Ah, thx for clearing that up.

Given that you apparently went and bought the ship from the C-store, it suggests that you acquired your initial one through the VA veteran token, and NOT via a dollar value purchase.


As such, the GM was right, there is no bug, and you're basically trying to get Cryptic to give you free money.
This is not always true. This has been a long standing bug with the C-Store that has been around since the C-Store was introduced. See link.

I'm sure there are folks out there who do mistake using the VA ship token. However, there are those who have had an issue with being charged twice for the same ship. I have a friend who had the same exact issue.

Not true. I have the option of buying the Fleet Tactical Escort Retrofit with 1 fleet ship module. The problem is the VA Ship Token. Preseason 5 there were a few ways to get the Vice Admiral Ship Token.
1) reach level 50
2) Buy the token with 250 emblems
3) postseason 5 600 day vet reward

You can read this node for further detail. Either way all character preseason 5 that hit va received one. If you hit 600 days and never had one previously you got one.

VA Ship Token ships do not qualify for the ship discount. You may have the prerequisite already but will not qualify because the ship must be obtained through the c-store for the discount.

the only reason why I qualify is because I purchased the ship about 2 years ago when I learned that I should not have obtained the exploration cruiser and I did not want to grind the emblems for the proper ship. In the end I didn't stay with that ship either. Unfortunately the old skill tree required you to spec into your ship. (Ah one of the parts of the good old days I do not miss)
