I buy and spend C-Points in the C-Store all the time... and I like the ship refits... but I just bought an Advanced Science Vessel for 800, only to discover it was not a refit... I love the look of the default issued Research ships, and refits let me buy the advanced versions and still look like the issued ones... except with the Advanced Research Vessel... I bought it and if I want to use it, I am stuck with it's ugly 90 percent saucer look, please make it customizable like a refit so I can use its advanced features, like additional crew, extra BO and console slot, but still customize it to look like the cool issued science ships... please
EDIT: And where is the Sehlat Cub pet? Other fleet members say they see it in C-Store, but it does NOT show in my C-Store... I bought it on another character and would pay for it again on my new main character, but its just NOT there
Its been said many times here but I'm going to say it again... you have to read the description of what you're buying. What you bought was the commander level Advanced research vessel, which is the lower level version of the RA refit. They did the same thing with the Advanced Heavy Cruiser. I don't know why you'd buy it if you didn't like the look of it on top of not reading about it.
