# 1 Question about C-Store Races
02-02-2010, 10:39 AM
I know everyone is PO'd about the Klingon and Ferengi being in the C-Store. I honestly don't see what the fuss is about, it's like $7 for 500 points, and combined the price for both races is, what? 320 points?

Anywho, this thread's not about that, it's about what these races do for you.

I already have a character, he's human male, the race I've been planning to play since day one. As I understand it, most of us already have our characters made, so why would anyone purchase a race? For an alt? The only reason I can see is if these races can be used for Bridge officers. If they can, I would love to have a Klingon BO, even a Ferengi would be interesting.

Anyway, anyone know if this is the case?

Thanks.

There are Klingon and Ferengi bridge officers for sale on the exchange.

First off its an extra that isnt needed to play the game, so if you dont want to play one of those then don't worry about it. Second a big part of most mmos is trying out the different race/job combinations, so if I want to make a new character now I can have a couple more options.

Personally I hope to have more ship models available, if they have to be in the c-store I'd pay for an Excelsior class, I love that ship design.

I agree - as long as the C-Store keeps to cosmetic stuff. I'm still waiting to see what an extra character slot is going to cost.

I think you can requisition Klingon Bridge Officers from the Personnel Department on Star Base. No cryptic points needed. Not sure about Ferengi.

Male ferengi engineers and female ferengi science officers are available for starfleet merits at the Sol starbase.

Girlfriend got a male ferengi tactical officer last night via the automatic officer assignment every few levels. Don't recall seeing one available at the Sol starbase though.

Great!

Thanks for the info guys.

And yea, I have no problems with micro-transactions as long as their impact is minor.
I see it as a way for the devs to get more funding for development, more profit means more dev money.

you guys don't get it.


It's not bridge officers for sale, it is playable races for the federation. So you can be a Klingon Federation or Ferangi Federation PLAYER.....


Not BOff's
