i was surprised by this mogai valdore thing, the valdore was around before the mogai and it is stated that the opposite is true...

The new Cryptic one looks way more robust and heavily armed.

This Legacy pack seems very Reman-focused... do we get any Romulan-themed items aside from the ships?

Romulan Borg Bridge Officer?
Special Romulan Duty Officer mini-pack?
Slick new Romulan-themed costumes?

My budget analysis:

MMO #1, produced by a company based in Irvine, CA
-$50 to unlock all content
-$15/mo
-No marginal cost for any functional content
-Some vanity items for ~$15/ea
-At least 500% more content than STO
-Better graphics than STO
-Basically no software bugs and very few hardware bugs (occasional issues with some TCP/IP configurations, Macs, and Nvidia video cards)

MMO #2, produced by a company based in Seoul, Korea
-All content is F2P
-Elite status is $15/mo
-No marginal cost for any functional content
-Many vanity items for ~$3-10/ea
-At least 200% more content than STO
-VASTLY better graphics than STO
-Basically no bugs
-VASTLY better boobs than STO

MMO #3, produced by a company based in Bellevue, WA
-All content is F2P
-Elite status is $50, one-time fee
-Many vanity items for many different prices
-At least 100% more content than STO
-VASTLY better graphics than STO
-Almost no bugs
-Boobs are far worse than STO or any of its competitors because the game was written by feminists

STO
-One faction is F2P
-Elite status is $150, Legacy status is $125
-Many functional items for $10-50 ea
-Less content than any near competitor
-Worse content than any near competitor
-Many, many bugs
-Graphical/gameplay quality is most similar to the predecessor of MMO #3, which is B2P for $49, one-time.

I am employed as a bookkeeper and operations manager. I am in a MSA/CPA program in the Cincinnati area.

Please - cost-justify this to me. I'm listening.

The IRW Valdore in Nemesis was a Mogai. The Valdore class in STO was named for that specific ship.

The Valdore (the name of a specific Warbird of a then-unidentified class) from Nemesis is STO's Mogai-class warbird. Presumably, STO's Valdore-class Warbird was named after Donatra's I.R.W. Valdore, much like the Venture-class Exploration Cruiser is named after the Galaxy-class U.S.S. Venture.

Hm.... MA calls it Valdore, MB calls it Mogai.

Still, the new Valdore is a better looking one

You say we can buy the starter pack now, and the legacy pack later. If we do, will the cost of the starter pack be deducted from the cost of the legacy pack?

Also, if the Scimitar becomes playable, will Feds get the Typhoon or Jupiter class?
