It was not until CO was close to the 500 day mark till people new what the reward was. In CO it was an inventory bag, I am not sure what it will be in this game but I am pretty sure it want be anything from the c-store.
Isn't that the ship with the funny rings in the back, that looks like it was put together with spare bits of plastic and plumbing parts? If so, I have to disagree - the only way I'd want to see that thing is as target practice.
The 500 day reward ought to be one of several small things....
a] One opposing faction costume piece [Klingon sashes would look pretty bad-ass on a Terran Empire costurmes...]
b] Opposing faction pet [btw, where are the dogs /cats for the humans in StarFleet?]
c] A trophy for your ship's lounge /Captain's Office
d] A purple level tribble usable by all races /factions
e] Ok, this is my favorite, so I'm biased... EARLY ACCESS TO ROMULAN FACTION CONTENT! [I can dream, can't I? ]
All the other 'been-there-done-that' rewards have had comparatively small in-game effects, and I think this should too.
