of course the people that are getting it are the minority and all the others instead of working for what they want come here and whine if they put half that effort into recruiting they would have the 5 by now

Galaxy X and all the other stuff should be in the game from launch or added as we go for free. STO needs a ton load more content , ive just given up ingame , the place was so deserted and NOTHING to do , nows the time i hang my boots up and give it a rest for a few months i cant keep hanging on and supporting this shallow game , ill be back in a few months.

If people have put the time into the game or put the money together to buy it, then they deserve it.

With all the things avail in game to people as it is, we still do not see everyone flying the same ships or using the same gear.
So saying that everyone will have it and that the game will be flooded with them is not nec accurate.
Some may not even put forth the effort to get it in the game no matter how accessible it is.

It is the principle of the matter, people should not have to make it a second job on top of everything else to achieve some of these things.
There should be other ways to get iconic items besides having to go out and spam people into buying the game.

I have no real issue with RAF programs, but I do have an opinion on what is being dangled in front of people as a reward and what all is involved in getting it.
It seems a bit on the steep side.

If it was for one or two people that might not be so bad and lower some of the other reqs, but 5?
It may not be a lot of work for some, but for others, that could turn into a 2nd job in and of itself.

They could use some other item less controversial.
Sell it in game for a decent sum.
Allow people to earn it in game.
Make it a vet reward.
Maybe even leave it as an RAF item, but make it also obtainable through a string of achievements in game.

If your curious about the captains table and how I feel about that being exclusive, I think it should be avail to everyone also.
Star Trek should be about the players and the fans, not who has the most friends or who has the biggest wallet.

I want to see this game do well, I want to see tons of people playing it.
It is awsome to see people enjoying Trek, so I have no problem with them coming up with things to get people involved, just wished they would pick less controversial ways to do it lol.
making an award for missions or whatever else is not working for it it is playing the game for it. How does that put any money in cryptics pocket which is the whole point of the RAF The rest of us went out and got our 5 subs as required either you're willing to do what it takes or your not everything else is just whining i can't have it

I see... so under your concept earning things ingame must be done OUT of game and earn Cryptic money...

pay to play new races,
pay to buy ship skins
pay to get new ship classes


Mmm... pay to level,
pay to get new missions
pay just to login, eh ?

Oh wait we already do that via subscriptions. Oh right, apparantly paying a subscription dosent earn Cryptic money or considered good enough.

So... shall we just drop the pretense of this being a game thats meant to be balance for ALL players with equal accesscontent with and go with the he-who-pays-gets-the-best-content ?

Whats next, pay $1000 and get the Relativity ?

No all I'm saying how is it fair that someone went out and got 5 subs gets the same reward as someone who played the game

How is it fair that people have to do OUT of game things to gain INGAME advantages ?

No matter how hard you play this game all that C-Store stuff, Pre-Order stuff will never be yours - however, they all have a short lifetime in early game.

Oh, but here we have the Galaxy-X complete with custom cannon, and a cloak. Neither function can be gotten ANY other way via this game thus presenting a clear advantage to those who do OUT of game recruiting and earn Cryptic money.

Apparantly... Cryptic dont consider people paying their subscriptions reason to give EVERYONE access to content they add. Additionally, you support the concept that ingame progress should be achieved via PAYING for it out of game.

I know this is an old comment, but... it reminded me so much of a couple of lines from one of my favorite non-Star Trek movies... Contact:

David Drumlin: I know you must think this is all very unfair. Maybe that's an understatement. What you don't know is I agree. I wish the world was a place where fair was the bottom line, where the kind of idealism you showed at the hearing was rewarded, not taken advantage of. Unfortunately, we don't live in that world.

Ellie Arroway: Funny, I've always believed that the world is what we make of it.



If people want a better world... do what you can to make it better. If you want the status quo... being slanted and a bit 'unfair' .. then say and do nothing... you already have what you want.

We're asked to provide feedback constantly on things we like, dislike, want to see changed etc but any time something like this comes along and you provide feedback you get shouted down as a "whiner" or not willing to do what's necessary / make the effort. Not everyone is equally able but still, that isn't the point. Providing feedback as requested earns you nothing positive and you get labelled and scorned for it.
