Yep, really. Numerous sites were giving out free keys, and Cryptic even had an application process to get one directly from them for free as well.

Well, that's a real minor perk for a Startrek Online player. It's neat you do it, but seriously, it doesn't affect the gameplay of STO in any way.

Ya, I'm with the numerous others in this thread as NOT seeing this as a perk.
Why?
Cause I'm already Testing Season 6 for STO....
Since NWN is based off of tech from CO and STO, both of which work, then I already know that NWN works...

The problem is the twist behind it. Any non LTS will have access to this. The reason why we complain is its just Branflakes and PWE false promotion of actually giving us something.

Unless you have yet to set your title to the LTS title, I am assuming you have NOT dished out a bulk amount of money to a game to play. Meaning you have no reason to be pissed off. If you drop a few hundred on a game (299 not during a sale) then you Expect the money you paid for, the perks given to you, to affect the game you play. NOT a sad Promotion for there next game to try to sucker there Life time players over to.
I do have an LTS. Too lazy to find settings to change my name on the new board.

Sure they may offer this "perk" to other folks down the line but as a STO LTS you get first shot. Is it much of a perk? No its not, but its still a perk and not much of a reason to see so much out rage on the forum.

Make sure you never buy a car because you'll get perks from your car dealership all the time they don't send to regular folks. Life is tough I know, but sometimes you just gotta roll with it.

Well, if anything, those of us interested in the Foundry can compare NW's Foundry features to STO's - and once the NDA on the NW closed beta is lifted; come back and ask why doesn't/when will STO's Foundry be getting feature 'X'.

(I'm an old pencil and paper D&D player from WAY back - so if anything, it'll be interesting to see what they did to the D&D mileu.)

Yep, this is par the course for Cryptic. Though all the game companies are doing something similar these days, buy this get that, betas, preorder offers.

Same here I used to be big on the muds back in the 80's and 90's but if they can go further with their tech and gameplay as far as world pvp goes and territory control as well as there should not be as much limitations on the foundry EULA with Neverwinter as with the IP of Star Trek.

So should work out pretty good to be able to have access for the LTS.

You should not have to pay to have access to betas (refering to Guild Wars 2).

Thats funny since I just bought my STO lifetime some days ago after 500 Days of loyal montly subbing (Got 500 today actually )

But honestly, I have absolutely no interest in the next so called Middle Age MMO, there have been tons of it already, what makes this MMO so awesome compared 2 the rest of them?

Well this is neat. I'll take it.

But, can the next one actually be something in STO? Like a free borgified ship skin that compliments the look of the Borg set? Or a Vulcan/Orion Love Slave pet I can run around with on ESD/First City that dances when not running?
