Offense to pre-order customers? Hardly, you paid no more than anyone else who bought the retail version, you got access to the Open Beta, headstart and a "free" in game trinket or two.
probably because the people that hate cryptic will see anything as a sign that they are greedy, evil and the game is dying.

others see that they are a business, trying to make money in a bad economy and their success is Sto success

6 new levels. That's a big step forward for a game that's dying?

I didn't, you did 6 new levels for your character to progress through. 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, and 51. If he was referring to the episodes or missions he would've used those terms. You can 'level' your character anywhere you can gain experience which might be the new episodes / missions but could just as easily be old stuff like Gamma Orionis DSEs or B'Tran etc.

The dreamy Excelsior <3 I hope that despite all that everyone says that it becomes available as a highest tier ship. I've seen people saying that it's tiny with stats listed at just over half the length of the Galaxy class but other places I find online say it's only about 100m shorter. Sure it isn't as tall but it's sleek and streamlined and very capable in a fight.

There is quite a bit of discussion over the size of the Excelsior, because there are some pretty big differences between the various Excelsior Refits.

A big look into the various size theories is on that link. From 162m all the way up to 467m in variation.

I think it's one of the most awesome ships in Star Trek either way

That and the ambassador class

Gah! Read what I said! You are pointing to levels / episodes / missions, I am talking about character progression from the current level cap of 45, up to level 51. You are only right in the way that you're talking about which is not what I was pointing out lol

I didn't include those in the tally.

What are we arguing about?

LOUD NOISES!!!!!!

For reference, there are six new levels in Season 2:
1. 46
2. 47
3. 48
4. 49
5. 50
6. 51
