I hope it is just a skin graph of the other tier ships. I fear the most for the excelsior, because while the nebula looks different it should still be able to combine with the galaxy. excelsior on the other hand is a different story ( unless it is tier 2 ) it has nothing to combine. ( that I know of ) so I hope it is just a copy of the cruiser / science / escort classes that it's going to share it's tier.

Costume Slots
Bridge Officer Slots
Ship Slots
Bridge Packs
2 New Ships from the ship poll (excelsior/nebula)

No dates on when they will all be available yet - but those items are in the works and will be here sooner than later.
Very nice. Any word on if we'll see the rest of the preorder bonuses?

I may be the only one who generally dislikes both the Excelsior and the Nebula designs. Ahh, but that's okay, as I'm likely going to spend WAY too much money on the new slots! Great to see costume slots, ship slots and BOff slots! I need more of all of those! The only concern I have is that I very much hope they will be purchased on an account-wide basis. That works very well for costume slots in CO, for instance. I think that if they are limited to per-character purchases, they would become immensely expensive and I'd have to regretfully forgo them.

im happy to see the ships, but quite disappointed that they are not free with season 2. those are two iconic and canon ships that really should have been in the game. oh well

more BO slots is a great idea and i look forward to seeing what the new bridges are

As expected. Crpytic wants to milk the players for those 2 canon ship designs, if the Galaxy X wouldn't have been enough.

Damn, it while some of that stuff is very cool I really wish they got added for free. I at least hope they are cheap otherwise. Remember these are supposed to be MICRO transactions, an extra 25 bucks is not micro fyi. I'll hold out hope they some will be added as Vet rewards or maybe they'll be cheap enough for me to get them on impulse.

If it includes the Neolydium Deflector Dish, TR-116 rifle, Dynamic personal shields, 500 free skill points and Varyomic console, count me in!

Dsthal..... can we please not have the Excelsior & Nebula on the c-stoe?
These IMO are ships that really should have been in the game already in the first place.

I#d rather see these ships for free either, but i can understand Cryptic, as every canon ship design has to be licenced seperatly and they are quite expensive. My only hope is that these ship won't cost as mush as the Galaxy X.

famous last words and all but i expect they will cost the normal points for a skin, around 250-300 cp (unless they are a brand new ship in the same way the TOS ship was) then it might be a little extra

i suspect the galaxy x price was down to the fact it was linked to the referral program and a cheaper price that 2000 might have just angered the people that did get the referral

id be shocked and pretty angry if they are that expensive or anywhere near it
