Okay... This argument about faction-specific vs faction-agnostic content is way past old. While I personally miss the former and wish it would come back, I acknowledge that it just isn't going to happen.
Might I suggest looking at it another way?
Federation-specific content is also gone. According to the game's current narrative, the UFP, the KDF, the NRR, and the J'H and temporal agents originating from the 23rd century are all part of a newly forming Galactic Alliance. Federation morals/ideals have been adopted by the Alliance, because they have proven themselves to WORK. After all, that is how official Trek canon spins it.
Where would the Klingon Empire be had the federation abandoned its morals and ideals after the destruction of Praxis? The federation stepped up and extended a helping hand. And clearly Federation ideal-drivien ecological policies allowed Kronos to be spared extinction-level pollution of its atmosphere, though temporary evacuation would have been required. The Klingon Empire owes its survival to Federation ideals.
And the Romulans? With the destruction of Romulus, it was Federation Ideals, which the Klingon Empire went along with, that helped Romulan refugees establish a new homeworld and brought about a new Romulan government that is far more amicable than that of the RSE and its Tal'shiar masters.
The Dominion could have saved itself a lot of trouble had the founders simply taken Odo's word that the solids in the Federation were not the same as the ones which drove them into isolation. And that air of superiority exhibited in Laas, if a much more common attribute to the changeling species than Odo's more humble disposition, I say they brought the persecution on themselves and simply made so-called victimhood the excuse to strive to control and dominate, rather than attempt to co-exist. Without Federation ideals, Odo might not have offered to cure the great link in exchange for ending the war. So the Dominion also owes its survival to the Federation.
And the temporal agents recruiting 23rd century Federation captains? They are agents of the Alliance from the future, doing what is needed to preserve history to make sure that the Alliance forms as it should. And this point in time is where that formation occurs, beginning with UFP/KDF/NRR/JH cooperation.
So yeah... It is now accurate to say that we are all participating in activities as part of the Alliance. And rolling A UFP toon is in effect rolling an Alliance toon with a Federation origin story...
When it comes to MMOs, I wear prescription glasses. Whether or not they are rose-tinted is beside the point.
