Pre-Order Item pack
Back in the days of Stahl's peak there were whispers of the pre-order items being sold as a C-Store packs in the engineering reports if I remember correctly.

Now I would absolutely love this to be released, any word on the progress or possibilities of this package being released to us.

Also if anyone can find which engineering report is was that would be great, I checked through and couldn't see if but in my defence I'm flued up to the eyeballs, but still trying.

They need to make sure they do not have a contract with the company that is carrying the pre-order items. Once that is cleard they would be allowed to post them in the C-Store.

Yeah the Target one being the main one, thats really the only bit i want the TR-116a

Once the new weapons come out, the TR-116 will be completely obsolete. All the [Borg] weapons, and the new STF reward weapons, have built-in kinetic damage that is better than the TR-116.

I agree with you Cuatela, but the TR looks so much cooler than any other Fed weapon.

These days I find it funny that I did not get my TR-116 from Target.
How do I know it wasn't from target you didn't ask? I'm in Sweden.

I got the new [borg] weapons on Tribble and they cool, but I would like the gun for low levels when finding a decent weapons isn't that easy and also for the cool looking side of it lol.

Was wondering if we'd get any kind of dev response more than anything.

Oh well.

Supposedly, and this is a rumor, not confirmed fact, the pre-order agreements were made by Atari with the individual retailers, meaning that Atari would have to participate in breaking off those agreements.

EDIT: again, supposedly this is why the liberated borg engineer isn't in the C-Store on tribble (among other things).

Under Atari managment, Cryptic probably could have gotten a pack to market with all the preorder goodies, but under PWI, that's much less likely, if any of this is actually true.

I hate to relay unconfirmed rumors, but, there you go.

I wonder what effect the free to play transition will have on those agreements. They could change with no product to sell.

If they can't sell the original versions, they could always make something similar. If F2P is going to be a success they'll be releasing a lot of packages, they may introduce the complete DS9 pack containing various weapons that only appeared on DS9 like the TR-116, a Bajorian phaser, the Dominion bladed weapon (can't remember the name) and a few other things like the type 10 shuttle from the Defiant.

That would open up so make other packages as well for Ent, TMP, TNG, VOY (if we must but i did like the type 9 aerodynamic shuttles)

But that's me thinking out load, and my flame suit is engaged just in case.

Any other ideas people?
