No. You get the stipend no matter when you sub.

In the Features Matrix for Gold Members (monthly or Lifetime) I notice that there is a benefit listed as "Monthly Stipend" and this is described as 500 Promotional Points with the "?" and this is explained as "Promotional Points differ from Zen in that they can only be used in Star Trek Online...." so this then brings up several additional questions listed below:

What are Promotional Points?

It's just Zen that can only be used in STO.

Where does a Star Trek Online Gold Member find them?

It's automatically added to your C-store balance in game.

If they are received monthly, then when does this occur?

Usually the day after you begin your sub. It may take a few days though.

Do these Promotional Points convert to Zen?
If yes, then how do we convert them to Zen?
If yes, then is there a limit of how much we can convert at a given time?

Not applicable. As mentioned above, it's just Zen that is bound to STO. There are no time limits or anything. You can save it up as long as you want.

I want to Thank You in advance for your assistance with these questions.
