Hey guys, the clear choice is a universal ship pack... but I can't decide on one. I love Escorts.... but to be honest, I haven't flown anything else. I really HATE the Temporal Ships, they are ugly as sin, but the stats look awesome. Please help me decide..... Thanks guys! Oh, BTW, have a great weekend... honoring fallen brothers on this end, ride to D.C. and Arlington, but you should see my mug in game.
Stats aren't everything (unless you're the kind of captain who wants to finetune and squeeze out every last bit of performance).

Fly what you like, what you feel comfortable in. Cruise the galaxy, impress primitive lifeforms. If you're going to make unauthorised first contact, make sure it's in a ship that'll look really good carved into a cave wall.

I agree completely. I don't have the time to spend hours a day researching wiki to find the "perfect" ship. I pick what I think looks cool, or I get a ship type I don't already have and tinker with it.
At the moment it's a 20% off sale, so get thinking!

I picked up the flagship bundle for 9,600 instead of 12,000!

I thought about that too, but i have cruisers up the wazoo on one toon, so i spent all my zen on master key bundles and didn't get ONE ship in 160 lockboxes

Phwor, that's a tough pill to swallow!

I keep my ships all canon - it saves any disappointment when/if I open any boxes! If I do get a ship it's just sold when the promotion is over

That is really unfortunate!  Hopefully you got a load of Lobi though and are well on our way to a nice Lobi ship!  I have the Tholian Recluse Carrier from when I first started playing years ago but really wish I hadn't now and had saved up my Lobi for the Kelvin Timeline Dreadnaught!  My only Lockbox ship is the Voth Bastion Flight Deck Cruiser which I must admit is pretty awesome even compared to some T6 stuff.

I'm with you on the Temporal ships looking really ugly - they just don't look like something a Starfleet captain would use in my opinion and don't even look very Star Trek =/  

If you wanted to really go all out on a big ship pack it which will be really different to fast escorts then maybe get the T6 flagship bundle - can't go wrong stat wise, look beautiful, and have some nice traits.  Doing that is probably going to be my next move - so far I've mainly use a T6 Fleet Arbiter or an Andorian Escort
