Do the consoles work on other Cruisers or just that one?

The console is supposed to work on all cruisers and carriers. It is a very good idea this console.... well, I think it is...lol. Anyway, I hope the new skins that come out for variants of ships are going to be rockin' too... the only thing I cannot stand on this Vor'Kang is the hammerhead on the front..... yup I said it... just my opinion....lol.

so far it has been a good ship. Besides we need to support the starving developers at Cryptic!

I really like this new ship. It is a new look and you get the console. The Venture X looks super awesome. The only complaint I have is you can't use the #6 material if you change parts on the ship to customize it. Awesome look!!

You also get an extra sci boff slot which helps

Lovely Skin..... but all i want is the skin and its way too expensive, hope this isnt gonig to be the cost of C Store stuff when it goes FTP.

Also Cryptic you really need to sort out how we respec if you want players buying of new toys, at least group all escorts together and cruisers with cruisers skill, i dont and wont buy this because although i fly cruisers i fly currently a Star Cruiser, even though a Galaxy is a cruiser i got to respec???????? sort it and quadruple your income!

I may still get it though as its a nice looker! (Although i dont like the Klingon one at all for some reason) im a sucker for ship customisation!

there is a differance between a bridge pact and a ship.

clearly you and the rest complaining about prices wont be around when this goes F2P, and its sad to see.
Actually those are ships and not just skins. There are a couple ship skins that are around the ~160 cp price I think.
Yep, Nimbus, Comet, Maelstrom, Nomad, Hephaestus, and Imperial. All ship skins at 160 cp. They provide more parts for existing ships.

They've said they'll be working on the skill system at some point.

1) The Double Beam Banks & DHCs fire from the very edges of the saucer section, not the gun ports flanking the bridge.

2) The Phaser lance completely obscures the forward torpedo tubes.

3) The registry number is (again) obscured by the phaser lance, rather than being divided by it.


I don't care how loudly a customer base screams and pitches a fit... if the product isn't ready for release, it should be withheld. I'd post screen shots of the above, but for some reason I'm unable to actually take SSs as of late. :/

I personally do not like the look of the Venture. Sorry, I just think it's ugly. There's something about the way the neck connects to the saucer that turns me off, and I really don't like the deflector dish. If other's like this ship, I'm happy for them. And it's not that the artist didn't do a fine job, I just don't like that particular aesthetic. I won't be buying it cause it's just not my cuppa joe.

I think the Vor'Kang is awesome looking. I really like the "ribbed" look on the skin, the big hammer head, the red slit-like deflector, the sleek neck bridge... The ship has a fine aggressive appearance that I'd love to have. I even have a Klingon character in mind who would be a fine match to captain the Vor'Kang.

That said, I will not buy either ship.

I ascribe to the opinion held by many, that these ships offer Pay-to-Win features by being in a "Tier 4.5" class that is not otherwise available in-game. I do not wish to support that.


It's a bummer too, because I really like the Vor'Kang. I wish Cryptic would sell it as a separate skin.

Perhaps down the line if/when there is a reasonable method to acquire T4.5 features in-game, I may change my mind and get me that Vor'Kang. Until then, I vote No Sale.
