I can't agree more; as a LTS member I had hoped I could refine more than 8k per day even if it was maybe 10k.

I have to disagree on this though. I actually enjoy playing at lowbie levels using up all the anomalies crafting gear for them then using that toon to help noobish guildies or players with out worrying about matching their level when they are out of range and the spawn just devastates them.
I mean to really play story line missions over to complete a set or get the limited time bonus item is one thing but I'd much rather as a LTS be able to do the missions that grants me say the Red Matter Reactor since I've paid the "Vet" requirements.

I got my LTS during pre-launch and in that time its paid its for the sub and then some. I find any LTS entitlement annoying, as we already got and continue to get what we paid for. I also find the idea of non LTS thinking that's all we've spent? I've got a stack of game cards in my desk that say otherwise. I've also purchased well over $800 worth of Zen since Jan 1st, 2013. I supported the game in the beginning and continue to support the game.

If I started playing now, I would more than likely put the LTS money straight into Zen. It was a different time back when I got mine. Cryptic was still living off the fumes of how great City of Heroes was. Star Trek Online was new, shiny, and showed a metric ton of promise.

Just to add, continuing to add perks to LTS isn't a bad thing. It encourages sales and improves the overall package for everyone. When I purchased my LTs, half the perks didn't even exist. For it was Liberated Borg captain (Of which I have none at 50). No sub for life and a social hub....

I mainly got it for the no sub for life feature.. now I get 500 free zen every month :p
I'll stop kicking that horse when the bugs fixed. Until then as a paying consumer, I will voice my opinion.

Weird that people actually thing that's the end all of the spending, that we're somehow freeloaders and that we don't deserve more specialized treatment then the players who just sit around and pay nothing.

For one thing, the spending doesn't stop, they came out with new ships long after some of us paid LTS. I've been playing since beta myself so I've been there every step of the way with the design changes and trust me they could do alot better in the rewards department.

1: TW to enigma (which was suggested when they added it 2.5 years ago still not in there)
2: Enigma worth something (like having the vendors we actually need like starbase
3: vendors, respec, officer training with the skills that normally require buying an over priced boff)
4: Doff vendor and mission tool (that we find at the academy
5: The ability to beam to sector (like we can do from the academy and fleet base
6: gold or other special ship hull color (because the one they have can barely be distinguished from the other ship hulls while in sector or STF's)
7: a series of special kits with special armor graphics.

Just a few things that come to mind immediately.

And like I said before 2 other types of ships for vet status would be nice. And enhanced sci ship and an enhanced cruiser as choices for the vet ships would be nice as well, having everything as an escort just adds to some of the problems we've seen in this game regarding balance.
Is hoping that Isis is an adequate replacement for the Sensor Targetting Assault loss we'll experience in Season 9.

Did anyone know that you get automatic refining of dilithium, up to one weeks worth??? I guess if you miss the refine for the day and you log in the next day it will refine your dil for the previous day for you.

but once you get VA's you can get alot more data samples from doff missions then spending your time finding anomalies and besides they are super cheap on the exchange.
