The Fleet Patrol is a nice upgrade, but well worth $20? No.

Well I don't know.. compare the stats to the T5 Tac Escort (Z-Mart Version, which I have owned for quite some time). For giving up the console and -1 to turn rate, I got... stronger hull, stronger shields, more crew, and extra engineering console.

And, I didn't spend a red cent... EC is incredibly easy to come by, and you can buy the fleet modules off the exchange.

This was posted in the last round of 'Ask Cryptic' but was not answered. I think it's a fair point so I've decided to repost it here (if somewhat less whiny):
---

I, and many others, have previously bought the Nomad costume for the Federation Star Cruiser, as well as costumes for other ships before they were taken down from the C-Store.

Considering that we've already spent money on these ships (440 C-Store Points in my case) could we not get the Fleet versions of our ships for fewer Fleet Ship Modules? I (foolishly) thought that we would by default but looking on my Starbase's ship selector screen we will still have to shell out for 4 FSMs, which I think is a little unfair considering that we paid for the costumes that are now they're being included in Fleet versions 'for free'.

Though C-Store 'Skins' only cost a fraction of the price for C-Store Ships... If there was a discount, it would have to be only a fraction of the C-Store discount... (say one module instead of 3 modules...) If the price of the 'Skin' is less then the price of a 'module', then this wouldn't be worth the trouble for PWE/Cryptic to implement...

100 C-Store points = 125 Zen, so 440 would equal 550 - just over 1 module, which was the 'discount' that I expected there to be.

I think it would be a smart move to make it so that any C-Store ship purcahse results in needing less modules. I would not boycott fleet ships if it were this way.

For instance, the Scourge Destroyer is a captain level ship costing 1500 zen, even if I were to purchase it, i'd still need to pay 2000 zen (plus time, and time equals money to grind for the other stuff) to get the fleet modules to purcahse the fleet version. Why not cut out one (or three) fleet modules, since I already purchased the ship. I don't care that its not T5.... Quite frankly if I buy a T5 ship, i'm not going to buy a fleet equivalent, so I don't give a rats ass about the discount there. However if for the lower level ships we were to get a discount if we purchase the zen store equivalent of the fleet ship, then i'd not only buy the fleet variant to use it at end game, but the zen store version for use at that level. Otherwise I am buying a captain level ship that will last me a few days and getting little benefit from it after that.

I agree with the C-Store skins reducing the cost for Fleet ships. I bought the Hephaestus skin for the MVAE and I still have to pay 1 module for the fleet version... I should be able to get it for just fleet credits for having bought the skin.

If it's just one module... it's really not that hard to get. They're only around ~5 mil EC usually, probably even less in dil given the current exchange rates.

If Cryptic aren't going to give discounts to those of us that own C-Store starships under Tier 5 that have a fleet version, what makes you think they're going to give us a discount for having a skin?

Not the point. Point is I already spent money on the ship and I would have been fine with paying the one fleet module, but then they tied the skins to fleet ships. Ive already purchased the skin, I shouldnt have to spend any real money on the modules at all now..
