Much appreciation and thanks for the great news Mr Flakes!

This was unexpected, and unnecessarily generous. A little love to your loyal players, even those who are F2P, can do wonders.

I sincerely hope the trolls and others dot take a nice and simple gesture and turn it into a complaint fest that "it's not fair they can't get it because they're not eligible'', or "just bought it so they want their money back", or any number of other possible ways of finding the grey lining to the silver cloud.

Whatever it is, no matter how useless/useful or cheap/expensive, I am happy and grateful that they cared enough to do it at all, for essentially no reason.

Even if I already have what ends up being given away, I still think this is one of the coolest things this game, this company has done. Quite happy, and pleasantly surprised.

Extreme coolness, on the order of zero degrees Kelvin.

If I might make a small suggestion ...

If you're giving away ships, how about a sale on ship slots to go with it? Like the current sale on costume slots.

Gotta work on the PR department either way. Thank you for the opportunity to get some freebies. My only concern is how many of these items will be on the Romulan faction, seeing as I got the legacy pack I pretty much have the lot anyway.
He said that there are no Romulan items being given away as they are 'too new'.

I know that you can not give away specifics, but with the ships giveaway will we be seeing "high-end" ships up for or just a random C-Store ship? While I figure any of the 3 pack ships are off the table, will ships like the Grumba/Kar'Fi be potential candidates for the KDF or more normal ships like the Varanus/B'rel Retrofit?

Once again, thank you guys for this opportunity and I look forward to whatever is in store.
I was kinda wondering about things like that. Especially since being a Lifetime member I get a Ka'fi free with a vet token. Then with romulan legacy pack I have all Romulan stuff. Still I can't complain just because I have these items, I'll just have to miss a day.

Also by the things I've heard "they'll get progressively more expensive" so a uniform day 1, maybe a T5 ship day 5.

Althrough my experience tells me that there might be some kind of snag... we'll see.

Ahahaha oh Cryptic, you guys are funny. See I thought you said that you were giving away free C-store costumes and ships and....

Huh? What do you mean they're really giving away C-store stuff for free?


WHAT. Holy crap yeah! And KDF stuff too? Man I've been thinking about making a new Klingon alt but I hadn't decided yet. But if I'm going to be getting some free KDF C-store ships...then hell yeah dudes! KDF here I come!

Since Feb. 2009

It's time for STO to get a complete UI overhaul.
