your ship has sailed anyway. It goes live and exclusive tomorrow so cough up around $175 ( providing you can find 5 copies of STO at around $20 ) or see how long your friends remain your friends after bringing them here at their expense.
Actually it goes live when 1.2 launches, and no one can get it until the person buys the game and pays to subscribes for 1 month. In most cases that means 2 months before anyone will see the Galaxy X.
Beyond that I've already invited 5 friends to this game, all of whom are still subscribe - and 3 even purchased LTSs. Not everyone dislikes the game just because you do.
