Are there any tier-5 RA escorts that you can buy and get as account-wide unlocks? I'm going to get an Assault Cruiser for my tac, and I'd like him to have a choice without me coughing up tons of dilithium, or C-Points for dilithium for a ship I can only use on one toon. If it were possible to do this for the Assault Cruiser I would have done this already (and thus have it continually available for all toons), but I don't think I can.

Note I'm not talking about costumes. I'm talking about handing over the cash (or c-points), and every toon I have can pick it up at RA.

Not totally sure, but I think the D'Kyr and Nebula Science ships are RA T5 and account wide.
The Galaxy-X Dreadnought, too.
DOn't think there is an escort that fits the bill yet.

All C-Store ships are account unlocks, the other ships are per character and you always get a starship token when you gain a rank, with the exception of Vice Admiral (as all Vice Admiral starships are C-Shop).

None of the Dilithium ships are account-wide unlocks.

All of the C-Store ships are account-wide unlocks.

So the answer is...you are going to have to pay one way or the other.

First off, thanks for all the answers. Now, let me reply to them...

I know. But I'm looking to be able to get two RA-level (not VA-level) ships. For instance, if I were to purchase the Exploration Cruiser Refit at T4, unless I'm mistaken, I then get automatic access to it through all characters, yes? I'm looking for something along those lines for the RA ships.

I didn't see any way NOT pay, nor am I trying to. Rather, I'm trying to find a way to pay cash once, and get it through all toons, as you can with other C-Store ships. Unless I am grossly mistaken (see previous post) this is in fact something that you can do for the refit versions of the various tiered ships, e.g. Exploration Cruiser Refit.

While I pretty much plan on buying one of these, these are not RA ships, they're VA ships.

So let me see if I can clarify my question.

I'm looking for a C-Store +1 version of some of the RA ships, that are ALSO for the RA rank, such as how the San Paulo works for the Tactical Escort, and the Exploration Cruiser Retrofit is for the Exploration Cruiser (both are C-Store ships that are direct upgrades to their respective 'major' ship classes, and are C-Store ships, and presumably are account-wide unlocks in exchange for cash). Does anyone know of any of these?

Timelord_Victorious answered what I needed for the most part (in other words, that what I'm looking for does not exist), but I'm hoping someone else might know of a way I can get around this somehow by paying cash (through C-Points) for an account-wide unlock. So does anyone else know?

Once again, thank you for your help, even though it's looking like the answer is, as I suspected, negative. Also, any devs that are listening, you might want to do something about this - I don't really care about the costumes, but I'd be willing to fork over the C-Points if it came with an account-wide unlock for that ship at T5, even if it doesn't come with a special console/ability as it does other tiers.

ALL the C-store ships at ANY rank is account wide unlocks. So yes if you buy a C-store ship at lvl 30 then all chars at lvl 30 can use it. Same at 40 (RA) and 50 (VA).

As for your question, there really is no Tier 5 C-store Fed Escort. Just the Sao Paulo at T4 which still kicks butt until you can get the MVAE or Defiant Retro at 50.

What I think your asking is if you but for example the Assault Cruiser for 120k Dilithium will that unlock it for ever character on your account. No.

Just as buying a console off the D-Store does not send a copy of it to every toon.
