considering you can farm Delithium and sell it for Zen yea the cost of the respect is not that bad.

Most other MMO's allow for respecs using in-game currencies. Yes. It is that bad.

Yea, but that isn't retroactive, so if I subscribe to gold now I would get not a single respec token.

Pick gold for a month if you leveling a ton is it worth every penney. you get repec token for every 10 levels. Sorry this dos not carry over to old tons.

Right, so my choices are either relevel my toons, or give them money to respec. What I'd like to do with the zen is wait until they release the vesta, then save the rest of it for the new DOFF pack which is going to have the advanced transwarp drive coil in it so I can get that on my klingon characters.

I made a thread in the star trek online discussion that never gained traction. The $5 cost is obscene, It needs to be removed.

The game keeps and is evolving, I can't spend $5 every time I want to be of any use in PVP. The issue becomes compounded when you have more then 1 toon.

Agreed. Particularly since it's not retroactive. $5 is just mean. :(
