So I recently leveled another rommie to check out the new Ar'kif Retrofit. Get to the ship vendor and low and behold the VA token is NOT usable for the purchase. Working as intended? or bug?

Free Ship Tokens from promotion have never, ever, EVER been usable on C-Store or now, Fleet Ships. For you to advance to Vice Admiral and all the promotions before, you should have realized this by now.

... As a veteran, you get a VA token, that is usable on a T5 Retrofit vessel. I can purchase the D'Deri retrofit, the t'varo, etc. etc. So instead of jumping to the conclusion that I made a stupid mistake, perhaps you should do a little more fact finding, so you don't look foolish again.

He's talking about the VA Vet Token, which SHOULD be good for such ships.

Dev blog says that the only ship you can get with a rank-up token is the Commander-level one. The Ar'kala and Ar'kif Retrofit ships are C-store only. If I recall your last free ship was at 40.

The D'Deridex Retrofit likewise is 2,000 Zen, as is the T'Varo Retrofit.

If you have the Legacy pack unlocked, then the D'Deridex and T'Varo Retrofit would be free. The Ar'kif is not a part of the Legacy pack, so you'd still have to pay 2,000 zen.

I seem to recall Vice Admiral tokens for ships went the way of the dodo when the game went f2p.

/facepalm

Thank you for not being as dismissive as the first person. But I I have not purchased the Legacy pack and I assure you I DO have a VA token. I have used it several times on different characters in season 7.

Just like with the VA token does not work for the Armitage, it does not work on EVERY ship.
Appearently this is one of those birds it does not affect.

there are/were plenty of ships that were not aligable for the VA token. Guramba, dreadnought cruiser (that is actually all i can come up with) for no apparent reason those were excluded. seems this new romulan beauty is part of this "exhaulted" circle.

So far, I thought it was ships going for 2k that were included and the 2,5k ships that were not.

No idea if that was the original system, but that distinction seemed to work.

That would make sense. I admit it's not something I'm familiar with, as I do have the Legacy pack and a bunch of other c-store ships unlocked so I never really needed my VA token.
