Oh if you want the short answer itsb because the KDF is awesome both in terms of lore and story and background and in the community. Plus someone has to save the quadrant while the federation sits around doing nothing.
^ This, as much as Cryptic secretly behind the scenes hopes that we will go away, give up or convert to the Federation. Us KDF players have stuck it out and will continue to do so. We won't go away and won't quiet down until faction equality occurs and remains.

LoR content was a step in the right direction but only the bare minimum was done and many of us do believe it was only so they could publicly say that they have 3 factions all of which can be started at level 1 as a players first character.

The next season will show us all whether the content will continue to develop for the KDF or was it a one off publicity stunt. No matter what the future holds us KDF players will continue the fight for faction uniqueness (which seems to be all but no existence these days apart from some missions) and equality.

I have characters in both main factions and next week I'll be rolling a Romulan after the main hype has settled down and the servers become more stable. So no one can say I am only a KDF player, but I do have to say the best gameplay, community and fun can be had on the KDF side.

As many have said in this thread, there is a lot the KDF can offer players and some very good reasons to play the KDF too. If a player can't see this, the must just hate the Klingons for no good reason, and for those people I truly feel sorry for as they are denying themselves the best part of STO. It's like buying a 4WD and only driving it on the road and in the city, never taking it into the bush with the mud.

Why play KDF? What a silly question. Backed up by sloppy reasoning in the OP. A better question might be, "Why play a faction other than KDF?" Let's see maybe these will convince.

- Far easier to farm dilithium as a KDF member. Feds need those rich claim thingies to even come close.

- Firepower, instead of diplomacy. Some people greatly enjoy hearing themselves speak. Me? I'd rather just shoot.

- Until LoR went live (Mind you, I am not complaining. I like the new material a lot.) I could reasonably assume the guy in the next Vor'cha over from mine knew what he was doing in an STF. Because this wasn't his first rodeo.

- Ask a Klink player a question, either here or ingame, and you get an answer you can use. Instead of, "Shut up, n00b!" Try this with a typical SpoonFed player, who is normally only ingame to collect this week's new shiny.

- No new ships in 2+ years. Yet somehow, all of the Klink designs currently available are still excellent choices in both STFs and PvP. Could it be the Captains rather than the Shinies? I like to think so.

Saved the best for last, though. Why play KDF? Because I frakkin' bloody well want to! You have the nerve to challenge my honor by saying that those green blooded homeless vagabonds are better than me? They couldn't even save their own worlds from those blasted Toasters.

Oops. Sorry. Wrong game.

The Empire is as strong now as it has ever been. Yet the Rihannsu escapees, led by Adama and Roslyn(Dammit! That is not what I meant to type!) I mean D'Tan and Temer are in search of a new home. Their flotilla wanders the heavens while they beg for scraps from Starfleet and run like frightened epohhs from their own Security forces. In time they will be far enough from the remnants of their colonies where the Cy-Tal Shiar will have little choice but to let them go. Then they can find the Final Five who will lead them to the Lords of Kobol and Earth. Ummm, I meant Mol'Rihan.
Would Diogenes' search have been faster or better if he had the Internet?
I'm guessing, Oh HELL no!

Went really went on can't be discussed in a family-friendly forum such as this one.

This question seems to be posted in the KDF forums every couple of days now. Really? You know the answer to this, OP, I've seen your handle enough.


Because it's fun.


There doesn't need to be any other answer whatsoever.

Real question should be "Why play fed". Because that was first and only option?

KDF has been the veteran race for a long time.. the beginners have been the fed, sure I have a fed (my ferengi, love those ears), but not played much. Fed fleets are everywhere, feds are everywhere.. but that is because you have to start off as a fed (this is before LoR of coarse)

Every faction should be tried, play and just enjoy. Stop this "why" cr@p

Mostly a KDF player
Fleet *Working as Intended. Not a slam, just a way of life... contact me in game for invite @emt27

Ha ha. You sir deserve a prize. Wrong franchise definately, but the Romulan story arc is very D?j? vu I'll grant you. So if Sela is the Imperious Leader whos Baltar? Don't say its Tovan.

Well said, can't argue with any of it, spot on and was a good laugh with the franchise similarities.

The biggest drawback is that the doffs are so god damn expensive.

Klinks are cooler and fit their villain role from TOS days better. Feds blowing up everything in sight flying lock box ships is totally silly. Add in dilithium rewards and PvP and fierce looking ships. It is a nice package despite Cryptic's neglect.
