Great. Not only is the bundle overpriced, but you guys released a reskin of the Odyssey cruiser while still not delivering on the new escort?

Btw, regarding the escort: could it please be a ranked up version of the Fleet Escort? It would be nice to have the engineering slots. They're a lifesaver against the Borg.

Not delivering on the new escort? If you're talking about the Aquarius, it was never supposed to be anything other than a combat pet for now.

Anyway, correct me if I'm wrong, but the calls for nerfs remind me of when people were requesting that the bugship be nerfed. I forget hwo explained it, but since people (in most vases) had to pay money for a chance at one, for them to nerf it could be legally interpreted as a "Bait-and-switch".

I think nerfing the flagships now that they're actually out and purchased would even more easily be considered a bait-and-switch... considering they are directly purchased.

TL;DR: Expect buffs to the flagships, if anything. Don't expect nerfs. They could get in trouble if they do.
No one wanted it to have to be nerf'd after it went live....Quite the opposite really....That's why if you scroll down to the tribble threads and see how they wanted people to test it prior to release (and also even told people to basically shut up and and test it or stop posting) so people did and reported bugs, possible OP and other problems to make sure it doesn't get nerf'd later. Even Branflakes himself said that the SA might be OP..... Yet despite the issues that still remain that even the DEVs acknowledged they released them anyway.

So if they get nerf'd after this point can't really blame the people here as they all tried to help get them stable BEFORE release yet the DEVs ignored everyone.

No, when I was reading about the escort classes and variants on the star trek wiki or academy (I can't remember which) they said there was a new escort coming out which had been announced back in February or something.

When Al first talked about it, it was suppose be flyable so you could go where a ship could not go.

But the Odyssey was announced early to mid year, last year. It was from the contest to design the next Enterprise. They /had/ to deliver on that one before one they announced last month.

Is it sad that...

My all Purple MK VIII equipt Defiant...

Could easily blast all 6 of these whales clean out of the sky?

The C-Store is a waste of money and just not worth it... No think you Cryptic, I can do better... MUCH better, on a Teir 4 Captain ship outfitted with all Rares and Ultra Rares from the C-Store...

Of course... when you give out Quest Rewards left and right, that are selling for 50K - 100K easily on the Exchange, and the missions are repeatable... allowing you to buy all sorts of max level gear for your newest FREE SHIPS.... yea, no thank you on that C-Store...

Honestly.. .

I thought about doing the Sao Paulo refit on my Defiant.

But its not needed, and just a waste of money... I'm doing JUST FINE without it!

So thank you Cryptic; I've found I can truly enjoy playing it and not have to pay you a single penny to do so!

Thank you, for the FREE GAME!

Rumor is that it will be an Admiralty Tier version of the Akira... only playable at the T5+ Admiral ranks.

Rumor also that it will only be available from the C-Store... for a grand low, low low price of only ... your entire monthly pay check! >/rolls eyes...

Gotta love the Odyssey I'm thinking about buying the tactical version for my alt, not only because of how cool the Aquarius sounds, but because of how the Odyssey looks.

This is a company, not a charity. the only thing you are supporting is a continuation of selling reskins with no customization at high prices. You buying it causes the high prices. I don't understand why people can't grasp that.
