You buy them at the ship vendor (same NPC you get the free ones at) for ENERGY CREDITS, not RL money. 68000 for a t2 ship, goes up from there.

Don,t spend any money now. Wait until they get a decent amount of stuff in then see if there is anything you really really must have. I don't mind mini-transactions in F2P games but I will never do them in subscription one no matter what, s for sale.

I think you might have misunderstood my question, I wasn't asking about buying ships; as I stated earlier, I have bought an escort to compliment my free cruiser at every tier so far...

I was actually asking about buying cryptic points, do they require a real cash transaction or in-game currency of some form?

Cryptic points are bought with real money.

If you go to the front page of the official site (http://www.startrekonline.com/) and click the My Account link in the top-right, you'll see your current point balance and a link that allows you to buy more.

(Note that clicking the My Account link in the top-right of any forum page takes you to your forum account details - you need to be on the main site, not the forums, to get to the right account screen.)

At the moment, there aren't many things you can buy with Cryptic Points, but the options are likely to expand over time.

Good deal, thank you... I'll be keeping my eyes on the c-store, I guess they're expanding here pretty soon....
