    Heh, didn't expect the announcement quite so soon...but giving how long a promo runs, guess it makes sense.

    I'm going to go hide now. ;)

    But does owning one grant the ability to launch Jem Hadar Attach Ships from a JH Dreadnought Carrier?

    Even better, does it let you launch JH Strike Ships?

    I.. What?!

    Why?!

    I understand the financial standpoint, but... do you people not give a damn about the integrity of your game?! Even one?

    At least the first time could have been called a learning experience!

    NOTE: Newly purchased Research and Development packs will only offer the chance to win the Jem’Hadar Strike Ship during this promotional event. Once this event ends, the packs will revert back to their previous state and no longer offer the bonus Lobi or the Jem’Hadar Strike Ship. Any older packs purchased before this event begins will not offer the chance to win the Jem’Hadar Strike Ship.

    Packs purchased during the event, but get opened after the event will still benefit from this promotion’s bonus rewards.

    The highlighted lines from the blog seem to contradict one another.

    What happened to DOFF Promos (something I might pay money for) ... I don't really see the point of these R&D Packs, though ...

    Not really, the special pack you receive if purchased within the promotion period will still have the bonus if you open it after the promo ends.

    The packs in the store will revert back to ones with no bonus.

    Originally, this was scheduled from 3/19 - 3/23, but now it runs alongside the CE event. lol

    I wonder if the recent leak had anything to do with this change...

    As if this hasn't happened before. Yet another "limited ship of the week". OP in some way no doubt. At least until another one is released to milk out even more money out of gullible players.


    Meh. As if you really need those Box/Lobi/Promo ships to compete in even the hardest content the game has to offer... I mean, If you're buying/gambling for those ships for anything other than their looks, you're doing it wrong, at least in my opinion.

    Still, I can't help but laugh at people who have spent a fortune on JHAS just because the ship was considered OP at the time. Money well spent, no doubt. :>


    Now excuse me, I'm going back to flying my T5U Steamrunner, T5U Vor'Cha and T5U Fleet D'deridex.

    In that picture somehow it looks like a plastic toy with decals applied. Hope it looks a little better in game.

    Too much reflectivity and smoothness on the ship surface?

    Good luck gamblers.

    I do feel hit in the face for having the original Bug Ship, so I can open the new one on the same account with the old one, will we see soon a new T6 Galor and T6 variants of the other Lockbox ships.

    Doubtful. This isn't the first leak, by any stretch.

    Plus, this promo will run into (and end with) an R&D weekend, just like the Sheshar promo.

    Let the REAL Bug Hunt begin! :D

    Huh, well I'll be dipped. I thought the Dominion ship line had been completely tapped dry. I thought the Sheshar would be the promo ship for at least another 6 months before a new promo ship got introduced. But they found a way.

    I'm not exactly thrilled, either, as an original Bug owner. :( This was a poor decision, IMO. There was no need to revamp the Bug, and a T6 Battleship would have made just as much sense/money (call it a destroyer or something, if not a Battlecruiser).

    That being said... what's done is done. This thing IS coming out, and boycotting it won't change it's existence. This is why I saved my ZEN. A "CYA" emergency slush fund for my most prized ship in the game. Just waiting to hit the BUY button, now. :)

    Yet no T6 Galaxy, no T6 D'deridex, no T6 Negh'Var etc.

    Oh, remember how Cryptic was saying pre-DR that your current T5 ships won't get obsolete with the introduction of T6? Hah, hilarious...


    On a side note, there are now more limited/event/promo T6 ships of minor factions in the game, than there are KDF and ROM T6 ships combined (I'm not counting Command BCs as six ships, because they're all essentially the same). And I'm positive there are at least three more FED T6 ships in the works...

    *sigh*

    I'd like to interject here to talk about the last time the JHAS promo was around. This was the post talking about it , and it specifically said:
    With the release of Star Trek Online: Delta Rising, this starship (either from this run of the promotion or from previous runs) will be upgradeable to Tier 6 starship capabilities at no cost.
    And while T5-U and T6 are similar, the JHAS factually does not have the capabilities of Tier 6 starships. Tier 6 starships have a 13th bridge officer ability, a starship trait, and have at least a lt. rank station with a specialization. The JHAS has none of those.

    Now, while I don't personally own a JHAS, I think this is clearly deceptive advertising. When I heard the rumors of a new Jem'Hadar ship, I was wondering if it would be a T6 JHAS, and upgrade existing JHAS to Tier 6 starships. Instead, they're making a second Jem'Hadar ship via promo packs. IMO, a T6 JHAS would have just as many people buying promo packs, and that they're not being good to their word is upsetting.
    SCM - Crystal C. (S) - [00:12] DMG(DPS) - @jarvisandalfred: 8.63M(713.16K) - Fed Sci

    SCM - Hive (S) - [02:31] DMG(DPS) - @jarvisandalfred: 30.62M(204.66K) - Fed Sci

    Tacs are overrated.

    Hey Cryptic, remember when Tier 6 was first announced and you said you'd "take care of us?" Or how shortly afterwards you ran the R&D promo with the Jem'Hada Attack Ship and when we complained about promoting a Tier 5 ship when Tier 6 was coming you said the Attack Ship would be upgradable to Tier 6 capabilities?

    Well as an Jem'Hadar Attack Ship owner I am not feeling taken care of at the moment, at all.

    Speak for yourself. I wouldn't fly one even if I got it, regardless of the stats.

    I'd sell it on the exchange to some other poor soul $_$ (and keep flying some handicapped Fleet T5U I actually like the looks of, like the D'deridex).

    For those of us who own the JHAS, I am extremely disappointed but not surprised. Honestly, you didn't need to re-release this ship. There were plenty of other ships to choose from.

    It's a slap in the face plain and simple.
