What it all boils down to is that you don't have to spend a single cent in STO to enjoy all the content or be able to hold your own For an f2p title that is extraordinary :

- all content is available for everyone ( no adventure packs or anything like that ) regardless of if they spend cash
- you get a free ship when leveling at 10,20,30 and 40 th level . The rear admiral ship you get at level 40 is very good and it isn't necessary to buy any c-store ship
- even if you do want to buy a ship there's the possibility to exchange an ingame currency ( dilithium ) for Zen and thus acquire that ship without spending a dime of RL cash .


People can fault STO for a lot of things, but its F2P model isn't one of them. It's one of the most progressive f2p model in MMOs.
