Questions on specific "Veteran's Reward"
 
Specifically, the "free VA ship token" one.

1. Is the token one per toon, or is it one per account?
2. Are all VA-level ships available via this token, or only the ones that were released back when the token was released?
3. Is it "retroactive" for all existing toons as well as all future toons, or does only a handful of toons get it?

Reason I ask: I'm eyeballing a handful of C-store ships for my account of 6 active (at this writing) toons. Specifically, the Atrox (for a sci), better cruiser for my engie (getting him out of the meek Gal-X I tried out for him), and my 2 Klingons. I'm not too terribly concerned that the VA tokens might be "character bound", as I rarely "cross-class" my characters - so missing out the ability for my Sci to jump into the Engie's "free Regent" isn't high on my list of worries, I rarely slot my Sci or engie in the Armitage I already own for this very reason...

So, if I were to go LTS instead of buying all this on the C-store, I've already "covered" $100 of the $200 sale price. Add in the token I'd get for my Sci that's in love with his Recluse, the Tac that loves her Armitage, the 2 character slots from the VR program, and C-store boats for them, and suddenly I'm up to $206.25 in spending. Figuring that one of those 2 "new" characters will be a liberated borg (another $6 in C-store value) and the BOffs/pets/yacht/costumes/costume slots/ship slots/etc. and suddenly coming up with the scratch for an LTS is cheaper than piecemealing all this together...

1. One per character (if you happen to have a character from before F2P and they got their VA token, you can't get a second).
2. From the FAQ: "For Federation characters, this token can be used to claim an Exploration Cruiser Retrofit, Long Range Science Vessel Retrofit, or Tactical Escort Retrofit. For Klingon characters, this token can be used to claim a B'rel Bird-of-Prey Retrofit, Varanus Fleet Support Vessel, Marauder Patrol Cruiser, or Kar'Fi Battle Carrier."
3. It's supposed to be retroactive, but I've had trouble getting it on several characters that were already VA. Not all of them, though, and not for any discernible reason.

Thanks for the answer...

Now to debate... that restriction to TNG-only models Fed-side for the token puts a big damper on my plans...

well, would it be fair if you could claim a ship for free that was never available for free like the retrofits where?

This is an issue I just posted a ticket about.

It's odd. Some characters got the token and some VA characters did not. Now I'm worried about the upcoming VA's getting theirs too.

Did this get resolved for you?

Make sure you have completed your promotion mission, the talk to J'mpoc/Adm. Quinn stuff. I had a KDF who was a VA but had no VA token, I forgot to talk to J'mpoc to get it.
