Why in the world would either Faction be flying a Dominion Ship?... Anyone ever stop to ask that question? Also, why is this thing allowed to be so OP anyway? In DS9 they were not that powerful. Their best attack was to RAM enemy ships in a suicide run. Sure, they could pwn a Runabout but so can anything else.

Too busy levelling and grinding for stf gear to waste time and a lot of money on the slim to none chance of getting said dominion escort.

In fact, id probably have better odds of the lottery...

Of course, if it were in the c-store for everyone to have if they want then things would be different.

To be fair, OP, you can also spend the whole time the Q Winter thing is running, trying your luck to get them for free. All these agruments about uber-rarity are so premature. It's day one and you haven't got the ultra-rare reward? My heart bleeds.

This is how most of the other Perfect World games are, in other games it is a rare chance at a new mount for you character to ride- here it's a ship. Not surprised to see it manifest in STO now.

The whole problem is that it is a reward with any level of rarity at all.

Escorts have been waiting patiently, and nearly silently, for a new and unique ship for almost 2 years now. Were the Excelsior, D'Kyr, Nebula or Galaxy-X random in any way?

This is not a question about how lotteries work or why we can't all be winners. The real issue is why should something sorely needed by a segment of the player base be placed behind this lottery wall.
