Heard on a dev interview that Cryptic's hoping to release a new ship every month. O.o
I'd much rather have a new mission. Hell, I'd even pay for it (Or at least raise the dilithium for it.
That would be nice, although I'd imagine missions take longer then ships, what with story writing, scripting, etc. But if it's just one mission, instead of 5 like with the FE's, I suppose they might be able to do it. Wouldn't want to loose the FE's though.
