Has anyone else noticed that the pack does not exist on the C-store page on the main site?

I came across this bridge pack a few days ago and I was hesitant to pick it up. Glad I didn't after seeing it first hand from a fleet member.

First of all, the *in-game* C-store has it listed but offers no screenshots. Oddly, the Sovereign bridge pack does not even show up on the official site's c-store. You really don't know what you're getting into until you've already bought it.

The bridge itself ..

1) It is nothing but a re-paint of the Diplomat series of bridges. The only differences are the colors, lighting, raised Captain's chair, and the occasional officer's seat.

2) It looks nothing like the Sovereign's bridge that we know. Again, it's just a rework of the Diplomat bridge.

I'd like to hope that this is just a placeholder for the actual Sovereign bridge but it's doubtful..

It seems to be a Cryptic-wide thing. I was playing the Champions game the other day and noticed a desk I decided to sit at was about 4 and a half feet high.

Seriously, we've been commenting and complaining about this for a long time. The tactical station on my Galaxy-based bridge has to be nearly 30-40 feet across. I hope my tactical officer has roller skates. My Captain has taken to carrying a megaphone, since he can't actually talk to his helmsman, who is about 20 feet away.

It's ridiculous, laughable... and frustrating, annoying and depressing. This isn't rocket science, GET IT RIGHT.


A large part of the problem is that they keep issuing garbage, and WE KEEP BUYING IT (well, I don't, I refuse to use the C-Store). If you really want to make a statement, it seems the only one they will notice is the one you make with your wallet. Unfortunately, if everyone made that kind of statement, the game might fold up.

Damned if we do, damned if we don't.

It really must be a bug that it was added.
One that they obviously should know about since they updated the C-Store a few times already...

Ya know they've kinda commented about this oh say 40 thousand times since January of last year right? And they've continuously said they are looking into ways to shrink some down.

And fine. If ya don't like it don't buy it. Me? I bought this pack not knowing anything about what the bridges looked like (and I even posted the screenshots on here in a few threads) and while yes, I expected something new and not repainted and elevated, I still find them fun to use considering I feel like my captain is super cool sitting so high up above others hehe.

Some people like them, some people don't. "One mans garbage is another mans treasure"

I do have every sympathy for the original poster, actually. The pack is labelled "Sovereign", and without any screenshots to illustrate to the contrary, it is reasonable that your average Star Trek fan will expect to be getting a bridge that looks exactly like the canonical Sovereign-class bridge. The same goes for the "Intrepid" bridges.

Cryptic must either provide screenshots to make it crystal clear that it does NOT look like the canonical Sovereign-class bridge, or they must name it something else.

To name it Sovereign and then hide its appearance until after payment can only be taken as a deliberate attempt to deceive people into paying for it by making them think they're getting something they're not.
