The Spock VO from the Sirius sector block you qoute has none of the angst and Klingon hate you contribute to it in your opening post.
No where does it give the impression of the KDF being savages or that the federation is bent on destroying them like they are savages.
All the intro truelly does is set the tone that the UFP is in dire straights and the quadrant is in the turmoil of war and conflict. Its a intro trailer and doesnt set the KDF as being anything other that what it is, a faction that embraces war and conquest. As any ST fan already knows.
Could be but the VO does paint the fact as you say that the Federation is in dire straights due to it's war with the Klingons - it is the players job to turn this around so to speak by being a good captian and destroying the klingons through several of the next missions. My question was does this effect whether people end up playing KDF or not - one person says no. I think its time to end the war.
