I suspect the non-answer is your answer Let it go.

Or they just haven't seen it. Faith is important.

They did. You just missed it. See:

You'll be able to play both of those games for years to come, and to me, that's where the value of the Lifetime Sub lies. It's not in the Mirror Universe Uniform perk, the Liberated Borg Species, or any other special perk.

Meanwhile, lots of other players were wanting some of those items, and missed out on the opportunity to get them. We feel that allowing those players the opportunity to get them is a good thing.

Thanks,

You asked for the Dev response. That was the response to everyone who wanted compensation for those items.

This was the response to a question about the C-Store:

  • The vast majority are aesthetic items, such as costume pieces, action figures, emblems, etc.
  • A very few are account-level management tools, such as being able to rename a character
  • Micro-transactions should never limit your ability to enjoy the game or reach the level cap
  • Any micro-transaction that has a game effect can also be earned in the game through play


These principles apply also to Star Trek.
They changed that, I hope they change this.

I'm pretty sure they don't consider it a change from that policy. As far as they're concerned, so long as you can get an equivalent or better item in game, they've satisfied that stipulation.

That is not what is says. It says, if it has an in-game effect, it will can be earned in-game. Not, an equivalent or better, IT can be earned in-game. There is a difference.
