I doubt you ever will get ZEN as a stipend. If they gave you ZEN, you could transfer it to any PW game. CP will still be "bound" to STO.

So the stipend will stay as C-points?

They won't. The stipend will still be Cryptic points that are tied to STO only. Zen could be used in any PWE game.

The F2P matrix still lists the promotional points as C-points, and since it seems unlikely they would have moved all the webpage files and info to PWE servers and leave such a mistake seems unlikely.
My name may say "PWE member", but I will never be.

Understand that I'm not an official source of information.

But I'm pretty sure that the stipend isn't going to change the way it works any time soon.

From the Free-to-Play matrix (gold column):

Quote:
Monthly Stipend [?] - 400 Promotional Points
If you mouse over the "[?]," you get the following:

Quote:
Promotional Points differ from Cryptic Points in that they can only be used in Star Trek Online. Cryptic Points, however, may be used across all Cryptic Studios' games.

Thus, it is not just that they are not going to be in Zen because they only are usable in Cryptic games; technically, they are not even CP. They are promotional points and are only valid in STO, so, theoretically, they are not even usable in Champions Online, even though that is another Cryptic game and it uses CP. As such, until they change that policy, there won't be giving you Zen instead of "promotional points" usable in STO.

But, in answer to your question, since 100 Zen = 80 CP, the conversion formulas are:

Zen * .80 = CP

and

CP * 1.25 = Zen

Thus, if they were to give you the stipend in Zen, it would be 400 * 1.25 = 500 Zen.
