*grimaces* I wouldn't know. I haven't actually bought anything with the 35ish emblems I've accumulated thus far.

Well, there's always the 'ultimate' reward of earning enough emblems to get a retrofit ship too. Slap the Tier 5 Nebula and Excelsior retrofits as obtainable via emblems (maybe even the Galaxy X?), give a good emblem reward to PvP and maybe the Excelsior/Nebula fans that haven't bought them on C-Store will start PvPing their butts off to get them. (heck, maybe FvK matches give bonus emblems too, just to get some Feds out of the FvF matches to bother fighting klingons if that's a problem)

Following that idea, I'd say that breathing more life in the revamped PvP aspect of STO is more important to sustain a healthy playerbase than C-Store monetary gains. I think that keeping the clientele interested will provide more dividends in the future for Cryptic.
