So that would mean all countries are charged the same. But while most EU countries have a VAT that is between 20 and 25% my country only charges 8%.

These are the ships that will be available in the C-Store, so you can also earn them via the Dilithium Exchange

Also sounds like there is a Dev Blog pertaining to ships going up tomorrow.

Okay, I just did the math myself, and it seems to add up, accounting for the ships, playable species, Nemesis costume, and keys. Titles, the doff pack, and liberated Reman are probably thrown in there as a bonus, otherwise it would be an extra ~$10.

It's nice to know there are some politicians in the world that aren't completely money hungry.

Could you have them send a few tips to our Washington Scrooge McDucks in the USA?

Oh wait, Cryptic doesn't like to release those kinds of numbers...
Assuming the ships follow the same pricing structure as the Fed or KDF you get:

Fighter: $5.00
T1: $5.00
T2: $7.50
T3: $10.00
T4: $15.00
4@T5: $80.00
That's $122.50 in ships.

Playable Reman: $6.00
Account-wide Liberated Reman Boff: $10.00
Doff Pack: $2.00
Uniform: $5.50
30 Keys: $33.75

That all adds up to $179.75, and I might be off $1.25 somewhere to get to $181.00
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.

I'm wondering if the T'Liss (TOS) BoP skin will be able to be used on the T'Varo T5 retro. Please say yes This honestly might be a dealbreaker for me if it isn't.

As I don't use Keys, ever, I'm guessing the Starter Pack will work best for me. I'll just buy the other ships and items as I need them.

Well the T'Varo comes with a Slow moving Plasma torpedo...I hope it's Red.

Yeah, sadly that doesn't matter. It's a flat rate for non EU companies to provide services to EU residents. My country doesn't even use the Euro, but because we're a part of the EU we have to pay in Euros and at the higher tax rate. It's not PWEs fault, it's EU legislation.
