I might be wrong, but wasn't the Veteran Program supposed to get new perks a few month back ?

I don't know what anyone else thinks, but this has potential scam written all across it. Lets take a look at the announcement. What's one of the first things everyone notices? Well I'll tell you; it's the Cardassian.

Now whilst it is true that there is no mention of playable Cardassians anywhere on that page, it wouldn't half surprise me if some people jumped the gun and purchased the lifetime pack simply because they saw the Cardassian, and wrongly assumed that by making the purchase, they'd get to play as one.

That's bad on you Cryptic. What possible purpose is there to display a Cardassian (in Cardassian armour) when a perfectly good Human or Andorian would better fit that position?

Heh, I didn't notice the Cardie at all...but yeah, the rest of what you said - having noticed him after you pointed out - does point to bad form on Cryptic's part.

Well were past 1500 days for vet time counting....

I dunno about anyone else but if I were in charge I would have thrown down a new reward to boost the sales of this lifetime sale

I got mine in what I think was the first subscription sale before free-to-play, and I don't regret it one bit.

If you're asking yourself whether it's worth it... Remember STO will be celebrating its fifth anniversary next year.

I recall that, too, and then they removed the EVA Suits from the C-Store and gave them to Vets. Was that it? I can't remember getting anything else recently.

STO: Expansion 2 is due by the end of the year, and it's supposed to be bigger than the Legacy of Romulas (E1). Perhaps this is a hint that E2 will bring Cardassians as a Playable Faction?

Hmm...

You've heard it here first!

They are advertising the Captain's Table which is a part of the Veteran rewards, and that Cardassian has always been there. You are thinking too much.

Can someone explain to me how the vet ships work please? Are they account wide unlocks? Say I have a Rom, A Fed and a Klink, would each one get a vet ship?
