The 1000 day Veteran reward is officially Vektor's Enterprise-F submission, renamed the Chimera class, and a Klingon equivalent:

Grats, Vektor!

As a lifetime subscriber I actually find this very interesting.

http://sto.perfectworld.com/news/?p=706971

So basically everyone with a lifetime subscription gets all the veteran rewards regardless of how long they've been subscribing for basically. Or at least thats what it looks like.

Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)

I don't have a problem with this. The game's almost three years old, and if this causes a bunch of people to buy LTS, then we all benefit; if it doesn't, then it doesn't affect us.

It's not like we worked for this; we spent the money and things just fell on us. It's not like they're getting a year of our monthly stipends up front.

Pretty much, it only shaves one day off for me to get the ships. I assume the reasoning is that it's a better enticement to get people to fork over that large sum of cash. At the end of the day, it really doesn't bother me much right now since this is meant to be the final veteran reward anyway.

Not far off from becoming a commander, and I'm doubting wether I should go for the Cheyenne class or Akira class. I fany the Akira a bit more, but the Cheyenne looks to have better stats.
Any advice??

Akira all the way. She will kill things 3 times faster, too.

If people want to pay $200-300 for access to one ship, that's cool with me.

Depends on how you want to play. The cruisers are for tanks, escorts for DPS, and science for support. I personally like the escorts, but it was more it fit my playstyle than me going into DPS.

You know what I mean.
Before yesterday, encountering anyone with this ship would have meant someone to be reckoned with for sure, someone who knows this game in and out.
Even if it was a lifer, he did his time to get experience.
Now you can it within a few days. Leveling up on the same day you fire up the game to cap is unlikely.
Of course there is a lot of grey between that black and white. Nit everyone will be a noon, but not quite a veteran either.

In Regenerative mode, its going to have additional shield resistance and the ability to siphon shields from multiple ship. In Tactical mode, its going to land every shot thanks to the accuracy boost and have a multiple target phaser lance. I'll say even in the hands of a poor player, it is still going to be a ship to be reckoned with.

With Cmdr Tac and Lt. Cmdr Sci slots, its going to be a crazy powerful ship in the hands of a good science officer. Just imagine this in ISE:

1. Gravity Well a bunch of spheres
2. Enable Tactical Mode
3. Phaser lotus + Cannon scatter volley + Torpedo spread

If attacked by multiple spheres, simply revert back to Regenerative Mode and take defensive actions.

Kind of stinks because most of us had to earn the bloody things the hard way and wait...but nothing surprises me with Cryptic these days...they are constanlty moving the goal posts in this game.

The exclusive ships you only got when you bought a certain version fo the game eventually appeared in the store not long after launch.

The borg captain you got only from a pre-order LTS eventually was given to everybody that bought a LTS.

The captain table opened to everybody with a sub.

And now LTS rewards become avalible to everybody with the cash to buy a LTS.

So really nothing new here for Cryptic. if we wait long enough LTS will come with a new clause that you must buy 1 gold key every week to continue to playing the game. LOL

"Earn". You're comfortable with using that word for something that, without this change, still went to people who bought an LTS before launch, then quit playing, and only came back a month ago?

And yes, they exist; I've got three in my fleet.

There's nothing "hard" about what we did for this; the only hard part was coming up with the money, and frankly most of the people getting this without time passing spent more money than we did, on their LTS at least.
