Your reward for reaching max level is for you to open your wallet and pay cryptic for the ship.

Surely that's the best kind of reward anyone would want, isn't it?

LOL, variations on a theme. I just said something similar:

I hate how entitled kids these days are...

At launch there WERE NO special level 50 ships (level 51 back then). The ships you received when you made admiral at 40 were the best ships in the game. This is STILL THE CASE. The RA level 40 ships ARE TIER 5 ships, and the ships available on the Ctore are also TIER 5 SHIPS. As of yet, there is NO TIER 6!

The game needs to do a better job of explaining this to people.


The fleet escort, assault cruiser, and DSV are still the top of the line ships for PvE and PvP. They are not underpowered compared to their Cstore counter parts. The only thing the Cstore ships grant you are more cosmetic options, or a special ability (Transwarp for the Excel, Lance for the Dread, etc). By and large these new abilities are not all that impressive.

At launch the max rank was Rear Admiral. Vice Admiral was added later. So, naturally, there were no VA ships at launch.

I think the better job this game could do is making VA ships available to the player base without costing a dime and leave their store to just selling cosmetic items or account services.

The Oddy is a joke of a ship, especially when being flown by a TAC captain. I can't that saucer sep is going to change anything about it.

I have a tac retrofit (cloak!). I experimented for a long time with it.

I ended up going back to Fleet Escort.


The top ships aren't better, just different.
