i dont even realy care about the peng i just wanted to have one incase i wanted to try it out with differnt builds and its jsut stoopid i have to now spend all this time crafting in order to make one bahumbug-
That feds can get even numbered pengs is not an actual problem. Why bother with a mk8 when you can have and use at the same level a mk9?
Um, no...the odd numbers are the bottom end of each bracket.
ie; Lt uses Mk 1 & 2, Lt Cmdr uses Mk 3 & 4, etc all the way to Lt Gen/Vice Adm, who can use Mk 11 and Mk 12, even thou Mk 12 exist only in in-game drops.
So, Feds have access to the slightly superior version of the weapon at every level until it evens out at the Lt Gen/Vice Adm level.
It's just the point.
Just like that they finally adjusted the damage and effects of it about 2 weeks after the Klingons got it, while the Feds had it exclusivly for, what? 2-3 months with increased damage and AOE affects while we were repeatedly told "just use Hazard Emitters and quit complaining."
Yeah...it's the point.
