Of course as a game balance affecting ship, the Galaxy X should be available in-game but Cryptic insist we not only pay a monthly fee, not only must we pay for new content, we must also sell the game to others!

This goes far beyond the paid-for new areas in CO and yet some people don't see it.
I also don't believe in UFO abductions.

I hate to admit it, but I'm not a fan of the current STO C-Store policies at the moment.

In CO, everything was accolade unlockable. With the new accolade system only now coming to Tribble, I can only hope Cryptic rectifies the situation by placing ALL current C-Store items in as accolade rewards.

Then again , I suspect some people will still moan endlessly about how the rich can just buy their way through the game and don't have to work for the rewards, likely in threads complaining about the accolade rewards being tooo haaard to get... But I could be pleasantly surprised.
