We'll get:

1 butt-fugly nigh useless battlecruiser,
1 Temporal Ambassador-ish mission and,
an extended (aka painfully and mercilessly drawn out fun murdering) tutorial which will be basically the same but now are spaced 2 lvls apart with XP reduced to half.
NO to ARC...Make It VOLUNTARY

my bet is they'll probably have a whole new tutorial and rework the existing one to come after that.

While I doubt we'll get a lot of content, I still highly doubt they'd go with that little either (and besides, the 'half XP' bit sounds like extra work they'd have to do with the systems for no profit).

Still, I'll stay with the 'Wait and see' attitude.

Been playing STO since Open Beta, and have never regarded anything as worse than 'meh'.

Did you smoke something illegal? There are no plans for more KDF missions. Just the tutorial and that's it.

DSTAHL: It is still on our to-do list, but there is no estimate to when these missions will be converted. For now, the only KDF content we're discussing is the upcoming revamp of the Klingon tutorial.
In my Stahl-English dictionnary, it means:

- we'll get substandard missions. Kill 5/5. Brag about your kills at the end because you're supposed to be a Klingon warrior. It will feel like doing the Tau Dewa Patrol. For real.
- they've discussed it. A lot. Because they love discussing about stuff, more stuff, and eventually what could be done for the KDF. They have glorious, epic plans. But in no way it is added to the schedule and turned into something playable.

And yet players on these forums keep begging Cryptic to make a Romulan Faction. Look at how incapable they are with the KDF.

To do that to the Romulans as well? It's just going to make more people angry and/or annoyed.

I don't think they would be reworking the KDF tutorial if they weren't going to give KDF level 1 access without being tied to the Feds.

Cryptic / PWE isn't stupid. S7 brought in a wave of new and returning players, and its surely no coincidence that S8 launch coincides with the release of Star Trek Into Darkness. They know they will get a lot of new players, and a lot of them will want to play the Klingons. And they will want to play the Klingons immediately.

A new tutorial is a much bigger investment than porting missions from Fed-side where all the artwork and assets are already there and you just need to tweek some dialogue. It makes no sense to go to the trouble of making a new tutorial if they aren't going to deliver more.

I'll wait and see. But the whole thing just seems lackluster thus far. And really, you know, consistent with their past efforts. So I'm not holding my breath with anticipation or anything like that.

Looks like The Romulan fans are the real winners of May.
Agreed. Click my Link (It is the same one hawk has)

Additional ships would be nice, specificly something to off set the massive advantages the UFP faction has recieved and will continue to recieve in its ship selection.. even if its the SAME currently existing ship models with further updates and tweeks to the stats, or new weapon,system, and BOFF loadouts. Additional character costume options are highly desireable..and I do not mind at all if they are C-Store.

This faction will never equal the UFP faction for over all content. I am willing to accept this. I how ever am not willing to tolerate this being half a faction, or 2/3rds of a faction, or 3/4's of a faction for another year. If thats all we get is a Tutorial and a smidgen of mission content with excessive XP rewards for a fast levelling track I will have finally hit the point of no longer willing to support STO and will go find another game that is far more balanced in its play. Or even return to a couple of my old favorites.

We allready made it clear that "all at once" is acceptable..which may mean we don't see anything much at all for the KDF between now and May. But I am hoping that the studio got the clue that the "all at once" had best be fairly substancial.

I refuse to tolerate for much longer pumping cash into half a MMO. If we don't see substancial improvement to the KDF faction come May/June, I'm gone. The Fed player base can have thier Federation only club.

I've allready spent a couple thousand or so on this game over the last three years. I'm not that willing to spend any more unless I see some real overall improvement, and inclusuion of what should have been here at game launch.
