Thanks for that, good read. Though I was sort of hoping there would be metion of the Galaxy-X and the like.

Nice summary.

Now it's official, new c-store or fleet ships are far better than free ones. This is a major change in STO. Why did it happen? Isn't the game supposed to be free to play instead of pay to win?

I'd still like to know what is going on with the disappearance of the fleet Sovereign.

As would I...

I expected I'd never see a T5 version of my favorite Constitution class ship... but was it really necessary to also axe any improvement to the Sovereign too?

Why does the dev team hate my favorite ships!

A Fleet Galaxy Dreadnought Retrofit, with saucer separation and some other goodies would be nice. What ever happened to the Galaxy C-Store Bundle?

IIRC, there was a problem with the coding in the system that was not exactly a trivial thing to fix. The Galaxy bundle would have had the Tier 4.5 Venture Refit, the T5 Galaxy Retrofit, and the Galaxy Dreadnought. However, if you had bought any one of these vessels before you would be unable to claim the bundle. I don't work for Cryptic, so I don't know the exact coding infrastructure -- but while it would appear easy to fix on paper, we were told it was shelved until the systems guys could fix it accurately... and time was better spent working on other broken systems in the game.

As reported earlier, there is a bug that won't let you do *any* customization of the fleet ship unless you bought the lower tier version (and by any customization I mean change windows, colors, bridge, not the ship skin).

Thanks for taking the times to write a comprehensive explanation about this. We should see more detailed posts like this. It would be nice to also have another detailed post about Fleet Starbases (expansion on the pre s6 teaser) in much more detail.

Funny seeing the people complaining about the size of the post. Normally we see complaints that there is not enough information, or things are not explained enough in detail. I suppose you can't please everyone

What my subject line said... I can understand not having a Tier 5 TOS constitution, but what about the refit? And the other two models that came with it?
