Cryptic themselves said that many KDF ships put up on the C-Store just weren't profitable, which is why they don't make a lot of them. Maybe some are, but it's clearly not worth their time compared to Federation ships. That's just the way it is.
You may see a lot of those things, but that doesn't mean people are buying those things in droves. Keep in mind that your personal experience is not the same thing as hard facts. If KDF players were buying a lot of C-Store KDF ships, then Cryptic would make more.
How do you know? We know Federation ships make money, we know 3-packs make money, and we know Escorts make money. It would be foolish of Cryptic not to make an escort 3-pack, because of how much money it would make. We all hope they'll take their time with it so that escort has a great design and doesn't break the game, but it's coming eventually.
On top of that, your cited examples of what KDF players buy included two examples of unique equipment -- a console and a weapon. You keep harping on about how there are ships out there already that fill a niche, but forget how awesome unique weapons and console powers can be. They would still make those escorts unique even if they did perform similarly to other escorts.
Anyway, stop bringing up the KDF. If you want to talk about KDF, go to their forums. I'm just going to mentally white out every sentence that has "KDF" in it from now on, because, for one last time,
I do not care about the KDF
Ok now I am pretty sure you're being an ***hole on purpose. And I can respect that since I honestly don't care. But I will simply state what I have been saying this whole time. There are no gaps in the escort line-up. They closed the last of those gaps with the Steamrunner. And ffs, there is an escort with carrier pets. We don't need more escorts. The ship line-up for the feds is fine.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.
