LOL, as an above poster put it - it's free. So I'm obliged to forgive them for maiking my Klingon toons rescue Enterprise-C, then giving me something else when I complete the mission.

They could have wrote it better for the Klingons, but the Klingons are no better off than the Humans so a universe where they are free, but Humans are still around is much better than being slaves or dead. Besides what Klingon ship could they have used that would have the same impact as the Enterprise-C? There would have to be a Klingon ship that traveled through time and whose disappearance would cause a monumental change to history. Unfortunately none come to mind.

Season 8 is the key. With Cryptic bragging how they doubled the number of their staff, about Season 8 being bigger than a season and having more than half a year since the launch of S7 to the launch of S8, one would expect to see the fruits of their success and hard work.
Since they managed to increase staff, one would expect that they are finally doing well now and with increased numbers they can catter to the neglected parts of STO.

Needles to say, I don't expect KDF to ever be on the same level as the Feds. The Fed. has more players and is the rich utopia type. KDF has less and it's the sturdy warrior faction. And that is ok.
I would be satisfied if we get 1 KDF ship for every 3 Fed. I would be satisfied if we get 1 costume for every 3 or 4 the Fed. gets. That would be ok.
What is not ok is the statement they made that KDF will not be getting ships in the Z-Store any time soon. What is not ok is when asked about KDF ships getting the answer that the KDF will have ships availible from the next lock box. Well, so will the Feds. So what? If they made faction specific ships in the lockboxes like the temporal one was, I would understand this. But, I don't want my Klingon in a slow fat-ass Jem'Hadar Dreadnought. I want it in a Klingon design.

Like I said, I don't expect KDF to be ever at the same level as the Fed. Nor do I insist on it. What I consider to be finished KDF faction is having the opportunity to have the 30% from what the Fed. gets, but this to be done constantly. I'll consider KDF finished when I have missions and FEs thay would give me that Klingon feel instead of nonsence like "make Cassidy a nerve tonic". Or a Klingon Captain, Nausicaan pirate and Orion marauder beam to Drozana in TOS era and McCoy gives them a hypospray and is like "let's save some people now."
*facepalm* If they saw this trio in TOS timeline, they'd sound the alarm

I don't expect miracles in S8, but it will be the key to see if anyone is serious about KDF development any more.

You've stated that you thought that the upcoming Season Eight release would be "big" for the Klingon faction. Do you have anything you can add to that?

We've stopped calling it a season for starters. When we look at all the time and energy being put into this next update, it feels like it's shaping into something much larger. While we haven't shared specifics yet, we will be detailing our plans for the Klingon faction in the coming months.

Toss in the Romulan page stuff, the Friday screenshot, etc, etc, etc... and well, it's hard not to read the above as:

Anything? How about the 1000 times that mr.Stahl stated that there will be no new factions added untill the KDF is complete.

Now, excuse me if I don't consider the winter jackets as a Klingon uniform options, although I use them on every KDF toon in the lack of real options. Excuse me, but I don't consider KDF complete yet, not because it's not on par with the Fed. - which it'll never be, but because I'm offered to play Fed. FEs coloured in red atm.

I don't have anything against a Romulan faction. I wholeheartedly endorse it. I always wanted to PvP against Romulan players in their Warbirds, the Feds. just don't amuse me that much. lol
I could live with KDF's current arsenal of ships, it's fine by mine standards. But if Rommies are comming in S8 like you say, I'd expect a couple of costume options for the KDF, storyline that would be around the Empire's perception of the developments not the Federation, with unique mission content for the KDF. And possibly a couple of patrol missions in Klingon Space, like the Fed. has.
This would make S8 "big" for the KDF for me. Not some delusional dream that KDF will ever equal the Feds.

And just for the record, we can't add much more than the Romulan teaser poster to the thesis that there is a Romulan faction on the way. It could mean pretty much anything at this point.

If you're completely right though and I'm completely wrong about KDF getting anything out of S8, that would imply that someone is lying and I don't want to call anyone a liar, not just yet...

I just feel sorry for KDF players, its so hard to get used to a string of broken promises and I personally think they should just try to develop the KDF BEFORE tackling the Romulans. I've read posts where I've been appalled by Dan Stahl's attitude towards Klingon players. He seems somewhat belligerent when KDF players go to him for complaints about the quality of the project he is managing.

Can I also state that he left the project once before as well and only came back when PW offered him a fair bit of money. I think we personally need an executive producer who is going to be more straight up and not content to lie to us all the time. A little bit of honest from Cryptic would go a long way.

If Cryptic would just admit that the Klingons need work and actually spend some time doing it, even if it took a while and it was a gradual process. But they cut the bull and just were honest with the player-base with what they were doing. This game would instantly be better.

Forgive me for not having an answer but I missed the episode about Enterprise-C causing a monumental change to history. If a young Gorkon or Martok had been onboard one of the pursuing klingon ships mentioned in the mission it would likely have made more sense to my KDF toons rescuing the captured captain and his kamarag, without changing anything else in the mission except to have the option to have him distract the guard.

I think they just need to get rid of all the red stuff on the KDF side. Then I'd play it more.
