This is just the reality of F2P, and as others have mentioned, is not so much of a "rip-off" as most people here have suggested.

The same thing goes for the other f2p "elements" like e.g. lockboxes...companies everywhere make money with some sort gambling and Im sure almost everyone knows that the odds are not in the players favor...also the new boxes have better drop rates and there 4 different ways to get a fleet ship.

You want to talk real Rip-Off?
Try "fortune-tellers" or "mediums" or multi-level marketing!

Finally all of this is optional, none of it is required to play the game!
All the core elements of the game are available for free!

But there is no such thing as a free lunch...the game has to be maintained and expanded and when your f2p that works by introducing things like payed ships and lockboxes...

Only thing Im concerned about, is wether those proceeds go into STO or are used for other projects..
