With the trends in the industry's recognition of STO and the amazing power of the Star Trek brand, IMO made the cost of LifeTime worthwhile. No regrets here...

And lots of us Lifetimers don't use the Borg characters anyway. I just hope some consideration for your loyal members will be shown in Season 4 perhaps? I love STo none the less, but like I said, i'm still looking, for the 'more to come!'
I gopt an LTS 20 minutes after they were announced (the game was still in beta); but I have to say, I don't understand how any original LTS folks feel 'ignored'. They gave a few perks at the start (Liberated Borg, a couple more chracter slots, and if there was anything else, I honestly don't recall); BUT:

Personally, I didn't buy the LTS with ANY hope of in game perks; and the perks would never have sold it for me anyway; I bought the LTS because I liked the potemtial I saw in beta, liked the direction the Dev team was taking the game - and since EVERY MMO that I've liked in this fashion, going all the way back to EQ; I usually spend 2 - 4 years subbed over the life of the game - EQ was 4 years, WoW was 3 years, CoX was 4 years, etc.; so with the cost of the LTS, if I hung around more than 2 years in STO; any time after that, I'd effectively be saving sub fees.

Do I like the perks? Some of them yes. Do I expect more? Nope, I got what I paid for. Personally, I'm fine with that and couldn't care one way or the other if they ever gave LTS folks another extra perk for the life of the game. All it means was I took a risk and paid 2 years of sub fees up front; and if the game runs longer, I never pay a sub fee again. All Cryptic needs to deliver on is to keep the game goibg and hopefully expanding and improving.

Is there a list somewhere that tells you what stuff you get, I got the shuttle and the title but cannot locate the captains table and am unaware of any other bonuses for spending $250.00.

Per this thread: http://forums.startrekonline.com/sho...lifetime+forum where someone else asks that question, it is apparently broken right now

You also get the ability to play as a liberated Borg. The pre-launch lifers got some character slots, not sure if that still applies.

I think he's refering to the 400 day vet reward which grants you the Captian's Yacht (special shuttle) and access to the Captain's Table.

Never ever played an mmo before and I have really surprised myself how much I am now playing this game
