why not? I mean there are good/bad Ferengi (like klingons) but I really would love to roll a KDF Ferengi.

I agree. There are even Ferengi in the First city, so it's not like the KDF are opposed to them.

Additionally, we need a race with the Ferengi lobes trait on the KDF, for economic balance reasons. The 20% savings really add up over time if you're buying stuff for reputation/fleet/embassy projects.

I don't see why not. The Ferengi after all exploit all business oportunities wherever they are. Hell, they worked with the Dominion.

I think it's ok to have Ferengi in KDF since more than less Ferengi disagree with Rom's policies. The only obstacle would be Klingons despising Ferengi, but since KDF is not all Klingon any more I think it could work.

Perfect example of how the KDF content would be so much better if it reacted to your character's race. With the Federation, it works, because the whole premise of the Federation is that all these people mostly get along and mostly like the idea of coexisting with other species. The KDF... well.

The Letheans, as far as I can make out, came into the KDF to save their own skins, and the Klingons put up with them because the telepathy is useful, but treat them like dirt and are secretly scared of them. The Gorn never intended to be KDF in the first place so heaven only knows what they think. What the Orions REALLY think of the Klingons is anyone's guess, but "suckers" possibly comes into it. Et cetera. We could have a lot of fun with this. (Can a Foundry mission react to player race? If so, has anyone done that?)

If the Ferengi came in (and I like the idea), that would be the same thing SQUARED:
the Klingons put them somewhere on a level with tribbles, though they might weaken if you had a REALLY big bat'leth for sale
the Orions would probably look down on them as amateurs, having been smugglers themselves for a million years or whatever
the Letheans are desperate enough for any kind of dodgy dealing so a Ferengi would always be useful, and being basically telepathy-proof the Ferengi might be happier to deal with them than most

I think I see what zix74itaelite is getting at - there's no reasonable way that the Ferengi would be officially in the KDF. But actually they're not properly in the Federation either, if I remember rightly. They have various official arrangements with the Federation, that's all that gets them into Starfleet; but Ferengi being Ferengi, they're bound to have similar arrangements with the KDF too, if at all possible... The Orions would probably listen to such an offer if the Klingons wouldn't, and if I remember rightly the Orions have enough clout in the alliance that they could have a private deal with the Ferengi if they damn well wanted to.

If I recalled, the Ferengi for the most part are a Neutral Race.

The ones that join the Federation are probably just following in Nog's footsteps (if I can be a carebear for a minute) while any others would probably be following Grand Negas Rom's advice.. and let's face it..he is an idiot. And he has been Pro Federation anyway since the end of the Dominion War, right? So if that's still the case in this game's time line, (can't recall at the moment) It makes more sense for the Ferengi to still be neutral but with Federation sided issues vs. the Klingons.

Quark said it best.. "We aren't warriors.. we're business men!"
You think that your beta test was bad?

This. Ferengi make more sense as neutral, off-to-the-side 'traders'. There's really no need to have them in either the Federation or the KDF.

Forget the Romulans, the Ferengi should be our third faction with a whole series of missions geared toward stupid and exploitative business practices.

Ferengi and Klingons?

No. Just... no.
