I'm part of the community, and I posted to this thread, and I disagree totally with the entire notion of game-item microtransactions of any kind (including "fluff") in a monthly fee based MMO.

So sorry, not everyone agrees with you either. :p

Sorry but almost all MMO's charge subscription fees and charge you for content. You pay for expansions in other MMO's. It's worked that way for years. Micro-transactions are in all the popular MMO's now.

That's really not a problem, all I was attempting to state in my previous post, was simply that the community members who don't agree with the C-Store are entitled to their opinion, and that the community members who do agree with the C-Store are also entitled to their opinion.

I also want you to know that both the negative posters feedback and the positive posters feedback in this thread are extremely helpful, not to me, but to Cryptic. Some posts are more helpful than others, but the point is that everyone is entitled to voice their feedback on the C-Store and the C-Store products within this thread.

Also, please bear in mind that no where within the OP does it state that any of the C-Store product suggestions from the community should have a price tag on them, or be for free, at the end of the day, that is Cryptics prerogative.


If you read through this thread, you would realise that what I have done, is gather feedback from the community members who have purchased C-Store products as well as those community members who have not paid for C-Store products because they have stated that there are no products within the C-Store that they are interested in.

So then I ask them a number of questions which are located within the OP, my favourite question is number #5 (What are your Suggestions for future C-Store Products?), and then once the community has provided their feedback and suggestions, I turn it into something positive.

I co-ordinate all of the feedback and suggestions, then list them within the OP, making it extremely easy for the Devs to see what the community really does want to spend their CP on, which in helps Cryptic make the extra money they need to hire new staff, get more content created faster, more updates released faster and will also give Cryptic a better chance of being able to afford the Star Trek actors / actresses fees, which allows for future voice over work, and in return helps the community by providing a better, quicker, more efficient driven content filled game.

# 375 TOS Bridge News Update!

Here's a quote from dstahl, taken from the classic bridge pack thread.

I wouldn't be surprised to see these bridges as C-Store items down the road.

These ranks should come after the characters name (eg: qurgh HoD, qurgh la', etc)

Klingon Pets:

Targ (or a way to make my targ pet grow up... breedable targs would be amazing!)
Jackel Mastiff
Lizard Monster Dog

Klingon uniforms:

Command cloak (like Krugh wore in STIII)
Now Updating the OP with the New Information!

Here's the full list of Klingon ranks as written in Marc Okrand's Klingon for the Galactic Traveler:

'aj (admiral)
Sa' (general)
totlh (commodore)
'ech (bridadier)
HoD (captain)
la' (commander)
Sogh (lieutenant)
lagh (ensign)
ne' (yoeman)

There are also ranks for non-commissioned QaS (troops):

bu' (sergeant)
Da' (corporal)

Note: The Klingon spellings of these ranks are correct. Klingon words do not follow English capitalization rules. Only the Klingon letters D, H, S and I capitalized and they are always capitalized (except for the h in gh and ch).

For an example of a Klingon command cloak look at this picture: http://twitpic.com/4qtds. The Klingon on the left (is me) is wearing a command cloak.

Thank you for the feedback you have provided so far, it has been extremely helpful and I also found a number of images of Klingons wearing the Command Cloak.
