I wish STO and Cryptic would have extended the life-time joining period. This is tax refund time, and I'm getting mine very soon (gotta luv that e-file!). My Maryland State refund will be in this week. Hopefully someone will reconsider and extend the time line to become a life member.
I've been a "trekkie" since Pike had/lost the helm, and I see STO advancing in it's story and mission lines. I've played WoW off and on for about 5-years, taking a break now and again. If anyone has played WoW, sometimes it can get a bit tedious. From what I've seen so far, and having read reviews (good and bad) from those who were able to play the beta, I don't see STO as becoming a "tedious" game.
