If you remove subscription fees, you remove the reason they were offered in-game to begin with.
Another reason why I was against F2P when the conversion concept was first brought up by Cryptic. Forgot who replied in that old thread but their response was "We will see what happens."

Soon ---it will hit the fan and STO will forever be a downgraded, not worth-while MMO...if only the F2P members where those who have been struct hard the past years with the world economey and not the bums that'll be pouring in...though the C-Store focus will probably turn more people off after a short amount of time.

Oh well RIP P2P had potential.
