Sorry, not buyin the "we're in discussion" business anymore at this point. :p
That's just me, you go on believing what you want.
I'm thinking the real reason we don't have em yet, is that most likely, all the popular stuff is being held back till after the F2P launch. That way those purchases will either be per character, which is where we are headed btw, or for go for the new C store price increases that are coming, or both.
I just don't want Cryptic to forget there still is interest in these ships and that I want them before any more Gekli pet type stuff. Just being honest about what this particular customer wants for future C store stuff.
But this is only my opinion of things I would buy right now. In case anyone in Cryptic was interested.....
