# 1 Ranking up your Ships
02-25-2010, 11:38 PM
ok so here is the thing, i watched next generation and ds9 casually but was a big voyager fan. and when this game was coming out i knew i was goning to be a science officer because i knew i wanted to fly an intrepid ship like the voyager well now im an admiral and i still do use my intrepid most of the time for explorations and helping fleet members level up but when new missions are availale and when it comes to pvp i just cant afford not to have the extra consoles and officer abilities you get on admiral ships SO HERE IS MY SUGGESTION

why cant we have the ability to instead of buying a higher ranked ship for 1 credit just play to rank up the ship we have if we decide we like it
or maybe pay like 500 to 1000 exploration badges to rank up the ship you want to use

i know a few people that got their game at gamestop because they wanted to use the original enterprise ship and now can nolonger use it it doesnt make much sense really so maybe this can be looked into i know there must be a few people out there that would like to keep their defiant class tactical ship into the admiral rank or that escort ship thatl ooks like picards enterprise

There's been alot of discussion on this and I wonder if the devs are looking. The majority of people I've seen post agree that it would be nice to be able to improve T1-4 ships to T5 capability. The discussions range from payed upgrade to a seperate crafting system that allows you to reengineer your ship. I hope it happens cause I'm with you.

I just want to go on record and say that a Miranda should never be able to outclass a Sovereign.

That said, I agree on the idea of being allowed to refit your ships as you progress in rank. I have a friend who's been tracking my progress through the game. She was thrilled when I picked up a Connie... She was mortified when I traded up for a Dakota, and demanded to know why. I had to explain the game mechanics, stating that I while I love the Connie, I really need the extra weapon and BO slots.

So yay to ship refits, albeit with some limitation to encourage upgrading to more robust models. Maybe preventing the player from refitting more than two ranks above the base class?

I totally agree with this. You should be able to rank up any ship you want to. It gives you a complete choice on which ship you want to fly, without being gimped.

I would agree completely, as long as the T1 Miranda can't be upgraded.

I would be ok with this but a lot of people, like my self, have the pre order ship and would really like to keep using it.

Exactly. If all the other tiers were available for refit, why not the T1's too?

I'm on the fence. What's stopping someone from leveling an Akira or Stargazer to the T-5 level? They would just load skill points into Heavy Escort Captain and max out BOff-related Adm. skills. Essentially, the people who want to play the T5 ships are at a disadvantage, especially if they want to max out their admiral level captaincy skill.

Simplest method against this is to impose certain limits. Maybe you can only refit certain aspects of your ship. Maybe you can only refit up to a certain level past your base tier. Perhaps you can never have as many BO slots as ships of a higher tier. Want higher hull strength? Prepare to lose some maneuverability... Etc.
