Of course that analogy applies to most everything that the excuse is pulled out on. Remember, the small percentage interacts and influences the large percent. This "balance" is going to provide quite a show, due to this issue. I mean, tons of heated positions on both sides. And this "turn of events" has changed the entire format of the discussion/problem/whatever you want to call it.
agreed word of mouth can be the best advertisement for a company or the worst, at t his point I will not be referring anyone to this title. Cryptic needs an ethics and execution adviser, cause something is wrong over there.

All this fuss, and you didn't even want to play a Borg? Sheesh!

I will say thanks for showing us this back door, that was super awesome of you!

I was fine without the "Borg Character" until a guild mate suggested getting a Red Matter Capacitor, and I could still buy them.

All these bonuses where Limited Pre-Order Only

Wrong, these were not by any means Pre-Order Only.

The First 5 are a standard part of the Digital Deluxe Edition, and the Shuttlecraft was a special De-Taco promotion that can no longer be obtained.

Just an FYI, here is a mod post on this subject. Just to show that it DOES indeed work:

This is a response to me, of course. Notice the key words "as well as". This mean, "It works".

Considering the OP of this thread did NOT meet the requirements for the Borg Captain, I would say it works rather well!

Pre-Order Starfleet Shuttlecraft from GameAU, Gamestation Gold (uk).

And the Digital Delux Editions <- more then one type was a limited time offer which is still going.

Hey OP could you contact IndigoFyre

He seems to think that this doesn't work, and he is a mod. So someone has false information, I say the MOD cause you have a Borg Captain now.

Did you use this Billing on any other item(s)? Has anyone used this billing on any other item(s)? I want to make a thread helping people get the shinys that they qualify for, so I need to know which items you can "just call billing" to get.

Not just this thread, one on the General forum about it. Guy got his new Borg too, I put links on that page.

This puts it up to 3 known folks that got the Borg this way, is that enough to say that this IS a way to get the Borg?

Just need to know what other items can be received this way. Assuming one meets the qualifications, which is apparently "50% of advertised qualifications" (based on this thread). A MOD post would really help clear this mess up.

Indigo did respond, in the only thread that doesn't have detailed information on what happened. I think I quoted his response earlier, it was something to the effect "It doesn't work as well as you think it does" (Paraphrased)

I asked him about this thread, and gave links (even updated it with the new guy that got his Borg) still waiting on a reply.

EDIT (To Add)
The new guy, just bought his LT membership. According to his OP:
http://forums.startrekonline.com/sho...d.php?t=159266
(Thread in question, follow it to the end my last post shows the new player and his Borg Captain via the Captain database.)

Hey All!

I apologize, but naturally I am unable to share the particular details surrounding correspondence with one of our customers. However, on a more high level note, I am able to share the following:

1.) The Liberated Borg Captain is for pre-order Lifetime customers
2. ) Our Support Team only grants items to players when they should have received the item, but did not (generally due to some technical issue)
3.) We care very much about our players. We care about individuals, but we also care about being fair to our player base as a whole.
4.) The OP earned the unlock through legitimate means.

In the event that a player tries to scam us, we will generally place their account on a temporary suspension. As always, if the account has a history of previous disciplinary actions, the penalty is increased accordingly.
