The Legacy Pack is a C-Store bundle sale. Cryptic has put $181.00 worth of upcoming Romulan C-Store items into a bundle and is selling it for $125.00. If you buy it all once you get it for 30% off. You can buy it in the C-Store individually, and not on sale, when LoR launches on the 21st. The only things you cannot buy in the C-Store are the Titles and the 4-pack of Rom doffs.

You don't need any of it to play a Romulan any more then you need any of the existing C-Store items to play a Federation or Klingon character. Yes, having some of the items can give you a bit of an advantage, but it's not required. And you can always buy any wanted item via Dilithium grinding at a later date if you feel you must have it.

As far as it being Pay To Win, the game has been that way since it launched over 3 years ago and started selling C-Store items. Of course one has to ask what are you winning? If you don't PvP then you're not winning anything as you can do any of the PvE content as easily with free items as you can purchased items.
STO is about my Liberated Borg Federation Captain with his Breen 1st Officer, Jem'Hadar Tactical Officer, Liberated Borg Engineering Officer, Android Ops Officer, Photonic Science Officer, Gorn Science Officer, and Reman Medical Officer jumping into their Jem'Hadar Carrier and flying off to do missions for the new Romulan Empire. But for some players allowing a T5 Connie to be used breaks the canon in the game.
