The Features Matrix does not state that you need to subscribe multiple months to receive the 400 CP. It states that if you are a Gold member, you receive 400 CP. Even if you are only a Gold member for one month, you are still a Gold member for that month - and - thus, should receive the 400 CP stipend that the site states you receive. There is no notation on the matrix which states that you do not receive it for the first month. Nothing in the FAQ states that you do not receive the 400 CP stipend the first month.

http://forums.startrekonline.com/sho...67&postcount=8 is a purp post in regard to this. You get them 30 days after - it is not a case that you lose them for the first 30.

So once again, for that $15 - 400 CP stipend, 2400 CP worth of respecs on each Fed and 1600 CP worth for each KDF. 4400 CP. 5500 Zen...that's over a $50 value for $15 if you only run two characters (one Fed/one KDF). You get a universal slot, meaning you could rack up another 1600-2400 CP value out of that. It also does not take into account those features that remain when going from Gold to Silver.

So yes, that is something that I wish I had been aware of back when I first started.

If not for the Odyssey, Bortas, the time and money that I've spent on this account already; I would delete my toons and sub for a month. As is, I'll be looking at farming CP for 16 days with the four toons to get each a respec or dropping out $20 to do so. I've thought about deleting two of the toons, building them from the start with what I know now...and then face only needing to farm for 8 days for the two or spending $10.

I wish people would have told me that end game wouldn't be expanded, but reworked a dozen times

I just wish someone had told me I'd be playing the game as long as I have. I'd've gone for the lifetime right when I signed up if that were the case.

Wish I'd known which toon would be my favorite. Would've switched careers.

Must admit, I'm tickled pink that I got my Lifetime before launch. It not only paid for itself, but turns a profit for me every month now.

Though there are some disgruntled lifers, those that got in at the start...appear to have gotten more out of it than those that do it now are likely to get out of it, eh?

Now I realize that scan will point you to the nearest anomaly or mission objective in almost every case.
I though the game was stupid as it didn't have waypoint markers. I kept wandering around and around the map looking for the next objective. Then I found out about the scan function.

What I would prefer is that when scanning it brings markers up on your map.

Buy that copy of STO you saw at Target for 10 bucks.

That backspace is the reply key to whispers and how boring endgame raiding is.

Heh, backspace would have been nice. I remember finding that out accidentally and going, "Ohhhh..."
