I've still got 2 out of the 3 "Guest Passes" I earned for buying the Collector's edition to STO and now they are no longer necessary to invite a guest into the game. Will there be any ways I or another player can use the codes on the remaining 2 Guest Passes?
To answer everyone’s questions:
And sooner than soon
During this season
Before next season
And next year
In that order
They don’t call this company Cryptic for nothing
Now to my question
My concern would be when F2P goes live. Will Cryptic be ready to handle the increase in server traffic in the 1st few weeks to avoid lag and disconnects?
How will the featured episodes work in free to play? Will it be open to all members on day one? And how will Cryptic handle the traffic if or when we get new featured episodes? As it stands now we get lag and disconnects just from the current members we have now.
@D207, I think dstahl said they have additional hardware already on the way thanks to PW, so hopefully that wont be an issue.

That announcement was a big let down. I was actually kind of excited about what Cryptic might do, but was left with an even more sour taste in my mouth than before.
Cryptic is lying to us about klingon content, again! Instead of fixing things like they have been promising since launch, they are condensing the faction to make the experience less horrible, while promising to do real work on it at some far flung future time. At this point, anyone with half a brain should see the likelyhood of that ever happening is astronomically low.
They lied to us about 600 day rewards, waiting until the day those rewards should have gone out to let us know about it. Instead of having the decency to come out and say it they made it a foot-note in the announcement.
Far too little difference between gold and silver players. One would be much better off with a silver account spending $15 dollars a month in the blasted C-store!
No method to the madness behind tier x.5, both Gold and Silver players will need to shell out serious money to remain competitive
It's a little thing, but not being able to use the STO stiped towards CO and vice-versa is hands down retarded. Are they trying to limit the number of people who might subscribe to both games?!
Who is responsible for all of these terrible decisions of late? Dsthal? I seriously wish I never bought a LTS more than I ever have before!
If I decide to change to a silver account can I unlock my other toon by buying an additional character slot? Or will I have to keep a gold account to be able to play the extra toon I got? I have 3 now but silver accounts only allow 2 toons. So will I be able to unlock that character by buying a character slot?
Another one I thought of whilst awaiting the sexy Venture and Vor'Kang, Dstahl mentioned that he forsaw C-Store prices dropping, is that going to be future implemented if it comes through? Or are prices going to retroactively drop for previously released products as well as future C-Store releases?
