I probably would have bought the Ambassador as an account unlock because I really like the look of the ship. But I won't pay 25 bucks for a per-character thing. Same reason I never got that T5 K'tinga I really wanted to play.

It's really sad, but in retrospect the great content drought of 2011 was much much better than what we have these days.

That's pretty odd, I could see where they were going if they gave these ships some kind of innate special ability (such as Gal-X phaser lance/Guramba javelin, etc.).

Otherwise I don't understand why these are priced for 5 modules in comparison to other Fleet ships (from a mechanics/power standpoint - it's pretty clear this is marketing trying to strike while the iron is hot).

Have to wonder if they're trying to make up for giving both the T3/T5 away for free with that extra FM...

Typical +hull/+shield.
The missing 3rd Sci console.
Lt Eng a Lt Uni.

Could see folks buying it for 4FMs... heck, the Ambassador lovefest crowd would probably buy it for 6FMs.

whats even funnier is that it seems to nhave a higher hull then the oddy, and a much better bo layout then the galaxy.

talk about ablast from the past.

It is kind of funny looking at the Fleet Ambassador vs. Fleet Galaxy... well, not to folks that like the Galaxy - but it is kind of funny to everybody else.

I didn't even catch that on hull, 43,450 and listed turn rate of 7 (that feels like 8)?

As much as I loathe our money-grabbing overlords, I wouldn't agree there.

We all knew fleet variants were in the works, I just don't think anyone expected them to pop out as soon as the original disappeared.

the fleet ships, i just pretend they are ships that cost between 15-20 mil EC, thats not too terrible for a ship around lockbox ship level.


its kinda funny, the c store ody seems more like a +.9 ship now. this ship is proboly 5 mods because so far they haven't made a dime off of the model and all the work put into it. plus they made slightly different models for this version too. the 5th mod is a tax, because theres no normal c store version that has recouped the costs of making the ships yet.

that universal LT s a false choice, make the ens universal too and they would be on to something. it could out do the ody as a heal boat then, or have 2 LT tacs
