Just as an idea, howabout y’all open quest lines for each of the “special” premium ships like Loki, Razor, Blood Tormentor, etc. They could be just like the Nyx quest, but only open once you reach a certain rank, and stay open forever until you complete them. This way, players would have the choice of doing 90-120 missions for a ship over the course of a month minimum, or be able to buy the ships outright. I already have all the special ships (bought before they were DLC) but I’m just suggesting this for all the other players.
The normal premium ships would remain how they are. This would only affect “special” ships.
