Question about C-Store bought stuff
Alright, I know this has probably been asked a million times, but I'm highly curious since I can't seem to find it. Now, I know that certain ships are retainable throughout all toons on an account, as are clothes. But, to what extent? Say, like, I buy the Exeter-class on one toon and I want to start another Federation character. Would I have to buy the Exeter again to have it on that account?

Again, it's a silly question and it's probably been asked a million times, but I'm curious.

ships are account wide based on yes, if you bought the exeter you can use it on a fed toon...once it has reached the level that it can use it. Romulans can use allied ships up to t4 (level 30) of the faction they chose to ally with

but yes, nearly all of the C-store purchases are account bound (idk which ones are not though)

In general, any purchase that is one-time instead of an unlock (not counting slot upgrades) is unbound. Keys, modules, pets, some boffs, doff packs, etc. Many of these come in boxes that are not bound, but if opened the item may be, similar to lobi and lockbox items.

When it comes to C-Store ships, as it's been mentioned already, they are generally Account Bound. So any C-Store ship can be claimed by any Character, so long as they meet Level and Faction requirements (i.e. No Rommie can claim their Ally's T5 Ships).

The lone exception to the above comes with the 600-day, I believe, Vet Reward. That allows you to claim one of several select T5 Ships. In the FED's case they are the Retrofits of the Tactical Escort (Defiant), Exploration Cruiser (Galaxy), and Long Range Science Vessel (Intrepid). The use of the Vet reward is a one-shot, you use it, that's it.

Hope that helps.

Thank you for the time...

Services are mostly single character unlocks with the exception of Account Shared Bank Slots, Two and Four Character slots, and the Energy Credit cap increase.

Duty Officers are unlocked for one character only.


Ships, Costumes, and Vanity Pets come in boxes that can be traded to any character including someone else's.

Devices are mixed some items come in boxes and other don't.

Ground Gear items with the exception of the Jem Hadar Set and Firing Mechanism are not account wide unlocks.

2 quick newbie questions from reading this thread:

- Do I need a key for each box or do you buy various keys and retain then for multiple boxes?
- I assume Romulans have their own T5 ships...

Every single box needs its own key, once used its gone. Yes rommies get their own t5 ships ( really good as well ).
