We don't need stuff that we already have for these factions. It would just take more development time that is needed more on other projects.

Qo'Nos first city is the only known social location in canon which makes sense, so even if you added a massive starbase in orbit like ESD, all it will be there for is just display. i would then have to ask, why is there if it serves no purpose?

im not against expanding stuff, making it better but we dont need to add stuff just because its cool.
I pretty much agree with this. Having two different social zones located at one place would really serve no purpose other than taking away development time and dividing the players between those zones.
If anything of this sort, there needs to be a KDF outpost/starbase or a flotilla (like it has been suggested several times) in space sectors further away from Omega Leonis like Romulan or Deferi space.
I wouldn't mind seing Ty'Gokor one day through even if it's in Omega Leonis - it's such an iconic place for the Klingon Empire. Rura Penthe as well - the new mission was a hit, let's make something more out of it!

Besides unlike ESD, old or new, I like comming back to Qo'noS. First City is pretty darned epic as it is!

Qapla'!

Well to befair: it's not uncommon to "localise" foreign country or city names in such a way. Kronos is the proper terran phonetic equivalent.

This. Also, I'm not 100% sure but I think it was written Kronos in the subtitles of the undiscovered country.
But I am 100% sure I have seen it written Kronos several times long before jar jar got even close to Star Trek.

At the very least it's been mentioned in the Encyclopedia.
It's also present with the written version of the shipname "Kronos One".

Romanized spellings of translated names. when you see a name like "Россия", translated it comes back as "Rossiya" and translated further you get "Russia" from Latin to English. its the same here Kronos is the translated form of Qo'Nos.

personally I think the kdf have it better then feds, they have the ship yard for ship related stuff, they have a separate academy area comparable in size to star fleet academy and they have a nice large city area with more post terminals then I care to count, they also have banking facilities at the academy and at first city.
feds only have the starbase and academy.

so while kdfs have 3 distinct and separate areas feds only really have 2.
the shipyard in the starbase should be a distinct and separate area and the map for the starbase is nowhere near as big as the Qo'Nos map even when you factor in the starbase shipyard and has nowhere near as many mail terminals.

the kdf and fed academys are about equal to each other but the fed shipyard would be better if it was a separate facility, the starbase should be expanded in size and have much more separated areas and more mail terminals dotted around, make it feel like a city in space.

hopefully this new starbase update will in part address some of these issues.

but I have noticed there is another starbase type structure in earth orbit that is never used and would be an ideal spot for a separate shipyard.
