Star Trek Online Going Free-to-Play This Year

Perfect World's Q2 2011 Results Earnings Call Transcript on Seeking Alpha has word that Star Trek Online will boldly go where many MMOGs have gone before, as the currently subscription-based Trekkie MMORPG will go free-to-play by the end of this year (thanks Massively). Here's word:

So when Perfect World acquired Cryptic, one of the contribution from Perfect World to Cryptic is we can share our free-to-play experience with Cryptic. So I want to emphasize is that never we’ve done a free-to-play model game, so we’re going to launch this game in US and also in China, so we expect to run these type if free-to-play model game. We have a bigger potential in US and also in China. And also Star Trek Online, after the acquisition, in fact Cryptic is working on the free-to-play model for Star Trek Online. This is going to be launched by the end of this year as well. So I think free-to-play model we have a bigger potential in US market and also in China market. Thank you.
