We will be bringing the Tribble server down for maintenance to apply a new update.
ST.16.20111119a.18

General:
  • Updated Astrometric Duty Officer active roster bonus and the Tier 3 Excelsior Transwarp Coil passive bonus to properly reduce the cooldown for Transwarp abilities.
  • Updated the diplomacy bonus accolades to explain the "emeritus" status, that is, bonus rewards for people who completed the diplomacy tiers before Season 5 launched.
  • Characters who existed before the update to Season 5 will now receive the new Duty Officers they would have obtained by leveling up.
  • The Defiant Retrofit, Galaxy Retrofit, Intrepid Retrofit, Nebula Refit, and Bírel Retrofit can now be reclaimed if you discharge them.

Does this apply to all of them or only ones bought in the C-Store? Or, if purchased with a token can we also delete and reclaim now?

Also, any word on getting the 600 day veteran reward VA ship token actually added to the game?

Does this mean when this goes to holodeck that I'll be able to claim the C-Store ships I bought on my alts?
Over the weekend Ieveled two toons to VA and I'm at a standstill because the two ships I wanted to fly with them, the Defiant-R & Intrepid-R, I can't claim. I even bought the Sao Paulo refit for the costume, which is just salt inthe wound.

No, that has never worked. Why would you think it would?

If ships are meant to be claimable by alternate characters, this will indeed address the issue where that is not currently happening.

what about the issue of not being able to claim the teir 3's when you buy the teir 5. (nebula and exceliosr) we were told they were to be included. also, what about the teir 5 excelsior (for those who had it before the season 5 patch) not having a console. is there really 2 different teir 5 excelsiors?

umm... it was never a feature to get the Tier 3 with the Tier 5 versions. they're entirely separate, then and now

Man I hope so! I bought several ships for Fed characters with my VA during the T-Giving and many of them were not showing as "purchased" "Free" or "Claimable" on my alts.

I have to say, this would be a deal breaker for me because of the wording in the purchase description. If indeed I can't claim these others ships, I'll probably be so angry and feeling like I was cheated I will walk away from the game (keep in mind I'm considering a lifetime sub.) Sure people are leaving for content reasons- but feeling completely cheated on a about a dozen c-store purchases will be the straw and my subscription the camel. I'm hoping this resolved before the subscription sale ends or my decision will be made for me.

On that note, you guys REALLY should go back and address the descriptions for nearly all the purchasable items. I bought the Caitain BOFF assuming it was for all fed characters, and was upset when I found out it wasn't. Nothing in the description says it was for that character only. It only says that if you want more than one Caitian BOFF you need to buy it again. I inferred that it was like the Borg BOFF in that it was account wide, but different in that it was not unique.
Luckily, it was only 120 c-points. But it's still crappy.
Purchases like "8hr skill buff" clearly say it is for that character only, so consistency is off here.

I also don't get why I'm allowed to by the "new" Borg BOFF even thought I can't use her since I have the other one, which I guess meets the "active" descriptor in the purchase description. I read that and thought it meant actively stationed- meaning, I could have more than 1 but not in use at the same time.
This is not the case. I cannot use the new Borg BOFF on any account since I have the old one. Another waste of C-points.

There was a Dev Quote that stated if you bought the Tier 5 Excelsior already (only with C-Points of course) you will get the Tier 5 AND the Tier 3 unlocked in the C-Store after the Update.

Same for the Nebula Class.

False.

The devs have indeed stated that if you bought the T5 Excelsior and Nebula in the C-Store before Season 5 went to Holodeck, you'd get the T3 versions account wide unlocked at no extra charge.
