Care to share what you think is pretty annoying to run as a KDF capn or ones that dont make any sense?

Here's mine:
1. In Night of the Comet: Making Cassidy a nerve tonic . WHAT? IM A WARRIOR. I SMASH, NOT BARTEND!! Oh for the record, I hate this one as Fed cap as well :p
2. New-world building with the Romulans
3. Second wave: My Klingon tac capn having to listen to a Gorn about Klingon Honor
4. Boldly they Rode (I think): My BOff getting all excited that the Enterprise showed up! The scumbag..
We still live!!!!! Hahahahahahahahaa! We live and we will conquer!!!!! Hahahahahaaha!

-Roach, when asked about Klingon extinction!

Well in all fairness, both the FE's and the Reputation system were build to be shared between us and the Feds, so of course we're suddenly doing things that don't make any sense... I'm not saying I like it, but that's how it worked out.

The missions that were pure KDF though, are more in-line with a warrior society
Was named Trek17, but still an author.

Been playing STO since Open Beta, and have never regarded anything as worse than 'meh'. I have nothing against the game/devs, nor any particular wish to talk bad about either, or praise most decisions. Still, it's better to be positive than cynical.

The missions in the "Undine Advance" storyline.

ALL of them.

while it's definitely a "Solution" to the plot from a FED perspective, from a KDF perspective, it's utter rubbish-we lost more because of the Undine infiltrations than we would EVER be willing to consider forgiving.

Likewise, the blog-post justification for KDF participation in "New Romulus" is, put nicely, insufficient, to the point of raising questions about the loyalty of Ja'rod to the Klingon Empire, and if not his loyalty, then his sanity.

New Romulus I can kinda see actually. I think back to The Trouble with Tribbles and think "they'd be surly as hell the whole way, but they'd do it just to ensure a presence".

The others are spot on and hilarious though. My Fed toon is an Andorian, and so wouldn't likely have any more truck with that nerve tonic faffery than my Klingon.

Hell, even as a human, I'd probably be all "Are you effing kidding me? We're in the middle a crisis! Here, here's a shot of tequila. I don't care if it burns both ways: drink it, straighten up, and get your ass in gear!"

My Orion (semi-retired slaver) captain was looking at Nerve Tonic Girl and thinking "Are the air-scrubbers turned up to overdrive? Because my pheromones should certainly be motivating this human more than I'm seeing!"

YES!! The poor KDF factional feel is missing in many cross-faction missions. They don;t have to change the missions per5se just make the put a "KDF-esque" option so the mood is not ruined by " I did a fed thing again" sort of options.

makes me feel dirty in a unfun dirty way.

Yeah had that with my Orion (there again there's that fed Captain you have ot beat up in one of the KDF missions).
Equally my 8Ft Gorn was thinking "I have a bite option and all her kit is laid out on the table next to her".

I always think that I'm not mixing a Nerve tonic, but a nerve toxin.

Could be worse, at least we dont actually 'have' to rescue the Defari and can just execute them all instead.

Ill make this easy by saying the ones they did correctly rather than incorrectly.

The missions where you raid Federation convoys is done correctly.

All else is a failure.

That said I didn't mind the original set of KDF missions (the ones with the bat'leth tournement) however I hated the fact that you ended up with Kahless' sword. Kinda made it less of a relic and more of a 'meh' item. As good as it is it should have been left as a mythical weapon.

All other missions are Federation themed just with a KDF skin on top, therefore they fail very hard at creating the Klingon feel.

You don't actually end up with the real Sword of Kahless, it's just a replica.

That said, shared missions could use more of an Empire feel to them for KDF.
Constant exposure to the same opinions leads to continual reinforcement of ideas until eventually, any challenge, no matter what form it takes, is going to be met with a disproportionate sense of outrage. Room for reasoned discussion can no longer occur.
