Yeah!! That was one of the first things I was looking for. I HATE monthly subscriptions. If I want to play for a bit, then leave and come back to it, and I know there will be people playing the game for a LONG time. Then I maybe don't mind paying the lifetime fee. I love Star Trek so much I didn't think twice to do the lifetime.
Another thing I hate about WoW is that everyone is so elitist in the game. "Yeah I've been playing for 5+ years, I've maxed out everything possible in the game. I can't be bothered to answer an easy little question to help out some new player!"
I seriously just asked "where can I sell stuff?" I got a response, and I'm NOT joking. "type /camp and close your eyes for 20 seconds." I typed it in and saw my character beginning to log out. I responded "... jerk" though wanted to say much more...
We're all friends here on STO, and that in the end I'm sure will make this game better than WoW.
