Theres the discription IN GAME when selecting Phaser Spinal Lance. It changes what the weapon does but cleary says "When Saucer is Sperated" etc.
And that discriptions been in the game for months far as I recall. So, don't count on anything. They may have washed there hands on ships they already made their money on was my point I guess. I really want to get into a Fleet ship. But when I count the Money already spent on C Store Ships and only 1 of them has a fleet version, I feel...annoyed.
