# 1 Custom Starship
08-29-2013, 11:32 AM
So I got my hands on a small fortune recently, and I clearly remember Dan Stahl stating in one of the interviews from one of the podcasts, that if a player paid the devs a thousand dollars, they'd make that player their own ship. We'll I happen to have a thousand dollars sitting on the shelf...Who do I contact to make such arrangements? Branflakes, help me out here, go talk to them for me. I got a serious offer and you know I will pay for what I want!

First you need to find and link to the exact quote so that you have proof such a thing was actually said. Then you have room to wheel-and-deal.
STO is about my Liberated Borg Federation Captain with his Breen 1st Officer, Jem'Hadar Tactical Officer, Liberated Borg Engineering Officer, Android Ops Officer, Photonic Science Officer, Gorn Science Officer, and Reman Medical Officer jumping into their Jem'Hadar Carrier and flying off to do missions for the new Romulan Empire. But for some players allowing a T5 Connie to be used breaks the canon in the game.

Well Dan might remember saying it. Even if he doesnt, I just want a romulan scimitar for my fed character, and maybe some unique title. ive spent over 21K on the game so far, looking at digital recipes from atari, pwe, from the preorder retail boxes, to the RAF promo, life sub, and a respec a day almost. I could have a car but instead I have STO so I mise well make something more of it. oh i forgot, i got every c ship and lockbox ship too, and its getting really hard to keep them all with only 30/35 ship slots cap.

wholy fk'n shiiioot.... if you are serious about spending $21k on a game. You are either committed to STO with zero "real" lifetime overhead (that's unless your rich), and/or have a gaming addiction. Being a Lifetime subber myself, me spending $50 a month I thought was whack (that's what my wife tells me). Glad to know there's someone even more whack than I!

So... you've spent as much on this game as I make in a YEAR working my tail off...? That's kind of... I don't know how to express how that makes me feel...
Once, I was simply called Mojo. Now, I'm forced into a new name, but don't be fooled, I'm the original STO Mojo!

I'm sure that they would, however I think they'd have to be sensible about it.

That's unrealistic. If you truly want a Scimitar with a Federation character, create a Romulan, ally them with the Federation and then buy your Scimitar.

I seriously doubt that they'd allow a Federation character the use of a Republic ship. There are reasons the Romulan faction exists. When they said "we'll create you any ship you want" I would expect they'd have had limitations. Whatever ship this be would first have to pass CBS, and knowing how strict they are, they'd laugh at your proposal.

If you've got the money, and Cryptic are game, then great, but you'd be best off sticking with a Federation ship if you're wanting this for a Federation character.

Edit: 21k on this game is insane! Just what have you bought? You've either got everything (and extras) or have been seriously unlucky with lock boxes.

Personally I don't see the point in the factions considering the way the games set up, everyone can use most any ship. What I mean is obvious, feds, kdf, and romulan players using jem hadar, cardassian, breen, ferengi and now tholian and elachi ships, and romulan republic players using romulan star empire ships, next we'll probably see everyone flying borg cubes and spheres.

As far as CBS approving or not approving a ship I think that's a load of crap because if they cared what ship anyone used they'd never have approved such a sloppy mix and match for the factions. They just want a piece of the money just like Cryptic does so as long as they see dollar signs in their eyes, I think they'd approve anything.
