The special "Half-priced Heroes" event scheduled for Apr 6th EST (GMT-5) was struck by a bug that prevented Commanders from hiring Captains at the discounted rate. We are deeply sorry for the trouble but happy to report this bug has been crushed!
If you hired Captains on Apr 6th, the discount you should've enjoyed will be reimbursed to your Space Bux balance. A second round of "Half-priced Heroes" will be held with the next content update (and we'll have our bug spray ready)!
Thanks for your understanding and support. Keep calm and ship on!
