No one knows - but it's been asked in the FAQ thread, so I'd assume we'll know in the near future.

A reasonable guess would be May 21, though.

The thing I find best about this is that if you pony up the $125 for these ships you get nine ships but no free ship slots. So if you want to use all nine ships you'll have to purchase more slots which will likely net even more money in Cryptic's pocket.

I don't believe an official date has been given, but it's safe to assume the pre-order will be here until LoR goes live on the 21st. At that time all the items will go into the C-Store and be their full price.
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.

If you are Silver, then yes, you would need to purchase more slots. But you can always just dismiss the C-Store ships and recall them whenever you like.

Not everybody keeps all their lower-tier ships when they level up, and not everybody will use all of these ships on the same character. But still a point well taken.

That is the fiscal model that F2P games use, yes.

This is a logical answer, and sounds reasonable.

We can, in my opinion, safely assume that the discount offer will end when LoR gets released.
Let us wear Swimsuits on Foundry maps or bridges please! I would pay zen for that.

All these people freaking out about the Legacy Pack. Here you go guys, I found you all some theme music.

Right, but for those that want to use all nine at once for whatever reason there's still that issue.

ah well, LTS was good while it lasted, at least we know the new trend.

Expansion = not free, even though we say it is but really we all know it isn't we just love to lie mwahahaha
How is a discount bundle a ripoff?
