People ask and they shall receive if the majority votes "yea". I'd say thats what happened with the preorder items. As long as the moajrity of people don't want the items in the C-Store, they shouldn't be there.

You guys just don't get it:

OK:

If a person wants the Galaxy X and didn't have 5 friends willing to buy it,

they must spend $225 that Cryptic gets,

or

NOT spend $225 that Cryptic won't get and do without the ship.

This would inconvenience both parties.

As long as Cryptic got SOME money the program was not abused!

Show me the disclaimer stating that someone can not just buy the ship this way.....

Kind of like you soon will be doing with the C-Store!

The damage I referred to does not have to do with money......

I fyou like the game then get at least one other person to try it and sub for amonth and you can have the holotribble and the holo bridge officer you get the tribble even if they don't stay

The "disclaimer" is the name of the program itself: Refer a Friend. And on the page where you send out referral codes, the place where you type in the email is called "friend's email", not "your alternate email". Furthre proof that Cryptic did not intend for people to refer themselves is their own statement:

If you were not able to convice anyone to join, I am sorry for that. However, if you cheated the system and now regret doing that, it is not Cryptic's fault only yours.

I'm not sure what point your trying to make or if your just stating the obvious. Either way, I dont care about any referral rewards in the first place because those are not my motivation for telling my friends about something I like, whether its this game or anything else.

master recruiter.....

enough said, when you see people with the galaxy-x, and the holo bridge officer, you put on that, and everyone will know that you are legitimate. you worked for what you wanted, you did not go into your mothers purse and got her credit card. you earned your galaxy-x with your blood, sweat, and tears.

I fully support this; those who completed the Referral program and got Crytpic their money should get an exclusive item that no one else can get without doing the referral program.

That would be like the use of the words "Special" and "Exclusive" on Cryptic's part.

They don't mean what they say either.
