Re: Why do the Klingons have equal technology to the Federation
The overall average level of galatic technology has also progressed.
Clearly civillian cargo ships travel faster during TNG times than during Enterprise.
The Klingons may just use the galatic standard in a more pronounced military fashion.
Cassidy Yates and Kivas Fajo had slow ships but that might be from economic considerations. Anti-matter and warp coils still have high costs for money using civilians.
