please put it in the store as lock box ships are NOT accepted in several major Fleets or any canon action
It's still a canon ship, I just hate the thought of it quickly getting passed by when other ships are released. An Andorian ship, an escort especially, should always be king of the hill. And while I generally do not care for lockbox ships, if this would be the only way to make sure it is always competitive, I am ok with it. Because I am already willing to spend a foolish amount on this ship anyway.
lock box ships are actually WORSE than fleet ships on average
On average? I would say it's close. Sure their are some rough ones in lockboxes, but take a look at some of the KDF fleet stuff, it's pretty bad too. I guess if they make the Andorian ship a C-Store, we can just immediatly star petetioning for a fleet version
