Because they have an account-wide unlock with the 1-module-fleet-upgrade-per-character-option?

Edit: and yeas, that is the only reason I can currently think of.

Not sure why, the Odyssey does the same thing and more than what the Galaxy offers. Only ones who really fly it are hardcore Galaxy-class fans.

The previously-listed price of FIVE (5) modules was incorrect information, copied from the Fleet Excelsior. (My bad!)

The Dev Blog will be updated as quickly as BranFlakes can get around to it.

My apologies for the incorrect pricing information.
Oh, that makes things better.

At least the Odyssey is a newer ship. The Galaxy is out classed first by the Excelsior and now the Ambassador both older ships. It's just makes no damn since at all. smdh

Well, no one has rights on a forum. Everyone is bound by term of use agreements. The forum master could ban you for three days for using the letter 'E' too much in a sentence if he decided to make it a term of use violation.

Our concerns, in the long run, really don't matter. You could count on one hand the amount of legitiment concerns that have been addressed in the 3 years this game has been live. Still waiting on a complete KDF faction; a concern that has been around for 3 years. Yes, we really do matter, apparently.

Well, first you have to make money somehow and there are only but so many clothing items in the Star Trek universe you could sell.

And, atleast with the Ambassador class, the masses wanted a fleet variant. Look back in the forum at around the time the Ambassador was confirmed. A lot of people wanting a fleet variant. In this case, people's concerns were addressed since money could be made off of it.

It all comes down to money. Some may view something as price gouging, but there are always enough people that will buy said product to justify a developer gouging prices even further.
Most JJ Trek hate = IDIC fail.

Link to the blog.
For PETE'S SAKE...would it BEHOOVE the Devs to increase the turn to an 8? (matching Excelsior). If we have to pay for (5) Fleet modules), can we AT LEAST get a +1 turn???

For that amount of money, ($25 USD) is that simply asking to much ?????

Fleet ships are so underwhelming. You pay $20 for the FSMs for 1 console slot and a few more hit/shield points on ONE ship. No special console.

At least Cryptic finally realized how stupidly expensive fleet ships are by giving these 2 an alternate skin (very minor difference, but a move in the right direction) and a universal slot.

Fleet ships still ain't worth $20. All Fleet ships should be 1 FSM.

That was a typo, it's 'only' 4. Still too much.
I agree, the fleet versions of cruisers should have a +1 turn rate too. I might actually use the Regent if it was a bit better at turning.
Sometimes I think I play STO just to have stuff to rant about on the forums!

Heh, I know. I told my friends today that if the Ambassador was around at the start, I would've flown it instead of the Sovereign.

So hope Cryptic is going to go back and rethink ships a bit and add more to them to offer more viability. Like the Galaxy having greater power bonuses (due to the larger warp core).

any ways who thought it a good idea of giving the fleet ambassador more hull that the fleet version of the sovi refit/regent ? , sorry but this seems a little odd to me seeing it is an older design . mind you this is cryptic we are talking about they do odd things at times
The Devs need to give the ship a +1 turn or something...NOT an increased hull!
