As for why you not longer get a free Retrofit ship at VA, there are 2 reasons:

1: It was made a Vet Reward token to try and entice people to buy a Gold membership.

2: Cryptic wants players to buy C-Store ships at VA so they can continue to make money and continue to produce the game.
have a few friends love to say hello

* Long Range Science Vessel retrofit; similar in appearance to the U.S.S. Voyager / Intrepid Class; it has Ablative generators (increased armor) though it can only fire torpedoes while that power is active.

* Exploration Cruiser retrofit; similar in appearance to the U.S.S. Enterprise D / Galaxy Class; it can perform the dramatic Saucer Separation which has been seen in movies and on television. This turns you into an escort with a saucer pet that fires phasers on your target.

* Tactical Escort retrofit of the Defiant Class; similar in appearance to the U.S.S. Defiant; it has cloaking capabilities for the utmost in stealth and punishing weaponry.
