From what I understand, there's two types of C-Points at work: Game-Specific (from stipends or earned by trading dilithium) and Account-Wide (purchased with money). There's no way to distinguish one from the other, which needs to be looked at, Cryptic.
Any C-Points you purchase with actual money can be used in any Cryptic game, but C-Points from stipends or traded dilithium can only be used in the specific game you get them from. This was probably done so that no one could farm dilithium and trade them for C-Points in STO, and then use them in Champions, which would mean less money from C-Store sales for Cryptic.
