Unique refers to the features, but you knew that. You're just looking for something to complain about today. Go for it. No one really cares. Those wishing to spend the $25.00 will. Those that aren't, won't. Simple concept really.

You can log into the game and see the item on the c-store list. If you read the info section you can see it's listed for 2000 cps.

What are you talking about? First, I don't do complaint posts. Secondly, I'm not complaining about the price. Third, I wasn't even talking about the ship, I was making fun of the retarded WoW horse.

Here, Mr. Touchy, have a hug...

Sorry, dude. I'm just tired of seeing the same complaints thread after thread simply because people don't want to accept that their hobby is someone else's business and what you do for fun they do for livelihood.

I want the X but I'm a bit thrown off by the price, even with the points that I have I'll stll need 1200 more to get the X and that will run me close to 19.00 bucks. Maybe I'll flip a coin

I'm still waiting to find out how we can get all these C-Store items with game effects, in game. The Galaxy X has 3 different game effects not offered anywhere else for Fed side, a lot of the species have unique game effecting traits that can't be used by other players who don't purchase them.

I'm not the one who made the promise that there won't ever be items on the C-Store with game effects, that can't be earned in game another way. They made that promise and they're the ones who have been slowly sneaking items on the shop that are far more than cosmetic and have game effects.

  • A very few are account-level management tools, such as being able to rename a character
  • Micro-transactions should never limit your ability to enjoy the game or reach the level cap
  • Any micro-transaction that has a game effect can also be earned in the game through play


These principles apply also to Star Trek.

BTW, I haven't been too active on these boards over the past few months. In my role, I oversee development of both Champions and STO (as well as another mystery project); a lot of focus has been on Champions as it approaches launch. But as soon as it hits shelves (Sept. 1st), I'll be turning my "lidless eye" (gratuitous geek reference) to STO. I'm even moving my office downstairs to be with the team. Craig tells me that the STO crew met that with a lot of...excitement (or fear, not sure which). So you'll be seeing my bright shining face a tad more in the days to come.

You can still earn the Galaxy-X without purchasing any C-store points. It's called the RAF program

But according to Cryptic's microtransaction principles, we'll be able to earn it through gameplay as well.
