It is the second member race ship without its own Bridge. The Vulcan D'Kyr doesn't have its own bridge either. It really makes me mad, when the Ferangi get a Bridge but the Vulcans or Caitians do not. I mean, we have seen the inside of Vulcan Ship on the TV show. So what is the hold up?

I would like to know why the cost is 2000 instead of the 1600 like all the other carriers? The Karfi is 1600 and the Marauder is 1600 and the veranus (Not really a carrier) is 1600. I don't see anything so special about this ship vs the Vo'Quv that warrents a 400 cp premium.

Simple, The feds have been whining that they want a carrier for so long why not have it at 2000cp when they know people are overwhelmingly going to buy it. Hell I saw six of them around Donatu system alone in the maybe 3 minutes I was sitting there.

omg people just stop complaining! If you want to buy this ship you will buy it and if not you wont and its simple as that! It costs 2000 cp because its unique to the fed side.

For as much as they're asking for the carrier I think it should be packaged like the D'kyr was. You get the ship plus the vanity pet of the caution fighter as a playable fighter for shuttle missions like the vault. Other wise 2000 is a little too steep.

STO is (obviously) not World of Tanks, or EvE or WoW..

Star Trek fans are diffrent that thoose audiences, and as such requires diffrent treatment and approach when it comes to content, items and pricing, and from what I can tell, they are doing a pretty lousy job so far...
Exactly!!! STO players are not like all those elitists who play those games.

Were more like hamsters who tread the daily dilithium grind wheel.

We also like playing dress up with dolls, dollhouses (ship interiors), and things.

SHHH!!! that's our little secret Been a Star Trek fan since 1987 ever since I was introduce to Jean Luc, and the Enterprise D (which is still and always be my favorite) Before March of this year I was on the old Two Year Subscription, I've only bought the thing I like from the C-Store which includes the new Carrier. One thing if you've been here long enough you know Cryptic has sales which will drop the price of ships, the last sale wasn't to long ago if I remember correctly. If not mistaken again it was a 20% sale on all items with the exception of the DS9 Bundle.

1. its not unique to the fed side by any definition of the term. klingons have had carriers for a long time.
2. stop accusing people of 'whining' that only shows you have nothing of value to add to the conversation

there should be atleast 1 free carrier.. its just bad to limit an entire class/style of playing to PAYers or GRINDers.. some of us actually have a job , reallife and a family.. we coudl effort the new ship BUT soemof us put our money in other things than that.. maybe like outfits ?!

also it is not fair to give only people the ability to use a carrier that PAY or hardcore grind.. especially with the increasing price of cpoints...

on the KDF side there is a fair deal.. you can atleast play a carrier without buying cpoints...

im not complaining here because im happy with my ships i have.. i just say ist not really fair for other people.. no matter if it makes money.. its just not fair ^^


but hey ... shortly after release almost every 2nd scientist ive seen had a caitian carrier already.. well the PWE moneymachine seems to work ..

just to bad that the game becomes Perfect World 2 now...

as ive seen scientists have been nerfed alot, STFS got harder due to the respawn cooldown... and so on...

hopefully there wil be a change of things soon.. because otherwise star trek will become a grinder game..and then it sucks for all of us trekkies...


and cryptic .. if u want to make STO to a grinder game only.. please give roleplayers the ability to get the things/items without grinding..lol ( like pressing the "i am a Roleplayer Button" and getting the desired item from a list XD ) :p

I
its unique for the fed side because its the only carrier on the fed side! Klinks have their carriers and feds have only one. And 2000 cp its not expensive because its unique!
