I can only agree with this... After installing the game and logging in, a brand new player should have a choice of either start a fed or a KDF toon... That is, this new player needs a coherent path to level and bring their toon to lvl 50 without mindless grind.

They just force you to do them because you can't play the rest of the game without them. At least in KDF, the pain is short, and technically if you play your cards right, you can get on with your doffing before you ever have to do any of that nonsense. In Fed? 7 levels of painfully extended tutorial for lame MK II garbage rewards. Followed by 13 more levels of dry, tasteless pabulum before you get to the same place that as a Klingon, you can START.
Not to put too much of an fine point on things...but you are flat out wrong.

Why, you ask?

Simple -- because the truth is that Klingon players do not "start" at level 21...anyone who plays a Klingon has to wade through 20 some-odd levels of prissy federation indoctrination before they can "start" a Klingon charactor...

So no -- players who play solely Klingon are not spared any of the "pain" associated with grinding up a low level character...they simply have to do it in a faction that they consider themselves at war with (the enemy) first...

To be honest, I actually find the playstyle in low-level ships better. However, that is entirely invalidated by the fact that it is unsustainable. One must always be looking ahead. And in the grand scheme of things, only the end goal matters. Everything else is a distraction from it.

Quite simple: Some of us can look beyond the present. We see what happens at the end. We know that everything up to that point is thus completely irrelevant. Basically everything you do at the beginning has zero relevance to the actual game. Every last ship, every last item acquired...ends up in the dumpster. It has no relevance to the actual game. As such, fooling around with it, especially when you cannot sustain it because the game will FORCE you to level whether you want it or not, is pointless. There is no option to simply STOP levelling and stay where you are. Since the outcome is thus inevitable, everything up to that point is meaningless.

True, but one most only suffer through this inanity ONCE for any number of Klingons. Whereas every time you make a Fedling, you have to suffer through this inanity each and EVERY time.
