I disagree. If you want anything bad enough, the onus is on you to do what is necessary to get it.
It seems YOU don't get it, because you're buying into the cynical situation Cryptic have created without even thinking about it.
"Ooooh if you want the Galaxy X so bad then why don't you go and get 5 peope to subcribe!"
Nevermind the fact that most of us are simply incapable of getting 5 people even interested in STO, let alone subscribe. The fact is Cryptic are attempting to force us to do their job for them (marketing) by using something they KNOW we all want.
