I've got a Gorn tac captain that I've been leveling up. I understand that they are allies to the Klingons but going through the story line my inner Trekkie feels queasy with my big iguana doing very Klink stuff. I was ok with him running around with a bat'leh but the mediating at Kahless' shrine got me.
Having all Klingon allies become Klingons more or less is somewhat annoying for me, but I think it is unavoidable. Totally agree with you though.

That's because nobody gave two thoughts about how this game should work out back then. All they had was "Fed vs Klingons", but Klingons would lack the customization options the diverse UFP would offer, so they simply turned the Klingon Empire into the "Red Federation" where everyone appearantly follows Klingon habits and culture (which is of course because there were no resources or time to create content like homeworlds and starting locations and so on).

Anybody else feel this way?
I would have to believe that Klingons that resist alien integration are like rl rednecks.
They're around, but they're out in the boonies where said aliens probably wouldn't want to go anyway.
If there was a type of discrimination against an alien "warrior of the empire" then it would degrade an already fragile relationship imo. In-game (if it's proper to use it as an example) you have to investigate some Orions.
J'mpok states that "some defiance is to be expected".
From this, it's implied that there is alot of internal diplomacy when it comes to alien - Klingon relations...far more than one may expect.
If the Empire was ruled with an iron fist, there would be no aliens in the KDF because they would all be dead.
Things Fedside, however, feel alot more insidious.
EDIT: TL;DR Doing Klingon stuff is fine because you're a Warrior of the Empire...I think that's all that matters.
