All Covenant of Honor Fleet Members
First, I want to thank everyone (past and present) for their dedication to contributing to our Fleet Holdings.
We are closing in on finishing the project sets to get us to Tier 3 upgrades. As of this writing, we need to run two (2) more of the 1,200 XP and two (2) of the 200 XP Provisioning projects in both the Research and Operations tracks. This will take us to where we can begin the T3 upgrades to the Research and Operations tracks. We must complete both track upgrades before we can do the Spire upgrade to T3.
All of the upgrades will be expensive in materials and time. For example, the Research T3 upgrade will take about 9,000 Fleet marks (10,500 – our 15% discount = 8,925), about 640,000 Dilithium, 850 Science/Medical common Duty Officers, and lots of other commodities. Once started, the upgrades take ten (10) days to finish.
Once these projects are up, please focus on the upgrades so we can get them started as soon as possible. I would also request that while an upgrade is started, we continue to gather Fleet Marks for the next upgrade so we can start it as soon as possible as well. If you need Fleet Credits while the project upgrades are going, there will be a couple of Spire provisions missions as well as the Starbase Military projects for you to add your Marks, commodities, etc for Fleet Credit.
Once we get the Tier 3 upgrades done (and the Spire Tailor), then it will be an “all hands on deck” focus on the Starbase Military track for our Tier 5 Shipyard. We will focus on that until the next Fleet Holding comes out (probably around in November with Expansion #2). Once a new Fleet Holding comes out, we will move the shipyard to a “secondary priority” for Fleet holding projects.
One final note, please remember that all Fleet Holdings projects with two tracks should start at the same time. This way, one track doesn’t get ahead of the other. If you find that you can start one but not the other at the same time, please don’t start until the other one is ready. The EXCEPTION to this rule is the Starbase Military (in which we are laser focused to get to Tier 5 Shipyard) and any Provisioning projects for Holdings that are already Tier 3.
As always, thank you for your time and effort. Together, we continue to live up to the motto of our fleet. “We are not now that strength which in old days moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time and fate, but strong in will to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.”
