For those concerned that 1,200 points is not sufficient to try out some parts of the game, this is just the first stipend. There will be more coming at different times during the test period, and I'll keep the Klingon warriors on retainer for the next time the stipend is granted.

I think the more pressing concern on most of our minds is the 33% increase on nearly every item in the C-store when we were previously promised either no change or reduced prices. Ships were previously over priced, now they are ridiculously over priced. Previously EC ships (Excelsior at T3) are now C-store ships. This is what we want addressed on top of the Test Points being removed.

You raised the price of a t5 Excelsior to 1600cp...and it looks from the description that it is now for one character, not the whole account, yes?

Are ships going to be per character only now?

I can't really say I'm surprised by all of this. They've been making themselves too greedy and morally bankrupt to think straight lately.

If it is I will be quite upset because I bought the ships under that pretense. I would not have bought the ships then if they were per character prices and I will not buy new ships if they are per character unless they are like a third of the price that they are on holodeck... This is getting scary... I really really hope this is just left over stuff from internal testing or something that didn't get changed back to prices that were inline with holodeck.

To ask the related question before the answer comes: is the Galaxy X a caracter unlock too now?

I don't mind the price hike (It's most likely for the F2P'ers who are coming in) Plus Criptic is giving me $5 in credits a month for free for being a Lifer.

I can save my C-Points for a rainy day. and Cryptic can use the extra cash to meet the upcoming demand from F2P.

On the otherhand, Premium ships going per character sounds bad. (if its true that is). will those who bought them when they were account wide, stay account wide?

Switching ships from per account to per character plus raising the prices on top of that is one heck of a price hike... more like a gouge. I never make a lot of noise on these forums, but for me this takes the cake.

Plus where are the pre release items? I have a bunch of crap that I am supposed to be able to claim right off the bat. Where's my liberated borg BO?

exactly. the only promise they made was that they 'had no plans currently'
so yeah, there's no promise broken on that area. currently means things can change (which they did)
