Indeed you can! Not everything of course, but here's a short list of things you can find on the exchange:
DS9 Costume Pack
Ferengi costume pieces
C-Store environment suit costumes (saving up for a KDF myself)
Mirror Universe ships
All lockbox and Lobi ships & shuttles (all KDF players need a Widow in my opinion )
Also Fleet ships and refits count, because you can choose to use nothing but EC and Fleet marks to gain 200k Fleet credits for a refit, or 20k and buy your ship modules on the exchange.

If you're asking for stable vendor prices for these items, I'm certain the answer is NO. The only way EC works for these special items is with a free market determining prices. It creates a market of people who will grind dil or purchase Zen to get things they can sell for EC.

Playable romulans could only happen in near future if this faction is introduced as a pvp faction that can advance in rank only through pvp. Because otherwise will require just an insane amount of time to do it. After almost 3 years from release Klingon faction doesn't have yet a full storyline. Many people that only pve may not realize it or don't know/remember how Klingon faction used to be when this game was released.

On the other hand, people that don't like to pvp may change their mind once cryptic introduces a new game model for pvp, more towards territory control with some strategy involved, ranking system (so inexperienced players wint fight with veterans) other than number of kills. This would attract more people not only to pvp, but to the game itself. Just killing npcs gets boring over time... Even if you do it as klingon, fed or romulan. And it's also really easy, how many stfs and fleet action can you do till you have enough, lol?

So cryptic, leave romulans for now (and for that reason anything related to exploration, crafting, doffs, etc) and go into pvp more, there is so much potential for it and it can be done so everybody will like it. Don't forget to add a walkthrough for pvp, lots of the hate for pvp comes from the fact the game is too easy, you do most pve missions just rolling your head on the keyboard, and people new to pvp don't know how to ballance shields, add some resists, etc. a better pvp experience for everybody can only help, even the most hard core pveer, it gives a different perspective, helps the reaction and perception and will improve also pve experience.

# 865 just giving some ideas

I think some new episodes could be fine, and in my opinion, introducing the iconians or the son'na might be a really good point.
Sorry for the mistakes, I'm from spain

You can burn through both sets of content with a couple of weeks of steady playing. Then your options are grinding for Borg gear or grinding for fleet marks. And having a new skin to slap on your avatar isn't going to improve that.

So yes: Desperately needed.

That having been said, I don't want a new FE. I want a new set of missions that can wrap up the stalled out story line the game has had since pretty much the start. Then they can do some nice FEs if they want.

Needs a button to vote on better customer service and GM's that know the game they are supporting and when there is a issue apologize for the problem and offer the paying customer something for there trouble since they didnt get what they paid. Also will state due to such issues i will no longer be a gold as I see no point in paying for stuff that i dont get. I paid almost 100 dollars worth of zen in the last 3 days. to buy stuff and 2 of the things i bought, 1 malfunctioned and doesnt work properly and the other doesnt have the costumes it is supposed to have. The GM's when filing the ticket responded and said oh well sorry but nothing we can do about it. Thanks for being screwed by us." Sorry for bad language but i am a very unhappy customer and to be told sorry we wont do anything for you or about it is absolutely unacceptable".

# 868 The Romulan Question....
09-14-2012, 07:06 PM
I hope they realize, when people say "Romulans as a playable race", they are reffering to Romulans as an entirely different faction, not just a Romulan BO or a Romulan Capt. Romulans with Romulan ships and crews, a Romulan Cap planet, the works.

Well I played for the feature episodes. I might be in the minority but I found grinding gear just for the sake of grinding gear exceedingly boring and it wasn't star trek. I loved the story missions especially the cardassian ones, but yeah i havent touched the game much since completing them

I'd like to see the Sona added to the KDF.

As for the Romulans, someone mention Garidians from "A Final Unity", they are an offshoot of the Romulans that share Romulan technology such as ships which are red rather than green. If a Romulan faction were to ever be created, I'd love to see these guys added to the Romulan faction. Them, the Remans and Hirogen are who I'd look forward to playing.

But to me the most important thing in this game is new missions and story, something in very high demand for both factions and something Cryptic doesn't seem to be doing anything about. Most players I think were attracted to this game for the story not the fancy ships, OP items or anything. It's the story and without a regular influx of story each month people are bored. Most of my friends aren't even playing the game at this point, I only log in to do some dailies and that's it.

This is a serious problem Cryptic and something you really need to fix. Dedicate a few members in your team to do fortnightly missions for both factions, continue the Romulan arc, Fek'lhri arc, a new Klingon house arc etc. Release 1 federation and 1 Klingon mission a fortnight. If a foundry creator can do a mission in a few days in their spare time surely a dev could do one in 2 weeks.

I agree that is bull, I have a friend who lost a heap of keys and they never got anything back for them. Basically we're being stolen from and Cryptic/PWE really needs to do something about this. It's very unacceptable, especially for a business where you pay money for goods and services which are rarely delivered.
