Sure, its not difficult to make.

The problem is asking people to pay them more money right now, when they are... failing to deliver to their paying customers in a big way.

We all know they're busy with F2P, but that didn't stop them for charging for subscriptions.. or even asking for more micropayments.

If it took a lunchbreak to make, how about a nice "We're sorry for sucking so bad" gift to everyone?

But its pretty clear that the bottom line is far ahead of happy customers at this point.

I gotta admit, it's a cute little bugger. And I do give points for making it available to BOTH factions (for a change). However, I will pass on this, thank you very much. Until Cryptic gets its act together and starts listening to its playerbase I will not support the C(ash)-Store.

Well its more then what is expectet and announced.. wich is "absolutley nothing".

And it at least makes a little more sense then the (still most useless c-store item ever) exocomp pet...

If any of the pets other than Horta allies actually did something other than follow you I might be tempted

WTF! Wasn't there suppose to be a "Saber" and "Raider" today? Instead, they give us this POS "Gekli" pet? What is this, WoW?

Cute item. Questions:
  • Can anyone post a screen shot so I can get a Gekli-to-Ship size comparison?
  • Does the space slug stack with the other shuttle pets, I mean can you have multiple pets following you around?
  • Can the little critter keep up with Borg Engines in sector space?
It could be a fun item to buy, however I'm on C-Store Boycott until I see how you handle the current Tribble T5 Excelsior Nerf.

I too would love a Porthos... Ah... Remember this?

No, it can't keep up with Borg engines. It even falls behind at 9.97. I think it's max speed equals a starter ship around warp 7.

It does stack with other shuttles, and it works as any other shuttle pet, so it can't keep up unfortunately.



Love the pet, I just wish it would keep up with me. I wish ANY of the shuttles would keep up with me.
