I just noticed the new ship variants for both the Federation and the KDF are up on Tribble. I'm really excited that such things as T5 Novas and a Defiant with 5 tac consoles will be acquirable by earning fleet credits and leveling up your fleet base.
I am concerned, however, that certain ships do not (yet) have "fleet" versions. The Prometheus and Excelsior, in particular, are not represented: does this mean that two of my favorite ships are eventually going to be at a disadvantage compared to the ships with an extra console slot? Or, will "fleet" versions of those eventually arrive?
Then again, Oddys and bortas have an extra console slot already...
A part of me loves this, but on the other hand I wonder if ships like these are exactly what should be saved for Tier 6...though I'd have no problem with them still being unlockable through fleet base work.
One further question: many of the ships require 20,000 points and 1 other item. What is that other item and how do you get it?
