Love the Corsair, it means I can finally put my Orion in an Orion ship. Bit meh on the Qin, would have liked a uni ensign. The Somraw has the Eng ensign but less HP and Eng consoles and a ton less shields so I guess I'll be staying in a Qin regardless.
The BoPs are interesting, not sure either replaces the B'rel, which is good.
There should be more to come but so far, I like them much better than the Fed ones we've seen so far.
Having trouble with ground STFs? Looking for help?
fleet retrofits cost 20,000 fleet credits and a token (which we assume is a C-store schematic mentioned by Geko)
Most, if not all, ships not already with a T-5 version have two versions. A retrofit, and a fleet Retrofit. Retrofits are in line with current VA/Lt. Gen level ships. With 9 consoles and buffs. Fleet Retrofits are in line with the Bortasqu' and Odyssey with 10 consoles, and buffed stats.
For example (and this is what I can recall off my head, so it's a Fed example) the Fleet Escort (T-2 escort upped to T-5) has a Retrofit with 4 Tac, 3 Engineering, and 2 Sci consoles. The Fleet Escort Retrofit, has 4 Tac, 4 Engineering, and 2 Sci consoles. So each version is competitive at T-5, but one is the +1 variant with a bit more Umph.
Due to recent legitimate purchases on your account you have been placed on probation, because that makes good business sense, right? right?
