It has? Or was it more like the usual "at present, we don't see an option to do this".

It is weird that they would not even put something into the game that vaguely resembles a 2409 Connie, apart from the existing tier 2 ships.

For me, it is not that I want it absolutely, I am just so puzzled how little sense this "no, we dont do it" makes. There is absolutely no logical reason not to have a ship of roughly that shape at T5. And this is something I would really like to understand.

Well I myself am at 980 days as of today, and my first impression of the chimera class was WTF? But I have to say the more I look at it the more it grows on me. I have to say that it dose look better in the shots on the P1 site than it does in the original art work.

I can't wait for the Blog, and I can't wait to get my hands on one

and that's all they said about them....

The 1000 day ships had to be something new and different. The devs could not offer up something known or iconic as that would mean loss of revenue by giving the ships away free to vets.

Plus, Cryptic gets a chance to sift thru their stack of ship designs and bring somewhat new designs into the game.

They can not release a ship that is "game-changing" to such a limited group of individuals. But they needed to make ships that were unique and stand out from the crowd.

Anyways, back to the shadows lurking for the dev post in 2hrs or so.

It says that it was released Sunday after originally airing last Thursday. I figured a podcast which was talked up as having the scoop in the vet reward would have had such indicated in its description. Also that we were told that the podcast with the info was to be released yesterday didn't help.

Man i wish i could buy such a ship (or a similar ship) on the C-Store. They could release one with a different Material, so the veteran reward ship would still be unique.



Thank you for reading or ignoring, depending on who you are.

I wonder how a convo in a real navy will go when it comes to someone saying it's ugly.


Grunt: Sir, we are ready to lead our forces into battle I recommend we take the HMS Doom ship

Admiral: No no, we won't take that ship.

Grunt: But, sir she out classes every ship in the enemies Navy.

Admiral: I know, but she's ugly, we shall take the HMS Pretty boat.

Grunt: Sir, she has LED lights everywhere, and is pained bright red, with flames painted on the side. The enemy will see us from miles away.

Admiral: Yes, but we shall die in style.


In my head they were played by

John Cleese as the Admiral

Eric Idle as the Grunt

Okay, I could go for the 1000 day vet ships going into the C-Store...for US $500.00 per single character unlock without any bells, whistles or abilities.

or something similar to the anniversary odyssey.... a ship that's got comparable but not quiet as good stats, and no mode changes.
