I have to agree. 8.99 + VAT is hardly competitive with other games and I can't see it being particularly viable beyond the initial few months of novelty.

STO is a fun game but it just doesn't have the breadth, depth, polish or stability of many games that cost 8.99 INCLUDING VAT (compared to 10.56 for STO).

Just feels a bit like they look at Star Trek fans as an easy bunch to milk for money. That's a tragic shame.

10.56 compared to 8.99 a month is hardly a life altering amount but it does make me, at least, look at the relative value, whereas if it were 8.99 I probably wouldn't. I can't see STO holding enough value to keep me subbed for more than 2-3 months at this apparently unjustified price point.
