As far as I can tell Gold does not appear to be a major part of the plan. If you're a gold member for awhile, then decide to go back to silver, you've still done quite a bit to pay for the game. Especially if you ever make C-Store purchases, however rarely. Honestly, despite it seeming kind of over-adverstised in the game (durn lockboxes) this is very obviously a system is trying to keep the field level and not create a pay-to-win situation. It would be nice if more MMOs followed a model like this, especially since STO is reportedly doing rather well lately.
