Greetings!

As many of you know, I have been a big proponent of having an in-game method of earning ships that are also sold in the C-Store. Over the last several months we have done an “ok” job of ensuring that new ships we release can be earned either through Level 51 Emblems, or through Level 41 Marks. Yet, there have been some ships that have slipped through the cracks and I’m here to announce that we’ll be making some improvements on this front.

In an upcoming update we will be making some currency changes to the following MT ships. To dispel rumors and cut down on confusion, here’s the details.

Special Shuttlecraft / Fighters – 400 Atari Tokens or Craftable*
  • Delta Flyer
  • Upcoming Fighters (FED and KLG)

Lvl 41 Ships – 1200 Atari Tokens or 500 Marks
  • Nebula Class - Advanced Research Vessel (was previously 200 marks)
  • Excelsior Class - Advanced Heavy Cruiser (was previously not available for marks)
  • Vulcan D’Kyr Science Vessel (includes free token to claim an exclusive flyable Vulcan Shuttlecraft)

Lvl 51 Retrofits – 1200 Atari Tokens or 500 Emblems or Level 51 Free Token
  • Galaxy Exploration Cruiser
  • Intrepid Long Range Science Vessel
  • Defiant Tactical Escort
  • B’rel Bird-of-Prey
  • Varanus Fleet Support Vessel
  • Marauder Patrol Cruiser
  • Kar’Fi Battle Carrier

Lvl 41 KLG Special - 2000 Atari Tokens or 830 Emblems
  • Guramba Siege Destroyer

Lvl 41 FED Special – 2000 Atari Tokens or Refer 5 Friends Reward
  • Galaxy Dreadnaught Cruiser

The following Replica ships remain Atari Tokens only at this time (but that may change in a future update)

Replica Ships – 800 Atari Tokens
  • NX Class
  • TOS Constitution

* The ability to craft shuttlecraft and fighters will become available prior to the end of the “Cloaked Intention” series. Crafting these items will require completing daily crafting quests over numerous days.

NOTE: There is an in game vendor who will downgrade 1:1 - Lvl 51 Emblems to Lvl 41 Marks

Good to know, dstahl. I'm happy to see the Vulcan D’Kyr class will be available via in-game means (and that it comes with the Vulcan pet shuttle as well). I'm also glad to see we have upcoming fighters (I know you've mentioned them before, but it's great to know they'll be craftable).

As far as future shuttles go, will we be seeing more than just the fighters? I would really love to have a SC-4 shuttle (like Admiral Janeway's in Endgame, even if it doesn't come with the ablative armor and cloaking device), along with possibly a Type-9 and an Enterprise Shuttlepod (purely for nostalgia's sake on the last one, really).

Thanks for letting us know about this; I may actually save up to eventually get my Vulcan ship now.

I am truly disappointed at this. Galaxy X remains out-of-game while the Klingon equiv gets an in-game-method.

and yet those who have gone through the trouble to recruit 5 friends would also be disappointed if we changed the program yet again - so this is the compromise. sorry.

I like it but I have a question concerning the Vulcan Shuttlecraft.
1) Do we get the token only if we buy it via CStore or also if we buy it ingame?
2) Will we be able to craft the Shuttle ingame or will we only be able to get it if we bought the D'Kyr (in whatever way)?

The vulcan shuttle is exclusive to owning the D'kyr and cannot be gained any other way. (it is a flyable version of the support craft that docks with the D'kyr ship).

OutSTANDING, Dstahl. This is awesome news.

Thanks for not letting this one drop. I've already bought most of the ships I want via C-Store, but regardless I believe that more choice is better for all.
