balls, why dont you count the odds of how many feds vs how many klingons, most of the good players have left because its a crap game.
Excuse me, but aren't you complaining?

I'm sorry you feel that way, but it's the Truth that Klingon players have complained as much as Federation players regarding content. For instance, the recent addition of PvE content, when Cryptic wanted Klingons exclusively be PvP-only. And the complaint over Federation Science Ships.

FYI, the Carrier wasn't nerfed, it just had an exploit with the hangers fixed. The Science consoles were part of the Science Nerfing.

And Borg Hunt is Open PvP.


Joined Trill don't really belong in the Klingon Empire. There needs to be a line drawn. When the Romulans are added, they would want the same quality as well. Sure they can have Liberated Borg (since obviously we ran into assimilated Romulans), but they would also want Joined Trill as well.
