Ship console slots and weapon slots
 
How about selling extra console slots or weapon slots in the c-store?

C-store purchases that give a significant advantage to gameplay are not going to happen. We pay to get features we want not pay to win and buying extra console and weapon slots is pay to win.

Yeeeeeah... like the bridge officer and captain species with unique powers, the console sold with the Oberth that boosts any ship... No advantage-selling at all :rolleyes:

Eh, unlikely to happen unless it somehow becomes tied into the mentioned ship building/crafting system at Starbases mentioned for next season in the Engineering reports (which will be next year sometime if I recall correctly).

Minor advantages are acceptable, but having 15 weapons and 8 of each console is not a minor advantage. Besides we can always find a free substitution for Bridge Officers and consoles. There is no advantage of playing a Ferengi or Caitian over a Vulcan or Human.

Once you've reached the top admiral rank is there anything left win? why not be able to buy an extra science console or weapon slot at that point?

As long as buying console slots and weapon slots are through ingame currency and is balanced, then it is acceptable. There has to be some limit to how many you can buy.

I am personally waiting for the duty officer system since maxing out a few of the commendation categories will take time.

slots
 
I'd like to be able to buy an extra ensign position or lt cmdr position or something on that order as well

Um, how about a big, fat "NO"? It would create way too much of an imbalance to allow you to add more weapons, consoles, and bridge seats to the C-Store. The BOff slots are pushing it already.
