Please tell me that you're still going to honor the purchases of the Lifetime sub, as I'm another week away from buying it

I think this will be a great move for STO and hopefully it will be bring more a lot of players. Plus, as a LTS I can't wait to get a stipend of Cryptic Points.

Now we just need FE4.

Indeed, Turbine has an excellent F2P model, please look into this. It wouldn't hurt to just check it out, also I'm sure Lifers will get extra benefits. They did with CO, they won't let STO lifers get sidelined.

You can earn TP with deed completions, if they applied this system to the accolade system it would be a great addon. It would make our accolades a worth while thing to go out and earn.

Looking forward to reading the details on this. I have always liked the idea of F2P, personally.
