As botheyak said you can get FSMs on the exchange, I got my Fleet Vorcha for 16 million by being patient.

Indeed.

Lockbox ship > available on the exchange



When I did the math, I realized it would cost me something like 25 million ECs to purchase the Intrepid + FSM to have the fleet Intrepid - I bought the Wells class when it hit rock bottom for 35 million instead. The Vesta 3 pack would be in the 50 to 60 million EC range (just eyeballing it).




At the OP:


The only Fleet Ship I own is the Fleet Vor'cha, I was hopeful for the Fleet Defiant but they decided to be hilarious and give the uni ensign to the Fleet Patrol Escort instead of the iconic Defiant from canon.

I might get the Fleet HEC, but it's quite a bit away.
