Yeah, as i mentioned earlier, when the Delta was available, i did Omega > Gamma > Avenger > Delta. $10 for what i guess would be considered a glass cannon. Its certainly likely to be more useful for what most people are interested in during the alpha stuff. If you're looking at sticking with 1 ship, i suspect the Avenger would be the best 'jack of all trades' ship for next to nothing. Oh, also, you'll need to buy something in order to be considered a backer, if all you've done is activate a code you've not directly contributed to the fund, and having 'backer' status has its perks. You get the odd non-essential item, like in-game currency, posters & stuff for the hangar, and access to the 'free fly' ships when they do them, like atm the Gladius is available to try till Friday. The cheapest item is $5 and thats enough, its also the cost of the Avenger CCU, which following the path i listed at the top, turns your Omega into an Avenger, with all the original perks in tact, just a ship-swap (non-reverseable too).
