Content gated behind a paywall is a terrible idea. It divides the community, and makes the good thing of the f2p model (more people to play with) irrelevant. I suffered enough of this when I was playing Dungeon and Dragons Online, with f2p players dropping without warning when trying to get into a premium quest, leaving a party short and delaying the whole thing until a new member could be recruited into the party.

One of the best things about the F2P model of STO is that they had the wisdom to learn from the mistakes of other F2P games. A 50 level player can play the same content, no matter if it is "silver", "silver former gold" or "gold". And despite what naysayers and entitlement queens might say, this is a good thing.
