Think I'll stick with my Tholian one, but those Klingon one's look amazing. I'm betting I'm going to see a few getting around the promenade on DS9. Thanks for the read.

700 Zen for a per-character unlock? Ugh.

I guess the ability to trade it makes that a little better, but the high starting price is going to limit supply moreso than if it had been 500Z or something.

Is this correct or a typo (refers to Bold items)?

Environmental Protection
Reaction Thrusters
+30.5 Physical Damage Resistance
+30.5 Kinetic Damage Resistance
+5% Energy Damage
+5.1 Energy Damage Resistance
+15.2 Radiation Damage Resistance
+30.5 Energy Damage Resistance
+30.5 Radiation Damage Resistance
+30.5 Toxic Damage Resistance
+15.2 Fire Damage Resistance
+15.2 Cold Resistance


So is it +45.7 to Radiation Damage Resistence or a Typo?

7 bucks? Per toon? How many suits do you get?

It would be insane to expect me to pay 7 bucks pert Boff I'd want to outfit them with.

"Note: This item is a Character unlock that can be traded or sold on the Exchange. If you discard, sell, trade or use a Federation Combat Environmental Suit, you will NOT be able to claim a free replacement from the C-Store."

What kind of *blam* is this? Pay Real money for something you can't Claim again? No thanks.

Whoever thought a 7 buck per character unlock was a good idea was very mistaken. At per character it needs to be much cheaper. Its already more than twice the price of other per-character unlocks like the Melee weapon pack and tribbles.

Yeah, that does seem s a bit steep. Then again, they're making up for the lack of monthly subs, and one person buying this even twice just about covers their monthly sub cost (2 x $7).

Looks nice but character unlock only.... Nah.

Really?
So in order for us to wear the same thing our NPCs beam down with we have to pay 700 zen for an item that's per character which makes the 3 set bonus of your newly added Tholian ground set null and void?

These should have been the skins for the suit in the first place!, not those ugly janitor closet boiler suits we we lumped with,

I'm sorry but am I the only one who feels this is incredibly stupid, having to pay for something that would naturally come with a starship,
Lets just hope PWE never starts selling cruises, Ships sinking!
"Oh Lifeboat, Dat cost extra"
"LifeJacket? dat cost more extra"
"Ohh Rescue?, Yeah dat cost extra"
