It says for both gold and silver that Klingon play is unlocked at level 25 -- it was originally 5 and (presumably) reduced to after the Fed tutorial (level 1) with Season 4. Is this actually the plan to increase it -- such a high level to unlock (when Stahl himself says that most players have never even gotten to level 21) would seem to really reduce the ratio of Federation players to Klingon players (which the latter at last count were only 18%).
As two other people have already asked, what is going on with the veteran rewards? The FAQ says after 500 days its 750 and 1000, yet the last Ask Cryptic said it'd be 600, 700, 800, 900, and 1000 -- and a 600 day vet reward was confirmed as recently as a week ago.
Edit: I just saw on the FAQ the explanation for Klingons at level 25.
Lifetime subscribers also become Gold Members automatically and will not be charged a continuing subscription fee. Basically, nothing changes for Lifetime subscribers: They continue to have complete access to the same content, items and episodes the way they always have.
I've seen nothing to suggest that this exclusive feature would be available for others though.
Is This going to affect the time tables for new planned content? For example, could the duty officer system or season five be delayed in exchange for making more small cosmetic objects and ships for people to spend the stipend on?
