But basically it will be like 5+ months before anyone will get these new T5 fleet ships?

So the good news is it gives you enough time to grind for the requirements. The bad news is you still won't be able to afford it when your fleet reaches the appropriate tier.

Unlikely due to the time gating on this, each project takes 24 hours to complete once started anyway

Yeah, I thought buying the modules would be it, but I guess we need fleet credits and our fleet ship yard has to be a certain tier. I don't mind taking the time to earn fleet credits, but I wish they gave each individual fleet member more opportunities to gain them.

Have to say, this is VERY disappointing.

Not usually one to complain but, right up until yesterday, the understanding was that obtaining a fleet ship would involve A: Purchase of fleet ship token and B: lots of grinding.

We knew this - and whilst the grinding involved to obtain the ships was agreed (by most) to be undoubtedly tiresome, the method of obtaining fleet ships was generally accepted.

And now, hours after the much awaited season six appears, we find out that, if we want these ships, we have to grind for months (seriously, if you really want one of those fleet ships as quickly as possible you won't be able to do ANYTHING that doesn't result in earning fleet credits) AND have to throw a bucketload of cash at it. All for some extra console/BOFF slots.

Kudos though, Cryptic, and your PWE masters, - you saw how desperate we all were to see our favourite lower-tier ships at T5, and you're milking that cash-cow that for all it's worth.

I suddenly find myself preferring the game as it was yesterday, BEFORE season six.

The only thing(s) 'under siege' are the player's bank accounts.

And will very likely be cancelling my Gold Sub - only had it for about two weeks, but my reasons for upgrading evaporated in the last 24 hours.

Nothing Cost Cash, unless you're impatient and have to have it now. Me I can wait a few days, best Zen Store Buy until you're able to farm near 50k easy a day is Character Slots anyways... but then we get back to the Time Factor....

For Me, my 24 pull me 46,080 Dilithium a Day before I play. Granted it takes a hour or two to log and do those two Dailies 24 times.
You work 1-2 hours daily for what ? So you get a virtual currency ? And how ? By an exploit (I am sure you will argue it's not really an exploit, still I doubt it is an intended game feature, if I was PWE I'd just nuke it - but perhaps they are smaretr and this is still part of some devious scheme of subduing some people into virtual slavery). Investigate Officer Daily you could not do on 24 characters if there wasn't that insta-autocomplete mission chain we all know of. This cannot be a norm by any way. Thus your peculiar case and argument does not apply.

Wrong, it DOES cost cash. Someone has to buy the zen that they sell you for dilithium. Just because it isn't YOUR cash, doesn't mean Cryptic/PW isn't charging cash for things they've already SOLD to the player for cash.

Season sux... er six is just the wake up call some people needed. It took a hammer between the eyes to show people just where this Cryptic/PW marriage has taken STO.

If I am right, there has never been said that they will cost MUCH less, only that they will cost less. Only wishful thinking on our part might have added that MUCH.
