Why is the Tac Odyssey the worst of the three? I wouldn’t know what to do with an extra sci console (though I could use the workbees and the other stuff mentioned), and I’ve heard the eng odyssey’s saucer separation, and saucer separation in general, is a bad idea for use in STF’s and PVP.

Plus, I could always use the Dragon Flagship build on the Tac Odyssey.

Eh, I wanted something better than the danube so I wouldn't continually die during shuttle missions (unless dying is just normal overall in STO). Plus, the KDF has a limited selection of shuttles, and it seemed the To'Duj was the only good one.

They pay for themselves in short order, and with 4 characters I pull 100 c-points a day.
…Maybe. It would shorten the time to get 2000 CP. I would prioritize the respect tokens first though, so I could fix my existing characters before I get new ones.

I honestly don’t know what I’d even get with more than 10m EC. All of the Anti-Proton stuff is less than 10m EC on the exchange. I guess I could save up for a Galor, Marauder, or a Jem’Hadar ship, but I’m not quite as interested in those. (Though the Jem Bug looks like an escort on steroids).

I won’t be able to get the special edition right away due to some intense expenses this month, but I’ll think about it.
