Right under the minimap next to the c-store/d-store buttons is the one for the DOff interface. ESD & SFA have recruitment assignments to get more DOffs or you can get "cadre packs" from some missions and of course the c-store. It's like a CCG where you try to collect the best ones, and send them out to do missions. They run while you aren't even playing so if you have a few minutes to pop in and set a few up but not enough time to actually play, it's a good way to make XP.

All three Advanced Odyssey Cruisers will be available in the C-Store for individual sale (2000 Cryptic Points) or as a 3-pack bundle (4000 Cryptic Points).

So $25 for one $50 for all three to get the set bonus. plus you need 3 open ship slots to buy it so most will probably have to buy extra slots.... and the same for the KDF side.

Yeah... no.

Wait, 2000 Cryptic Points is $25? Dang, at least the Multi-Vector Advanced Escort will be worth it.

those are almost "shinki" level prices for some nice looking 3D graphics... the only way to tone down (a bit) on those prices would be going crazy on dilithium farming to compensate... still that's too much for just a piece of a full game instead of a full game... heck! even ME3 is cheaper!

that reminds me... i heard suscribers get 400 promotional c-points a month or something like that... if that is true, do you have to spend those points in that month or you can save them? because that could help reducing costs a bit... at least for lifetimers.

Yeah, 400 STO-only c-points for subscribers or lifetimers. They don't expire but can't be spent in any other Cryptic game. So 10 months for the bundle, assuming it sticks around and isn't limited time. 5 months for a single ship.
