My only concern right now is 'my account' page doesn't reflect the LTS and ingame, there is no access to Captain's Table or an option for the Liberated Borg character. I am assuming that it will either become available in a day or so; or when my current 6 month sub runs out.
Captain's table is off limits until you claim the code from the c-store. I think it is an account unlock.

I heard that the liberated borg character creator is bugged for some accounts, but I thought they had fixed it.

I remember my lifetime benefits being pretty much instantaneous, so you might want to open a ticket tomorrow if you are not credited.

I had a friend tell me that support told him that Level 50 characters would not get the expanded bank and inventory slots that comes with becoming a gold member. If anyone can confirm or deny this (especially a Dev), please do so.

As a lifer I recommend against LTS. (F2P made it almost worthless) You'll never get your money's worth, and STO is going down in quality with every season. Stay F2P, c-store whatever perks you need, and enjoy the games death. Mabey the next ST MMO will get it right.

As a lifer I agree with you completely.

At this point itís just not worth it. It would take you just over 13 months to break even, and the only thing you would have earned would be the following:

5,200 Cryptic points over that 13 month period
1 Liberated Borg Playable Character (unlocked for your Account)
1 Respec Token Valued at 400 CP
1 Veteran Badge (unlocked)
1 Ship Slot Valued at 200 CP
1 Veteran uniform (unlocked)
1 Character slot Valued at 250 CP
1 Fireworks emote

Which would bring it to 6,050 Cryptic Points

OR

You could stay at Silver and spend $12.50 a month and get 1,000 Cryptic points
Over the same 13 month period, would give you:

13,000 Cryptic points

Please do not fall for this crap. It is offensive that they even offer this, it is only an attempt to take advantage of people not able to do math. I bought the lifetime sub before the game was released and felt ripped almost immediately. They haven't added any new content, only new ways for you to give them more money. Now they are offering you WAY less (when I bought it, I was saving the monthly fee - or so I thought). If you REALLY insist on supporting their cstore, then buy the points - NOT the subscription.

As has already been posted, 400 cpoints a month is no where near worth it.

Please do not support their greedy ways, you will regret it. And you will feel dumb.

Actually, If you started Lifetime from day one.. Your maths are slightly off.. Just Slightly. This math will be done based on Grinding all the Characters to 50 in the one month btw. So 3 characters.Also These Are Services that are Purchaseable by Silver. Obviously If your not a lifetime you dont get certain titles, badges, or the Borg. But this is by my maths and remembering the last time I calculated this out.

1 Respec Token Valued at 400 CP (given at 10,20,30,40,45,50) = 3chars x 400cp x 6 = 7,200
4 Bank expansions Valued at 240CP : 3 chars x 240cp x4 = 2,880
3 Inventory Expansions Valued at 320cp: 3 chars x 320 x 3 = 2,880
Char slot = 250cp
Energy Credit Increase to 1 bil: = 400cp
Ship Slot Increase Valued at 200CP: 3 chars x 200 = 600
I know there is a BOFF increase, I can't remember how many boffs. So I figure one Expansion is 2? boffs Valued at 200cp: so 3 chars x 200 = 600
400 CP stipend per month = 400 cp
New Perk given (for now) account bank (no price yet)
+ whatever Vet rewards and char unlocks you get.
+ These Expansion and perks keep happening while lifetime no matter how many characters you delete and remake. So some of them Rebuy themselves continuously depending on if you open more char slots, or delete and char and make new ones.
__________________________________________________ _______________
Total: 15,210 CP
3 x 5000 CP cards (62.50 each)
1 x 500 CP cards ( 6.25)
Total USD: 193.75

So 193.75 For the Initial use of the lifetime Gifts. That value goes up with every character you add, or Delete and remake. So if you tend to make new Characters based on new content coming out, Or you just wanted to have fun and say Delete A character and Make Duke Nukem You dont have to re-unlock inventory or banks etc. Also I hear the EC Cap Increase (1billion) dissapears after you drop back under 10 mil, also you can't go higher then what your at when you reverted. which kinda sucks. But again, I havent tested that, That is what was said on another Thread.

Point of Arguement: You can get the same benefits just dropping 15.99 for the first month of being Gold. Cancel Gold after the first Month, and keep a Majority of the perks. But if you decide to add characters down the line, or delete a character and make a new one due to some new race. You will have to either go gold again, or unlock the items for that character.

+ I dont see the fireworks Emote at all on me and I went Lifetime a month before the sale

The Unlockable Captains Table is a F'kn Joke. Needs way more content shoved into that little area or services or something. To make it even Worth Advertising or even a use. Currently its just a area with an Exchange/mail/bank etc in it. Why should I bother going there when I am already at ESD.

I agree with you.

The captains lounge is hardly a bonus, it's always dead when I go there, so it's a rather pointless addon.
