The advantage of the LTS comes after it has paid itself off. An LTS is $299.99, a monthly sub is $14.99 so after ~21 months of playing Star Trek Online should you buy LTS today the advantage will be that you are playing for free and retain gold status.
So if you think you're gonna hang around for that long and believe STO will be here for another couple of years then go for it if you can afford it, otherwise don't bother.
Man is a gaming animal. He must always be trying to get the better in something or other.
LTS takes at least 3 years to recoup the cost. If you are already a gold sub, it may take longer if you consider that vet rewards stop at 1000 days.
If you like the Borg captain, or you desperately want Neverwinter beta access, so much that you are willing to grossly overpay for it, then it's worth it. Otherwise, stick to the gold membership. At least with that you can cancel at any time.
EDIT: One more note. If you are seriously going to buy it, wait until a sale. They usually drop the price by ~$100.
