  • 2409 combadge
  • KDF Bonus: New Sash
  • Bonus: Account-bound Fleet Module

And of course a KDF "Imperial Bundle"
  • Generic bridge themed after the Bortasqu' bridge
  • New shoulder pads (matches sash style from 2409 bundle)
  • FED Bonus: 2409 Belt (matches combadge)
  • Bonus: Account-bound Fleet Module

The main draw is the bridges, but the additions of the fleet module and the synergizing costume pieces adds draw. Ideally it would be priced relative to similar items so that the modules would effectively cost half what they normally do. Account binding the modules prevents selling them without shafting the buyer by binding it to the buying character.

I imagine in total these will individually run 1000 zen. So 2000 zen overall for "modern" bridges, matching accessories for both factions, and a whopping two account-bound fleet modules. Not bad considering the modules alone would normally run you 1000 for both...
Maybe it's just me, but a bridge and a some small stuff are hardly worth 1000 ZEN. I would make it something between 300 and 750 at most, because there is little playability in it (no ship, weapons or other stuff non RPers need to have). I can imagine that much less players would buy it if there is nothing they could use in Combat. That's not my opinion, i would bu that pack, but in my experience most players are just looking at the stats of a new piece of equipment, rather than its looks or meaning in Star Trek.

What i don't like about it is the fact that i would had to buy the KDF version of it just to get a matching Starfleet belt, i think thats a bit too much. Many players are just not interested in playing a KDF character.

I'm curious how does a 2409 combadge look like?

Thank you for reading.
