Are the price for the packs going to be the same?

What does energy credit discount means when using this freighter? Does it mean that we will have a discount when buying items from the exchange?

It sells commies at merchantprices, I think that's it.

I love the idea of packing ships like this Freighter as possible prizes for DOFF purchases. It's a bad combat ship, but it's very useful for other aspects of the game some people enjoy. So it's not a necessity, but it does make life easier.

Just one question...will the Freighter be Bound or sellable? (Looks like another mad EC dash if it's sellable. lol!)

In spite of the really annoying mess you add to the forums, I have to say that Cryptic did a good job here.

This is an improvement, and something really interesting and worth spending some money on it. Doffing is quite relaxing when you get bored of the repetitive pve content. All doffers will enjoy this ship a lot.

Would be nice to have cool changes only though.

I just love that we've equipped a non-combat intended freighter with transwarp drive, of which the federation can only field a, what 100ish year old ship, and no new ones have come out?

Transwarp to exploration clusters that has a chance of failure some of the time.

That's a feature that I'm definitely missing from my main ship.

Who is we, you don't talk for me.:tongue:

Uh, the Dev blog explicitly stated that the freighter isn't intended for combat.

We already know that Data Samples and Commodities are going to be a huge part of the fleet base system. Honestly I think it's a great idea to be able to have that change of pace and switch to a freighter and just coast around the clusters and nebulae collecting data samples and the reduced price for commodities. It's also something a lot of the Role play players have been asking for as well.

The only downside I can see to it is if the freighter is bound and not sell-able. I'm already over max on my Duty officer roster, but still would like the chance to have the freighter so I would love to be able to buy one on the exchange.

I have a feeling that packs like this are going to be the replacements for the lock boxes in one form or another so I hope this gets expanded beyond just duty officer packs as well. I would love to see a data sample and commodity pack with the chance to get a work bee space combat healer pet or something of the sort. Something that would really expand beyond just the normal ships, especially with fleet bases coming up, maybe even have the work bee be playable and allow for the search and collection of critical components and critical re-generators or something.
