Mine have, yes.

You are far too optimistic about this.

That may very well be the case, though it doesn't excuse what I've said above.

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, they have our money, what do they care now?
This might surprise you to know, that on the Captain's Table, that's where the screen shot was taken...since there are Cardassians on the Captain's Table.

See my post above yours. My concern here is that people might wrongly suspect that because a Cardassian is featured, they'll think they'll get to play one when they wont. The picture gives off an incorrect visual message.

Yep, account wide. Every character you have can get one. If you discharge it, you can reclaim it later on.

I see you are now learning the basics of advertising.

Not sure I like the Connie-like ship in the Launcher. It sends the wrong message. Makes me think we will be getting a T5 connie in the expansion.

If the KDF can get a Fleet D7 (That can be upgraded to a T5-U), the Feds should have a Fleet Exeter.

Why? there are Cardassians already in the game? If the picture was going to give off the "incorrect message" that Playable Cardassians are incoming, then why not the Cardassians already in the game? Your comment means nothing, and you are basically claiming that the new players are not smart enough to figure the situation out for themselves.

yes.. all toons in all factions will have access to their specific vet ship.. not to the other faction's ships... including the fleet versions (if you have ship modules that is )


Hope this helps

Wonder how many people misread the article from the Arc news section. Arc news announcement reads as follows:

We are pleased to announce a sale on Lifetime Subscriptions from now until Thursday, July 10, 2014 at 10AM PDT, bringing the price down by $100 USD! Now is the perfect time to pick up a Lifetime Subscription to STO so you can play forever as a Gold Member and never pay a monthly subscription fee again!

In the link that LaughingTrendy gave, that same paragraph reads as follows:

We are pleased to announce a sale on Lifetime Subscriptions from now until Thursday, July 10, 2014 at 10AM PDT, bringing the price down from $299.99 USD to $199.99 USD! Now is the perfect time to pick up a Lifetime Subscription to STO so you can play forever as a Gold Member and never pay a monthly subscription fee again!

I know when I originally skimmed through the Arc announcement I misread it, and had to go back because $100 for a lifetime sub just sounded to good to be true, which it was.
