So I own the Dacoit, the Corsair and the Marauder c-store ships.
To get the fleet Corsair retrofit I still need to get 4 ship modules...
Dislike the forum theme? Try THIS. Dislike the STO home page? Try THIS.
Devs, need Fleet Orion Marauder and Dacoit please! :-)

Using - Bulwark, Voth Fighter. Favs - Fleet Corsair, Mogh, Bastion, Nicor, JHEC, JAS
Some others - Orion Marauder, Chel Grett, Guramba, Risian Corvette, Risian Cruiser

Would not buy any of these ships period. The extra console slot is not worth the $20 you want for a single character unlock. Also I advise anyone thinking of getting any of the paid for retrofits to ses if there is a cstore version first. If so buy that instead and save some money!

All these are, are just old ships rehashed with a new skin that probably took 5 mins to alter the look of the maco shield into a ship skin, gave them an extra console slot and buffed the shields/hull by some margin not even worth talking about, and then you want us to rebuy them back in a maximum profit minimum effort move?

Seriously, you can not be serious!

Where is our discount for the costumes you took out of the cstore and then resell them back to us as fleet ships even though I already own all of them?

We were told multiple times in multiple places this would not be the case from the very start, yet there were some people who kept spreading the rumor we would because they simply refused to read any of the provided links stating otherwise.

So that post left me with three Fed questions, one KDF error, and one recently realized KDF suggestion.

Fed Questions:
When can we expect to see the Fleet Advanced Escort in shipyards?
Will the Fleet Advanced Escort be able to use the M.V. console?
Will the M.V.A.E provide a discount for the Fleet Advanced Escort?

KDF Error:
The Fleet Ning'tao Retrofit is listed as Norgh, and has Norgh as the only costume (Shipyard does show it as Ning'tao, and has the Ning'tao costume by default).

KDF Suggestion:
Add a Norgh Retrofit, and turn the Fleet Ning'tao Retrofit into a Fleet Norgh Retrofit. This would keep the ship consistent with all the other S6 Retrofits (none of which unlock a costume).
Add in a Fleet Hegh'ta or Fleet B'rel Retrofit to fill in the need for a Fleet version of a T5 BoP.

If I want to go get the ship from one of the ship vendors, besides helping my fleet get the shipyards leveled to the appropriate level and have the required fleet credits/fleet ship modules, do I also need to make sure the fleet has enough Fleet Ship Provisions in the shipyard? Or do the Fleet Ship Provisions make it cheaper and/or allow us to get around using a fleet ship module?

Sorry if this seems simple to everyone else, but I understood everything else from the blog just not the Fleet Ship Provisions. Heck when you go to the ship vendors (at least the way it was a couple/few days ago) the only criteria they list are the amount of fleet credits/ship modules and the level of your fleet's shipyard. I haven't seen anything about provisions being needed to purchase fleet ships until now.

thanks in advance.
Shipyard must be at appropriate level and stocked with provisions. Provisions don't make it cheaper -- they are *required* to get the ship. In order to purchase the ship it takes up 1 provision and 200,000 fleet credits for a "regular" version or 20,000 fleet credits *and* 1-4 fleet modules if it's a "Fleet" ship. It's 4 fleet modules ($20) unless you already own the C-Store Tier 5 version which reduces it to 1 fleet module ($5).

As for the cost of these ships as per-character unlocks -- yes, they're expensive, but less so than lock box ships that were Cryptic's first attempt at testing character unlock ships. ($20 is ~16 master keys)

What my subject line said... I can understand not having a Tier 5 TOS constitution, but what about the refit? And the other two models that came with it?

I get this too, using firefox. Loaded the page up in chrome just fine. But no images in FF for me... get an error 400 if I try to view the image directly.

Well I won't' be spending any more money until Crypitc or PWE or whoever deals with the game fixes the bugs with KDF lore and the Second Wave mission it is getting to the point where I cannot even be bothered to play the game because of this so if it is not resolved soon then it will be bye bye STO and I'll go on to another better game as there is plenty more out there.

What a utter mess the ship system is in, not to mention a complete rip off, Cryptic are just incapable of doing anything right.

KDF Lore should be fixed by Thursday. "Second Wave" is complete-able solo, from what I've been told.
