Seriously you NEED to update the description on steam!

Wish we didnt need to tell you things like this... pretty simple!

I dont see the logic in this... the game goes F2P on Jan 17th. So why would anyone buy it now? :confused:

You would still have to buy the game most likely its the same with other f2p games.

I started CO (and bought a lifetime) after F2P. I never paid a dime for the actual game client.

While that may be how it is for other games, it won't be for Star Trek. As the F2P FAQ states:

Simply, anyone can play Star Trek Online at no cost. No subscription is required. You don't even have to buy the game. You can download and play for free!

Because a F2P download client won't have:
Original Star Trek Uniform Set: Three uniforms from the original series (blue, red, yellow).
Exclusive “KHAAAN!” Emote: An unforgettable moment from the second Star Trek Film. This exclusive emote allows players to relive Kirk’s unforgettable moment of fury, with the timeless cry… “KHAAAN!”
Exclusive Klingon Blood Wine Toast Emote: Raise a glass like a Klingon! Greet other players with an exclusive Klingon gesture –the blood wine toast.
Unique Registry Prefix: Give your ship the coveted NX prefix, seen only on a handful of elite Starfleet vessels like the Defiant, 22nd century Enterprise, and Prometheus.
Unique Ship Item: Automated Defense Battery. This Tactical Module grants any ship a passive 360 arc attack power with a short range.

The game also includes a Steam-exclusive Phaser Turret – This Tactical Station Mod allows you to deploy a small space phaser turret. After redeeming your key, your exclusive item will be available in the C-Store’s Special Unlocks tab.

And don't forget, you also get 500 CP, so it's worth it, even with F2P coming pretty soon.
