Sadly correct .
This has to stop because if it doesn't, Cryptic will very soon run out of ships that they can exploit.
Ah , but we're nearly there , both on the Fed side and the KDF .
So very soon we will start looking at a new combination , one which will consist of 'other factions' and (hold on to your seats) -- Cryptic originals .
If we look at Gecko's answer to "Cryptic originals" , this means 2409 versions of a Defiant , MVAM , others .
To some this will look as buying the same ship again .
Others will see it as "new pretty , moar power , woohoo !" .
At any rate , we're coming to a cross road where 'classic' ships -- the main income of Cryptic , are exhausted .
I'm curious to see their reaction ... and the c-store/lockbox market's reaction to their reaction .
STO will be out of Beta in another 2-4 years ???
... you know after another 3 story arc remasters, crafting revamp, skills revamp, PVP upgrade ...
*note : the 2-4 year guesstimate came out of comparing Cryptic's Dev speed and that of a snail . Sadly the snail won .
