I was a huge Star Trek Fan and
I was huge Cryptic Fan.

I read the new "Refer a friend" page today.

I'm still a huge Star Trek Fan but
I'm not a Cryptic Fan any more.

Almost every real TNG and Star Trek fan would like to see too ships in the game, usable in T5: The Galaxy (and it's AGT-variant) and the Excelsior (including its refit). I posted in petitons, voted and even wrote a ticket with this suggestion to give Cryptic a hint, what me and my friends liked to see and to pay for (!). Even putting it in the c-store for a high price wouldn't be a problem.

But what did Cryptic?

To get the ship I want most within this game, I have to bring five more subs and retail buyers to your game! Although I already gave away all three Guest Passes from my collectors and the free trial token from the homepage to my friends.

So everybody I know is already playing for weeks and month now because I recruited them (!). This way I have no chance to get the ship.

Seriously, Cryptic. You had a great fan here, and you kicked his butt the worst way you could do. Do you know what my fleet is discussing at the moment? Leaving the game because of this. One of our players just wrote in fleet chat what most of our Star Trek Fans feel like: "Once I see this so-wanted ship around without having a real chance to get it by yourself, it will be no fun anymore for me."

I'm "just" a customer and don't have the power to convince you to bring this great Galaxy-X-skin to everyone or even the c-store, but I can ask you to PLEASE think about this decision! It's one of the worst you've done since you released "our" game.


Best regards from Europe,

Thaxx

So yes - the Future Enterprise - 3 Nacelle config is an exclusive "variant" and may be the only T5 Galaxy for a while, but there will be ways to get similar ships in the future - they just might not have the 3rd Nacelle - or front mount single phaser cannon.

you may now go back to you regularly scheduled riot...
Pitchforks = Three-tines = 3 Engines (Random observation + Tin Foil Hattedness)

Also.....

( :::: Drum-roll :::::: )

Where be the TOS style Connie or similar variants (or movie Connie) for the T5 line??

Arrgh! ( :: Add in Pirate-flavored sounds :: )

I say, as a huge Voyager fanboi, this little nugget of information just made my day!

Wow. What do you think you would get if you were standing behind a retail counter and spoke to me like that? Not my money, that's for sure.

Why do you feel this is different?

I think SpikeTV is running Voyager some nights really late. I was up pretty late last night and the first episode was on. I didn't watch it as much as TNG or even DS9 for that matter before but can't remember when it "jumped the shark" for me but I know it was during the first season.

TBH, I really don't see the atteraction in the AGT Enterprise - and personally I think this whole thread is a example of Fan ****.

The AGT Enterprise is just a skin for a existing T5 Cruiser. It's not gonna have a working phaser cannon on the underside of the saucer, and it's not gonna have the exceptional speed and turning radius of the show one, either. It's not going to be a cruiser that maneuvers like a Escort.

It's not the fanboi's wet dream that you saw in the series, it's JUST A SKIN FOR A EXISTING T5 CRUISER, AND NOT A PARTICULARLY ATTRACTIVE ONE AT THAT.

Look at it without the effects shots: Gallery of both the normal Galaxy AND the AGT Enterprise

Please try not to have your imaginations run away with you - it doesn't really matter if you have this mutant or not - the Galaxy itself is a clean design.

Thanks for clearing that up. But I would like to have a pitchfork option in game. The Baht'leth is getting boring.

Actually I got a chuckle out of it myself. I wanted to get in the game to see if I can find pitchforks to put on the Exchange.

This is actually a really cool clue for a design precedent. Namely, the return of ships for high tier applications. I LOVE IT!

I think ALL of the C-store items should be available via gameplay methods. The C-store or referral methods would just allow people to use RL means to get them if they somehow cant get in via the gameplay method.

So far Cryptic are just content to fleece their playerbase of every single bit of money they can get by using carrots the playerbase actually requested.

Want a Ferengi - C-Store - 80 Points
Want a Klingon - C-Store - 240 Points
Want a Pakled - C-Store - 160 Points
Want a Tellarite - C-Store - 200 Points
Want a new emote - C-Store- 120 Points
Want 2 more character slots - C-Store - 500 Points
Want a new ship skin - C-Store - 160 - 240 x 6 for each Federation T5 at least
Want a new bridge pack - C-Store - 80 - 240 Points x 6 for each Federation T5 at least

Amount of Points to get EVERY item excluding, rename, respec.

Approx, 4000 Points
Cryptic Points cost = $62.50 - 5000 Points

Cryptic has near enough $60 worth of trivial garabge on their C-Store and they intend to keep shoveling more out while the game suffers from a general lack of content and gameplay problems.

Good to see where Cryptic's focus lies eh ?


Oh but whats coming next...

...

Want a Caiten - C-Store
Want more bridges - C-Store
Want more emotes - C-Store
Want Pre-order items - C-Store
Want a Romulan - C-Store
Want a Hirogon - C-Store
Want Borg - C-Store
Want a Federation Cloaking Device - C-Store
Want Anything - C-Store.
Want more content - Get it at the C-Store.

If they are that desperate for money then up the monthly subscription and have these items free or earnable via the game. When I say via the game I do not mean stupid 500 days later.
I mean, I complete STF X or complete Accolade = I get ship skin, etc.

Its sickening that on top of the monthly subscription players are going to be getting shafted via the C-Store for stuff that is broken down into the most stupidly trivial additions.
