I agree with this. The KDF needs the episode content.

Also, non-spiked boot options for KDF females.

Would you like alternate storylines within each episode? What other costume options would you like to see for the KDF?

Alternate endings would be nice, but are by no means necessary. 5 missions with 1 ending are more needed than 1 mission with 5 endings, since it is quantity that the KDF is lacking. That said, I think alternate endings are a "must" for all future FEs, to allow the different factions to truly "express" themselves, rather than pigeonholing the KDF into a Fed stereotypical ending.

What I really don't like is the fact you have to gather all the material for your starbase as well as Omega and Romulas marks.

I can uderstand the starbase but what about just donating Omega and Romlas marks.I would like to see STO get back to missions and to the storyline.

To me the Kdf seem fine except they lack free specialty ships eg science.They do have ship with more univsal boffs slots.

Alternate storylines? No, I don't care about that. Just a good selection of episodes that show how the KDF conflict with other factions has been developing. A decent tutorial would be nice too, one that has the character establishing some warrior credentials.

As far as costume options go, I just want some options that don't look big and clunky for female aliens and joined Trills.

Do you feel like you're focusing on building up starbases because their isn't much else to do? Is your goal to get the fleet weapons and ships? Would you like regular single-player missions to give dilithium and mark rewards?

If They had just taken the time to create ONE New KDF Mission a month over the last year...,
(or even One Every-Other Month)

Much of the current and on-going Klingon Wrath could have been avoided.

Same holds true for the PvP Gang.

They didn't even have to be new Maps, most players would have settled for old maps with just a bit of tweeking to make it a bit different.

Hell, PvP'ers would have settled for ANY map, with open conflict.

Well, it does seem that Cryptic has put a lot of focus and resources into developing new systems for season 6 and season 7. In the future as Cryptic hires more STO devs, I hope that dev resources can be evenly divided between systems and mission making.

Addressing your pvp concerns, it would be cool it if the devs figured out a way to integrate the entire pvp system into the Fleet system. However, pvp would still be optional. I know that a large percentage of players never even touches pvp, so they should never be forced to have to play pvp if it did get integrated.

Basically, move the Klingon faction into the Reputation system and unlock its features when you hit various Klingon reputation tiers. Hit Klingon Reputation T1? Unlock Lt. Cmdr level ships and the KDF red style interface. Hit T2, unlock Cmdr level ships and certain disruptor weapons or whatever, all the way up to T5 and Klingon fleet participation and access to top-tier Klingon ships.

No need to make Klingon-specific missions (other than as reputation related), KDF players can queue with UFP ones...basically solves the entire Klingon faction issue. Stop worrying about independent Klingon content when most players won't use it and it wastes developer time.

More usefully, it can then be expanded to other groups as required, such as opening up a Romulan 'minifaction' the same way.

Parity between the factions. It is creating an issue where 20% of your customers are getting an inferior product for their investment (both money and time). That creates a massive amount of negativity. Nobody likes to feel like a second class citizen, especially if you're a paying customer.

They've fell into this nasty cause and effect cycle of "We don't develop for KDF because they're low pop, but they are low pop because we don't develop for them". That needs to stop somewhere, whether it means merging everything up or making an active effort to equalize both factions...

and no, adding a couple missions from 1-20 isn't even close to doing that. We need to be treated near to the same at 50, that means more ships, lots of cross faction stuff, costume options, etc. I'm not a fan of wasting time on episodic content either. Its way too much work for something that's one and done. Put the time and energy into long term stuff.
