The best we can do is just let Cryptic know our feelings on the matter, which both sides have done. Some more nicely than others.

Meanwhile, for those that keep mentioning the TOS uniforms (not you)...The words exclusive or unique never appeared in relation to those uniforms (Or the joined Trill). But Both words appeared next to every other items in that package:

Don't get me wrong, I'm annoyed they gave it out other ways too. I gave up having a physical copy of the game (which I prefer) because I wanted those TOS uniforms. But they never said they were exclusive or unique. So I can only be annoyed at myself for not asking first, like I did back when Champions LT was offered.
I saw number 3rd definition it is out of context to the post. The post only says the uniform is unique, but says nothing about the offer being unique at all.

the Champions site I quote "Lifetime subscriptions include:

"* Access to the Star Trek Online Closed Beta, beginning later this year!
* Exclusive Art Deco costume set
* Exclusive Retro Future costume set, available only to lifetime subscribers
* Unique Mirror Universe outfit for Star Trek Online, available at the game’s release
* Exclusive in-game Foxbat action figure, available only to lifetime subscribers
* Eight additional character slots!"

It depend on the which advertisement you look at, steam's site promoted the DDE extras and were labeled as exclusive

I further add this, the DDE extras as they are listed currently to show the difference between EXCLUSIVE and this shows how my definition of UNIQUE is correct.


* TOS Uniform Set (in-game item): 3 Uniforms from the Original series (blue, red, yellow)
* Joined Trill: Play as a Joined Trill. Joined Trill come with a symbiote that grants you several lifetimes of experience. The "Joined" species trait grants you a bonus to 5 skills.
* Exclusive "KHAAAN!" Emote (in-game item): An unforgettable moment from the second Star Trek Film. This exclusive emote allows players to relive Kirk's unforgettable moment of fury, with the timeless cry... "KHAAAN!"
* Exclusive Klingon Blood Wine Toast Emote (in-game item): Raise a glass like a Klingon! Greet and interact with other players with an exclusive Klingon gesture -the blood wine toast.
* Unique Registry Prefix (in-game item): Give your ship the coveted NX prefix, seen only on a handful of elite Starfleet vessels like the Defiant, 22nd century Enterprise, and Prometheus."
* Unique Ship Item (in-game item): - Automated Defense Battery. This Tactical Module that grants any ship a passive 360 arc attack power with a short range."

*** This post is very similar, to the Champions and it also describes UNIQUE as TYPE and not EXCLUSIVITY, to this package or this offer.
