This is why I quit playing for the last 9 month. i came back and found a bunch of new stuff, but quickly had to go right back to repeating missions over and over until I was bored, just to get from Cmdr 5 to BG 5.

I see another Fed ship coming online very shortly, as if they need more ships. It's already on Tribble for Pete's sake. Yet, the only things mentioned in the tribble patch notes related to Klingons are a display bug for for borg parts on a raptor and the fix for a cloaking bug. It doesn't even say what bug. I can only hope it's the bug where my BoFFs talking to me cancels cloak, but for all I know it could be a fix for many feds constantly whining about us having a cloak and being hard to detect, so the detection range gets cut in half or worse.

Other than the T5 Carrier and those new T6 ships, we still don't have any actual science type ships. Sure the BoP can work as a science ship, but with fewer science consoles and fewer total BoFF skills. To make matters worse, the database says the T3 BoP is supposed to had 1 eng and 2 sci consoles, but it actually has 2 eng and 1 sci, which is exactly what the T3 cruiser has.

As far as I know, we still don't have the equivalent of very rare Saurian BoFF with the efficient trait that we might get lucky to receive when leveling up. I also noticed we still only get a choice of 1 BoFF with those new officer missions, instead of one of each class and we pick 1 of the 3. I've got far too many science BoFFs and hardly any Engineer or Tactical BoFFs from those missions.

Just before logging off tonight I hit BG5 and found that instead of gaining equal access to B'Tran, I have to do the KDF versions of those way back in Captain's exploration cluster. I can understand having separate exploration cluster for the other areas, since all the other Fed exploration clusters are off fed space, but B'Tran is off Borg space, which both factions have access to. Both factions can be in the same Enemy Contact instance as "allies", so why can't we both be in the same exploration cluster?

This game should really be called ST:TFO (Star Trek: The Federation Online), because even with a year to give us more Klingon content, I only saw 1 storyline and the majority of our ships still only have 1 skin, unless we fork over cash for C-store points. While all the Fed ships I ever played had 3 skins to mix and match since closed beta.

In summary, stop giving the KDF, the Fed hand-me-downs like we're the red-headed step child noone wants, and treat us like equal customers by giving us equal content (KDF exclusive storyline missions, multiple skins for every ship, etc.).

Edit: Before anyone even thinks to say, "but there are more Fed players". 1: You have to play Fed to unlock Klingon. 2: The serious lack of content makes many folks stop playing Klingon and go back to playing fed, even if they'd prefer to play a Klingon, because the endless repetitions are not fun game-play.
I leveled up two Klingons first at release. Disgusted and disappointed at he lack of Klingon development I leveled some feds. I don't even log my Klingons in anymore. PvP kept things interesting, but ...uh....2 space maps? No more in a whole year? Whatever manager is in charge of THAT decision should have been fired and replaced. It's a recession/near depression; you can get good talent on the cheap usually.

I've ranted, and read many rants, reasonable complaints and people trying to nicely change minds through persuasion. After time I was left with one ugly realization : Klings are now, and will always be, a monster class. No amount of hot air will change it. Your mission is to be available for feds to pvp with.

If we don't speak up and continue to do so, there will never be any improvements on the KDF side. Since we're severely outnumbered by the folks who only play on the Fed side, we have to shout louder to even be heard of the roar of their whispers.

Signed entirely.

Although I'm getting tired of asking the Devs for content I paied for with my subscription in the first place and then seeing them using it time and again for more Fed and C-Store stuff.
