What happened to previous Legacy packs/DLC?

I'm assuming that after four years of being around this isn't the first Legacy pack/DLC that the game has had so I expected Steam to be full of old packs on offer but it doesn't list anything that seems to be old.

Did you not have Klingon/Cardassian/Terran etc legacy packs or are the packs strictly time limited and after a set time they are discontinued and the contents move into the C-store?

Nope, there aren't any others. LoR is the first expansion STO has had.

Heh, yeah. Let's just say that STO has had an...interesting past.

The very, very short version of it is that the game suffered greatly under Cryptic's old owners, Atari. Atari didn't understand MMOs at all and didn't let Cryptic develop the game properly after it's release. It wasn't until Cryptic was bought by PWE that the game really took off. It was...pretty brutal there in the beginning.

# 686 Question about ships
02-11-2014, 04:44 AM
Hey!

Sorry if a made my reply at the wrong place but I have to ask, can I play with an unlocked federation ship if I unlock this ship with my romulan character on the same account but with a different [fed] character? Example: My VA federation character has a free token star cruiser, is the assault cruiser will available to play with? Or is this only working with the C store ships?

Thanks

This is the wrong place but I'll try and answer.

The tokens you receive from levelling up are character-specific. Whatever you claim on one character doesn't carry over to another.

Also specific to your case are two other things:

1) Romulans cannot claim any Federation (or KDF) ships using tokens while levelling up. All they can do are use non-T5 (read: before level 40) Fed C-Store ships, or buy the non C-Store ships with dilithium. For level 40 and above, Romulans can only use Romulan faction or purple boxed ships.

2) Nowadays we have an abundance of cheap T5 Mirror Ships available to all 3 factions, making your level 40 free ship choice pretty inconsequential. If you aren't happy with your choice, look in the exchange for a mirror ship which suits you better. In the Star Cruiser/Assault Cruiser case, the Mirror Star and Mirror Assault emulate their counterparts exactly, with only a ship model and crew amount change. For the KDF and Republic, layouts change slightly on mirror versions.
