Think I'll stick with my Tholian one, but those Klingon one's look amazing. I'm betting I'm going to see a few getting around the promenade on DS9. Thanks for the read.

700 Zen for a per-character unlock? Ugh.

I guess the ability to trade it makes that a little better, but the high starting price is going to limit supply moreso than if it had been 500Z or something.

7 bucks? Per toon? How many suits do you get?

It would be insane to expect me to pay 7 bucks pert Boff I'd want to outfit them with.

"Note: This item is a Character unlock that can be traded or sold on the Exchange. If you discard, sell, trade or use a Federation Combat Environmental Suit, you will NOT be able to claim a free replacement from the C-Store."

What kind of *blam* is this? Pay Real money for something you can't Claim again? No thanks.

So in order for us to wear the same thing our NPCs beam down with we have to pay 700 zen for an item that's per character which makes the 3 set bonus of your newly added Tholian ground set null and void?

These should have been the skins for the suit in the first place!, not those ugly janitor closet boiler suits we we lumped with,

I'm sorry but am I the only one who feels this is incredibly stupid, having to pay for something that would naturally come with a starship,
Lets just hope PWE never starts selling cruises, Ships sinking!

I hope no one buys it. Maybe the price will go lower after they see Total First Day sales of $21.

WTF 700zen for a lousy outfit, where and how often we gonna use this as there is nothing to do with it except the one ground zone that a end gamer can solo mostly in few hours.

Per character too???????

WTF Cryptic wth is going on with you greedy sods.

  • Account wide unlock

Otherwise this is a piece of equipment, with seriously limited use.

Boycott this. I hope no one buys this, and it forces PWE and Cryptic to re-evaluate the nickel and diming they're doing to their "valued" customers.
