Games have been cross promoting for a long time now. You see it all the time on X-box. Here is an example of one across consoles:

Buy Dragon Age and get Dragon Armor for your character on Mass Effect.

This is one of THOUSANDS of examples out there in the marketplace. It is a tactic that works, otherwise it would not be done.

Nuff said.
I said "alienate", not "kept from playing"

Nothing wrong with cross promoting if it is done correctly. The MU are a part of the Star Trek mythology, the dragon armor is not a part of Mass Effect mythology. Bioware got it right, Cryptic did not. If Cryptic had done what Bioware did they you would have unique CO uniforms to wear to show your investment in another Cryptic game in STO. In this case your argument is simply invalid.
