zen, keys and testing on tribble
first let me say that i haven't been on tribble in over 2 years, so perhaps the answer to this is simple and i'm just not seeing it...
i have about 2000 zen on holodeck. i finally decided to gear up my federation scientist for actual game play, instead of just using him to screw around and be retarded.
two of my favorite ships in trek are both sci ships, the relativity, and voyager, and i'm excited to finally fly one of them. however i have a problem with trying to test them.
first problem. i transferred my character to tribble, and went to go buy voyager from the c-store, however only 500 zen is showing up. i deleted and copied again, and saw the same thing, only 500 zen. i did notice that the transfer page said it could take 2 hours, and i did log in immediately after transferring. so maybe it just needs more time to copy everything over? but im positive that its my current character thats there because of other things on this character. i'm pretty sure everything else is there too, just not all my zen... do i need to convert to dilithium first, then copy character, the convert back to zen on tribble?
second problem. the relativity is of course, in a lockbox, so i need keys. however i dont see keys in the c-store. has it really been that long since tribble was updated? keys have been around a long time, and it was my understanding that tribble has everything that holodeck has, plus more that is being tested for the next patch. so where are the keys? i even checked the exchange, but there were none there. i can buy keys with either zen or credits, but i dont have enough credits to just buy the ship on the exchange (if there are any there), so i need keys. but if they're not in the c-store or the exchange, then where are they?
so, no one has ever used tribble to test ships prior to buying them?
As Far as I know, there are no keys on Tribble. But then again, I haven't seen a lockbox drop on Tribble in ages. So from that standpoint, it might be unnecessary to have them.
As for getting the Wells class on Tribble, since the unpacked boxes are not character bound, my suggestion is this.
Get the Wells Class on Holodeck (as a requisition box, do NOT unpack it), either via the exchange or lockbox, you probably would have better luck on the exchange if you have the credits. Then transfer whatever the character is over to Tribble. If you only want that character over, then that is great and you are basically done.
Assuming you have a tribble character already, or you want to start a new one (or whatever. Basically the character you are transfering isn't the character you want to play on Tribble), Place the requistion pack in your account bank. Then have whatever character it is you want to have the wells class take it out of the account bank. Now you should have your Wells Class.
As for the Voyager, The only thing I can say on that is, one of the veteran rewards was a VA ship token. I can't remember which one, but probably one of the higher ones.
Assuming you have been a Gold member for the whole time, You should be pretty close to 1000 days anyways (which is the max for vet rewards) so Check if you have that. If you do, I believe you can use that to claim the Intrepid Class Retrofit, so again there you go.
You won't get credit for purchasing it, So if you ever wanted a Fleet version (not sure there even is one, but I would imagine so) you would still have to have the max number of Fleet Modules, but otherwise it should be the same and get you want you want.
thanks for the suggestions. if i just take some time to raise a few million more ec, i can buy the wells, transfer to tribble, test... and if i dont like it, then i can still sell the unopened box.
still not sure why my zen isnt transferring though, but hopefully i'll be happy with the wells. though i'll be kicking myself if they ever release an intrepid bridge...
this may sound dumb to ship collectors though, they'd say just buy both. but i like to find a good ship and stay with it. been flying my defiant retro on my tac since almost the beginning.
