I'm more than happy at the price, and the number of Fleet Ship Modules I need.
currently sitting on 48k Fleet Credits ( would have more but as a fleet officer, I hold back on what I donate so others can )
I own the Tactical Escort Retrofit from the C-Store
so I need just 1 Fleet Ship Module and come Tuesday when my LTS stipend hits I'll have just what I need for the Module(s).
for those clamoring for an in-game way to get the Modules with out having to buy Zen or doing the endless Dt grind. Please note, that they can be traded and thus (will be) are available on the exchange.
Well from my understanding fleet ships just have improved stats. TBH, they are purely a
luxury as any endgame content can still be completed with free ships easily. At least I do with everything but maybe .... no win scenario. The Zen price is expensive, it should be half that for me to willingly purchase with hard earned cash.
PvP this will be a complete disaster, But thats beating a dead targ also.
It really does seem odd that people have to grind through getting fleet credit, and then pay money. It really should be one or the other - grind or pay.
That being said, I would really like to see the ships account bound. We still get just one, but we can move them to a specific character before we "unbox" them. I mean, we have those account banks, why not use them?

Yeah, I do just fine in PvE and missions (Foundry and otherwise) with my free RSV, especially now that I have it fully kitted out with the Reman set to compensate for the weak hull. I'm sure I could do even better in a free escort or cruiser, but I've got to admit it...I enjoy the extra challenge that comes with going up against the big dogs in my ship.
(PvP...I get destroyed mercilessly and it's of no interest to me. The Foundry and PvE are where the fun is.)
When will we have news about STO instead of advertisements?
I have no interest in grinding to get these ships, especially since all I seem to get out of it is a small hull increase and an extra console. Also I find it a bit insulting that I have to grind for Fleet Credits and then either grind for Dilithium to buy Zen, don't get me started on the exchange rate, or simply shell out money out right.
