# 1 Defiant Retrofit
12-20-2010, 11:41 AM
I have a dumb question. I havent been playing for a while and i came back on and recently leveled up to VA.

I ended up getting the Defiant Retrofit, just for the promotion.

If this can be earned so easily, why then is this ship available for cryptic points in the C store?

Not that I am complaining, I am very happy.

It's for those who chose another ship at the promotion and don't want to farm emblems.

Let's say you decided to pick the Galaxy Refit instead of the Defiant Refit with that token, but then decided you wanted the Defiant-R as well. You'd have to earn a lot of Emblems in-game in order to buy it. Or - you can buy it once in the C-Store and have it permanently unlocked for all your characters, freeing up that ship token for one of the 2 other Refit ships.

Are emblems like exploration badges? Can you only get them at Admiral?

Essentially, yes. They are the current top-end (Vice Admiral) grind currency, earned via daily missions. They can be traded in for Mk XI gear, or exchanged for RAdm Marks (see below) if there's a particular Mk X item (e.g. Covariant [cap x3] shield) they want.

Rear Admirals get to grind Marks of Honor (PvP), Valor (STFs), and Exploration (guess) to trade in for very rare Mk X gear.
