Re: Why do the Klingons have equal technology to the Federation

The Klingons were in space well before humanity was, as evidenced by the age of the monastery on Boreth. In Enterprise, we saw that they surpassed Earth's technology in the 22nd century, having shields, tractor beams, and photon torpedoes before Starfleet did, and having an established empire while Earth had only a smattering of colonies and trade routes.

So indications are that the Klingons had a headstart technologically, but didn't advance as quickly as humanity did.
