Allow us to REFIT our Starships instead, thank you.
I can see the Warship Voyager stuff being a C-Store thing or something they never include, as it was a fictional depiction of Voyager anyway.

I think the uber-exclusive Voyager counterpart would be this.

I wonder what hoops they will make us go through to get a Nebula and Excelsior.

Excelsior being the most requested judging by these forums...... 5x lifetime subscriptions? 5x referrals that also make 5x referrals each? 5x lifetime subscriptions that in turn get 5x referalls to ..... you get the picture.

Well, this is true. It's just remarkably bad timing, I guess. After seeing the number of people on this thread who had said they'd pretty much already dragged whomever they could into the game, this is not going to make many people happy.

(And I know it's bad of me, but I'm going to be imagining any Galaxy-X in the PvP areas to be called 'Tricobaltbait' after this.)

ETA: ... that is, if there even WILL BE any Galaxy-X's, in the PvP areas or anywhere else for that matter.

I tried to 'refer' people to this game (read: drag in and beg, mostly in late beta), and the only result was one of them reactivating their Eve sub.

Here's what I know about it so far - The cannon is specific to this ship, and takes the place of a weapon's slot, but is not an item that can be removed and placed on another ship. It shows up as a captain's power on your weapon tray. The beam is intendend to be a very narrow front cylinder beam that can pass through objects and hit multiple targets if you are lined up properly (out to a set distance).

There are no details yet on recharge timers or how it impacts cooldowns of other powers/weapons.

I've also heard rumor that it may have a non-battle cloak - which means that it might be able to cloak - but only out of combat.

Once the designer is finished with the ship - I'll see if I can get the full details.

The ship will be available by the time that your referals hit their first 30 day billing cycle.

also...

Management is aware of this thread ...
OMFG a cloak? Seriously? Doesn't matter i guess since no one is getting 5 people to join but I am sure a few hardcore people with disposable income will buy one.

Sorry to derail for a sec, but I had to comment.

That game was such a sleeper that it's actually easy for me to get people to come and try it out and maybe purchase it if they end up liking it.
That would happen to be PotBS would it?

I did the same thing with Pirates, and have been having a blast. In fact I think I'll have a few fleetmates playing it as well here soon. Not because of a referral program but because of word-of-mouth about a game that has made vast improvements these past months,is actually very fun and can stand on it's merits.

STO = Best thing to ever happen for EvE

Lol, not gonna lie, seeing what EvE is bringing in the next few content updates, I've almost considered re-subbing, seen as I'm a lifer here in STO and no longer have an opinion in Cryptics eyes, since they got my money already. The funny thing is, others who are defending Cryptic have said many other MMOs do the same thing, offering rewards to RAF people. The difference is, they offer them for 1 referral, and the item doesn't generally do anything special/game changing.

Anyways, I too would like to see other options to acquire the ship. I used 2 of my buddy passes from the CE, and both friends aren't interested, as are most other friends that play MMOS. The game just isn't in a state for me to recommend it to friends. I have been mostly silent when Cryptic has made other blunders, this is the first time they've raised my ire enough for me to post a few times. I'm not really super PO'ed, just wish there were other ways to get the ship than having to refer and get to subscribe 5 other people.

Actually it's not PotBS, but I may try it out in the future now after reading that. If you really want to know, I was talking about Fallen Earth. It's combat isn't the greatest, but the open sandbox is a great switch after playing here for the past few months and being stuck in constant instances and rarely getting to meet people. I forgot how much fun just going exploring can be! The crafting is incredible and the community is really nice and have a lot of RPers and PvPers which is what I love.

I have a lifetime to STO, so I don't have to worry about picking one and canceling the other. Hopefully it will hold my interest till season 2 or 3 comes and improves the game. Who knows, maybe by that time I'll be able to actually refer someone to come play STO so I can get uber equipment!
