Only issue I have with it is, it is a little wrinkely, need to smooth it out...other than that its what I expected, top and bottom, I just added 7of 9 low cut shoes, it looks fine, put it on my BO sci officer. Dont think I would ever use that skant and didnt think about it untill I read this post.

Now we just need Risa Beach Wear for females and MALES...tired of running around in a uniform or boots and biker jacket on the beach.

Sorry, but I don't get why you feel cheated. The C-Store is always strictly WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get). If there's no screenshot of a dress it doesn't exist.

I bought every ground costume so far and I'm not getting this. The wrinkles don't bug me but the relative value seems low for the price.

I might pick it up in a massive C-Store sale or if it were included in some kind of massive TNG "extras" pack with S1 uniform, Crusher-style coat, an Admiral uniform or two and S5 Picard jacket.

Maybe it would help if there were a crew member I could think of as a counselor, for starters. ;-)

# 17 One outfit is not a pack
12-14-2010, 02:14 PM
A single outfit does not constitute a pack. A pack means there are multiple different items. Unless they add more outfits to it, it isn't a pack. The argument could certainly and justifably be made that the name was misleading upon release and those who paid for the "pack" are entitled to a "pack" as was advertised in the launcher, on the website, etc. Otherwise it was false and misleading advertising. Even now the StarTrekOnline.com website is promoting this single item as a pack. And I quote: " The Federation Costume Pack: Counselor Troi is available in the C-Store."

Cryptic/Atari have to provide what they have been advertising (a "pack") or issue a refund to those who purchased it due to misleading advertising

For those who disagree... here are some links to the definition of a "pack"

http://www.thefreedictionary.com/pack quote "A collection of items tied up or wrapped; a bundle." "A large amount; a heap" "To fill up with items" " a bundle or load"

http://www.definitions.net/definition/pack and I quote, "large indefinite number."

http://www.vocabulary.com/definition/pack and I quote "several things grouped together."

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/pack - more of the same...

So clearly a single uniform does *not* constitute a pack - which what was advertised (and still is advertised) on the STO website.

Kind of hard to read the dark blue on black background... :p

Perhaps by pack, they mean "top, trousers and boots". :p

They don't sell outfits by the shirt or the pants or whatever. A pack means multiple shirts and bottoms (pants, skirts, dresses, etc.). Do you call your outfit you're wearing now a pack (assuming you are dressed) or do you call it an outfit (singular)? If you had a few shirts and pants and could mix and match, etc. then it's a pack of clothing. lol They said pack and we didn't get a pack, we got a single outfit. They need to go back and redo this and make it right. They advertised a pack, no one who purchased received a pack, they received a single outfit. They need to fix it if they want to preserve their credibility, else I suspect a lot of people will remain upset with them. If they alienate enough players, it will begin to impact their profits. I do not want to see that happen, I just want to see them right this wrong, which is their resposibility. They got themself into it by advertising a pack on the site and delivering a non-pack, but instead, a single outfit. As it stands right now, the "pack" advertisment on the website is untrue (and thus, a lie). They really ought to fix it and prove that they care more about doing the right thing. At this time the offering for this in the C-Store is a big sham.

When I was issued my first uniform, it was handed to me in separate pieces by the quartermaster, trousers, shirt, socks, boots, pants, etc; sometimes placed in a box for ease of carrying. By definition, I then had a uniform pack. (When we were finished being rushed from queue to queue, we were eventually taken back to the QM who then issued each of us a boatload of uniforms. By definition, I believe, that was considered a "pantload" / "crapload" / "metric @#$%ton" :p )

( Since it wasn't obvious to you from my previous post, I was joking, I didn't seriously consider the top, trousers and boots a pack. )
