Yeah, but that's a Silver issue, not a C-Store issue. You can be Silver and own 10 Fed C-Store ships. That doesn't mean you get to keep them all in your active inventory.
STO is about my Liberated Borg Federation Captain with his Breen 1st Officer, Jem'Hadar Tactical Officer, Liberated Borg Engineering Officer, Android Ops Officer, Photonic Science Officer, Gorn Science Officer, and Reman Medical Officer jumping into their Jem'Hadar Carrier and flying off to do missions for the new Romulan Empire. But for some players allowing a T5 Connie to be used breaks the canon in the game.

True, we don't know the route they went with the Romulan ships though, They could go for the 20$ style, or they could go with the Sovereign style +1, at $25. That's why I said they could do the 20$ ships. I think they will go the +1 route because it will make them more money in the long run. The original retrofits did add new consoles though, ablative armor for the intrepid, cloaking for the defiant, and saucer separation for the galaxy.

We'll just have to wait and see.

125$ for some ships that we know nothing?i know you (cryptic) thinks about us that we are all only RP players who don't care about gameplay and chalange, but that is not true!

this looks like a second plan for cryptic to make sure that they get their investment back. it looks like they are not sure if the new expansion will be good or bad.

ps: this is not flame or trolling! is only my opinion and i hope this post will remain here this time.

If we all live in boxes that doesn't mean my box is the same color like yours

But not all of these ships are top tier ships either. They ARE levelling ships, some at least.

I maintain that in my opinion 125 bucks is overpriced for the conent being given in the package.

When asked what I thought a fair price would be, I said 60 bucks. I stick by my opinion on the pricing.

I'm not planning to play enough Romulan alts to really consider purchasing this even at 60 bucks. So really this isn't that big an issue for me.

I just think, wow, 125 bucks? For pixels? That's too rich for my interest.

They've already stated there will be a dev blog with stats soon.

The ship information will be in upcoming blogs. You don't need to buy the packs today. It's not ending today. You have time to make an informed decision as to whether or now you will eventually want to buy one of the C-Store packs.

These are the STO forums, nothing they do or say in any way would quell or negate forum rage.

I've read at least 10 posts in this thread that claims that this means there are no free Romulan ships, and at least 5 posts confused about Reman captains coming from the reputation system.

Thank you

In the end, what they chose to call us is irrelevant.
We simply... are.

Still it's a strange procedure to sell the horse before you know what it's capable to do.
