I don't think its too expensive. What makes it not worth the money is that its only useful for a short time. Unlike uniforms, emotes and most other items.

If it's too expensive for you, then don't buy it. Nobody's forcing you to get it at gunpoint. I'm more pi$$ed at the insanely low prices on the other items. The only ones that met my expectations were the TOS Constitution and the TWOK uniforms...everything else ended up being WAY too low.

I just think they're setting the bar for ships to be higher. Mainly because someday they may think about putting some other ship ... like, I don't know, the Galaxy X ... in the store as well. And would want to make it at least 800 CP if not more.

As I understand it... (as stated by others and from their descriptions) It is its own ship, i.e. T1 with an extra weapon slot, and comes with a set of phasers that scale with your level.
Cryptic has 2 sets (on this issue) of very vocal fans.
800 points for an item that is MORE than cosmetic....
As I dont own one, I must take the word of others. I'm thinking 800 is about right (leaning on the cheap side).

You are correct. It is a T1 ship with one extra engineering console. It does come with one fore and one aft phaser beam bank that shoots blue energy. And does scale up as you level.

I have this item. And those are correct statements about it.

That's not true. You CAN mix and match its equipment with other ships. I stripped my Connie of it's loadout and gave it all Polaron beams. I then took the Connie's weapons and slapped them on to my Recon Science Ship. Still blue, still doubled. :p

Uhm, thanks? I already made it clear I'm not going to buy it. I would love to purchase this ship, but as is, it's too expensive for me.

Other people saying they're setting the bar for other ships-- I hope not. I hope new ships through the C-Store are not this expensive. I am not against paying money for things I want. But paying this much is completely unreasonable. Things like this shouldn't be costing more than 300cp.

Yes, I understand it's an actual ship and not a ship skin. And yeah, it's got blue phasers. But is it really worth 10 dollars to you? If that is, great. It's not for me. I would rather the price be dropped. Those who have already paid for the ship can have the different refunded in CP.

But it doesn't seem I have much support with this, but whatever. Year from now when every new ship that comes out is a thousand or more CP to purchase, well-- all I can say is I hope I'm not playing long enough to see that day.
