My Klingon brothers, we are all well aware of the treachery of the J'mpok and his allies, and it is time the we restore true honor to the Empire, we must overthrow J'mpok!

Yeah..anyhoo, i thought of this while reading the Federation/Klingon Peace treaty idea that was thrown out a while ago. Through out every series of Star Trek, there has always been unstable government, and I feel that STO doesnt take advantage of the political factors of their own universe. Maybe that peace treaty isnt such a bad idea, if the Klingons split up maybe between factions supporting J'mpok and a challenging house (maybe players can choose sides?) they could introduce a more concentrated Romulan or Dominion threat or something. It would really shake things up on the Klingon side, and make the whole story line a whole lot more interesting. Just my two bits, of course this would happen in like season 9 or 10, but just throwing it out there. Thanks!

Could even lay the frame work for the Empire eventually joining the Federation. If I'm not mistaken, it does in the 26th century, doesn't it? Maybe Worf vs J'mpok for the fate of the Klingon people.

It happened in an alternate timeline where Enterprise did not destroy the spheres in the Delphic Expanse and the Expanse nearly encompassed the entire quadrant.
In what way does it make any sense to say "it happens" when it happened in an alternate timeline?

I would love to see J'mpok overthrown and buried face down in a field somewhere.

He lacks honor and taints the honor of our Empire.

However, I do NOT want to see our Empire shackled to the Federation as if there is one thing my working along side them has taught me ... they will try to convert our people to their way of thinking, stepping over the beliefs that are the foundations of our people.

No, the Klingon Empire and its allies have no place as part of their ... Federation of Planets.

I must agree with P-A-T-H-F-I-N-D-E-R.

We are Klingons. We have our pride and traditions, our very belief is shaped by our concept of honor and it is our identity. Many are those who throughout time has tried to conquer the Empire, from the ancient enemy H'urq to the Fek'lhr, even the mighty Borg has failed to assimilate us. And then should we let all the blood that has been spilled to preserve the Empire mean nothing? Shall we then consider giving up our heritage only to be assimilated by the soft touch and heart of the Federation?

I have a great respect for the Federation and if they were not enemies of the Empire I would welcome them in my home. But welcommng them in my home is far different than giving them the Empire. While they stand by their values and have integrity in their own fashion, they would seek to change us. For us to be like them, we would have to abandon our traditions, our right to challenge a weak captain. Our rights to demand honor be settled with a bat'leth. Our entire way of life would be at risk. To join them would be to risk assimilation just as surely as if we allowed the Borg to come to Qo'nos.

It is said to win a battle at the cost of an Empire is no victory, and to loose a battle to save an Empire is no defeat. I would rather loose the war with the Federation than join it, if loosing this war allows the Empire to exist. J'mpok might already have set us upon that path, and though I do not have any fondness for the Chancelor, he is the Chancelor. For now.

Totally support this. Always felt the Klingon side to be lacking without Martok - he was legendary. It's a shame he can't be brought back somehow. I'm tempted to go to Quadra Sigma, hijack the temporal portal and fetch him back!

It would be good canon Klingon wise to have some form of system whereby the player could pledge alligance to a specific House - could also tie in with territory-control and PVP related aspects of the game as an extension. But yeah - we Klingons definately need some political intrigue and back-stabbing just to make it feel more...homely.
