    That totally was intentional.

    That said, I'm just so utterly disappointed that it is in an R&D box. Though, considering you can also use Command skills, this makes sense.

    im going to wait on getting the Constitution after the patch, so just in case there is a zen charge bonus and a keyring sale.... that way i can just sale the keys on the exchange. that way i wont have to blow zen on those r&d packs...
    You actually get a better return on the R&D packs at 4 for 1000zen. They'll go for at least 60m compared to 45m for 10 keys at 1125.

    I figured they would do this but I'm still sad about it.

    This is a ship I really wanted to fly but lack of real world money to risk on the lottery and lack of in game credits (under a million when this will go for 1 billion is... slightly frustrating. I didn't care if it was a mediocre ship. I just wanted her to have a Discovery Constitution.

    There will be for sure a 25% Zen sale.

    What a load of bullsh**t, pardon my language.

    1). It's a promo ship proving that yet again Cryptic's greed is getting the better of them. For some reason anyone who wants to fly any iconic TOS ship at endgame gets shafted the most in this game and yet year on year they fill the store with pointless copycat meh releases of their own making. This thing would have literally flown off the shelves had it been C-store.

    2). No unique bridge. Pretty crap for a promo ship that we know should have a spectacular one based on the show's version of that TOS look. I bet you can't even use the TOS interior on it either for a real kick in the teeth!

    3). Can't be kitbashed with the other Constitution models. Fair enough the KT version is a different breed of ship entirely but the OG Connie should be able to mix n' match with it. They claim the scales are different, well then just scale one up/down to match the other ffs, lol it isn't that hard to work out. I'd sooner play a ship i could customize than worry about a minor size inconsistency.

    4) The stats are quite frankly all over the dammed place. 5/3 layout suggests a battlecruiser type affair but it cannot use cannons. The 2 hanger bays suggests a full carrier but this thing is counted as a flight deck cruiser. So what exactly is it? Because my Akira is an escort CARRIER but only gets one hanger yet this thing is a CRUISER and gets 2 ??? Likewise my Buran is a Dreadnought Cruiser and still only gets a single hanger. Suspicious

    5) The Adv Phasers are clearly aimed at bleeding money out of the DPS crowd. A weapon that gets better the more you have equipped? And it happens to have nice unique visuals....again locked behind a promo paywall now.

    6) The trait looks like yet another immunity on the bare facts we have so far. Just what the game needed.

    Honestly I'd say it's definitely not worth the price and anyone going after it (by whatever means) is only reinforcing the worst aspects of the game; showing Cryptic that the players are still ok with being treated like a bank rather than actual gamers and Trek fans.

    This whole thing just makes me sad and turns my stomach. The fact that they're rolling it out this way just shows how Cryptic doesn't care about players at all - they just want everything that's super-desirable to be locked behind a gambling / RNG mechanic where you have to pay TONS just for a chance to have the ship so that they can rake in profit. I understand that they're running a business here, but this just feels evil. Wish they'd just put it on the zen store for a flat buy-out, but that'll never happen.

    *edit - also funny that they had so many sales JUST before this announcement, which ensures that most people will be much lower on Zen than they normally would be....like I said...just feels evil.

    I could actually build this ship into quite a nice ship, but to pay a billion for her? Man... I just don't think so.

    I'm not at all surprised, but it leaves a really bad taste in my mouth. It's so monstrously greedy. Artificial scarcity coupled with a slot machine is about as low as a company can go.

    It's a beautiful ship. The art team did a stellar job on the D7 and the Connie both.

    The business decisions that leave these iconic hero ships unobtainable for the vast majority are infuriating.
