Except RAF rewards have no relationship to selling special in game abilities, one is a reward for getting 5 additional subscribers, one is going to the C-Store and buying an i-win button.

How do you know that the other T5 variants he mentioned as being developed for the game won't have any kind of special abilities unique to them too?

No, it's a reward for causing 5 boxes to be purchased and have those copies subscribe for at least one month each.

You're speculating.

Because if they did that, then where would be the incentive to play already existing T5 ships?

It's a vicious cycle.

i haven't seen anything on any of the offical pages concerning either a holo tribble or the requirements to purchase the game, can you link it please?

Personal preference? I for one would stick with my Sovereign. I really don't need a T5 Galaxy class than can separate if it gets added.

You know what... heres a great way to have a real laugh with this promotion.

Get 5 people to subscribe = Get Galaxy-X

Player only has the Galaxy-X as long as those 5 REMAIN active.

If they leave / become in-active - Galaxy-X Removed from player


Yeah... those folks that go and cheat to buy it for themselves will have to maintain 5 seperate accounts to keep the Galaxy-X in their inventory thus providing Cryptic a SUSTAINED income for development.

6x$20 a month, every month = $120

DO IT CRYPTIC !!!!

It's the reward for recruiting a player (they don't have to sub for a second month, it's automatic once they are in).

They need to subscribe to the game for a month. That doesn't mean the Free month which comes with the game.

You get a Holo-Tribble if they buy it. You get a Holo-BO if they subscribe after buying it.
