As i haven't played with the ops or tactical versions on the oddy yet, I really can't say anything about those. But the science version... i have some complaints about. As my toon is a science officer, i rely on the target sub-system options, but the science variant of the oddy doesn't have that. Also for the science variant, you can only have a LT commander science BOFF. not worth it since some of the bad *** science skills for the BOFFs are in the commander rank.

Meh... this is falling on deaf ears i bet. screw it... i'm going back to my LRSVR till the oddys are fixed...

The Exchange is running wild atm, so ingame earning is beyond reason. The direct $ or price is way overpriced.
If you think about it for just a moment...50$ for 3 ships. You will only use 1, so basically you are buying 3 powers which are not even worth considering. So yeah, waaay beyond insane prices.

STO + Microtransactions is beyond balance. Look at Lotro. At least they have weekly sales to promote stuff and fluff. Excuse me, but when exactly did we have the last sale????
I can understand that the company relies on the store now, but seriously...stay reasonable. The store pricing is just like the gas prices atm.

These are no deals for me. I am very happy in my Excelsior Refit. Best cruiser if you ask me.



But hey, thanks for everyone who buys these and finances the game and future C-Store items without long term content.

Its a cruiser that has more of a % to science. It isn't a science ship and to be honest, should not come with SA either...

I'm going to get the Odyssey bundle.

I definitely think it's overpriced. I'm already happy with my Odyssey Star Cruiser as well and I don't feel the urge to 'upgrade' - I'm fairly content.

But, I also want to take into account the amount of effort and energy that went into making these "flagships" from start to finish. The attempt at making a contest, the Dev Diaries that came out of it, CapnLogan's efforts to cater to the STO community by exchanging feedback with the playerbase with the Odyssey (for example, the impulse thrusters on the nacelle pylons was a suggestion he took from me), the effort into creating a flagship for the KDF that CapnLogan championed, and his farewell present to us in the "Aquarius" Odyssey bridge.

I do not think I'll be getting the bang for my buck... so, I think of the excess more as a donation. One made to promote the game. This is my way of saying "thank you" for trying to make STO as good as it can be.

Though I may not be voting with my wallet, I will give the warning that further price inflations in the future may be viewed with far less tolerance. A lot of promotional expenses and manhours went into making the flagship - I can understand and honor that - but don't stretch your luck, Cryptic. If I get the ship I want and cover the content until I feel I've completed the game... I might not be around for as an active player in STO's third year. It's up to you to make sure the content the game has to offer makes it worth it for me to use the Odyssey in.

Have we discussed allowing you to use the bridge on other ships once you buy one/all of the flagships?

Well, I bought the Odyssey bundle. Would have been happy to buy one ship plus a bundle containing just the consoles, but hey....

Anyway, correct me if I'm wrong, but the calls for nerfs remind me of when people were requesting that the bugship be nerfed. I forget hwo explained it, but since people (in most vases) had to pay money for a chance at one, for them to nerf it could be legally interpreted as a "Bait-and-switch".

I think nerfing the flagships now that they're actually out and purchased would even more easily be considered a bait-and-switch... considering they are directly purchased.

TL;DR: Expect buffs to the flagships, if anything. Don't expect nerfs. They could get in trouble if they do.

Don't think I will be purchasing these.

I already purchased the sao paulo and defiant refits, both cause the chase camera to bug out and enter an endless swinging loop (or switches by itself to free cam) on most sharp turns making them almost useless, and still no fixes for them. Paying more money for something that will probably be bugged and will never get fixed does not seem like a good idea.

I can only base my purchase decisions on the quality of previous products. Pitty, I love the game, but stupid bugs really annoy me.
