# 1 Uniform Question
01-25-2011, 02:32 PM
Just a question: when was the last time a uniform was released for free? Legitimately curious here.

More importantly, when will the next one be released for free? Not as curious here, certainly trying to imply there may never ever be a free uniform released again.

It seems to me, that even though the C Store is ostensibly for cosmetic items etc., there should at least be a few costumes released for free. I mean, in CoX, even though they release costumes with the booster packs, they still maintain a very steady release of uniforms into the game itself. STO should do the same.

You mean like the vet rewards outfit? :p

Last new outfits were Season 2, with Vet Reward Outfits going whenever you hit 200 days.

When it comes down to it, i'd rather they work on adding missions than adding in costumes for free while the c-store team can work on the little itsy fluff :p

(sure down the road would be nice but no rush on it ^^)

Hmm...I think I can list all the uniforms that are "free" for ya...


TOS - free with the Deluxe edition
Wrath of Khan - free
TNG - free with the Collector's Edition
TNG film - free
DS9 - free with the Collector's Edition
Veteran - free at 200 days
Admiral's Coat - free after reaching Vice Admiral
Diplomat - free after reaching Ambassador


Or if you'd like a different layout...

Free:

TNG Film

Free with Deluxe Edition:
TOS

Free with Collector's Edition:

Mostly correct, Cuatela. The Mirror TOS was free if you had gotten a lifetime sub to Champions on-line before it was released. I know a lot of people that bought lifetimes to Champs just for the Mirror universe outfits.

TOS, Voy, and TNG could hardly be considered free as your paying extra for the copies that contain them. Though on a number of occasions the TOS uniforms had codes released in limited number. Still the rest of that list would be considered free through and through.

They also had the off duty uniforms added in for free.

I'm of the opinion that uniforms that are variations of current, in game sets should be added for free, if you have the set already.

Kirk's wraparound should be added for free to those who have the TOS uniforms.

Picard's open jacket should be added to those who have the TNG uniforms.

Just two examples. Either way, it should not be the case that every uniform released from now until forever is put in the C Store.
