I'm assuming that the ships "won" via these ingame means will be unlocked only on a per-character basis?

If so, I do hope we'll be seeing an account-wide unlock coming to the C-Store.

That the Odyssey and Bortas are being gifted to us after the grab-box controversy, is fantastic. Seriously: Thank you.

I think it should be noted that supposedly that was the plan all along(to give us the Odyssey class for "free"). So its not that this is some kind of apology/reparations for the grab bag fiasco, its simply them doing what they said they planned on(which in itself is quite impressive).

I'll take a free Odyssey class or 4 ad a couple of Bortas as partial repayment for The Year of Hell.

I suppose what I'm getting at Nagus, is that while they said it would be available "free of charge", the term "ingame currency" was still being thrown around, leading to a fair bit of speculation that a hefty Dilthium or EDC/Salvage price tag might be an element.

As it happens, when they say "Free of Charge", they mean it - this is, for all intents and purposes, a 'gift'. And after the year we've had, I can't say I'm going to sniff at it.

Well played, Cryptic.

Before Dstahl even left he said it was going to be a mission reward. Just FYI.

...Which, as reiterated multiple times by Devs since then, was no longer assured as his plans and 'promises' for the game went with him.

This was not a guarantee, ever... But it's still nice to see.

Which is very, very likely and would stink for those looking forward to, say, Android or Photonic captains, the fate of which is still somewhere off in limbo, and obviously won't be available for this event, and thus won't be getting their free ships.

I agree, it is nice to see them actually carry through on something they had already said they would

Starships and prizes are just part of the celebration. The real joy comes from seeing so many people enjoying the universe Roddenberry created, and sharing in the experience online. I look forward to seeing you all in the Star Trek universe for the celebration!
And you have finally begun to represent Gene's creation. Giving these ships away via the anniversary event might begin your redemption. I shall be watching, like the others.

What I need to know is how long until the plus 1 version hits the cstore, and whether it will be an account unlock when it does.
