The Excelsior was a half-step and now we need to put both feet in. I'm hoping the Nebula can be in game as well as in store. The in game way to get it might not be cake - but at least it will be something.
It is nice to know too be sure.

It's probably been mentioned before, but Holidays, especially US Federal ones, are usually times for C-Store sales. So, just in case, expect more sales possibly on Thanksgiving, which may be possible if Season 3 is out at that time, plus it's Black Friday, everyone has sales, and especially Christmas -> New Year. Probably in February too for the 1 year anniversary (at which point there will only be costume parts and activities setup for Federation players, damn you Cryptic). Memorial Day and Independence Day were the previous sale dates, IIRC, in the 2nd Quarter. I'm not sure about Halloween though, wouldn't expect it, but also wouldn't buy anything big from the C-Store in the few weeks preceding it either.

I wanted extra character slots, so I merely just waited for a sale, they seem to happen once every 2-3 months or so. Likely to meet or exceed quarterly income quotas.

Well then you're fortunate. Here when you've bought it, you've bought it.. It is very rare to find a shop that actually accepts returns.

So... now you're committing to upholding those promises you didn't feel beholden to? I'll believe this when it happens.

Sounds more like a protection racket than a game.
Especially since you'd just be paying more so you can use it sooner in the buggy and annoying content you supposedly wanted to avoid...
