Ah yes I remember that now, I did think that was very shady that Picard did not come to Gowron's aid after sending out a distress call. Captain Kirk would have jumped into that fight before Gowron closed the transmission LOL

I chose the Federation. Now we get battlecloak, leech and true battlecruisers.

Also I chose Federation bc of a growing number of Romulans seek reunification with the Vulcans. An obvious reason for the federation.

I do wonder if somewhere down the road all Romulans and Remans cut their alliances and unite to form their own independent faction.
I'm very surprised that the Remans didn't act on the disaster to do just that, after what the Romulan's did to them. Like you said it may still happen. The Reunification was the biggest driving force in my personal decision in choosing Federation as allies. I laughed when I saw that you can use Federation ships once you choose an alliance, I would never give up my Romulan beauty.

So...we can assume from this that the Fed simply chose to sit by and do nothing, just as Picard did when Gowron asked for his assistance in "Redemption".
Actually it does. A federation diplomat would come in a decent ship, but I highly doubt that the Klingons would allow a heavily armed ship in, even if it was carrying a diplomat, on a diplomatic mission. So the ship would not be one of star fleets most powerful. A star fleet would agree to this simply because they want to broker peace. There are several cases of this in the Shows (Including TNG where the Diplomat's envoy got vaporized and the Diplomat had to learn to communicate on his own) where the chance of peace outweighed the risk for being attacked or ambushed.

And even if they did bring a ship like the Enterprise E, the Klingons would not allow it to help out as a matter of pride. Even your ship was told not to interfere, and if it weren't for how helpful you proved to be, You would have been in trouble. If a Federation ship made any attempt to help, the Klingons might not hesitate to attack it, claiming that it was attacking them, or acting aggressively.

Lastly, the prime directive does not apply here, because it's not a matter only involving one faction. The fact that the feds did not help could either equate to them following the Klingon orders, or they were showing respect to the Klingons and assumed they didn't need help. There were no distress calls, and things happened rather fast, with no signs of either us or the Klingons needing help.

Frankly, I'm surprised that there was only one Klingon ship defending the place.

Because the Gorn, as unbelievable as this is going to sound, are the smartest guys in the KDF.
This cracked me up, heheh. Funny because it's true.

The Klingons would have "requested" the Federation starship stay out of the action, as they also try to do to your character, and I'd imagine any sane Starfleet captain would obey since it isn't their space, and are "guests" of the Klingon Empire.

Story wise the Klingons didn't seem that open to working together. They came off as very rude to me. Maybe I was reading through the dialoges to fast and missed something.

Gamewise, I think there is better development for the Federation. I love my Orion KDF character but the Federation side does offer more options when it comes to ship choices and costume designs as well as bridge officer choices.

I went KDF just because I believed my toon would be more inclined to continue working with them after the events depicted in the campaign - the sacrifice of his Repulic superior to save the Klingon diplomat at the conference, the intervention of the I.K.S. Kang to help him deal with the surrounding Tal Shiar ships, etc.. From my toon's perspective, I just thought that working with the Klingons would be something that, for all practical purposes, he felt he had already started (and was obligated to continue after Temek sacrificed himself to preserve hopes of an alliance). The Feds stood around, expressed regret, etc., but the Klingons had already forged that bond that only exists in combat. What's more, siding with the Klingons represented an even greater putting aside of the past. While there was no great level of trust between the Feds and the old empire, a Federation colony had never been subject to the kind of unprovoked massacre as Khitomer and other Klingon planets had been during the last Klingon-Romulan war.

QUESTION, though: If you do go Fed, do you at least have access to the Fed's PVE content?
One thing I do find frustrating about playing Romulan-KDF is that there seems to be almost NO PVE content.
