# 1 NX? Any point?

Is there any good reason for buying the NX from the c store? (The ship, not the registry tag)

Grappler. It's an easy excuse for a tractorbeam.

Yes yes It's obviously better than starter ships but is it worth spending zen on?

Are you an ENTERPRISE fan? If so, then that is all the reason you really need... Most of what is on the C-Store is there just to give us options. Buy it because you like it.

If you are into alts you can get a lot of use out of it. Plus you dont have to change ships the moment you hit the next rank. Some people actually like a challenge and keep using a ship until they simply cant anymore.

The only reason to buy it would have to be about the grappler. Unfortunately most people are out of the tier one ship with in hours. If you own any of the other tier 1 c-store ships then use those in the mean time since any ship is better then the starter ship.

Also the NX comes with an extra Tactical Console, so gives you a tad bit extra firepower. But the grapler can come in handy if you don't have a tractor beam and need one later on.

I think no, not at all. Since in STO you level so fast that you "grow out" of your NX within hours and aside from RPing or fun you'll never need it ever again.

Let's face it: The basic flaw of the game design is that the only thing that counts at all is DPS. The more damage you can pump out, the more useful you are. Since the NX class is considerably weaker than anything else upon hitting Tier 2 after one or two hours of gameplay there is no reason to use it anymore.

It could change if they at some point decide that even lower ships have a purpose (since in Star Trek, whenever there is a fleet task we see light cruisers alongside Galaxies. The wholw tier-system just means a lack of diversity in endgame (since everyone is using the same ship because it's the best) and a plain rip-off for people buying lower tier ships for zen)
