Getting something back for decommissioning ships?
 
What's the point in keeping ships used previously? Nostalgia?

And if you decommission them you get nothing and you lose whatever equipment you happened to leave onboard when you clicked that little button.

I think we should get something back when we decommission a ship that has outlived its usefulness or at least gain the ability to trade it to someone else. Perhaps a friend in the same fleet as you who isn't happy with the free ship he got with his promotion and would like a different one but for whatever reason is finding it impossible to get the credits to buy a new ship.

Or we should get a percentage of credits back in our pockets when its decommissioned. When I was promoted to Lt. Commander I went and used my free ship token to get an explorer class vessel and then paid for a science and escort class to see how they were. I ended up sticking with the escort and haven't touched the other two. They're both sitting there with absolutely no equipment (I sold what I wasn't using).

At the very least we should get a model or something we can put in our fleet banks until we have a customizable ship interior to make our own. In Picard's ready room on the Enterprise-D (can't remember if he had it on the E) he had a model of the Stargazer. It would be a nice touch if we could have models of all of the ships that we used in the game for nostalgia purposes.

Anyone else have any ideas or agree with me on this?

You can brag to the chicks in the bar about how many starships you own.

Well, you get a free ship from time to time upon promotion. So its not like it cost you much.

Although Im not sure of the point of keeping the old ones. It would be great if there was a point besides nostalgia.

I suppose they could give the option to sell them on the exchange maybe. That might work, although Im not sure thats needed either.

*shrugs*

Seriously though, it would be nice to get back some of the energy you spent on the extra ships.

There have been a lot of people asking to make them upgradable to the higher tiers.

This is what I want. Being able to refit older styles and give them more power. When I bought this game I wanted a refit Enterprise and a defiant. Had to leave the connie behind, but as an Admiral, I want to be able to use them.

Pay to add more hull, more weapons hardpoints, more crew stations. It fits Canon, since Riker refit the 1701-D with another nacelle and a giant gun. Janeway refit the Voyager with the borg tech.

If they don't want to create a system, just allow us to re-skin the admiral level ships to look like any other. We don't go by visual ID on ships, it says what class they are when we target them. All you'd have to do is say "Refit" before the class in the descriptor, and you'll know it isn't just a lower-tier ship.

I so agree with that I bought the game when first released quick cause of bugs and am now back in the game but I'm really not getting the ships that I want

Actually I just discharged my Miranda and well on my new toon, and even if they gave me nothing for that piece of junk, I am happy.

[In a flash he unholsters the [Zombie Control Rifle of Epicosity Mk XIV] and ZAPS the Zombie thread!]

This thread was raised from the dead (after no posts for 30 days or more) and it had to be put down...

Please remember that you're more than welcome to start a new thread on the topic! :)

Cheers,
