I think Cryptic has enough fail safes in place already. As mentioned previously it is your responcibility to acknowledge the deletion of the ship. If you did and went through the process of typing the name and proceeded, well....
As far as number of ship slots, okay, if you wanted to pay even more money so you can have the entire ship roster in place with ships that aren't doing anything. Make sure you get all the small craft too. You can only pilot one at a time.
As far as even having boxes on the C-store, I don't see the point. Cryptic should just have a random lottery either ingame or the C-store as buying boxes is pointless as I have 150+ boxes in my bank at the moment. I'm going to start a Minecraft game in STO soon.
@Branflakes : why does it say "Server Status: UP" on the sto site when it is not ? , just wondering why it does not say down for maintinance . i know it says it is down at the top of the page in the red box but also says it is up to the right a little lower lol
