personally I think it needs to be earned on the merit system, or in the C-store. I have the choice to work at my business for the money, or I can work hard in the game to get the right to earn that ship. ( it should probably take close to a month to earn it in my opinion )

Well respecs are the place to go to figure out an exchange rate.

20 to 30k merits = 500 Cryptic Points.

Make it 25k, split the difference. So 50 merits = 1 Cryptic Point.

40,000 Merits = 1 TOS Constitution.

100,000 Merits = 1 Galaxy X.

The Excelsior and the Nebula can fall in between that.

no i aint missing the point , the point is the marketing staff got wiff that the players in this game bought huge ammount of galaxy x ships and now new ships gonna appare in the store that trekkies want , they could just as well make em skins that u can use on existing classes and stick to what they said it was gonna be a store with vanity items not a store for ppl with money to get an diffrent game experience for them that cant afford it ..

agreed that would work the best as an indicator of what the exchange rate should be. if the excelsior was to be 1,200 C-store points that would be 60,000 merits. that would take a good amount of time grind that much. ( and that is a good thing. )

I don't have a problem buying these from the C-store.

However, that is ONLY if all of my characters have access to it. Currently, I am pretty peeved that the ship skins I bought are usable by ALL of my RA characters, but the Galaxy-X that I paid $25 for can ONLY be used by my original character. That sucks. My original character is a tac officer. I am leveling an Engineer whom I think is better suited for the Galaxy X. He is currently a Capt 3. I wish I could remove the X from my tac RA5 and give it to the Eng when he reaches RA1. But, alas, I cannot as of yet.

So, I'll buy both of these if I can use them on any of my chars. But, if they are limited to just one character, I won't. It is that simple.

Yup. That's kind of what I am hoping they see. 60K merits is a bit of a grind. For sure. But it's the sweet spot between the TOS and the Galaxy X when using the respecs as the exchange rate lynchpin.

They're not gonna let you buy it with in-game credits. One, credits can't pay developers. Two, all MMOG's tend to suffer from rampant inflation so whatever price point they would establish (if point one weren't true) would keep decreasing in actual value over time.

That said, if Cryptic thinks anybody other than the most dedicated umm... fans are going to keep dropping $25 USD on ship skins without detailed and accurate interiors, then somebody isn't going to meet their projected numbers.

Uh...the Galaxy-X is usable by all of them. You just have to go claim it under 'Special Unlocks'. Well, all of your Fed toons at least.
