I hear what you're saying but I think it's premature. Wait and see what the retail version of the game looks like. I've been playing the beta for just a few days and already I've noticed massive improvements in server stability etc.
I think there will be bugs at launch but let's wait and see if they're biggies. Also, buying a year's subscription to any MMO is a gamble. I'm sure STO will look very different in a year's time quite apart from any bugs. It's part and parcel of buying such a long subscription.
Personally, I don't think it's worth it but that's me.
I think you have to appreciate that launching an MMO is a bit of a delicate art. You have to hit the launch point at just the right part of your development cycle so that you can be earning the money to develop the game as you are still developing it. They just can't afford to take this game back in house for a year as you suggest. That's a simply HUGE sum of money you are talking about there.
This definitely is posted in the wrong place though lol
