First, all good MMOs charge a monthly subscription fee. This is normal practice and has been for over 10 years now.

Try explaining it to your wife like this. "Well sweetheart, $15 a month works out to about 50 cents a day. That's not bad for a great source of entertainment. We spend more than that on cable TV every month. We usually spend more than that when we go out to lunch, or when we go see a single movie. And I can always get it cheaper by purchasing a 6-month or 1-year subscription."

By the way, if you purchase a 1-year subscription for $120.00 that works out to a mere $10 per month, or about 33 cents per day. A lifetime subscription at $240 (offer expires tomorrow) means that you'd essentially be playing for free after 16 months. If you played for 36 months that works out to about $6.66 per month or about 22 cents a day.

So perhaps you may want to go here http://www.startrekonline.com/exclusive_specials and consider one of those payment options. You'll have to act fast though, those prices expire tomorrow.
