So with the phoenix prize pack again I have gotten up to 800 phoenix tech upgrades now. Also managed to get hold of the Jem'hadar light cruiser with wormhole generator console. Needs a bit of work, so I might add more polaron boosting consoles.

Finally got an epic phoenix prize pack and I turned it in for another T6 Breen ship, the Plesh Tral heavy raider. I figured its starship trait might be useful and its console for 26.3% boost of polarons allow my ship to have >300% polaron boost.

After I get enough tokens for a free T6 ship, I think I am going to go for the Dominion temporal ship to round out my collection.

I found that disco ground set is nice for taking out the Borg, though that could just my enjoyment of punching them in the face after all the times they've adapted to my energy weapons.
Zefram cochrane's gun works well against Borg, since its physical damage rather than energy damage.

True, also the sniper rifle and the tommy gun. The mind meld device is also physical since it's more of a martial arts booster then a "true" weapon and the Disco set is a very good for melee builds and with mind meld device makes melee semi viable thanks to the built in gap closer.

Glad of the Phoenix event, needed something to drive the dil:zen prices back down since they climbed to over 450:1 at one point, it'll probably drop further when the sale ends. I just wish I'd held on to Zen for longer, with every jump in price I'd sold a batch more. But then if it was easy to predict which way the market would move we'd all be rich! :lol:

When it goes down a bit more I'll be able to afford the newest ship pack, but before I even get to mastering those I'll need to get to grips with the T6 Risian ship. I also stopped kicking off eggs or monkey vouchers on the Sunday before the event ends because I knew that was the latest I could start something and get it to 'senior' level. Managed to claim a couple thousand disco marks on each toon, so in around three weeks they'll all be at T5.

Forgot to say that the Arena of Sompek event came in extremely handy since (as intended) it gave me the last 50 tokens I needed to claim the free T6 ship voucher. At the moment I don't have any T6 ships to spend this on because the only ones available in the store are part of the newest pack, so it's sitting in my account bank for time time being.

Got the free T6 ship voucher, and Cryptic won't let me buy the Dominion temporal ship. The only reason I want it is to collect the Dominion ships for a toon. Sigh. Maybe it will become available at a later date or I should try another UFP ship.

Yeah certain "new" ships would be disallowed and they said the list will be updated (I suspect they also will remove ships no longer considered "new" from the list and not just add things to it).

Looks like I'll be buying Zen, the Phoenix event is almost over so the price will have dropped as low as it's going to get for a while.
