I just hope they adjust pricing soon before my wife finds out how much I've spent on this game.
Ships did not come super-cheap before FTP. What makes you think they should come super-cheap now?

Before FTP every ship in the C-Store cost a Subscriber $10 - $25.00 on top of the Subscription fee. Since FTP each ship runs $5 - $25.00; plus you earn Zen that can give you additional discounts.

I'm not really seeing much of a price difference between now and a year ago. Plus you don't have to buy new ships. It's your choice if you want the fluff or not.
