Just to point out...

The pearls box is 5 lobi, not 50.

And I think you're missing the point of the Summer and Winter events.

They're not about a giveaway, or a new kind of ship. They're about getting players into the game. Grind=time. The more players they get into the game at any given time, the better their numbers look, the higher potential they have for people to want to stay in the game, and the better their potential sales get.

They're a kind of advertisement. If they tried to sell the corvette outright, few people would shell out $20-25 for one. I wouldn't.

This way, a few impatient types shell out a lot more than $25 to get one early and a lot of other players are logged on daily for a few weeks and possibly getting hooked on playing STO.
