Not bad. And finally a little love for the KDF side. Got the Yacht and the Flyer, so again unlikely to be used, but neat skin at least. And while they're free, may as well unlock everything you can.

They said 3 KDF ships coming. Was looking at the list and only saw 2 as 'obvious' options (i.e. cheap enough to give away for free). not sure what the 3rd option would be...

The Runabout is worth claiming for the special engine alone which is usable on any small craft!
And it is a good ship if you don't have nothing but stock shuttle.

True enough. Because of how the STFs used to work, though, even my shuttles are rocking sets of gear. They've got the Mk XI sets I no longer needed when i finally got Mk XII.

Outside of the 1 ship and 1 shuttle I really use, the ships/shuttles are just extra storage, anyway. All the STF/breen/dominion/etc set pieces, a couple different flavors of weapons, etc. In theory, they could all fly with only a few tweaks, but really just places to put stuff, not geared towards use

I always wanted the Yellowstone's engines and now I can get it for free. Cool.

So if I have both fed and kdf characters, I can claim both shuttles?

Yes, and claiming them, enables you to get the fleet version cheap for just one ship module!


Edit: Strike that, only T5 C-Store ships get you a discount on modules.

While nice, I wish the Rhode Island special ability console lasted longer than 5 seconds...

Hoping tomorrow the freebie is either an Excelsior or Nebula.

It'll probably be something that doesn't sell well; so either the Nebula-class or the Vulcan D'Kyr for Feds, no idea for the KDF, but I'd imagine the door is wide open based off comments about stuff not selling well red side in general.

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

Most of my toons have full ship loadouts, but these are account-wide, right?

Despite being just a C-store unlock, you can't unlock it without claiming it and having room to do so on the toon you're doing it for.

Just want to make sure I can take one of my toons, claim the ship, and then dump it again to make room for the next one, and it'll still be good as the account unlock if I ever actually want it later...

Its just like buying any C-Store ship, except it costs 0 zen. So once you've unlocked the ship once on a single character, its permanently unlocked for all characters and you can get the ship an infinite number of times.
