It's a lifetime subscriber who used a VA token to purchase the ship. He explained it to us in OPvP chat today.

Promotion missions are more a formality then anything. Other then a free token up to level 40, they serve no purpose. And the VA token is a veteran reward, so it is not tied to the promotions.

That said, as far as the Romulans go. You can level up as much as you want, it is just the stories stop after Temporal Ambassador, So you have to do it via Explorations/Doffs and the like. but once you get to level 50, assuming you have subscribed to STO for 600 days, you can use the VA token to get a T5 ship, even some of the c-store ships, though you don't get the Fleet module discounts for fleets, and if you accidentally dismiss it, you are SOL. Unlike if you actual bought it in the C-store. Where you can reclaim it. Works the same for a Starfleet or KDF character.

they have a promotion lock...so you cant test the free ships...unless you have test zen (how that works i STILL dont know) or are an LTS.

You can't test the paid ships either because the currently have no prices on Tribble, so you can't buy them at all.

According to Bort the other night in TTS, they really don't want us to go over lvl 21, until they unlock the rest of the missions.

He said that those that do, will be 'skewing' the test results.

Which is why they are preventing the Sub-Commander promotion from completing.
