This comes up fairly frequently.

To recap:
  • Cryptic will obviously not announce exactly when sales are, since that'd stop most people from buying it when it's not on sale.
  • Executive Producer Dan Stahl has said there will be approximately two lifetime sales per year.
  • There have been 2 sales (bringing price from $300 to $200) since the game went F2P, both in 2012: June 5-29 and October 9-November 12.
  • Lifetime members receive all the veteran rewards (from 100 days to 1000 days) immediately. They will then get a 500 zen stipend each month for the lifetime of the game. Additional perks include ability to play as a Liberated Borg Human or Klingon.
  • They also get gold member benefits like expanded bank and inventory slots, character slots, respec tokens when they level up, etc.

If I had to make a guess, Legacy of Romulus would be a good time for a lifetime sale with all the new players checking it out and old players returning.
