Enh... traditionally, Gold perks do not expire when your subscrition does. So you could subscribe for one month and make an Alien then not continue the subscription.

Not sarcasm... The Tellarites, Regelian and ferengi used to be Cryptic Store Items before... Now they are freely obtainable it seems.

If champs is a indication, Freeform (alien gen), will be locked out if you do not run your sub as active gold... They won't be deleted, but you can't access them either.

the argument is valid .You got what you paid for .When LTS cryptic said " you will get liberated bord for kdf and fed side" nothing about romulans.You can use that so cryptic give you for what you paid.

Is like going to buy a car in 2013 and if the same model in 2015 has better stuffs you go and demand the newer model thou you already used your offer.

Even if they add the romulan liberated borgs now they have no reason to give them to those who already bought LTS (they will do that simply because they dont loose anything if they do that )

Yeah, but the champs analogy is probably flawed since we know that things such as account bank and extra chars still work in the current STO setup.

I agree fully... But then again: Alien (freeform) is unlocked for both Fed and KDF right now...

All I am saying is that Cryptic might be... silently adjusting their model.

I am curious though.... IS It the same kind of char as the Feds and KDF get? I am curious why Stahl referred to it as a "Hybrid".

Yea... I've been wondering a little about that myself... By definition, a hybrid is a crossbree, so you'd assume that there is a alien that forces some traits on you...

That again however dosent fit what I've seen on tribble, where you can loose all default traits and fully costumize them to your wishes.

It's really odd.

yeah, I have seen the 'suliban'. Hybrid would seem to indicate soemthing along the liens of Saavik or Sela, but the screenshots indicate it may just be a revamp of the already existing 'alien' option for Feds and KDF. In either case, I do think it is a bit inexcusable, because for one, the alien option is currently free for Feds and KDF, and for another, we are already almost certainly going to have liberated borg for Romulans, so making a second inaccessable to FTP is a bad move, IMO.

It might be that "Hybrid" means that RR Aliens will always look part Romulan? I dunno, still speculating.
