It was not until CO was close to the 500 day mark till people new what the reward was. In CO it was an inventory bag, I am not sure what it will be in this game but I am pretty sure it want be anything from the c-store.
Isn't that the ship with the funny rings in the back, that looks like it was put together with spare bits of plastic and plumbing parts? If so, I have to disagree - the only way I'd want to see that thing is as target practice.
Actually it might be viable for then to allow at 500 days access to captured enemy wessels, I mean vessels. It would allow mostly federation or klingon players to use other ships and they would gain more $$$$ from it.
500 day vet reward, allow suck players to create a character of the opposite faction, for either faction. Aka If you want to play an Orion on the Federation side you can (have access to both KDF and Fed uniform options) likewise if you want to create a Vulcan on the KDF side you could as well. However, just one character total (not 1 per side).
Then for 600 day vet rewards they can give those us 1 cap tier ship from the opposing faction.
