# 1 Buying ships with Zen
10-24-2012, 01:25 AM
Greetings all,

I have a question, well I bought the original series costumes for 550 zen, and it's unlocked for all of my character slots that I have (which is really cool).

What I'm wondering is, if I decide to buy a ship with my zen, such as the "Dreadnought Cruiser",

will that ship then, (after I buy it), be unlocked for All my federation characters? and future slots for fed characters?
or just for one?

Also, if it is unlocked for every fed character, how do I get it for each one? obviously I go to earth space dock shipyard.

Yet I mean, will it be free then for each of my characters that reach level 50?

Please if someone could reply to me (maybe a few somebodies lol).

Yes, zen store ships can be requisitioned for free at the shipyards of Earth Space Dock (or Qo'nos if Klingon ship) and Deep Space Nine, across all your Fed characters.

If you've bought one, it'll be listed as a possible purchase in the shipyard, but with a price tag of 0 zen. You just need to have an empty ship slot, and you're good to go.

Federation (or Klingon) ships you buy at the zen store will be unlocked for all your Fed (Kling) characters. You can claim them in the ship requisition. Just select the ship you bought and then click "Buy" just like you would buy a new ship. If you've aready bought it the price tag will show 0 zen. You can also discharge your zen ship and reclaim it again as many times as you like.

The old series bundle you bought will be available for all future Fed characters as well. Just go to the zen store menu select the bundle and claim it.

Hello,

can I buy a ship (e. g. star cruiser), that
requires the rank of a vice admiral for example, with zen, while being only a lieutenant commander?

I searched on the forum, but maybe I didn't search right or was not clear for me to understand.

When I buy a ship from the Zen store, it is account bound for all my captains or only for the Fed, KDF, Rom captain I'm logged into when I purchase the ship?

Did you even read the posts before this? They answered your question. When you buy a ship using Zen it unlocks that ship for ALL characters that are of the correct rank and faction, so you can claim it whenever you want, any number of times you want.

It's even better than that.

Zen-purchased ships are permanently "unlocked" for all characters on your account, providing that they are of the proper faction and level to use the ship.

Additionally, you can dismiss and reclaim the ships an unlimited number of times (in order to strip off and use special weapons or consoles elsewhere), though each character may only have one copy of the same ship at the same time.

And in the case of Tier 5 ships (and this will probably be true with Tier 6 also, once Fleet Tier 6 ships are released), owning the Zen ship also activates a discount on the Fleet variant (if there is one) of the identically named ship-type (aside from the word "Fleet").

Starship Upgrade Requisitions work similarly; they will unlock the upgrade on the identical T5 ship (as well as Fleet variant) account-wide with a single token.
