and don't forget the gregariuos laughter and drink spillage when saying "Krafting". Its highly important for an accurate KDF Krafting portrayal.

Well I just got my Gorn to Lt Gen last night, giving me three KDF Lt. Gens to my one Fed Vice Admiral, so clearly I prefer the KDF experience.

Are we still Monster play? No not really. But we suffer from a lack of an identity to counter that of the Feds. What I mean by this is that the Feds episodes (at least the early ones) give them an understanding of what their role is in the current "universe". The KDF on the other hand especially because they are more of a conglomeration of like minded powers in STO don't really have a feel for why they are fighting the Feds. Sadly we have no episodes dedicated to the Undine threat that really is the core of our beef with the Feds and this fails to give the KDF a sense of "self" if you will.

There are not enough "episodic" missions to break up the grinding be it PvP, Nebula or Expanse, or even the new daily Pi Canis missions. Even with the weeklies you will have to grind. That being said, the grind is not like the ugly grind my first KDF toon did to get to what was the level cap at the time.

PvP really hasn't changed all that much, they've made adjustments here and there (mostly with abilities), but the core problem of being stuck in a boxing match with no real purpose to the contest remains. The current PvP they have is great for a 10-20 minute PvP fix, but after playing these games over and over it gets dull quickly. We need something bigger and more interesting. (See my Kavrot Sector idea for more on this)

The sets are not necessary yet, but I fear as they become more common and new sets are added some sort of set will become essential. The basic idea of these sets reminds me greatly of the SWG jewelry sets and those quickly became vital to high end competition.

Raptors can be great ships, while they have their own set of weaknesses like all escorts if the role you want to play is pure DPS, they are hard to beat, but easily killed, if you know what I mean.

To be fair much of the above can be applied to the Fed side too. The game really does have a lack of direction and focus in many places, no doubt the by product of the truncated development time.

Having been with STO since the 'dawn of time'(i.e., Closed Beta) like many other KDF I have to say that while I totally agree with the above quote I also have to chime in that great strides have been made at no doubt alot of hard work by an understaffed production team.

Better, but still lacking. X-/ We're finally getting more clothing, gear, ships, missions, etc-but it's still a bigger Grind Fest than the Feds and we still don't have Diplomacy. Even Klinks have diplomats in TV/Movie ST, they're just more combat oriented and brow-beating than the other races. XD

This is very true. My point was more that where the game lacks in many ways it is across the board and not specific to the KDF side.

Is this like "Last Klingon Standing"? That'd be a fun mini-game and great accolade.
