And noone wants to take that option away from them if they want to use it.
However the Klingons, probably the ones with the largest shipyard capability would
need to supply enough ships for its vast military.
And as we've seen in reality it's often easier to design a unit that emulates the capbilites
of an enemy's unit but is built using domestic parts in domestic production facilities than
it would be to build new production facilities just for one type of unit.
And using as many parts common with other ships as possible also cuts down on logistic issues.

that justifies a new skin that looks like a klingon ship but has the same capabilities (station setup and hangers). it might be logical to use captured enemy ships in the short term, but maintaining them would never be easy and a more home grown design would be needed before long.

Yeah, I know of somebody who will be trying to get it for their alien idea, which is very loosely based idea-wise from the firefly reavers. Matches the theme perfectly. Wouldn't mind some ability to change/customize it though.

but you can customize it. You can change pinstripe colors on 4 of the pointy things at the very tips of them.
