** J'mpok gets this as he is responsible for the Klingon Empire's FaceHeelTurn and has committed numerous war crimes like forced relocations as well as conquering the Gorn race. Ultimately, the Federation has to ally with him to keep the Iconians off their back. A DownplayedTrope example as events strip him of most political allies as well as get his best friends killed.
** The Female Changeling gets one after avoiding this in ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine.'' After spending thirty years in prison for murdering over 800 million Cardassians and God knows how many other people, she's allowed back into the Dominion in exchange for stopping the Jem'Hadar remnant's invasion. It's also clear she's learned ''nothing'' from the experience.
** Actually {{Subverted}} despite first appearances with the Iconians. [[spoiler: The Iconians look like they get away with massive destruction of the galaxy but they ended up with the same situation as Sela. It turns out their actions caused all of the pain and distress which drove them to all that murder in the first place.]]

* CrapsackOnlyByComparison: Things have gone downhill compared to the era the shows took place in, but it's still a much better world to live in than say, the settings of VideoGame/DeadSpace or VideoGame/MassEffect3.
* CrapsackWorld: Nimbus III. It was bad in Film/StarTrekVTheFinalFrontier. But the Federation pulled out a hundred years ago in game ([[ShownTheirWork and in the Expanded Universe]]). Now its home to nothing but raiders, pirates, slavery, prostitution and nightclubs.

VideoGame/MassEffect3. There are still awful ''places'' in the setting which are full-on crapsack, though, such as Nimbus III.

Added DiffLines:

* FriendlyEnemy: What basically the Klingon-Federation War devolves to due to outside factors. While they start their conflict beating each other up, they end up having a conference about how to defeat the Borg on Bajor despite being actively at war with one another. Omega Force and the Honor Guard were already teaming up against them. This ends up involving the KDF player and the portion of the Klingon military controlled by the ambassador in the war against the Dominion Remnants. The Klingons also cooperate with the Federation Temporal Security Agency from the 29th century. Really, by the time the war officially comes to an end, it's obvious both sides have bigger problems to deal with.

** The Federation-Klingon War is almost completely forgotten after the "Klingon War" and "Warzone" arcs, and every time the two sides meet after that they're engaged in TeethClenchedTeamwork. Cryptic finally resolved it in "Surface Tension", with mixed results.[[labelnote:*]]Some players were irritated about the mission glossing over the Klingons' war crimes committed in the name of expansionism and blaming the whole thing on the Undine.[[/note]]

Other Klingon players felt the Federation made a far more worthy adversary, or at least unique one, than all the others they fought.

** The True Way really get no resolution in the Cardassian arc (yes, you captured two of their leaders, but come on, they're a terrorist organization).

to:

** The True Way really get no resolution in the Cardassian arc (yes, you captured two of their leaders, but come on, they're a terrorist organization). This gets tied off with the revamped and condensed Cardassian arc, [[spoiler:since you make peace with the New Link which is in control of the True Way]].

** Players of all factions will hear plenty of well-known Klingon epithets over the course of the game, such as "petaQ", "taHqeq", "veQ", "baktag" and so on.

* SchrodingersCanon: The game is made of this, taking place after the "alternate" universe StarTrek2009 broke off from the "Prime" universe. Since the odds of new canon stories set in the Prime universe are vanishingly small, the devs take unmitigated glee in yanking anything from any point in Star Trek continuity and mashing it all together.

** "House Pegh" has the eponymous Klingon [[InformedAttribute black-ops team]] in possession of a wide-area cloaking device capable of hiding ships in formation with the equipped vessel from Iconian sensors. [[SarcasmMode Surely this is a brilliant technological advance that will change the course of the war!]] Nope, never mentioned again, which amazingly is one of the ''lesser'' reasons the mission is considered an IdiotPlot.

However, we learn soon enough that being able to hide half or two-thirds of the Alliance fleet would not make much of a difference in the war.
