So no, I'm not forgetting anything - FEDs have 10 Tier 5 Fleet refits (2 at each tier, not counting TBD Fleet Assault Cruiser), while KDF only get 4 (2 of which at way higher tiers).

Also, keep in mind, you get a discount for a Tier 5 Fleet vessel if you already own its equivalent from the C-Store (for example, if you own Tactical Escort Refit from the C-Store you pay only 1 Fleet Module instead of 4). Problem is, KDF have no such ship in the shipyard atm, so whatever you get, you need to pay the full 20$ price...

Up until now I tried to avoid the "zomg KDF are an afterthought!!11onemeh" discussions, but after seeing how Cryptic handled their Fleet ships in comparison to FED ones, I am honestly disappointed - ESPECIALLY with no C-Store content even being planned. The only "hope" is another lock box I guess...
You are the only person in this thread talking about Fleetbase ships. Everyone else is talking about direct C-Store items/ships - you know, those things we bought before the game introduced Fleetbases?

There are 30 Fed C-Store ships and 21 KDF C-Store ships. What there are in Fleetbases and what there might be in the future Fleetbases is meaningless to the discussion of more KDF things going into the C-Store.

Edit: And all of this is very-much off topic from the OP's purpose of the thread.
