It's lvl 50 and I'm too lazy to level another KDF.
Yeah, the KDF doesn't have a dedicated sci ship class, and the Federation also has a slight edge when it comes to escorts.

That's part of the reason why I'm loling at all the Fed cruiser captains talking about how weak their cruisers are. . .if they want DPS cruisers, they're more than welcome to join the KDF

Part of the point of having two factions (in my opinion) is so that each faction can have some exclusives that balance each other out and keep the factions from being carbon-copies of each other.

Give me a different HUD, and you have yourself a deal.

As I've said before: The Federation gets the edge when it comes to escorts (and don't tell me you don't have an edge there. . .you effing do) and science ships. The KDF gets the battlecruisers.

If you folks want the awesomeness of KDF battlecruisers, you had best start loudly advocating that the KDF be given 5-tac console escorts/raptors, more flexible raptors, and a science ship class. Otherwise, you're just unbalancing the game by giving the Federation MORE toys while taking uniqueness from the KDF.

Either that, or join the KDF! We're always welcome to new warrior in our ranks.
I am a Klingon General, so cannot be snowed by the usual denial.

The Escorts on the Klingon side, the BoPs are so OP it is unspeakable.

Feds can now experience the "Electric Slide" of the BoPs with the Kumari.

Any ship with a Battlecloak or "get away free card" as I like to call them is OP.

Lol. I love the red HUD that the KDF rolls. Course I am a dedicated Cylon pilot from BSGO, and that red HUD is the bomb. Sorry ladies.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.
Why the Devs can't make PvE content harder. <--- DR proved me wrong!

I'd love to play on my Klingon toons and with each "OLD" ship added to the Federation lineup it makes the KDF that much more attractive, but the UI is a deal breaker, as much as I want to play KDF, spending hours huddled in a darkened room with a blinding headache isn't my idea of fun.

It is clear to me that you do not know what you're talking about.

Good day, sir. I said GOOD DAY!

I don't mind it, myself, but it is apparently an issue for a lot of folks, and keeps them from playing as much as they normally would. That's why it ought to be changed to something a little less grating, or we should have a second color scheme option that we can select. Maybe light brown/dull yellow, something a little easier on the eyes.

Yep, BoPs can make for tricky sci builds, because they can throw a wide variety of things on there. The main issue is that they don't have the innate boost to AUX, and they can't shield tank nearly as well as a sci ship.
