    I love the Recluse on my Fed Engineer. I’ve used it for such a variety of roles, it’s a pretty incredible ship with equally incredible pets. Got it for 70 million energy credits. Of course, that was when master keys sold for about 1 million energy credits.

    Cool thread you made here Reyan.

    Hm, well setting personal preferences aside and just looking at the value I gain over the cost I needed to invest both the Scimitar and the Vanguard Warship come to mind. Strictly from a performance stand point under current (and even past meta) both ships just cost (a few zen) but have a high impact on PvE.
    Biggest disappointment for me are the promotional ships. Most if not all of them. They cost a fortune but have nothing that could not be done a hell of a lot better with cheaper choices. They are just for vanity, nothing else.
    Good middle ground have been NX, Discovery & Vengeance for me. Good flexibility, overall performance and a bit vanity feel for an acceptable price.

    Regarding that, I find it funny that at least some of them seem to have been designed to be as unappealing as possible, stat-wise. You'd think that the rarest ships would also be the most desirable, but especially the Universe or Hurq Dread kinda prove the opposite. They are not as awful as say, Excelsior, sure, but indeed, you can get a lot better ships paying less.
    However, imo that's only good.

    Yea I agree, we play a game where we see the most drastic changes to the core rules from time to time. Top of the line ships today, can have not much for them by tomorrow if performance and not the love of a ship is what counts for a player.

    And yea even though I spend billions of EC on my promo ships (and was even sentimental about the JHSS for a very long time) I concur that better ships should not be exclusively hidden behind huge pay walls.

    No idea what cryptic could do to compromise; perhaps they could give those 1,5 Bilion EC ships some more flexibility to meta changes. Perhaps rearrange specialized seats there to be updated and selectable when new specialization hits.

    But hey, the business there seems to work out for cryptic as it is so yea it’s very reassuring to know the most expensive crafts in STO are far from being the best in game.

    Thanks!
    And thank you for raising that point actually - whether or not the promo ships represent good value for money in player's minds is VERY relevant to the thread since the majority of us here (on the forum) purchase said ships buy buying and selling R&D boxes/keys.
    Might it be fair to say that, regardless of how good (or not) the promo ships are, the cost of obtaining them somehow 'taints' them a little in some cases?
    I mean, looking back at some of the replies here, I am not seeing that many players saying that their 'value for money' ship is a lock box/R&D promo one.
    As I commented earlier, I own a few promo ships but the ship I've definitely gotten the best 'value for money' out of remains my, now over six years old, FT5-U Rhode Island. I paid 2000 zen (for fleet ship modules) for that ship all that time ago and it is still my primary ship for my oldest character.

    I have very few promo/lockbox ships because I don't open lockboxes often. Usually ships I got were MU and not the 'big' one. The lockbox/lobi ships I fly (Paradox/Wells) were gifts and I wouldn't take anything for them. The T5-U Wells is a nice ship, but the T6 Eternal is just that much better for missions and such. Still, my main keeps it as a 'personal' ship and flies it when he's simply dil farming/patrols/etc. It's still good for stuff like that, and probably missions, but he still likes his Eternal and even his Vorgon ships.

    The one who mentioned that the Event ships are a good buy was right. All we do is invest some time to get those.

    Just because you spend money on this game, it does not entitle you to be a jerk if things don't go your way.

    I switch ships A LOT so i have to give some proper thought to the question when i get back from work. Seen some interesting ship pass by here though.
    This program, though reasonably normal at times, seems to have a strong affinity to classes belonging to the Cat 2.0 program. Questerius 2.7 will break down on occasion, resulting in garbage and nonsense messages whenever it occurs. Usually a hard reboot or pulling the plug solves the problem when that happens.

    One of my other toons uses the Paradox, but that was a gift from a very generous friend. I can't seem to get my AoY out of it, except to run the mastery on other ships.

    That would be my vote, that 31st century ship pack makes a great starter set for T6 fleet level ships that spreads across all factions.

    I really only have one true friend on STO and we only team when she wants help to get through Kobali ground. Otherwise we'll sometimes meet up for a bit of RPing.

    Mostly I'm just a single player doing whatever seems appealing. I've just started my main Fed on my main acct on the ViL arc. Still, I have fun and relaxation even if I'm only doing patrols or DSEs or pickup missions like on Nimbus or catching Alhena or something.

