I dont see the logic in this... the game goes F2P on Jan 17th. So why would anyone buy it now?

there is no sense at all in buying a game that is going free to play in less than a month.

Because a F2P download client won't have:
Original Star Trek Uniform Set: Three uniforms from the original series (blue, red, yellow).
Exclusive “KHAAAN!” Emote: An unforgettable moment from the second Star Trek Film. This exclusive emote allows players to relive Kirk’s unforgettable moment of fury, with the timeless cry… “KHAAAN!”
Exclusive Klingon Blood Wine Toast Emote: Raise a glass like a Klingon! Greet other players with an exclusive Klingon gesture –the blood wine toast.
Unique Registry Prefix: Give your ship the coveted NX prefix, seen only on a handful of elite Starfleet vessels like the Defiant, 22nd century Enterprise, and Prometheus.
which means nothing. it would be cheaper to simply wait a month and buy the points needed to get those things

and paying $7.49 for the tos uniforms is a ripoff. nothing else in that list is worth paying for.

You would still have to buy the game most likely its the same with other f2p games.
you don't buy the game in other free to play games. that would not make sense.
