The decision not to seems sufficient.

I wasn't aware that I should track each day in-game as if I was an AA addict counting days of sobriety.

I guess maybe I should, given the potential for the game to be shut down tomorrow, but that seems unlikely in the near future. It also seems fitting in a game so heavily designed around facilitating you parting with your money to fulfill some sort of childhood nerdgasm.

The less time I spend in-game, and the more that time spent in-game revolves around a checklist of daily activities I need to slog through, even if it's just five minutes a day, the less enthused I am to log in at all, and the more I question why I even bother. The truth is, if it wasn't Trek, I wouldn't at all (actually, I wouldn't even have given it the time of day to get to the rep system, even as a F2P).