    I have no idea whether their "value wise" status qualifies them or not, but since several of my favorites have not been mentioned much (or at all); I'm gonna mention them anyway. I like the Reliant Advanced Light Cruiser (T6), the Malem Light Warbird (T6); the Walker-class Light Exploration Cruiser (T6); the Dauntless Class Experimental Science Vessel (T6); the NX Escort Refit (T6) and the Faeht Intel Warbird (T6).

    Well i'm gonna go against the flow here and nominate a promo ship as my best-value ship!

    The Amarie Heavy Escort in my sig pic was an expensive purchase, just over 900M EC so it was not a light decision to buy one.
    That said i have never had as much fun flying a ship in my whole game time in STO. The ship just feels "right" in my hands, it handles the way i want a ship too, handles a way i'm comfortable with. It has boff seating that works perfectly for me, the console layout fits perfectly for me. I do reasonably well in it too, i'm not a great player and I have done better in other ships, but nothing gives me a sense of happiness knowing that i found a ship that really just fits me this well.

    Plus i think it looks amazing, and is one of the rarest ships to be seen in the game. I rarely if ever see another one out there in the big wide galaxy so i feel unique when i'm flying around.
    And the whole canon background to the ship fits really well with my main character's backstory.

    So yes it was a very expensive item to buy, but it's my firm choice for best value.

    Ships bought for real money - T5 Assault Cruiser Refit. It was the ship for my main Fed for years; I had planned to move on to an Oddy, but they brought out T6 ships, and well, I just don't like the way the flagships got treated... The Scimitar was semi-excusable, but the Bortas and Oddy were brand new, and I didn't like dumping T6 refits on them after what, a year?

    Otherwise, the Konnie. I have to confess, I did not like JJ Trek when it was new; but I needed a ship for my AoY character, and well, a Konnie was affordable. So... Got the Kelvin uniform and a bunch of Kelvin beam arrays to go with it, and now I've grown to like the thing. Which surprised me. I just wish I had made him a Sci, I miss Subnuke when I play Tacs...

    An honourable mention goes to the Mirror Negh'Var used by my Klingon main, he's been stuck with it now since he got to level 50, however many years ago that was...

    In terms of ROI, it's the Ferengi D'Kora; Exchange access from the Bridge is such a nice thing, it means that ship has turned a far greater profit in EC than any of the others have.

    If you get the T6 Negh'Tev, you can use the Mirror skin on her. I do that with my Qa'Tel Raptor since it also shares Qin parts, and I flew the Mirror Qin back in the day.

    So this is hard to cover for me...

    The Scryer, Phantom and Faeht Intel ships are ships I have been flying the longest.
    The Scott, Daystrom, Mur'Eq, Antaak, Nijil and Varel class Miracle Worker ships have the most characters flying them.

    So I guess those two packs have majority of my characters ships that they fly. 9 out of 15 characters are in the above ships at this time.
    Federation: Fleet Admiral Zombee (Alien Tactical)::Fleet Admiral Danic (Vulcan Science)::Fleet Admiral Daniel Kochheiser (Human Engineer)
    KDF: Dahar Master Kan (Borg Klingon Tactical)::Dahar Master Torc (Alien Science)::Dahar Master Sisteric (Gorn Engineer)
    RR-Fed: Citizen Sirroc (Romulan Science)::Fleet Admiral Grell (Alien Engineer)
    RR-KDF: Fleet Admiral Zemo (Reman Tactical)::Fleet Admiral Xinatek (Reman Science)::Fleet Admiral Bel (Alien Engineer)
    TOS-Fed: Fleet Admiral Katem (Andorian Tactical)::Lieutenant Commander Straad (Vulcan Engineer)
    Dom-Fed: Dan'Tar (Jem'Hadar Science)
    Dom-KDF: Kamtana'Solan (Jem'Hadar Science)

    My Fed Pilot ships (original bundle) have served me very well. They're slightly fugly (what with their Defiant-wannabe chicken-wings and all), but they're very versatile, and I still use them a lot.

    The Herald Baltim Heavy Raider is also one of my favorites.

    But, that means taking him out of the ship he's sort of grown into as it were... (it might look the same, but it won't be the same) Come AoD I'll get 5 Fleet Ship Modules from Reps and try it, but I'm not sure it'll fit him...

    Well... I was just pointing out that it would be unlocked for the T6 Negh'var variants.
