Can anyone help me with this?

I'm wondering how exactly the "discount" works.
(requiring 1 module instead of 4)

Say I bought the Gladius way back at LtCmdr from the C-Store.
The Fleet version of the escort retrofit will cost 4 modules. No discount, right?
What about if I had the Retrofit for 200K fleet credits? Does that count?

Also...
Say I had the Galaxy Retrofit (T5) and wanted the fleet retrofit.
Would I get the module discount on that?

From what the requisitions person at ESD shows, I don't.

Anyone who can shed some light on how this clusterfu... system... works, I would appreciate it

The discount only applies for c-store ships you bought the VA (Tier 5) versions of. Gladius no, but the Galaxy should only show 1 module in the ship requisitions screen instead of 4 (Fleet Exploration Cruiser Retrofit). if it doesn't I'd suggest filing a support ticked on that.

The difference is if you got the Galaxy from old VA token or bought it account wide. If you bought it, you will get discount. If you have it from token you have to pay 4 modules. That works only for VA ships. You won't get any discount for buying lower tier ships.

Thanks for the replies

I got the Gal-R waaaay back when it was first released. I'm positive it was a C-Store purchase, but it was a long time ago. I could be wrong.
I'll submit a ticket then.

So... the only fleet ships eligible for discounts are:
Defiant
Armitage
Galaxy
Intrepid

And apparently none from KDF?

This whole thing reminds me of the horse from Ren & Stimpy.

Is it the exception?

If you purchased it at Tier 5 you get a discount. RA or VA doesn't matter the T5 does.

Kinda sucks you don't get a discount on the Gladius.
I was once DKnight1000, apparently I had taken my own name so now I'm DKnight0001.
If I ask you a question it is not an insult but a genuine attempt to understand why.
When I insult you I won't be discreet about it, I will be precise and to the point stupid.

If the cstore ship you have has a fleet version it will cost only one module not 4.

The real scam is charging 500 zen for each module. That makes *ANY* non-cstore fleet ship cost more than a high end zen ship that is much, much more capable due to boff stations AND a console.

2000 zen to give an already underperforming tier 5 ship (like the VoquV) an extra engineering console slot (that does nothing for the ship) and .1 more shield modifier plus 3k more hull (which means it still dies to the npc supertorpedo damage bullcrap if it ever hits the hull).

Its not worth 2000 zen. At all. Upgrading a fleet ship should cost MAX 500 zen and existing cstore ships purchased should get the same ******n upgrade that the lockbox ships got. We PAID for the cstore ships too.
