I just don't see this game lasting much longer, regardless of how much money anyone throws at it. PWE doesn't deserve to be involved in this franchise.
Whether PWE is good for the game or the franchise is a debate that will never end due to it having no correct answer, but I doubt that the game is dying.

It's nowhere near as good as it could be, but money is flowing into the game, and Cryptic is finally trying some risky and potentially unpopular additions and changes (New Romulus, Reputation), and I believe that's a good sign.

What PWE's impact on STO's position isn't important, what does matter is that it is in a good enough position that Cryptic is willing to experiment with it. I think it's fair to say that the moment that Cryptic and PWE stop experimenting and start to "Play it Safe", THEN we panic.
