I'll very likely be bumping my Defiant, because it will only cost me the one. But my 'Old Fleet' escort isn't getting an extra $20 console slot, and my Sci toon's RSV is probably not getting an extra $20 Tac console slot.

Why even have shipyard tiers if everything costs the same? There's a tiered shipyard, there ought to be tiered pricing, as well. The ships that don't require modules all cost $200,000 FC. The ones that do all cost 4 modules and $200,000 FC, with the only discount given if you've already paid them $20 for a 5+1 VA ship. And they are all per-character unlocks.

Not exactly tempting me to spend money here, PWE. Some cities have a Dollar Store. You apparently have a $20 Store. I'd appreciate it at this point if you stopped using the term 'micro transaction' in any of your official literature, since you've apparently been rolling in the Benjamins so long that you've forgotten what it means.
the fleet ship price really is indefensible, the cookie cuter station setups, some ships being laughably bad wile other hilariously overpowered, its a mess that looks full of place holders.

only 2 ships interest me in the fleet system, the fleet ktinga and fleet vorcha. the standard vorcha was the best cruiser imo, at could do everything a federation cruiser could do, wile turning 3 to 4 points beter, and being able to equip and use effectively escort weapons with 2 turn consoles. the ktinga is the vorcha turned up to 11, literally and figuratively. its got an 11 turn rate, and an effective shield mod of 1.07. whoever loves flying the vorcha R will love the F ktinga.

the fleet vorcha is the funnest thing to fly in game imo. theres just enough cruiser to go with a whole bunch of escort all in 1 package to have the best qualities of each. both i have purchased and am very satisfied with, regardless of price, they are a ton of fun to use. the price is still indefensible, per character.

in case anyone was wondering, the non fleet somraw retrofit has a .8 shield mod. with the eng ENS, the 16 turn rate, the compactness and the pivot point being fine... id rather use it then a stranded qin. oh its still worse then a fed escort sure, but some of the more innate problems with the qin arent a problem with the somraw.
