Vice Admiral Ship
OK I looked at the level chart to see what goodies I'll get in the next few levels and I decided to go through the entire thing and noticed that level Vice Admiral level 51 gives you a new ship. Does that mean my previous ship will be obsolete/weaker. I only ask because I plan on buying the Dreadnought my personal favorite from the show and I'd be sad for it to suddenly be less impressive once I cap myself and also when they raise the level cap and have tier six ships. The level cap is far away though so lets focus on the other part of the question.

I've seen plenty of VAs with Dreadnoughts, my friend, so no need to worry - you can fly her if you want to. Getting the new ship at VA just gives you another choice of what to fly around in.

Cool now the only thing I have to worry about is when they have Tier 6 ships but thats far off so yeah for now.

You don't have to worry. The RA and VA ships are all on the same footing when it comes to stats and layouts.

The Star Cruiser is an RA usable ship and remains the ship of choice for Engineer Healers at VA for example.

Well the free VA1 ships are all refit versions. They have one special skill but most of them are weaker as the normal RA ships.

Cruiser: Galaxy Class retrofit
Special skill: Saucer seperation

Science: Intrepid Clas retrofit
Special Skill: The armor from the Voyager final "Endgame"

Escort: Defiant Class retrofit
Special Skill: cloaking device

As an Engineer I prefer the RA Assault cruiser. This ship has more weapon slots and better BO slots than the Galaxy retrofit. Also the saucer seperation looks nice but is useless in PvP. There you become an easy target.

how do I get vice admiral ships?
how do I get vice admiral ships? now that I am a vice admiral when I went to visit Adm. Quinn I did not get to buy a new ship although it says under the ranks permission to buy next rank of ship? The problem is I cannot do that it will not let me. Is this a free get ship purchase or do I have to buy one now with cryptic points? I would appreciate a quick response this is frustrating me. :confused:

Thanks in advance.

The free VA ship is a vet reward. Unless you area a 500 (iirc) day vet, you cannot simply get a token for one of those 3 ships.

Agreed. Many folks stick with their fleet escorts and other free lvl 5 ships without issue.

Yeah. :( I really hope that Tier six ships never happen-that the ship tier would just stay tier five.

I think they plan on introducing ship upgrades in season 6. So in theory it may become possible to upgrade tier 5 ships to be tier 6.

I also don't want my recently bought tier 5 ships to become irrelevant over night!
