10 Dollars... is it an account-wide unlock, or in a single-use pack like the lockbox ships?
Edit: Never mind:
"This pack unlocks the following items for every Federation character on an account. If you delete a Steamrunner starship, you must reclaim it from the ship store. You must be at least level 2 to open this pack. "
They should probably put the shields at .99 or whatever else the biggest escorts have. Does the turn rate make up for the difference?
The Somraw, K'tinga, D'Kyr, D7, Kumari, Xindi carrier, Xindi escort, and the T'Varo are all older than the Constitution Refit and yet they are tier 5. The Constellation is made up primarily of Connie refit parts and it is tier 5, there is no logical reason whatsoever for the no tier 5/6 connie rule.
