Will the Andorian ship be in the C-store or a lockbox? I know Cryptic has stated that ships from races in the federation would be in the C-store, but i would like to know for sure.

I do not have any of the lockbox, or lobi ships thus far. But this Andorian ship is a must have for me. I do hope it will be a C-store ship, as i have been buying up Zen.

Any thoughts?

It probably won't go in a lockbox, cause then the Klingons would be flying a Federation ship. Unless they create a Klingon (Lethean? Ferasan?) analog alongside it to put in the same box. Don't think they'll do that, unless they go with their broadsider idea, in which case the Klinkies will stomp their feet and demand to be a carbon copy of the Federation as they've done with the flagship. Admittedly they did go that route with the temporal lockbox, but it's just much easier to make one ship both factions can use.

So C-store, most likely. Or both. There might be two Andorian ships.

Either way, no idea when.

So you think its fair that the Oddy beats the Bort in every single way pretty much except for amount of tac consoles? Klingons who are known for having light more agile ships get the biggest whale in the game.

Anywho...yeah I would say that if/when we get a Andorian ship it will be a c-store ship.

Ya i caught this as well listening to the priority one interviews. In 2 cases they stated Andorian "ships"

My guess 1 cruiser, 1 escort. I also caught the "Kumari" would likely be the broadsider.
The Kumari is the one i want BADLY.

They told us that ships only go in lock boxes if A) they are "too rare" for common use or B) if they do not obviously belong to either of the existing factions. Since they have already set the precedent of having the Vulcan ship in the C-store, the Andorian ship will likely be there as well.

Are You refering to the Andorian Broadsider Battleship that Al said was coming?

This was supposed to be a c-store ship - no KDF ships were planned until some time in 2013

Cryptic has tasted the cash from the lockbox scams.

Dont expect any new cstore ships. It will all be lockbox. Spend your zen on keys = more profit for them.

Understand the game is no longer being improved (at all) ...it is merely being milked.

Are you saying the Vesta coming to the C-store next month(CONFIRMED) is going to be the last for awhile?

Not liking the lock boxes is completely understandable, but claiming the game isnt being improved at all is completely nonsense. Season 7 is adding a ton of new mission content to the game. Its the closest thing this game has gotten to a real expansion so far.

Yes, I hope this is the case.

I certainly hope this IS NOT the case. The Andorian ship, or ships, are the only ones i want. I used to want a D'kora, but gave up on that idea long ago. Lockbox ships are to hard to aquire unless you plan on spending 150-200 real dollars, or have an ungodly amount of EC.
