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.

Hey Verno, I totally agree with you. It was definitely heavy on the grinding. But I guess I prefer it that way over the newer MMO's which see way too easy to attain level/loot and solo everything. Things have more value when you have to work to get it. I recall in FF, I was level 60 and I still couldn't solo a level 30 goblin.

But its true, each session was 5+ hours or its just a waste of time. On top of that, I think 2 of those 5 hours were spent looking for a white mage or red mage, hehe.

I don't know, I just don't think that time investment should necessarily equate rewards as it promotes lazy design methods like FFXI had. Ultima Online had a better approach and it looks like the newer FF MMO will be focusing on a skill based advancement system much like UO used so I'll check it out.
