Seems like the more I read, the less difference there is between subed and silver. Both lead you right to the C-Store, everytime, all the time.

I have to admit I am seeing the same thing and it's my greatest concern.

There is almost no incentive for people to remain subbed right now as the only real difference are venteran rewards and some other things you can get for purchases in the C-store that are less than the price of a subscription. The loss of the free ship at RAUH isn't much of an issue since the ships you choose form are the same as RALH but the free ship at VA shouldn't be taken away as VA is a new rank that unlocks new ships on Holodeck. Reaching VA should not be okay now you unlock new ships... sorry all the new ships you can buy are C-store only...oh and we're jacking up the prices on them too... BOHICA!

The Ferengi have bought Starfleet and now it is all a money making scheme for the Orion Syndicate!

That is wrong, as there is no grind method with VA ships, it is just pay or do without.

Touche, I thought you could buy them with dilithium, if thats not the case, then you are indeed correct .

Looks like this is true to me. I cannot get a Defiant Retrofit without visiting the C-store on tribble.

Please can a dev confirm that this is intentional or not.

If it is please accept my resignation as I \ragequit.

Yeah, but you don't get a ship plaque, token or Dilithium. I'm guessing the devs just forgot to change the text.
