I spent 0 Cryptic points for now. I will most likely buy a lot of points during season 2 if Cryptic delivers what they said. For instance, I don't need a new bridge for now since I almost never use it, but once they give us stuff to do inside the ship, I'll probably buy several of them.
I'm holding off on spending any of my points until the other ships are released. I don't like this first one and want to see what the others are like. If I don't like them, I might just buy some extra slots and the playable races for now.
If they let us do stuff on our bridges I'll invest in the bridge packs at a later date. But for now I'm holding on to my points.
So far I haven't purchased any C-Store points for STO. I just used the 240 for taking the survey.
Purchased the Imperial Class Assault Cruiser model. I love the design, except for the odd tin roofs on the neck.
I plan to purchase more from the C-Store down the road in the form of all ship models and likely races (especially that Caitian). Bridges, etc are purchases for when we have more to do in the ship than stand around and talk.
240 points for a Klingon. He works great, even though he's constantly frowning, but he needs a sash. I would pay extra for that.
280 points for a rename. It worked, but they should explain that you have to log out and use it on the character screen.
My only critic at the C-Store points are the following: Tellarites are too expensive in comparison with Ferengi (if you go after how common they should be in Starfleet, did I miss an awesome exclusive trait?), and there isn't enough stuff yet.
I bought 500 pionts and recieved 240 ponts for survey and some more for preorder bunus or something like that.
SO far I bought a ferengi, and A new bridge option. So not a lot. I don't mind the c-store. I would have had a problem if the respec was c-store only but since they offer and ingame option I am happy even though i think it's current c-store price is way too high. Only fluff stuff should ever be in the c-store. Never anything needed for gameplay.
He works great, even though he's constantly frowning, but he needs a sash. I would pay extra for that.
If you're referring to the sash-like thing that Worf frequently wore it's actually called a baldric. Just a fun fact for the day.
I've purchased 0 Cryptic points. I've spent 0 Cryptic points. I have 500 from my pre-order bonus and 240 from the survey bonus. I guess I'm waiting for the C-store to have something I'm interested in purchasing. What would I be interesting in purchasing? Don't know.
I did a little research on the forums first, as I have a lifetime sub, so I allready had 5 Character Slots and after finding out that the amount of Character Slots is not currently limited, I purchased the "Additional Character Slots (500 Cryptic Points for 2 character slots)" which totaled my Character Slots up to 7 max, but if i want to, I can purchase more.
I also read a very interesting statment from dstahl which I have quoted for you below.

So I'm very happy with my lucky number of 7 Character Slots for now and now that I can have more in the future if I ever feel I need more.
I decided to purchase the "Playable Federation Klingon (240 Cryptic Points)", well because I had 240 CP from the survey and Klingons are cool, plus they have pretty awesome traits to start with.
I purchased the "Playable Federation Ferengi (80 Cryptic Points)" and the "Federation Bridge Pack II: Light Cruiser (120 Cryptic Points)" as they total up to 200 CP together, I was never really interested in the Ferengi, but I now have the option open to me and the Bridges are basically retextures of the Bridge from the ship you start the tutorial in. There are some changes to the layouts of Bridge Stations, Consoles etc and the lighting as well as color differences are pretty cool.
I was invited to one of the new Star Crusier Bridges by a fellow player and got to hang out there for a good hour or so, and I've gotta say, the first thing I thought was this bridge is huge! There's some nice attention to detail to, like the arrangement of bridge stations, chairs and there are a number of images on the consoles, images of corridors, image of a ship (not sure which one). The view screen seems a bit small comapred to teh rest of the bridge but the lighting effects near the view screen are very neat.
So yeah I purchased the "Federation Bridge Pack I: Star Cruiser (200 Cryptic Points)", but I don't think I would have it it wasn't for that player inviting me over to their bridge.
Lastly I purchased the "Klingon Empire Bridge Pack I: Battle Cruiser (200 Cryptic Points)" simply because they look awesome, all industrial, dirty and well, Klingon! LoL
So I have 900 CP left, what else do I have left in the C-Store to purchase?
Retrain (400 Cryptic Points)
Additional Character Slots (500 Cryptic Points for 2 character slots)
Captain Rename (280 Cryptic Points per token)
Federation Assault Cruiser - Imperial Class (240 Cryptic Points)
I would really much rarther avoid spending CP on the "Retrain (400 Cryptic Points)" option, as you can do this for ingame currency, you also get a number free Respec tokens and I can also be very careful in what skills I train in the first place.
I have enough character slots for now and i have no need to change my characters name as I got it right the first time, but it is nice to know the option is available and if I really wasn't happy with my character, I would probably just save his costume, delete him and recreate him, then play from scratch.
I don't have a engineer and I'm currently only a Lt Commander as I've been playing very casually while waiting for updates, so the "Federation Assault Cruiser - Imperial Class (240 Cryptic Points)" can wait.
The "Playable Federation Tellarite (200 Cryptic Points)" has some nice traits, but they really just don't appeal to me, I've just never been interested in dwarfs.
