Ship exchange for store credits/arena pass

If I exchange a ship I got in a package do I lose the arena pass that came with the package? I want to get another package but it does not come with an arena pass.

If you melt a package all of the items int that package go away. An item not in the package and separate should not be lost.

yeah, that’s what I figured, though I did read an article on multiple packages. If I buy a different package it just opens up another char slot on the account and I can still access all the items from both packages on 1 char.

Eventually (when the game nears release or is released?) the packages can be broken up. Having multiple packages gives you multiple character slots and you can assign which items go to which character once the Persistent Universe starts up.
