To be honest, I been playing STO since the beta, but I have not play the KDF side too much. My toon it's only a Captain because I can't play too long before I get a headache with the color scheme that we currently have on the UI. But I tested the new UI on Tribble and I love it. I plan to concentrate on my KDF toon from Tuesday on. I rolled a Romulan on Tribble, so I really do not want to do it all over again so soon, so I just going to wait. I'm really looking forward the leveling up.
I will actually be spending more time on the kdf with my orion soon as LoR goes live, that I no longer have to be forced with red hot poker near the eye feeling while playing my kdf character, for me its been bad since its some color blind stigmatism that causes massive headaches after about 20 minutes of that red...might have something to do with all the other colors topped onto the red...anyway i degress,
I think the kdf isnt going anywhere, infact my fleet is pretty well split with wanting to support kdf and fed fleet bases which is a good sign that shows people are still interested to see the kdf develop more...
I did find it sad that romulans allied with kdf got the fingerless gloves first tho...and I would still like to see the star trek 3 uniforms for kdf options to start with...
theres alot of love thats still needed for you guys but its a step in the right direction
But ironically, I'm planning to roll the Gorn I've been wanting to play but wanted to wait until the KDF actually had 1-50.

IIRC, the Rommies will only have access to KDF ships from level 1-4, not the end-game ships (VA/Fleet Ships).
A Romulan-focused player will have to work with only Rommie ships at end-game; therefore, if the goal is to get into the high-end KDF ships then the player has to roll a KDF toon (same with FED end-game ships).
