I am a Captain 2, a Tactical Officer and I have just got my Tactical Escort. I discovered, after I had swapped ships and gone back into space, that there were two transwarp icons on my HUD. At first I was going to get rid of one, thinking it had doubled up, but I happened to notice that the logo was slightly different, I hovered my most over it to reveal "Transwarp to K7". A look on my powers lists confirmed this. I clicked it, and as expected my ship entered transwarp and I appeared outside K7.
None of my friends have this (including the ones higher levels/ranks than me). I have no idea how I got this, can anyone help shed some light on this for me. How did I get it? And can I get transwarp to other bases?
The only difference I can think of, that is unique to me, is that I bought a runabout at DS9.
I tried using search, but couldn't find any relevant topics.
The only thing I can think of is that you've reached the Consul rank in the Fed Diplomatic Corps, which gives you the Transwarp to K7 power. You receive Transwarp powers to the other stations as you level up in the FDC (Envoy gets you Starbase 39-Sierra, and Ambassador gets you DS9).
