The Molecular Reconstruction Mechanic orignially debuted with the AOY Temporal ships, but has since found its way to other temporally-displaced ships such as the Temporal Dreadnaughts, the TOS ships and Sphere Builder vessels. Most recently the T6 versions of the Ambassador and Vor’cha both received this as well. Not exactly sure why in the last two cases, but I’m not complaining!
This Mechanic is of particular interest to my main toon Heidy, which I’ll explain later in the post. So let’s get right to it.

A couple of canon Trek ships that had been requested for AGES are finally getting their T6 versions: The Ambassador-class (best known as the class the Enterprise-C belongs to), and the Klingon mainstay during the TNG era, the Vorcha.

Cryptic announced a new upcoming ship bundle, called “Recon Destroyers”.

Whew! That was a lot of Ship Mastery grinding over the weekend!
See, Cryptic decided to nerf the amount of Ship Mastery XP awarded in Red Alerts, so there is a lot more grinding needed to get Ship Traits. On top of that, the new Jemmie Vanguard ships come with a new feature, namely a level VI Mastery that allows that Ship Trait to become Account-Wide. This is not a bad feature, except the part about level VI requiring roughly the same amount of XP from level I to level V! Which means the amount of grinding just DOUBLED.
So, yeah. After a weekend of grinding, I still only got 3 of the 4 Jemmie Vanguard ships done. But after flown all four ships for a bit, I want to write a quick impression on those ships.

Cryptic just published the stats of the new DS9 lockbox ships. Now these days I don’t really want to dive into discussions of ship stats anymore, but the JH Battlecruiser here needs to be highlighted.
