Of course it's a matter of perspective, and my perspective is this:

"You bought the LTS for the sake of unlimited access to STO for the life of the game, which includes a 500 zen/month stipend."

So, each month I would get 500Z "free", but really part of my LTS cost went to the stipend and each month that LTS membership value decreases per month. Let's say the LTS = $300.00, then after 12 months I've "paid" $25 per month. After 24 months, I've "paid" $12.50 per month, etc etc.

Some part of each monthly "payment" goes to the stipend, whatever it is does not matter, just that it's there.

Efectively, by paying for LTS membership, I'm paying for that stipend. The longer the game survives the less each month I've paid to access the game which includes a Zen stipend.

I'm not saying I'm 100% right on this, but it's a perspective I share with the OP - that nothing is free.
