Better late than never, it's time to start gathering your questions for another Ask Cryptic!

I hope you'll all forgive us for the delay, but we really wanted to get the F2P announcement out there before posting this, as we know that you all have loads of great questions for us!

So please, post your questions below, and we'll make sure you get some great answers!

Thanks,

Can you give us a couple of alien races that you would like to see added to the game as non player factions? Such as Talarians, more ferengi, or Sona. And are these things that we are most likely to see coming to us in a featured episode or a Season 6 "Expanding the Universe" type release?

What are your immediate/short-term plans for the Foundry? Us authors would love more assets, triggers, cut-scene tech and more, but we've seen nothing for a long time.

Also, will you be adding additional mission slots for Gold Members when F2P hits?

Finally, the F2P matrix feels a bit wonky...I feel that the Silver members are getting a lot of game for nothing...and those that pay or who are Lifetime Subscribers like myself are only getting some sort of point stipend.

Thank you!

Are you actually going to deliver new content to the subscriber base, prior to going to F2P? There were a lot of statements about new content post Season 4 and until the end of the year, which has just not happened.

Question 1. If the F2P news hadn't been leaked, when would you have publicly unveiled said plan?

Question 2. Can we get a Romulan Material skin for our ships? Something green and sexy to tide us over until "beyond season 5" gets here?

Can you tell us more about these Borg Ground Invasions.

I saw the veteran rewards have been changed from every 100 days (post 500 days) to 750 and 1000. Is this accurate and does this mean those rewards will be extra nice to compensate for the longer gap?

The Borg space invasions have been really good, but they are a little repetitive. Any plans to mix them up a bit by adding different objectives or changing any part of them, to keep the play fresh? Any chance of having the Borg attack combat instances of space social zones like DS9 or ESD to provide a better backdrop than just space?

Question 1: With the acquisition by PW complete, What are the chances that the small fixes that people have been requesting such as Caitian hair, rescaled ship interiors etc. will be addressed?

Question 2: What is one thing that you are super excited that is coming up soon that you would like to share with us?

Has there been any progress toward selling account-wide Bridge Officer, Ship, Bank and Inventory slot unlocks on the C-Store? Perhaps in addition to the character-only unlocks currently available?

As there is very little to encourage a Silver player to buy additional character slots instead of rolling a new account; this could prove to be a nice little earner.
