I already had the Connie, but am very please to add the new KDF ship.
I had it too, I'm glad others will get to enjoy it as well.
Not to put a downer on things, but toys and trinkets are nice (and they are appreciated) but a better game is the ultimate reward. Steps like this, however will help heal the rift between some players and the devs so like i said, it is appreciated.
I'm ready to come around, still a couple of issues I'd like addressed and if they are, and stuff like this happens occasionally, most of the changes I'm not fond of can be ignored.
