If the C-Store did not exist, then odds are you would most likely NEVER see any of this stuff in STO at all.

None of these items are "needed" in game, they are pure fluff. The money generated from the C-Store is used to fund new content. If you can't understand this then don't buy anything from the C-Store, no one is forcing you.

not my problem and stop defending them, it might not bother you, and that is fine, but for us that feel spending the full price on a game, $50, and THEN a monthly subscription, ERRRRR WRONG

this is NOT cool, and not our problem, and the other guy is right, you will lose a signiificant amount of players because we'd rather spend that money on a game where we dont have to buy ships with US CURRENCY!

price of subs hasn't increased in a decade but the cost of labor, electricity and such has skyrocketted.
You don't need the stuff in the c store. They are mostly junk. Emote pack? Really?
It is a way to supplement thier income to give us better stuff.

You do realise that all but one T5 ships can be obtained without spending one cent right?

Does that included finishing a game that was half-built when it was released?

B/c I haven't seen too much progress.

If this game makes it to October, then I'm playing for free. It's called an investment. And no, I'm not loaded. I saved my money knowing the purchase was coming.

Actually I am not loaded financially, and do not support the c-store. And I have a lifetime account.
