Just wanted to ask, what you guys do with all those ships you once purchased, be it fleet ships, regular ships, c-store ships?

personally i avoid hopping around my ships too often, i tend to have one ship for one character. And the skilltree is specifically made for one ship and one set of Boff powers (mostly just sci abilitys that would become useless in other ships)

i kind of find it sad that they are, nowhere and just storage room for my alternate weapon sets.

also there have been rumors about the introduction of something that allows you to use your "unused" ships
any news on that?

Two storage ships and the rest custom sets for different gameplay styles.

I basically keep 2 sets of Bridge officers with powers to run 2-3 different ship set ups. Then have my main ship and 1-2 other ships I will swap out to when I get bored that have a full set of gear on them. I have one ship I use strictly for STFs and another I use to screw around in PVE like the Romulan Patrol missions. The others I use for extra bank slots to store ship gear/weapons/devices. I also have an experimental ship where I try out different loadouts and weapon set ups just for yucks.

I have 3 sets of BOffs, one for cannon, one for beams and one specifically for tanking with my carrier.

This seems to have worked best for me.. as a Boff setup for an escort cannon works equally well on anything that takes cannon.

The older lower level ones are stuck in dock. The current ones I usually use. I rotate them around. With my Eng. Capt. I have one for DPS and one for tank based. So I rotate them depending on how rough it gets on the missions.

Now as I replace ships by going Refit I will get rid of the older lower tier ones. As I highly doubt they will be made use of. Unless I want to go on a tour. Like I have a low tier Excelsior and Galaxy. I have plans to replace them both with their Refit versions. So they will be more useable.

Rumors are just that.

Talk around the forums has been that Cryptic has said something along the lines of letting you use your ships in storage for Doff-like missions -- I assume such a function would use the Tier of the ship in determining its success, and hopefully different missions based on its mission type (tactical, engineering, and science).

At best though, it's wishful thinking on a Dev's part. There's been no official statement that they're working on such a system, which means that any such thing is a long way off.

Personally, I'd love it if the Fleet Support ability would call one of a small number of designated ships from your shipyard storage to assist (I'd love to call in my old Defiant-R to come help in combat).

That last idea would be quite interesting.

I'd like it if they replaced that fleet support ability with one which would call one of your ship in dry dock and let them enter the frey till they got to 10% health then warped out. They would have the weapons you currently have on them and use between 3-5 powers you choose from a customisation menu perhaps from someone in the shipyard. I'd also like to see the 50% health limit removed but it keeps the same 9 minute cooldown.
