I emailed this to DStahl and he said he will pass it along to Gecko since it is up his alley.

Did anyone else notice this? It seems they are starting a trend on items in the dilithium store that can be equipped on ANY ship but you must own a specific ship first.

First it's the Jem'hadar attack fighter pet, and now ship weapons. What's next, they're going to come out with an EV suit in the Dilithium store that requires you own 1 of the 350k dil suits first?

I don't find the logic in requiring you own a specific ship before you can purchase an item that can be equipped on ANY ship, other than they are trying to coerce people to purchase zen.

yea no see that actually makes sense, seeing as it is an andorian weapon and you need only buy it from the c-store to have full account allowance. I can even buy andorian weapons on my KDF account.

the Jemmy dread however is a different story, first it is a hangar pet that can only be used on the dreadnought itself not the JHAS, second they claim it as a bonus for JHAS owners, well it doesnt effect the JHAS owners who do not have a dread.

the Jemmy hangar bug is one thing, the andorian warship dil store weapons are another.

Just like the galor spiral wave disruptors you need the ship in order to buy more.

now if it had been you need all three to unlock the weapons, then it would be an outrage.
but just one makes sense and is a fair bargin. not to mention they work on any ship.

Actually the first was the Spiral Wave Disruptor that comes with the Galor. If anyone remembers, initially the only way you could get additional SWD was to be lucky enough to get another Galor. They eventually made them available in the Dil store but, you have to have a Galor in order to purchase it. Nobody had any complaints about that. So why complain about the Andorian Phasers. Personally, I could care less about the JHAS hanger pets. I own neither of the ships and most likely never will.

They could always make it to where you have to own the Jem HEC and the Jem dreadnought to get the JHAS fighters which would at least be better but not as good as simply making them available to all dreadnought owners.

I would say a fair compromise would be if any character on the account had the JHAS, then they could purchase the Hanger pet on any character on that account. Weapons would remain as per character.

If you have a Galor, you can use spiral waves on any ship.

If you have an Andorian escort, you can use Andorian weapons on any ship.

What do these to things have in common? On any ship.. You get a unique, expensive ship, and then you can use the nifty bonus you unlocked in any way you want.

Attack ship pets? The Dreadnaught is a unique expensive ship that requires owning a completely different unique expensive ship to unlock an item that has only one possible use: to be used by the Dreadnaught. This is like if the Kumari could not equip any kind of cannon except phaser unless you also owned a temporal science ship, even if you had no interest in the temporal science ship. Oh, and it's a per-character unlock. And the temporal ship costs 500M credits.

Seem reasonable?
