I bought the Varanus for C-points when it came out. So why the vendor trying to charge me 4 Fleet Ship Modules to buy the Fleet version?

Sometimes I think I play STO just to have stuff to rant about on the forums!

The discount only applies to retrofits. It doesn't apply if you own a regular version of any ship, including ships bought via the C-store.

So you'll only get a discount if the ship has the word "retrofit" in its name.

Welcome to KDF. I dont think there are any ships that don't require 4 FSMs for them.
I had the refit Vorcha/Vorkang, and yet had to shell up 4 FSM for the fleet version.

Not true on the 'retrofit' part, according to the patch notes the Fleet Varanus should cost 1 FSM if you already own the 2000 Zen store variant. That being said, if you acquired the Varanus by using the 600-day Veteran award (basically got the ship free) token then that will not count as being a purchase from the Z-store and you will still have to up 4 FSMs.

There have been times when shopping for new ships that I have to reset the display to show the correct cost by changing things, for example, click on a different ship first then go back to the one you want to buy, try doing that if you actually did pay the 2000 zen (or 1600 cryptic points) for your current Varanus.

since when do you get a cstore ship for being a vet. all cstore ships have to be bought.

Yup, still screwing us KDF..

I own ( sadly enough ) every c-store KDF ship.. and they want 4 modules for any and every fleet version... before the patch, and after the patch.. oddly my FED toons get the module discount...

The 600-day vet/Lifer VA ship token can be used to purchase a ship from the C-store. Not any ship, 3 really on the fed side, the retrofit versions of the Exploration Cruiser, Long Range Science Vessel and Tactical Escort; and 4 on the KDF side, Varanus, Marauder, B'rel retrofit and Kar'fi. AFAIK it has always been this way.

Oh, forgot, you can't use the token directly in the C-store, you have to use the token to buy the ship at the shipyard, which is probably why it doesn't count as a purchase for fleet discount purposes.

You might try discharging the ship and re-claiming it, pending it was purchased for Zen, as that fixes many ship problems.
