Been out a while; quick Q on Fleet Ships
Hi all,

For purchasing a ship that is a fleet type/refit, am I only needing 1 fleet module to get it? That is, buying 1 fleet module off the exchange or through the zen store?

When I read the descriptions in-game, it talks about having access to a starbase shipyard, etc. which I do not have because I'm not in a fleet.

Anyway, I would like to clarify since I'm thinking about just getting the fleet module to get the fleet defiant.

Thanks for any help.

If you have a tier 5 ship purchased from the C-store, then you only need 1 fleet module to get the Fleet version of it.

The Heavy Escort Carrier, for example. If you own the C-store version of the ship, you can get the Fleet version of the ship (provided your fleet has a shipyard at the correct tier) for the required fleet currency and 1 Fleet Module.

Any other ship, that you don't have the c-store variant of, will require 4 fleet modules.

You need to be in a fleet with a starbase/shipyard of a high enough tier, you need to have the required Fleet Credits (generated by activity within the fleet), you need to be high enough in the fleet to have access to their Provisioned Stores, and you have to have the correct number of Fleet Modules.

You need to be in a fleet in order to get any of the fleet ships. Once in a fleet, these ships cost 4 fleet modules plus a certain amount of fleet credits. However, if you have previously purchased a C-store version of the fleet ship you're wanting to buy, then the cost will be 1 fleet module plus a certain amount of fleet credits.

First and foremost though, you will have to be a member of a fleet in order to buy a fleet ship. And that fleet will have to have a shipyard of appropriate level for the ship you want. You will also need to be in a fleet to have accumulated the amount of fleet credits you'll require for the purchase. Fleet credits are obtained by contributing to fleet projects.

At the end of the day... you'll have to join a fleet and contribute to projects in order to accumulate the credits you need to buy a fleet ship... Then you'll have to buy Fleet modules from the C-store or Exchange.

I hope that helps. ;)

EDIT: If you're looking for a fun and active fleet to get you started, PM me ingame - @c0nd1t10nr3d . We have a fully stocked shipyard and we are extremely helpful to newer members! ;)

You should be careful though not to confuse Refits and Retrofits. Having a Refit from the C-Store won't get you the Fleet Module discount, but having a Retrofit will.

Example: The Tactical Escort (Defiant) has both a Refit (Sao Paolo) and Retrofit (commonly called the Defiant-R). Only the Defiant-R will net you that discount if you decide to get a Fleet Tactical Escort. Note that if you're a veteran member (or lifetimer), buying a Tactical Escort Retrofit with your free Vice Admiral Ship Token will NOT get you the Fleet Module discount.

I'm not sure if owning the Regent (Assault Cruiser Refit) will get you a discount for the newly added Fleet Assault Cruiser. I hope it does, though.

Also if you're not interested in joining a fleet, there are those that will sell you one. That is done by contributing dilithium or fleet marks to projects they are currently working on. This has the added benefit of earning you those credits which you need to purchase your ship. My fleet which has a tier 4 shipyard (the defiant you seek is tier 3) and has a surplus of ship provisions and my Fleet Admiral "@Latinumbar" would be more than happy to work out some sort of arrangement.

Here is a happy customer that purchased a few fleet defiants:

If you are interested put a request in the 44th's fleet thread. My Fleet Admiral checks it daily.
