There are very few stupid questions in life.
There are far more stupid answers.
Let's just hope I don't give such a stupid answer.
(I don't own Androain ships so I never had any need to test it)
As I recall reading these fellows
1. they fixed the weapons and gave a refund(unfourtionate but it happens in games your lucky to get a refund)
2.your 'Fleet" sucks at funding the starbase(entirely your fault not relevant to "issue")
3. your a entitled a**(read above statement about starbase)
many people have had purchases "nerfed" as you say(gal-x for example) and got nothing quit complaining and ether move on or stop playing
As stated before this game is in constant development. Things can and will change and not always to your liking. Unlike previous changes Cryptic gave a full refund. Cryptic did what was right in this instance.
On your fleet situaiton. I do not agree with other have said. The size and level of the fleet does not make it any less special. Having a small gathering of RL friends and family in a T1 Starbase fleet is far great then a T5 mega fleet where no one gives a %$#^ about each other. On that front stay the course if you so choose.
There are rental fleets out there that will allow players access to their stores for a price. Instead of agonizing over obtaining those Fleet Andorian weapons because the time sinks and resources needed at too great at the moment, purchase temporary access to buy them. This way you have the best of both worlds. Great weaponry while progessing your family starbase at a comfortable pace.
On a side note there are fleets with a family like atmosphere that you and your relatives would be welcome in. I understand the fleet name tag holds a great honor for your kin but joining mature strangers who have the same motivations and goals as your family can be a good experience. This goes to not only the OP but anyone else reading this tread.

well you should have waited. i turned in my prototype phasers, which i had like 3 of, and since had a fleet that already had those unlocked, got enough dil back to cover a whole set and still had like 10k dil left.
