You are right, Chris, they didn't have to do it. However, they managed to include an incentive for most people to NOT upgrade their T5 C-Store Ships, but instead directly purchase the T6 versions.
I guess, in the end it all comes down to how "important / useful" that Level 5 Starship Mastery, the Starship Trait, the additional BOFF ability and the Specialist BOFF seats will be.
But, I am not complaining. After all, for Cryptic this is a business and they rely on us doing Micro-Transactions, so they earn something for a living. Personally I start saving 30 EURO for a T6 Scimitar, just in case.
