I am not entirely sure who reads these, but I have noticed some elements of Klingon play that may need tweaking.

First...upgrading ship components.

In Federation play, better and different types of weapons, shields and engines can sometimes be found by blowing up PvE ships. Often, these items are rewarded to the Fed player for completing a mission.

Not so for the Klingons. I have spent a great deal of time in the T'Ong Nebula and Khaless Expanse and have yet to find any weapons, shields or engines left behind by any exploding ships. I have gotten things like, combat rations, communications arrays, medical supplies...useless to a Klingon. By the same token, I have not received any equipment rewards for completing any missions (though we do get alot of points).

All this translates into is that Klingon Ships are kinda stuck with the Vanilla equipment package until A) the player earns enough EC's to buy better weapons OR B) earns enough Badges of Exploration in whatever degree to buy them that way. By using EC's, MkII at Tier 1 are available, MkIV at tier 2 are available...and so forth, but all weapons are disruptor based. To get the Plasma, Tetryon, etc... weapons, you have to go farming in the T'Ong Nebula. It IS the only way to get them.

As for shields and engines, you can buy the vanilla version, but from what I have seen, just like the weapons, the only way to get the better or specialized versions is to go farming the Nebula.

To upgrade the engines, weapons, and shields or my K'Tanco Cruiser, I had to run the Nebula Mission 13 times, almost exactly half of the time it will take me to get promoted to Commander. Having looked ahead, to do the same thing at the next tier, I will have to do the same thing all over again.

Tedious, monotonous...please take a look at this. There has to be an easier way. The feds have there own troubles here to be sure, but man...I really don't want to have to do all of that again, both for this character or the other.
