# 1 Jem-Dread Attack Ship Hangar
02-03-2013, 11:24 PM
I am absolutely baffled as to why the attack ship carrier pets have been made dependent upon having unpacked a jem bug attack ship. No other hangar requires that you buy a playable ship to get the hangar pet version of it. Additionally, the jem bug wasn't re-released in the dominion pack to make it more available, and as such, the value of the most expensive ship in the game has only gone up.

If I can manage to get a Jem-dread, the last thing I'm going to want to do after that is another grind for another ship that will cost four times as much, if not more, a ship I have no intention of flying, just so I can have the frigate pets.

Please, for the love of all that is good in the world, remove the jem attack ship as a prerequisite for the attack ship hangars.

I'd love for this to be done as well. Either that, or add the JHAS to the Lobi Store or something for say 1600 Lobi..
You think that your beta test was bad?

I think it's great. (I can only assume I'd feel the same way if I didn't have the Jem Attack Ship). However I'm assuming that this is a fairly powerful fighter and they want to keep it rare. I'm also assuming that it was a way for them to incorporate the one other Jem'Hadar ship into this new lockbox somehow.

My other theory is that there were a LOT of people who spent a LOT of money trying to get that Jem'Hadar attack ship because they thought it was going to be the only chance they had at getting a Jem'Hadar ship. Perhaps it's a bonus for those that acquired it?

Perhaps it is also an incentive for those that have already aquired a Jem'Hadar ship to participate in this lockbox event who may not have been as interested considering they already had a Jem'Hadar ship. I'm curious as to how it performs. I'll be getting a dreadnought to find out.

It would be extremely cool if the Dev changes their mind and allow JH Dreadnaught owner to obtain the bug hangar pets in a more reasonable way. Dev, I would love you more if you do this

Right now, the cost of getting the actual Jem'Hadar Attack ship is over 400 million EC. It's outrageous.

Perhaps some people already managed to get a hold on Hangar Pets from Tier 5 Fleet Starbase? I'm really curious how that compared to the JH Bug pets.

# 5 Jem'hadar Escort

How in there right mind is going to give up the escort for carrier? I got the bug and the EC to get the carrier but I am not going to get it. It would take weeks to grear it up as well..

From what I've seen of the stats, the bug hangar seems no better than a karfi frigate, so I don't see how they are so uber that they require such a massive restriction. I don't think many who bought the bug would be going out of their way to get the carrier simply because owning the bug allows them to buy the bug hangars, and they really should have re-released the attack ship in this lockbox and could add the keldon or something to the cardasian lockbox in its place if they bring that box back around. Now that there's actually a dominion lockbox, it makes no sense for the attack ship to still come in a cardasian lockbox.

nothing in STO makes any kind of linear sense. Everything, even this carrier, is just a mind **** by pwe/cryptic to get you to open your wallet.

Man people of the 21st century are slowing getting rid of man fighters...you would think the people of the 25th would as well.
