Should star trek online really have a monthly fee?

It doesn't bother me. They keep pumping out new materials and story. c store purchases aren't enough to support all the labor that goes into the game. The price isn't that much, either.
Besides STO does more to pump out fresh story, support fans, and establish a community than anyone else in the franchise, far better than this site. This site doesn't charge and the boards are far inferior to STO's. Fan clubs and MMOs have paid dues, that's what keeps them alive and of quality.

Yes, even though I do not play, it makes sense to charge so that you can generate new content. It works for WOW.

I've played many MMOs and STO pumps out much more content than any of the others I've played but still charges the same amount. I'm not speaking about items for sale in the Cryptic Store either, just missions and the like.

That's what REALLY impresses me, not so much the state of the game but how far they've come in a year. The money goes to good use. I have no doubt it will be even more amazing next year.

A quality product would have.


They just rolled out the Multi-Vector-Assault mode today, exciting right? I think not. My Prometheus class is still sitting in the garage waiting for it. It will sit there longer I suppose.


I'm not paying for a c-store purchase of something that should be included in the game.Its like watching the final episode of deep space nine and getting to the battle and having a message pop up "to see the following content: order now!"


EDIT: just realised it is in game for 500 emblems. That's great; i suppose.

Galaxy with saucer sep is only available at VA, so this doesn't bother me. It is an extra edge to keep you playing when you reach the endgame. Plus, you are only allowed to have one special VA ship, now I can have 2! It only makes sense to me to reserve the powerful ships.

I was more annoyed that we never got Ambassador or Constellation class. If they put them in now, I won't care. I was also more annoyed of how weak the galaxy dreadnought was but they fixed it.

I feel it should be lowered some because it doesn't seem like it's as well put together as games I have paid the same for. I'll pay the 14.99 but I want it lower. The C-Store thing isn't terrible but it adds more cost and that stuff should be ingame but then again I won't die without the, XD

Yeah ive come to realise that they do continuous updating but $15 a month is a bit much so maybe if they lowered the cost more people might play!

 I think its crazy it should be about 10 dollars less like 2 dollars a month I play it, and the c-store needs to raise AP

I dont think Online should have a monthly fee, i have other subscriptions i have to pay like xboxlive and netflix, i dont need another ten bucks on my bill... because of this fee i have not yet bought Online yet, but if someone were to convince me that the fun was worth the money then i might look in to buying it.
