Your lvl 40 ships work just fine at lvl 50.

The only way to get Fleet Credits is to contribute to fleet projects, so yes to get any ships from a fleet store you have to be part of a fleet.

That said, while the fleet versions of ships tend to be better compared to their non-fleet versions, The difference isn't that significant. From Cryptics point of view, any Tier 5 (admiral/general) ship should do you just fine.

As for more C-store Ships. Cryptic is working on new ships all the time, so no doubt a new ship will eventually come to the C-store. Not sure when, since I think most of their Development is currently involved in the 3rd anniversary I would imagine, but Supposedly there is an Andorian Escort do early 2013

Just find a fleet willing to sell you a ship for Fleet Marks or Dilithium. Both can be obtained without being in a fleet and most fleets are more than happy to trade a single provision for them. Join, contribute to an open project, buy the ship, leave.

On Fed side, while all of my characters are in a small or my own one-man fleet, I've been able to obtain any T4-shipyard ship that way.

You don't get a Free VA Retrofit anymore?

That's the 600-day sub/lifetime perk, I believe. I know I got one and used it for a Tac-R.

Soooo.... the Breen ship... free awesome, did i mention free?

And for a long time before they brought out the new age pay ships the fleet patrol, a level 40 ship had me on top of the pvp pve world so it's not always about ship level it's about, build, skill, and knowledge.

But then again a game will not change to cater to a subculture in the gaming community so in this instance you will need to evolve around the game, it won't evolve around you.

The last few years it was free for everyone (the 1st one at least). Once you hit VA you got a free retrofit. If they removed that perk, that really sucks.

There's the real-money-only Steamrunner if you've already got all the Zen ones.
