I posted this in the GPD before, but now that Klingons officially have their own forum perhaps this is the correct place. Here is a quote from GameStop's site about STO(note the first bullet point):

Klingon Expansion Module - Coming March 2010!
  • Adds narrative quest content and features for the Klingon Faction experience
  • Klingon Fleet Actions - Form up with your closest friends and do battle in large engagements.
  • A New Klingon Ship - You asked for it, we made it: A Tier 2 Klingon Battle Cruiser.
  • Klingon Star Clusters - Seek out new life and civilizations ... and subjugate them! Additional PvE content for the Klingon faction


Source: http://www.gamestop.com/Catalog/Prod...oduct_id=73923

We knew the Klingons were getting star clusters, but this is the first I've heard of them getting "narrative quest content". Devs, please confirm whether this is correct or not.

The narrative quests could just be the STF content we now have access to. Hopefully we do get more, but I'm not getting my hopes up for anything major when it comes to Klingon side. It's been made clear we'll always be 2nd fiddle to the Feds.

I would just be happy getting the species themed outfits you see the Gorn, Nausicaan, and Orion NPC's walking around in. It's a shame the NPC's have more customization options than we players do.

Amen to that, bro! Can we at least have more than one kind of ugly boots for the Klingon woman? Sheesh.

Yes, it could. However on the page I linked to the STF's are listed seperately from the section about new Klingon content. Whether that means anything or not is unknown, which is why it would be nice to have a Dev speak up about this.

simply put-new Klingon PvE content will be re-skinned Fed missions for at least the next 2 months

do not expect to see episodic PvE for klingons anytime before May at the earliest.

with all due respect, we've been over this before. the reason why Dev's won't speak up on the matter, is simply because the information at hand says it all.

the information referred to in your link is the same as it is here http://www.startrekonline.com/upcoming_content
which has been clarified in a STOked interview with Gozer, one of the content developers at Cryptic
http://www.jupiterbroadcasting.com/?p=1625

when they say 'Narrative quest content' they mean the STF's, Star Clusters, and Fleet Actions.

the reason why the question 'when are Klingons getting episodic PvE' was not discussed here
http://www.startrekonline.com/node/1275
is because it's still in the works.

there is no release date for Klingon Episodic PvE anywhere we would expect it, such as the engineering reports (if you go by this, it's not even 'under development')
http://forums.startrekonline.com/sho...d.php?t=132130

nor is Klingon Episodic PvE content anywhere on the tentative release calendar
http://www.startrekonline.com/calendar

real Klingon storyline missions are obviously not that big of an issue for Cryptic at this time, nor are KDF player's Subs. otherwise, they would be doing something about them.

to further prove my point, here is a list of content in the test-build for the 45-day patch ('Update 1') that is currently being tested on Tribble as we type

http://forums.startrekonline.com/sho...d.php?t=134008

if by 'narrative quest content' you mean 4 re-skinned Fed fleet actions and re-skinned Fedstar clusters, yes.

if by 'narrative quest content' you mean Episodic PvE content, it's simply not there.

no mention of a seperate tutorial unique to the KDF.

i'm not too sure that this is enough to get most players to consider rolling Klingon as a main, seeing as how Fleet actions and Star clusters (if implemented at lower levels) would serve the same purpose as the Empire Defense missions, a short break from the PvP grind to level-cap.

we're still not getting the same attention to story that Federation players have had since before launch, even in PTR (Tribble) and i for one am disappointed.
