With the information that Gold members will not be getting anymore ship tokens after the rank of Rear Admiral, I got to thinking of a interesting idea on how to incorporate a way to get ships past Rear Admiral.

This would involve the creation of the Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards in orbit of Mars.

Once a character is promoted to the rank of Vice Admiral they will get access to the Fleet Yards were they will be allowed to "Craft" a Vice Admiral Level ship ( and beyond ).

These ships will be brand new concepts and considered to be "prototypes".

These ships will be created with the use of "Schematics for each modular section", "Resources", "Doff's", "Dilithium", "Energy Credits" and "Time".

These ships will be unique in that there class ( Science Vessel, Escort, Cruiser ) will be determined only what there "main hull" will be or how "you" configure it with the combination of the "modular schematics".

Your imagination would be limited to the parts made available to you. Silver members would only get the very basic parts while Gold members would get everything made available to them.

Ships create using this method would have labeled "Prototype Escort, Prototype Crusier, or Prototype Science Vessel" but above that would be the class name that you decided to give it. So for example you build a "Prototype Science Vessel" and you name it the "U.S.S. Raging Queen" It would show that the class name as "Raging Queen Class Prototype Science Vessel".

These prototype ships will be radical in design and will incorporate elements from some of the "unseen" ships in Star Trek.

Just another idea I had I wanted to share with the Dev's.

Might be worth asking for again. New hires might be assigned to work on it.

New hires are doing nothing but finding ways to make Everyone pay for this new F2P model. If you haven't been keeping abreast of the changes to , well everything, the last thing they are gonna do is give us a way to get something for free they just managed to make us pay for.

All subscribers are getting the jerk around, at least in CO the subs get something worth paying for, here in STO, they are figuring ways to makes us leave. or at least that's what it seems to a lot of players.

It's half empty as well

I quite like this idea, as said above, similar things have been asked for before but it can't hurt to ask again.

I'll cross my fingers and hope I can finally make a Galaxy class with a bigger focus on sci powers.

considering the retrofits are originally tier 4, you should be able to take your tier 4 ship, go to mars with your retrofit token and make it happen. shouldn't need to be a whole other ship your getting, should be the same ship you flew a tier ago.

How about you craft Dilith and buy the ships? See? still not paying anything, not asking devs to work and change things that don't need changed. Let them work on content and bug fixes.

Seriously, what's the problem with Gold accounts? If you are a lifer you get it, if you aren't you get to play the game for free. Seriously, if you want to give Cryptic money do it. This criticism of Gold members is just crap considering most people posting would rather be free. Learn some stuff, any F2P game has to make a store worth spending in, we don't see it yet but it will have to happen for the game to survive.


Va ships are just a example.

I'd love the idea of being able to design and build my own starship. Unfortunately, I can't see it happening with the focus being on making people buy stuff from teh C-Store.
