Pffft. Whatever ship they want is their own business, really. Not the first who wanted a Fleet Intrepid, won't be the last undoubtedly. I do try and warn off people who want the Odyssey or, of all things, Aquarius admittedly. They're just fundamentally bad. If someone wants a Fleet Long-Range Science Vessel? Why not, so long as they know what they're getting?

Meh, back while S6 was being tested on Tribble, I was looking forward to getting an Aquarius - it just looks nice. But yeah, had I kept playing long enough to get a fleet ship, with or without the fleet buff, the stats would have sent me running away. IT'S DREADFUL!

Honestly though, if the player's paying for the 40M version, I see no reason to warn them not to get the Odyssey - it's okay if you don't care for the fleet-style buff the C-Store versions received.

Edit: Other than the 10 fleet ships you could get if you had the credits for the thing in addition to the 40 ship modules.

1st Aquarius Division is very legit. 3 of us picked up our Fleet Sovereigns from them. Fast, easy and very polite transaction. I see no reason to not buy from them.

The TOS Veterans give them a thumbs up.

Loving my Fleet HEC. Having a T5 shipyard was hard work, but worth it

To be honest, the ammount of resources required to get a starbase and shipyard to tier 5 is so high, I highly doubt any fleet that has them unlocked would be of the mindset to trick players into getting EC, more so because any fleet capable of unlocking thier bases to this lelel most likely have no need for EC anyway.

Jupiter Force will have T5 Shipyard unlocked next week (it's currently slotted and running), T5 Engineering and T5 Starbase was unlocked a while ago now. I assume there must be several other of the large prominant fleets at this level also. To be honest, I think the prices some fleets are charging is pretty fair

I do think it would be nice if Cryptic altered the system though and made fleet ships only purchasable from the shipyards in a Fleet system, and allowed players to buy them using thier own fleets provisions, so an invite to the fleet would not be needed. I'd also suggest that buying from a fleets starbase or shipyard that you are not a member of should cost more (maybe 150%-200% excluding fleet modules), that way there is still an incentive for fleets to level thier own starbases. This would definatly make it a little less of a clumsy procedure and encourage people to want to visit higher level fleets starbases.

If you want, you could always add some support to the Aquarius thread I posted. Though some people in that thread seem to feel the Aquarius deserves to be dreadful and that every other escort should be made worse.

I just got my Fleet Assault Cruiser from 1st Aquarius. I am somewhat new still, and so the guy was really helpful in explaining things to me when I was purchasing the ship. So, I am very much satisfied with the ship and the service. A big thanks!

I've been trying the Imperial skin so far. I already have the Noble and Regent skins and have flown those a great deal many times.

Our fleet, Access Denied, is almost done with the whole starbase. And no, we don't sell access to ships, weapons, hangers, etc, we just have fun, focus, and work as a 400 member team Hmmmm.. Think I just called us the borg lol
