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!

For the KDF toon that you're on and using to look at the Fleet Store, have they claimed the Varanus before? If not, try doing that then look at the store again. If they do/ have, try discharging it (after taking off all gear, of course, and only after you're 100% sure it was purchased with C-Store Points in the past, not from LG rank up) and then claiming it again. Should do the trick.

Cheers,

I thought of that but...
I looked at the Z-store and it's showing a cost of 2000 Zen not the 'available' like the other ships I've bought. So, I really don't want to trash my current Varanus and get stuck having to spend 2000 Zen to re-buy it again. I'd want a GM present to see me toss my current one just in case the Z-store misbehaves.

If you have a second KDF character. See if they can claim the ship. If not then it was Token Purchases.

I had no problems with it got one for 1 fleet module but this gorn I got the gorn varanus for has had one for over a year now The ship by far is fantastic and with the changes that mines recieved for their overall being the whole design behind gorn + mines the varanus can do damage with the best of the setups in this game especially with that fleet varanus

Here's a screenshot.

There weren't any VA tokens for C-store ships when I bought this thing. I bought it the week it first came out, whenever that was... Season 2? 3?

I just think Cryptic/STO 'forgets' I bought it after X number of seasons' updates.

Yo Branflakes, just mail me 3 FSMs or enough EC to buy them off the exchange and we'll call it even.

First damn Fleet ship I've cared to try to get and I get all this hassle.

This ship was also available via Emblems when it first came out. Is it possible you purchased it using Emblems? If you did, that's why you're not seeing a "claim" or "available" button in the C-Store. For more support, please file a GM ticket (I saw your ticket number in the other thread, but I'm not sure if that's a GM ticket or a bug report -- it needs to be GM) at support.perfectworld.com or email directly: customerservice@perfectworld.com

Yeah, I had that problem with my Nebula for a second until I remembered that I used Marks of Exploration waaaay back in the day to pick it up.

It sucks for us since we did all that work to grind out Marks for these ships and have nothing to show for it.

I still think there needs to be a way to trade in our older ships for Dilithium or even Fleet Ship Modules.

Lt, Lt. Cmdr., Cmdr., and Capt. level ships give Half their Dilithium Cost if traded in. Rear Admiral Level ships give a fleet module or two....

Heck even if every ship gave half its Dilithium in trade in that'd be great.

There is the same issue with every single ship bought using VA tokens or Emblems.
I bought the Tactical Escort Retrofit, the Advanced Heavy Cruiser (not the Retrofit one) without using CP, thus they aren't unlocked in my C Store Account. I plan on buying the Varanus Support Vessel on my Sci KDF character, but I already know it won't be account unlocked.

Currently, the issue persists through VA tokens, even if the list of ships eligible for the tokens is quite short. That way, they don't really loose money.

I wish Cryptic had done something for long time players regarding this particular situation, but I'm afraid this won't ever happen. Seems they don't really care about those very long time players (like me).

If you think about it, people who were playing during the Emblems time, and who are still playing today, they had a subscription for quite some time. I'll let you do the math.
