It sodding well BETTER only be referring to the SyFy bonuses (I notice that particular paragraph, while present on the SyFy bundle, does not appear on the standard Atari version or their Deluxe Digital Edition). Folks like me, who have already committed to preordering multiple versions (me = Gamestop + Deluxe Digital Edition for Connie-class + TOS uniforms), would be a tad put out if Cryptic did a last-minute release of a version containing all those split-up preorder bonuses for only 50 bucks.

Oh I agree especially since you can't cancel previous orders due to the Beta codes

Now with this new bundle so late in the game do those who already pre-ordered get any benefits...
I first I thought that the Tribble would be a rare item come to find out it doesn’t look like it will be.
What else are they going to do give life time subscription members a monthly due that they have to pay for? Cyptic Why can’t you get together?
You offer special items that affect 0.05% of your gamers “TYPE 8 SHUTTLE”good job on that one too by the way. Give us a break already.
Will every one get a tier 3 ship just for buying a game after the pre-orders

Neodymium deflector dish? Bah.

Now, if it was Dysprosium, that'd be hilarious.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure their statement there is legalese shorthand for 'all pre-order content listed on this page'.

It feels a little ironic that syfy is offering a Star Trek game pre-order after the statement they made about sci-fi being too geeky for them:

"The name Sci Fi has been associated with geeks and dysfunctional, antisocial boys in their basements with video games and stuff like that, as opposed to the general public and the female audience in particular.” - Tim Brooks (Who helped launch the Sci-Fi Channel originally.)

Honestly, sci-fi/syfy lost my viewership a long long time ago, but their statements pretty much burned the bridge for me. If anyone here is a self-respecting science fiction fan, I would hope they would not patronise anything done by syfy.

That's what I think and I hope we're right, I just wish we could get an official answer on that one

Actually, the 'Official' Answer is on the Star Trek Online Preorder Retaiers page...

ROFL, I was wondering why they made that silly change... Great, way to both alienate your fanbase AND look even sillier to the general population. Is a lobotomy required to get a management position in the entertainment industry?

I bought Star Trek Online from GameTap yesterday. It cost the same price as this package that you just announced, and came with less stuff.

Thanks Cryptic! This really makes me feel great about giving you my money.
