An LTS has a certain value in terms of months, but it also represents an option to play at any given future time. Like a financial option, that has a certain added value.

People who un-sub tend to not come back, but with the LTS, even if you leave, you can check back on the game.

If you break down the numbers you will have to play 24 months before your purchase equals 12.99 per month. After 2 years is when it starts to pay off. But you will have to concider all the extras you may buy from the c-store and if a expansion pack comes out.


Personally I love Star Trek, so it was easy for me.

I wanted to do it from the instant they announced Lifetime Subs.

I would have gotten one back then, but the promotion ended before my next payday, and I just couldn't swing it.

So I started saving....then sadly I got laid off in April....still managed to find a way to scrimp and save the $300 to drop for a lifer account. I shall never look back. I enjoy this game, and I didn't want a little think like having no income stop me from playing.

Well said Sural. I agree with these sentiments 100%. Amazing game and I plan to stay with it for quite some time.

thank you for the responses

i was heavily leaning towards going lifetime, and i will now go ahead and do that. there were a few things holding me back (namely giant 200 holes in my wallet) but i do love this game and i think ill be here for a very long time so it makes sense in the long run to save myself some money.

thank you for helping me to decide.

I love all things Star Trek so it was easy for me to decide too. But I also like not always having to fish out my credit card. I'm an off and on gamer everywhere and I usually end up subscribing then immediately canceling to avoid next month's charge. LTS charges me once, I can leave and return as I please without any extra steps!

Edit: Plus this game grows, it had a rough launch, but it just keeps growing and getting better IMHO so for me Lifetime is worth it! But that's just my humble opinion.

I'm glad that I got the LTS. There are the perks that come along with it, but I'm planning on playing this game for a long time to come. It would be nice if one of the new perks that they put in for lifers is a C Store discount.
