I already have 2 characters that fly escorts and both are past Commander. So it doesn't matter that this is one of my favorite ships aesthetically. It's useless to me, and will be useless to anyone else who buys it after the few weeks it takes to level up to Captain. So all that money for what is essentially a console? No thanks.

I've been a faithful customer and spent more money on the C-Store than I would have with a monthly fee, but these lower-tier refits are nothing more than consoles and a costume sold as "New Ships!" Sorry, but this kind of development is way off base from what the players really want, and they'll only become more disenfranchised after they get over the excitement of something new and realize you've just sold them another costume/console combo for another $10 bucks.

Beautiful modelling and design, my friends. Your ship designer is truly an artist and working hard to really stay true to what people want to see. His beautiful work deserves far better than the ill-conceived product you're peddling.
This. I agree. Why not make a T5 variant. Much more people would buy it.

Thirded, or is it Fourthed? Either way, I support this idea.

Nonsense, if anything it would give players an excuse to buy and use the lower tier ships! You'd be surprised how many fans the Oberth has and wish to fly it into and defeat hoards of enemies. I for one would love to take a Connie to Ker'rat and recreate "The Undiscovered Country".

"To be or not to be...." KDF ****'s. :p

Whoa, Necroed thread.

Anyhow, I would love if they added a new pylon option similar to the one the DSSV got, that allowed you to have an extended nacelle that gave it similar to the Akira-class.

This x5; and it even makes sense from a bottom-line perspective--more players will buy costumes that can be viably used throughout all of the game, rather than just a brief stint in the leveling process.

I think Cryptic is fundamentally opposed to making good-looking low tier ships available as Tier 5 ships.

So we'll probably get the Golfball Retrofit eventually ,but that's it.

Holy Zombies Batman!
