I wanted to help clarify some confusion over the Fed Mirror Ships:

Mirror ships have a similar name to their prime universe counterpart. That is, an Assault Cruiser is and Assault cruiser ? They are tactical-ish. However, they have the opposite costume. So?


Mirror Assault Cruiser:
  • Prime Universe Star Cruiser Costumes (with mirror texture).
  • Prime Universe Assault Cruiser Stats (boff, console, etc).
  • Prime Universe Star Cruiser Crew Size (matches larger costume)

Mirror Star Cruiser:
  • Prime Universe Assault Cruiser Costumes (with mirror texture).
  • Prime Universe Star Cruiser Stats (boff, console, etc).
  • Prime Universe Assault Cruiser Crew Size (matches smaller costume)

Note, these ships are equivalent in power to in-game rear-admiral Dilithium ships. They effectively give Federation players 3 new costume options (and one texture option) for those ships. Klingons get a whole new ?Star Cruiser-like? configuration in their Mirror Vorcha, but it is still equivalent to a Dilithium ship. As such, they have a better chance to drop than high-end Lock Box ships, like the Tholian Orb Weaver.


Mirror ships are confusing. There are a few errors on the Blog we are straightening out now. Sorry for the confusion.

Geko, I don't suppose you feel like swapping the Lt Com Eng and Ensign Tac on the Orb Weaver around while you're at it?

It's not so much that I've paid for it, as that is seems like it would fit. I mean Terran Empire, Imperial Class, just seems to go to together. Overall I'm hoping to get a Mirror Assault Cruiser, I love the Spacewhale design, it's probably my favorite of the Cryptic Made ships on the Fed Side.

How I feel about the two Tholian ships at least:

Tholian Orb Weaver
The two Ensigns makes this thing awkward. I'd much rather see these rolled into either an Lt Tac, Lt Sci, or Lt Universal. As is, the LtC Universal just seems like it'll never find a really good home.

Tholian Recluse Carrier
While a nice unique theme, the two ensigns make this one awkward too. As is, the Cmd Universal is even harder to find a good home for than the LtC on the Orb Weaver.

I was hoping I'd being expanding my list of ships that came out of a box, looking like this may not be the case.

So, for example, If I unlock the Fleet Star Crus, can I use it with the Sovereign skin?

Thanks for all info.

The Tholian carrier looks really nice. And the Fighter too.

About the Mirror Universe ships, looks good too.


The Tholian Lockbox are well served with good ships. Good.

But I missed the price of the lobi store.

It's made worse by the fact that apart from the uni slots, you only get a tac ensign. I'm going back to waiting on the Vesta or alleged Breen sci ship.

Q: Will players be able to use unlocked C-store costume parts on the mirror ships?

A: Yes. If a ship shares the same skeleton, it automatically unlocks for all. Thus, the Rhode Island Costume works on the Nova, Nova Retro and Nova Fleet. So the same applies here.

Note, you won?t be able to put a prime universe Assault Cruiser Imperial Costume on a Mirror Universe Assault Cruiser. But you can put a Prime Universe Nomad costume on a Mirror Universe Assault Cruiser.

Inversely, if you own a Mirror Assault Cruiser, you will be able to put the Mirror Universe material/texture on a Prime Universe Star Cruiser.


Bugger! That was confusing

Most definitely, and making the Uni tac seems like too much tac on both of them.
