Star Trek Online Borg with Lifetime Subscription

Star Trek Online Website now offers subscription options for Cryptic's upcoming Trekkie MMORPG, which include an option for lifetime subscriptions. This page has word on special offers available only for pre-order customers: Annual subscriptions for $119.99 USD/year which will earn you two additional character slots or a lifetime subscription for $239.99 that also include two extra slots as well as a playable Borg. There is an accompanying FAQ with further details, including an outline of the Borg's special abilities, but nowhere does it say whether the Borg is exclusive to these lifetime subscriptions. After the game's launch they offer three different plans, in US dollars they are $14.99 monthly, $41.97 quarterly, or $77.94 semi-annually. Update: This story originally listed annual subscriptions as $199.99. Apologies for the error.

I've been playing the beta on and off with my cousin. I, myself, have never followed Star Trek (my Dad used to watch it in the 90's, that's it) -- My cousin, however, is a real Trekkie. His Dad was an even bigger Trekkie.

I recently started becoming a Trekkie and becoming interested in the older shows after watching the newest movie etc etc..

I tried the game because it looked nice, and more intuitive/friendly than EVE, which pelts your screen with innumerable buttons with no description, and expects you to conquer the galaxy on your own...

It's a pretty decent beta (despite getting kicked off occasionally and having issues logging back in) -- as far as Star Trek goes, I don't know, but phasers are badass.

The starter missions are kinda boring, but they move things along. As long as they don't stop holding my hand halfway through and leave me in some galaxy surrounded by enemies with no way to communicate with other players or a clue on how to get out of there.

In terms of the Borg bonus...

I am Dyslexic of Borg.

Fusistance is retile.

Your ass will be laminated.
