So while I can understand the reasoning, I still find it to be a disturbing trend if it's true.
What about those who don't have any zen and would buy some only if there was a ship sale? Totally silly to think there won't be any more ship sales IMO.

I am not exactly sure that saving $4-5.00 is a huge incentive. It's not like people are saying to themselves: "I'd buy that ship for $20 if it were on sale, but not $25" - and this is especially true when you factor in that they can grind $5.00 worth of zen in about a week just doing their normal 8k Dilithium per day.
STO is about my Liberated Borg Federation Captain with his Breen 1st Officer, Jem'Hadar Tactical Officer, Liberated Borg Engineering Officer, Android Ops Officer, Photonic Science Officer, Gorn Science Officer, and Reman Medical Officer jumping into their Jem'Hadar Carrier and flying off to do missions for the new Romulan Empire. But for some players allowing a T5 Connie to be used breaks the canon in the game.

For someone buying zen, a ship sale is no more cost effective than a zen sale; you'd save money either way. A ship sale just helps people who are grinding dilithium to buy zen on the exchange, without helping the people who are buying that zen with real money in the first place. There's no good business reason to do that.
Exploration suggestions thread - give it a read

BTW, you'd pronounce it 'Cap'n Manks'

I protest the removal of exploration clusters
