As the title says. With the tease of the Romulan Veteran ship yesterday i think it's time to bring this back up.
For as good as the Vet Ships are they are still lacking behind fleet ships mainly in one area, consoles. All of the lockbox, free, and lobi ships have 10 consoles but the ships that require a $200/$300 LTS or paying each month still have 9 consoles.
Since the Romulans will be getting a Vet ship soon i think that it's only right that at the same time the Romulan ship as well as the Fed and KDF ship get a fleet version.
Standard Fleet Bonus +1 Console +10% hull and shields.
Cost: 1 FSM 20,000 FC
Requires 1000/day Vet obviously.
1FSM instead of 4 because we have paid for the ship. not in the same way as the cstore ships but we've paid with our subscription and for that it should get the cstore discount.
The other option would simply be to just update the current ships with a 10th console slot, no hull/shield bonus and this would just change the ship that we already have.
Personally i would have no issues paying for a fleet upgrade to this ship for both my fed, and my romulan when that ship comes out. The Chimera is a great ship but that one less console slot does hurt, and it'll hurt even more on the romulan ship.
I hope enough of you agree with me here and we can hopefully get Cryptic to give us these upgrades when the Romulan Vet Ship is released.
I can agree on the possible addition of a 10th slot or a possible fleet version, but in Cryptic's eyes they see it as it's not a fleet ship nor is it a C-store ship, and for the perks of your sub including that free ship is enough.
Oh and FYI only select ships have 10 slots, not all paid for ones like lobi or store and definitely not free have 9 or less.

The console of the 1000-day-ships has two modes, one very good, and therefire it is a very effective console.
The turnrate, speed, hull/shield strength, abilities (battle cloak for the Klingon on top of that) and extra goodies like advanced slipstream and a very good BOff layout make these ships top of the line.
In fact my Klingon is using the veteran ship like some kind of heavy Bird of Prey and I prefer it over Galor, Bortasqu, Qin Raptor etc..
To put it bluntly, I can think of a ton of 10 console ships that cannot hold a candle to the 1000-day-ships and think I would rather see each of them have an individual bridge than a 10th console slot. That would be nice, of course, but the veteran ships are already great with 9.
Meh, the VA ship token we get for the 600? day reward are 9 console ships Really the 1000 day destoyers should have 10 consoles
Early lockbox ships like the d'kora only had 9 console slots too, they got upped to 10 since their will never be a fleet version ... ( d'kora even has a similar single console : two modes to switch between and ability for each mode )
