If what I saw was any indication, Cryptic raked in a healthy chunk of change last night. Practically every Galaxy Class ship I saw was wearing the Venture skin. I sat at ESD for 15-20mins and watched them pop in and out one after another.
I know the forums here aren't really a representation of the majority of the community, but I am curious. How many of us bought the Venture yesterday?
I was sitting in my Dreadnought just outside DS9 with about four others.
Yes, call me weird, but I'm just using the neck part of the Venture on my Galaxy, and it looks fantastic!
One of the other reasons for the purchase (this is going to incite anger I'm sure) is for the extra Science officer slot. Now all my main characters (see below) contribute at least one ability to the ship.
