The 30 days of gametime that come with a retail purchase is also a bonus. All bonuses are free, you don't actually pay extra for them.

Having said that, I too wish the Gamestop Constitution's blue phasers were tied to the ship itself and not the items. When I first got mine I upgraded the weapons (not realizing they were actually good up to MK II) and then sat there wondering why all the phasers weren't blue. If the items were clearly labeled and the text colored blue like a rare, it would have avoided some confusion.
Not necessarily.

Digital Download $49.99
Digital Download Deluxe $59.99

That $10 extra went into a bonus item(s) that was/were therefore paid for.

Granted, some items like the Borg outfit and extra character slots for buying a lifetime sub was just a bonus for buying the lifetime sub, but only Cryptic knows if any of the money went into "buying" those items or not. It's a slippery slope, and all 1's and 0's that make up pretty pixels in the end.

You won't have the ship long anyway.

That seems like a good bonus to the ability, disguise type of fire! Ha ha!

yes the default ones are blue but thats only good till MkIII when you have to switch out the default phasers to keep up in a fight once you switch the default phasers out your phasers fire orange this thread is to change the Preorder connie so any phaser weapon you fit will fire blue.

The blues also have a nice Crit bonus nobody is mentioning which helps with a tad lower DPS... I used mine all the way to LTC with no problem whatsoever.

Honestly, I think the blue phasers scale with you. because right now, they are the exact same DPS at Mk IV phasers. I'll check again when I'm higher.

The Pre-order did not say a Connie and blue phasers so If you are like me and want your Connie to Keep Her blue Phasers instead of them being orange like every other ship's phaser weapons please show your support in this thread.

As alway's Live Long and Prosper
I agree. I accidentally sold the phasers and put in better weapons on my first Connie because I didn't know the blue phasers were from the weapons lol

They do scale. Someone I know was using the TOS Constitution in Commander-level missions. She said it was really, really hard but the weapons had scaled enough to be useful.

I believe the hull scales as well. My lowbie with her Con has 12000 hull, while my almost-LtCmdr has almost 13000 hull.
