Time to leave I guess.
This is pretty much what I expected to happen when I first heard about "provisioning."

That said, this is better than it could have been. They could have forced the fleet to decide which ships are buy-able AHEAD OF TIME. So instead of provisioning for 5 ships, they could end up provisioning 5 Fleet Defiants. Which means, of course, if you're #6 to the Defiant line, you may have a loooong wait, and if you want an obscure ship you may be out of luck period.

Not that I'm "for" the current provisioning scheme, mind you.
