I am a gaming afficiando with a job. I also love to read and have many other interests. So, I don't see my choices of recreation as mutually exclusive. I hold active elite subs to all the MMOs listed. I am currently contemplating my next marginal entertainment investment.

MMO #1, produced by a company based in Irvine, CA
-$50 to unlock all content
-$15/mo
-No marginal cost for any functional content
-Some vanity items for ~$15/ea
-At least 500% more content than STO
-Better graphics than STO
-Basically no software bugs and very few hardware bugs (occasional issues with some TCP/IP configurations, Macs, and Nvidia video cards)

MMO #2, produced by a company based in Seoul, Korea

-All content is F2P
-Elite status is $15/mo
-No marginal cost for any functional content
-Many vanity items for ~$3-10/ea
-At least 200% more content than STO
-VASTLY better graphics than STO
-Basically no bugs
-VASTLY better boobs than STO

MMO #3, produced by a company based in Bellevue, WA

-All content is F2P
-Elite status is $50, one-time fee
-Many vanity items for many different prices
-At least 100% more content than STO
-VASTLY better graphics than STO
-Almost no bugs
-Boobs are far worse than STO or any of its competitors because the game was written by feminists

STO
-One faction is F2P
-Elite status is $150, Legacy status is $125
-Many functional items for $10-50 ea
-Less content than any near competitor
-Worse content than any near competitor
-Many, many bugs
-Graphical/gameplay quality is most similar to the predecessor of MMO #3, which is B2P for $49, one-time.

I am employed as a bookkeeper and operations manager. I am in a MSA/CPA program in the Cincinnati area.

Please - cost-justify this to me. I'm listening.

The Legacy Pack is a C-Store Pack. It's not required to play Roms - Roms get free T1 through T5 ships just as KDF and Feds do. The pack is just offering a discount on all the C-Store ships by getting the bundle rather then buying them individually - assuming you wanted to buy them.
STO is about my Liberated Borg Federation Captain with his Breen 1st Officer, Jem'Hadar Tactical Officer, Liberated Borg Engineering Officer, Android Ops Officer, Photonic Science Officer, Gorn Science Officer, and Reman Medical Officer jumping into their Jem'Hadar Carrier and flying off to do missions for the new Romulan Empire. But for some players allowing a T5 Connie to be used breaks the canon in the game.

The ONLY items exclusive to the packs are the Titles, Survivor of Romulus, Rihannsu, and Survivor of Remus. Those and [COLOR="rgb(46, 139, 87)"]ONLY[/color] those are available only in the packs. Everything else, including your playable Remans will be in the C-store at launch and can be purchased there with Zen.

why is the 2150's romulan warbird of prey is more popular then the tos romulan bird of prey?
The Tier 5 D'Deridex is in the Legacy pack. The TOS bird of Prey is listed in a previous blog as the T'liss class, and is Free at Tier 1.

As to why The 2150 beats TOS. I am guessing the more streamlined design. but that could just be me. To be honest, I am not a fan of most of the TOS series ship designs. they were awesome in the 60's but they seem dated to me.

That's if you end up buying everything. I probably won't buy 125 worth of the stuff individually of what I want. So 125 is out of the question.

Your response has nothing to do with my post.

This is an MMO. Any content that exists for any player affects the balance of all players.

An LTS FAQ is being worked on. It will be released at a later date.
