I think raising the level requirements before you can play the featured episodes is a serious mistake that should be fixed before the start of free to play. Here's why. It's some of your best work and those are self contained missions. They are absolutely perfect for me, as an experienced player, to introduce a new player to the game. I've actually been using the featured episodes to lobby some of my friends into giving the game a try, confident that once I can get my friend through the tutorial and a couple of basic missions and then into the featured episodes they will be hooked. Now that will not happen as they have to be high level characters to ever get there. A serious problem from the standpoint of getting new players hooked on Star Trek, which was what I thought free to play was all about.
