So I get that the Vengeance is a Fed-only ship, and I get that you wanted to make its console and trait available to Romulans and Klingons (which is a very nice gesture!). I'm cool with all that, and I'm really very happy that Cryptic is providing more options for everybody to try out.
What I'm confused about is this: why is the console/trait box restricted ONLY to KDF and Romulans? Why not make it available for everybody?
Here's why I ask: I've been running a Fleet Guardian for some time now. I spent a lot of time and effort making it just the way I like it. Both the trait and console from this new ship are appealing to me....but the ship itself is not. Yet I'm not allowed to open the Kelvin Timeline Intel Dreadnought Equipment box because I'm not a Rom/KDF. So, from my perspective, I have to pay twice as much as KDF/Rom toons *and* grind a ship I don't want to use all the way to Lvl 5 in order to get access to the same items they do. I can understand needing to do all of that for players who want the ship....but I don't want the ship. I just want the parts that are useful to my existing ship.
I don't mean to seem ungrateful here. I know you put a lot of effort into making the ship, and it looks really cool....I just don't want to fly it. I'm happy with my Guardian. I want to be able to more easily access the cool new trait and console without breaking the bank on a ship I'm not going to fly. Is there any way that this can be changed so that the Kelvin Timeline Intel Dreadnought Equipment box can be opened by any toon, including Feds (and presumably, TOS Feds too)?
