Indeed. And I'm not even a "Trekkie" either. I'm a "Trekker" who's a fan of Star Trek, Star Wars, and other sci-fi.

I'll probably get a lifetime sub with SWTOR coming out next year, but I'm certainly not going to be duped into all of the pre-order promotion crud. I'm sure Bioware/EA will be a little more honest than Cryptic with "exclusives" and such, but all-in-all Cryptic very much soured me on MMO promotion/propaganda.

You can get Voyager, DS9, TNG, and others from Walmart now for around $40/boxed season. But yes, overpriced when they came out which is why I never bothered.
