Other items such as additional slots are necessary to be sold through the C-Store. In order to give you these additional slots Cryptic needs more storage space, which costs money. You are essentially paying for a portion of that space.

I don't know what you're true problem with the C-Store is. Perhaps you want all those items and can't afford it. Maybe you want a 100% free Star Trek MMO. Whatever you're reason, that's your opinion and its fine. Just understand that the C-Store is a way to support this game even further, and I see nothing wrong with giving them a little extra support.
well i guess the problem is that many other companies have much much more customization options in their games. Here the variations without C-Store are, to say it nice, very limited.

I am fine with C-Store for things like additional Charslot.

But I cant agree with the customization only argument many talk about. We know that there are things that give you other not achievable options obtained through C-Store that are not obtainable ingame. I dont know why ppl still use that argument if you can easy look through C-Store and find out the items that dont fall under this made statement about "looks cool only"
But feel free to show me a Cruiser with Cloak obtainable ingame...
