Let me give you an example of how badly Gene wanted to get paid. Did you know that the opening theme music from TOS actually has lyrics that were written by Roddenberry? Know why he wrote lyrics? So he could claim half of the music composers royalty. He (luckily) backed off from using the lyrics, but it goes to show that what some people think of as Saint Gene was actually just a Hollywood producer who had a good idea and was more than happy to get what he could get out of it financially.

Nothing wrong with wanting to get paid either, but Cryptic is taking the dilithium surcharge thing just a bit far.

When Fasa broke cannon Gene R pulled there lisence
And shut them down concerning star trek products

At that time they were the largest gaming company
And star trek was there biggest product

They had 5 manuals within 3 months of publishing when
The TNG Officers manual came out with it's UnCannon
Material
Gene R lost a lot of money preserving ST cannon

To make him out as a profiteer is false
He made a good product and was well paid
Jellico....Engineer.....Stargazer KDF Tac
Saphire.. Science.....Ko'el Rom Kdf Tac
Leva........Tactical.....Mailu KDF Sci

JJ-Verse will never be Canon or considered Lore...It will always be JJ-Verse

Your finally getting the picture. 50 pages and 16,000 views - how many Dev posts? 0 - zero - zip - nadda

As I said the green to blue and blue to purple price hikes are set in stone. The only hope maybe the common to green which I will bring up in the Next ask Cryptic.

MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.

One of the reasons SWTOR bombed is that the developers always listened to fanbois, instead of their critics.
