The price will go up to US$299, and it won't have the promotional extras, but the lifetime will always be available.
I don't know if that's entirely accurate. Here's what the FAQ has to say:

Q: Do I have to pre-order to subscribe?
A: Only the special Lifetime and 12-month subscriptions require pre-orders. Our regular recurring subscriptions do not require you to pre-order a copy of Star Trek Online. However, those interested in purchasing the 12-month or Lifetime promotional subscription plans must have first redeemed a valid pre-order key here at the official website. Pre-order keys are supplied by the retailers themselves.

I took it to mean that lifetime and 12-month subscription options were limited time offers, not that the prices were the limited time offers. Anyway, you be the judge.
