You might want to re-edit your page Xindi Box Lobi Store page.

You have a lot of programing data on the left side of the page.

True.




IDK if it has already been discussed, but i have serious doubts about the Ships, especially the XDC.
First, why a Escort and a Carrier/"Dreadnought" again. Why no Science ship for a change?
Second, why is the XDC so small and destroyer like?

The Xindi-Aquatic cruiser as seen in ENT, at least 1800 meters long if not even bigger.
(That's more than twice the length of the Sovereign)
It was so big, the NX-01 could be stored in it.
And what did Cryptics devs do?
They made it 1/3-1/2 as big and as nimble as a Avenger Cruiser-Escort.

I'm asking myself why do the devs have to make all new ships into part time escorts?
This is Star Trek, it's filled with big ships NOT able to dogfight like a WWII fighterplane. These are BIG ships with BIG guns, not some Star Wars space jetfighters.

Seriously, is it so hard to stay away from the pc game spacefighter cliché, even nowadays?
(this isn't the mid-late 90's anymore)
If i wanted to do dogfights in space along with nimble ships i'd play BSGO.

well, the Mirror-bop...yes. I want. I don't want at the level of dumping serious money into lockboxes to get, but I do want. The only way they could've done it better would've involved...nevermind, If I said it, it would not happen.

suffice to say that it's only defect is that it's in a Frelling Lockbox, and not in the Frelling C-Store as a T5 upgrade with a Fleet brother that adds in a third Sci console.

I play KDF, because being a genocidal maniac works better with Klingons, than explaining it as a member of Starfleet.

With the Cardassians, Ferengi, Klingons, and Romulans all firmly allied with the Federation against the Iconians, this is a reasonable course of action.
lol Nope.

But... the Xindi Aquatic cruiser IS at least twice a Sovereign ingame.

You would prefer a 2500 zen c-store ship INSTEAD of paying 2 million EC to get the ship from the exchange? That's less than the price of one lock box key.....

Like I have said you can't get a game that is so close to star trek and yet so far away a lot of games with Star Trek have fights in and no exploration and they were played once and traded in this one is the only one that HAD some but limited version of exploration but I don't even link this game with Star Trek it has just become STO. This game will never be linked to Star trek until exploration comes back and all this stupid grinding stuff for rep stops

So only one single Romulan ship is allowed to use the sabotage probe, but after the lockbox trade any and all Fed and KDF ships can use the sabotage probe? Its not a great console to begin with but for those that bought the LoR pack and can only use it on the Dhelan, it is insulting to watch feds get it for 2 mill EC of the exchange and in a better version (read unrestricted version) if they want to.

Others have more or less stated how I feel at the money grab. Personally, I'll continue to enjoy what I spent on the game but like hell if I'm going to bother trying to compete with P2W or spend another dime. Cyrptic went too far this time. Without some PvP or exploration all there is in this game is grind? What is the point? Cryptic still can't make challenging content to keep up with the power creep over the last year. The only point to getting all that gear was PvP or vanity.
