I was really looking forward to the USS Enterprise being on the C-Store... but when I logged in, expecting to make my purchase for the ship... I was stopped and appalled by the sheer price of the ship. 800 cp? Are you serious? This has to be somekind of a joke. I was expecting something around 200cp, or even ~300. Why is it so prohibitively expensive for a tier1 ship?

800 CP is about 10 bucks. It would seem they're trying to put the bar higher for "ships" than it is for other items.

This might be because they plan to put other "ships" in the C-Store in the future.

I would be happy that it is in the c-store.
Making a ship takes more time then lets say makign the mirror universe uniforms so ofcourse the ship costs more.

Tell the people that dished out a lifetime subscription to another game completely (some of which, for some ungodly reason, claim to have bought the LTS just for that reason only) that the TOS Enterprise costs more than the MU uniforms...

Though $10 is cheap compared to buying a Retail package from Game Stop...

This exactly. Many(including myself) bought an additional copy from Gamestop just for that. With no bonus time if a lifetime sub.

That was what pushed me over the edge and I don't even own a CO LTS. So quit your complaining. You get your precious items at the expense of others. In fact it's right around where I expected it to be.

I frankly just laugh. Cuz anyone that shells out so much money for a lifetime subscription to a game they don't even play, just for some cosmetic feature in another game that in all honestly is totally out of place, well... they were just begging for the stick.

Please don't turn this into another thread-war about Lifetime Exclusives. Thank you.

On topic about the TOS Enterprise... I'm of the mind that ten bucks is way too much for a single ship. That's a fourth of the cost I paid for my Deluxe Edition, and awfully close to a months worth of subscription. I'm not really happy it's in the C-Store because I don't plan to shell out that much cash for a Tier 1 ship, even if it is the old school Enterprise. It might as well remain an exclusive, for all it matters to me.

I hope other ships they add won't be so expensive. I really don't like the C-Store to begin with.. but that's a topic for a different debate.

i think because its not just a ship skin, it it it's own ship, complete with weapons only available with it (the blue phasers) you cant mix and match its parts with any other ship either. i think that maybe thats why its so expensive. to lay the ground work for other ships like it (ships that arnt just skins but theyre own ship completely)
