    I just met a fellow player in a queue today who showed quite a bit of interest in the Galaxy one of my characters is in. So this ship definitely has admirers and fans, if you are on PC (can't speak for consoles) get it - it may help to see some more actual faction ships to be found in queues which consist largely of 31st century ships or lockbox ships these days pig-2.gif​​

    let me guess...this has something to do with mass effect: andromeda being released today, right?​​

    What about its Romulan and Klingon counterparts?
    My next toon shall be a Rommi. The D'Deridex would be a nice ship for her..

    No Negh'Tev or D'Khellra sale?

    That's... Not cool.
    Space Barbie Extraordinaire. Got a question about Space Barbie? Just ask.

    Things I want in STO:

    1) More character customization options such as more clothing options, letting the toon complexion affect the entire body, not just the head. Also a true RGB color picker applied to all costume and appearance options, which would allow for true appearance customization and homogenous colors instead of "this same exact color looks vastly different on two different pieces."
    2) Bridge customization, not bridge packs. Let us pick a general layout and adjust the color palette, console appearance, and chair types, as well as more ready room layout options.
    3) Customizable ground weapons, i.e. The aesthetic look of phaser dual pistols but they shoot antiproton bolts. For obvious reasons this would only apply to standard ground weapons.
    4) For the love of Q please revamp Plasma Ground Weapons. They look like demented Supersoakers right now.
    5) True Vanity Impulse and Deflector effects similar to Vanity Shields.
    6) A greater payout for hitting T6 Reputations. Currently it takes more time and resources to get from T5 to T6 than it does to get from nothing to T5. Make that grind really pay out at the end.
    7) Mirrorverse Refugee event similar to AoY/Delta/Gamma, complete with new Mirrorverse recruits for all factions.
    8) Independent Faction, because yo ho yo ho a pirate's life for me!

    This is actually pretty cool. I don't have much use for the Andromeda, but this is a fun promotion.
  • jexsamxjexsamx Member Posts: 2,797 Arc User
    This is a good promotion. If I didn't already own it, I'd jump on this.
  • daiphdaiph Member Posts: 149 Arc User
    While I whole-heartedly agree with a promotion like this (it is a nice tie-in, as Cryptic have managed previously, e.g. Enterprise pack on discount with the announcement of a new show, etc), would it not promote additional play and use of other factions if it were the Andromeda and it's factional equivalents up for the discount?

    I have to admit, I was thinking the same thing...

    Infinite possibilities have implications that could not be completely understood if you turned this entire universe into a giant supercomputer.p3OEBPD6HU3QI.jpg

    How dare you not make a ship I want 50% off! It's an outrage! ;)
  • tigerariestigeraries Member Posts: 3,481 Arc User
    becareful, if you buy this 1 ship at 50% off... you will lock yourself out of buying the 3 ship faction bundle.

    3 ship bundle is normally 6,000.

    if you buy this ship at 50% off... that's 1,500 but then you are locked into buying the remaining 2 ships at 3k each. even with a ship sale... total price would be 6,300 vs 4,800. unless you dont ever plan on buying the KDF and Rom versions...

    buyer beware!
  • theanothernametheanothername Member Posts: 1,484 Arc User
    I got the bundle not so long ago. This version of the Galaxy Class is finally one I can settle with and dedicated a char to it.
  • castlebravo023castlebravo023 Member Posts: 7 Arc User
    ......so apparently the joke just sailed right over a bunch of people's heads. :/

    Personally I find this hilarious, and came here specifically to say that.
    Peace out, playing Andromeda for a bit.

    Ah yes, "Iconians". The long-living race of abusive precursors allegedly waiting in a Dyson sphere. We have dismissed that claim.
  • stararmystararmy Member Posts: 231 Arc User
    This is a nice nod to fellow game devs over at Bioware. I remember something similar when the Star Wars MMO launched we got glowing lightsaber-esque bat'leths during the first winter event from a yoda-like alien. :)

    I'm not complaining really but just think it would make sense for the 3pk to have a relate discount, just to reflect the reduced cost of the Andromeda.

    I would like the other 2 just fine, have 3 fed, 7 KDF, and 3 Romulans, so play all factions. Wouldn't be a bad trait to have at disposal, but not going whole shebang for the pack. Not sure I would get the 3pk, I mean there have been sales on past I passed on anyways.

    The DD is a beautiful ship, could certainly find a home for her. The Negh'tev.... honestly beyond the trait I'd rather be in my T5u Kamarag, T5u Vor'cha, or my Kurak, Mat'Ha, Kor, Gorn MMSV, Kolasi, one of the 3 KDF CBCs, or purchase the Hormones or Qa'tel.

    3pks are buy 2, get 1 free basically, so if I'm not a fan 1 of the 3 I still think it is a good deal.

    That said, I do use the Yamato, and it can use the Andromeda Console, so I will be taking this deal without a second thought tonight.

    Again not complaining, just making and observation and yammering like an idiot.

    Yay, since I grabbed the Saucer Separation console by buying the Galaxy with my vet token, I can now put it to good use.




    At least, I would if the separation pets were working... *hint hint* :tongue:

    The Andromeda class, of course, if named after a distant galaxy, and you can assume control of this powerful ship to find your path in Star Trek Online. And whether you’re a Commander or a Captain, you should be careful. This might be your favorite ship in the galaxy.

    Terrible, terrible people you are. And I love it.
  • docbrown#0652 docbrown Member Posts: 124 Arc User
    Do a 50% discount on the pilot ships and you got yourself a deal.
  • nommo#5819 nommo Member Posts: 1,105 Arc User
    I already have the ship, thanks to the generous free promotion they did awhile back for this ship, but what I like even more is this 24 hour sale concept.

    They should start rotating this sale tactic around to different ships &/or even ship packs from time to time.

    Allow the opportunity for all factions' ships & this would deliver a good micro-sale potential on a limited scale.
  • tarran61tarran61 Member Posts: 826 Arc User
    Sold, I cannot get the 3 ship set, had the Negh'Tev Heavy Battlecruiser already. I just dont remember how/why. Thanks guys for the deal!!
    Positive thoughts.
