And i bought the MU uniform for those 280cp.

Besides, the two cannot really be compared since the one was only a "perk" and the other is actually a "reward" item, the later being the Galaxy X.

Actually it has the same number of consoles as an assault cruiser (in the same distribution), and one less REAR weapons slot. Because of this, with the Lance considered a front weapon slot, it can be viewed as a FIVE (5) front, three (3) rear Assault cruiser.

This ship is designed around "FLEET TACTICS".. meaning you need several ships to help defend it while I uses it's primary weapon configuration on a target. I would guess it's primary target would be the KDF carrier. Using the right consoles to make it "HEAVITY ARMORED" would be a key. It is NOT a "Stand Alone" ship... it's a "Fleet Flagship"

Look at how many of us added additional copies of the game, at $20-$50 each, just to get things like the tribble and the Borg Bridge Officer. Cryptic will have no problem collecting the 2000 points ( $25.00 ) for this ship. I do feel the price is appropriate... Tier 1 Constitution = 800, Tier 5 Galaxy (Call it the Tier 5Galaxy) for a bit more than 2x that price.

If you buy both the TOS and the Galaxy-X, you can put the blue phasers on the Galaxy (so the BLAST from the lance REALLY stands out), Also, I would consider putting either Beam Banks or non-heavy cannons on the front to increase the firing angle to 90 from 45.

Look at the "Demand" for this ship in the polls. You will see LOTS of them.

It's discriminating against sane people who don't do crazy crap like buy multiple copies of the same game just for a few extra rewards. They're really alienating a lot of their customers.
