Here's a thought, stop allowing the Feds to use them until the KDF can.

*to the tune of Tom Petty's "It's good to be King"*

Oh we'll get 'Pengs....
when dogs grow wings...
But I can't help if I...
Still dream time to time...

We know you can tweak rewards as the FE reruns prove.
Give the peng to Klingons? you gotta be kidding then the feds won't have their unfair advantage anymore that they can exploit like they do and they will start crying they are being mistreated and then Cryptic will give in and nerf something else on the Klingon side. face it we KDF are the red headed stepchildren of STO.

The Devs have said that Klingons will get Har'Peng torpedoes at some point. I think the last word on it from a Dev is that they will be attached to a mission at some point, but they will likely appear first in the DOff system.

Also, they aren't getting rid of the B'Rel. Heretic said that it is on the schedule to be adjusted much like carriers are now.
I've posted on the idea of the B'rel being the sticking point for KDF 'pengs in another thread. It basicly goes like this:

B'rel can fire torpedos without decloaking for more than a very short window.
An all torpedo B'rel could divert all power to just Aux and Engines, thus being very agile and having max power for sci abilities.
The Hargh'Peng's proc is capable of doing direct to hull damage to shielded targets.
The ammount of 'pengs potentially loaded on a B'rel could far outstrip the hazard emitter capability of most ships it's likely to face, and with the ability to fire every three seconds, this would get... nasty.

In short, an all Hargh'Peng weapons loadout on the B'rel would be game breaking. However, if Cryptic made the Hargh'Peng either unique, or gave it a global cooldown half of the individual cooldown like Tricobalts, you'd make it far more balanced and less spammable.

These suggestions surface quite often, and yet we still get no word from Cryptic as to wether these changes will happen, are even being taken on board, or even getting read by the devs. It's a sad state of affairs, the general response on the topic seems to be along the lines of "shut up, you'll get them when you get them".

Well, I think it all boils down to faction diversity. Maybe instead of asking for what the Federation has just because the Federation has it, you can think of your own, Klingon specific idea for a special weapon?

Wasn't there some special torpedo that the Klingons developed?

Yeah... I think they called it a Har'peng or sumthin like that.

Sorry, sorry I could not help it!

Yeah, the 'Pengs.

I think the KDF (if the Feds have our 'Pengs) should get 'Genesis Torpedoes'... In addition to the same burst damage/HoT as the 'Pengs, we should also be able to use them to create new KDF content, via new planets to explore... LOL

I think GreatBriton got chocolate in Jermbot's peanut butter. Either way, and aside form my being a jackass earlier, I think these are good ideas that together provide a nice out for the Dev team.

Okay, same for Carriers.
