I think they are also still Lifers.
I expect the same from cryptic if they change their model

I uncovered my eyes long enough to read your message -- wish I hadn't.

But if going with the flow means I can use my free monthly alotment of Turbine points to buy expansions and never have to pay real money again, then yes, I'm going with the flow.

As for the community -- it's what we make of it. My kinship won't accept rude people. So there's really no downside.

This could be a fiasco or require licensing rights. For instance, I want the Hydrians from Starfleet Command, which in turn was based off Starfleet Battles. However, the Hydrians would require licensing from To owner of the Trademark for Starfleet Battles (and probably CBS).

Personalyl I think there are enough races in ST to kill a horse. Lets have them do the major races as playable first then move to some of the obscure races like Hydrians

Hellfire off the port side!

Turbine seems to have some interesting plans and looking at how DDO has turned around, its worth taking note.
i have now seen 3 german pages who took this posting almost out of context and said that STO is possibly / probably going F2P.
