I thought they were a default uniform choice, I think I can get them at character creation and at the tailor as well and i never went to the C-store to pick them up

I'm all for moving these into default uniforms, or at least allowing fleets to use them as their uniforms. Right now, fleets are unable to do so, because of their status as "unlockable."

I knew the TOS Uniform was a code giveaway, but I had no idea the WoK uniform was

They're fine as they are.

New person: Hmm... C-Store? whats this....

Browse.. browse.... hmm.. a free item? Neat! *Claim*


If it serves as a little intro to the C-Store for new players, all the better.

If one wants them to be accessed with greater ease, then make them a default uniform choice; that way they can be accessed from within the character creation window for new players.
Maybe it's a way to help "train" new users to use the C-Store.

It's actually a contractual thing. Since it's a promotional item, it needs to be in the C-store.

Thanks,

Ah! That is both rational and logical. Thank you.

Now, perhaps they can be made selectable for Fleet Uniforms.

I was one of the ones who bought the Blu-Ray set and put in the code "legally". It didn't really bother me that it essentially became "free" as I bought the set for the discs and not the uni.

The above is why it's free on the C-Store. If it wasn't for the blunder, it would most likely have cost the same as the other costume "packs".
It wasn't just the season 3 blu-ray. I got my code in a Best of TNG DVD, with four good TNG episodes. My friend got his in a Best of TOS DVD, as well.
