No Warpcore for Feds via Replay
 
I think this needs to be addressed. Since Warpcores have become an essential part of itemization and used for Sector Space travel it puts Federation players into an unfair and disadvantaged position.

Klingons get a Warpcore as a mission reward, Romulans get many Singularity Cores and there is not a single one available for the Federation players.

Chiming in, I was disappointed to see no Warp Core that was at least on par with the Klingon one. I like the Transwarp cooldown the KDF one gives and was hoping to find a similar one on the Federation side.

Nope. Not one there.

I'd be more tempted to run a Fed-only mission and KDF-only mission that both awarded these cores rather than playing the same KDF mission twice and trading one. (And I actually don't know if we're able to trade them. If not, then the Federation really did get the bad end of that stick on Warp Cores.)

Interesting. I hadn't even noticed this.

and I love the one they gave us... a white MKX one (depending on rank).... what does it do... not a thing.

It makes a great cup holder. My CD tray is so happy now.

You get a green MK XI one by doing the Nimbus III missions.

Other than that, you can buy one from the dil store and eventually exchange.

Congrats, your a FED player. You've been at an advantage since the beggining. The odds have just been evened. >:D

...

Now, being more serious, there will be ways to get Warp Cores... specifically, Crafting and the Dilithium Store will be core sources.

My point is that new players will have no way to get a "starter" Warpcore, while all other factions do get one.
There is so much crap loot attached to the missions - especially for FEDs that the reward tables could be revised with better and more meaningful items.?

...You do realize that your ship will start with a Warp Core, right? Like, a standard-issue one. It should suffice until you can afford a better one.

That, again, is the OP's point. Roms and KDF will upgrade their warp cores as they go, while new Fed players will be stuck with basically the common Core that comes with each ship.

What if you were stuck with the white standard shields that came with your ship for ten levels, no quest rewards to upgrade with, and a very low drop rate that the Warp Cores appear to have?
