what they said is you use dilithium to buy people's c-store points in a type of exchange/auction house in game then use those c-store points to buy the ship in the store. so assuming it works ok, you can still get them for dilithium, there is just another step in the process.
vice admiral ships are also c-store ships. at the moment when we hit VA we get a token for one. now i have no idea if that token will remain. i hope and assume it will be that i dont know.
Because everyone is going to want to trade CPoints for Dilithium.
Especially when C-Points will buy you ships at every tier and thus allow you to attain large lump sums of Refined Dilithium at every rank (by saving on ship purchasing fees) without having to auction those CPoints. Oh, and of course the best rewards are going to offered for STF Salvage and not Dilithium anyway.
To be frank, I don't see Dilithium being worth a damn under the current system. It's going to be CPoints all the way, resulting in
exchange rates. And we're looking at Dilithium being time-gated so you can only refine a certain amount per-day, so good luck trying to get ahead that way.
