    Smile Upcoming Contet for ST: O

    A brave little theory, and actually quite coherent for a system of five or seven dimensions -- if only we lived in one.

    And I just noticed that the Federation side is getting the Ahn-woon and the Ushan-tor blades for melee.

    And it looks like that the Cryptic crew are going to try to add the Kzinti

    From what I have been told it looks like Silver grants almost all in game content. There will be limits though such as fewer character slots, ships and probably a limit on emails and use of things like the Foundry, ingame market etc. Gold has access to everything.

    So STO is going FTP beginning 17JAN.
    What can be expected with this change?
    What of new people coming into the game? What of existing paying players?

    Gold players ie. Those who paid a subscription will have extra slots for ships and characters, they will have full access to all of the missions and monthlys. Silver will have limited character and ship space ie only two slots for each but the option to buy more, I think they get fewer duty officers, the mission arcs such the Deferi, Reman story arcs will be purchasable for silver, similar to what they have done for Champions Online. The new model sees income from the C Store and mission arc purchases. Lifetime subs get access to everything plus a few perks although they may change from the current ones.
