its quite simple.
vanity purchases & inventory expansions will get them more cash than character slots.

This is exactly it.

It's more profitable in the long run to give me the slot. It's the carrot on the stick that leads you to other things.

I only bought Joined Trill initially because I wanted to do a Trill that has left for the Klingon Empire character, for example.

There's no good reason beyond internet conspiracy theories to think they are going to change their business model now. It's working the way it is.

MMMM.New C-store ships, Dial store devices,and fleet grind....I am 99.9999% sure that they will give out a free slot. Like crack dealers give out that first rock free.It would be in their financial iinterest to do so. Dil store, damn droid auto spell check!

Personally Think It should come out as has been discussed as a past, A Paid Expansion like other games have done. This was it brings in Valuable Resources instead of just winds up being a Resource hole like the KDF is. Let the people who want it, Get it. This way they know how much Resources to actually dump into it in the long run. Since the faction itself can Enter Rommie, KDF or Starfleet the best way is make it a Z-Store Expansion to pick up. That opens the Expansion to people who truly want it and not just a third Floating half faction to casually go into.

Just incase they don't give a free slot save up your delithium and buy your Z-points with it.
= 0 cash for them.... think about that cost you nothing but game play.
And if they give it any ways wel you got alot of delithium to spent.

Either way, I'm ready. I bought the 2 slots from C Store a while back. To make my 3rd character for my Tactical Officer. I hadn't used the other slot that came with the purchase.

The slots have been on standby in my case since january

Slots saved for
Romulan Tactical, Romulan Engineer and Romulan Science
Remans and other aliens no thanks

IF they give me a spare slot I might make a Reman and name his ship "the Ugly stick"

There is no doubt you will get a free Rom Slot. Silver players will start the game with 1 Fed exclusive, 1 KDF exclusive, and 1 Rom exclusive slot. As stated above, Cryptic's revenues will come from all the Rom items you will want to buy after you get started: Rom ships with unique consoles, Rom uniforms and regular clothing, Rom pets, and so on.

The free slot is like the crack dealer giving you the first few tries for free: he knows you'll be back to buy more.
STO is about my Liberated Borg Federation Captain with his Breen 1st Officer, Jem'Hadar Tactical Officer, Liberated Borg Engineering Officer, Android Ops Officer, Photonic Science Officer, Gorn Science Officer, and Reman Medical Officer jumping into their Jem'Hadar Carrier and flying off to do missions for the new Romulan Empire. But for some players allowing a T5 Connie to be used breaks the canon in the game.

Every Z-point you trade for is still income for Cryptic. You didn't pay cash for it, but the person who got it to sell for dil did.
