This might be just a guess, but, it is, after all, a Federation shuttle. I don't think there is a Klingon version of it.
There is absolutely NO disclaimer saying you can't have it Klingon side, so that's not a valid point at all. Especially when the cup in question had a Warbird on it.
We're teaming up with the folks at Del Taco to give away a special, in-game shuttle pet. If you visit a participating Del Taco and order a Macho soda, you'll receive a code, which you can redeem for a free Type-8 shuttle in-game.]
Don't see a word about it being faction restricted, therefore the promotion implies it's available to any character on the account, regardless of the fact that it's a type-8.
Ok here is the deal. You one can only get one shuttle per account, not muti shuttles on one account. Doesn't matter how many codes you have.
Incorrect. Each of my Federation characters has the shuttle. You may have one per character, not one per account. However, there is a known bug that will keep you from claiming it on some characters, regardless of faction, and requires GM assistance.
