Essentially, a full refund for the item.

New Andorian Phasers with the correct Mark XI stats will be available on the Dilithium Store. These are identical to the prototype ones except that they can't be traded back in to the Ferengi Collector, since their stats properly reflect their mark now.

Finally, for those of you who want more powerful Andorian Phasers, we will still be putting Advanced Fleet Andorian Phasers on the Fleet store in the near future.

Thank you for your patience.

We're not expecting this to start a precedent; these weapons are intended to be a purely cosmetic change from existing Phasers. We're not intending to put upgraded versions of everything on the Fleet store at this time. It's always possible we might consider doing other cool Fleet stuff in the future, but this isn't intended to be any kind of sign of things to come.
Thank you for this option,
but since my fed fleet is down to essentially 1-3 members (since season 7 started) not counting my alts i shall hold onto them for now since i do like the FLAVOR and we are nowhere near enough to get advanced fleet weapons from the fleet star base. I imagine a lot of solo players maybe in the same boat.
just my personal opinion but going forward if the next new "SHINY" ship that people are gonna layout cash for could be double/triple/quadruple checked for errors before release these problems would not be problems.

Good Hunting all
