I was just on the STO Website and discovered this. Honestly, I'm not sure what to think of this. The Expansion isn't yet released and we haven't even got the chance to test the Romulans on Tribble. Yet Cryptic found another way to make horrendous amounts of money.
When I first saw it I was thinking "WHAT? Let me rend their limbs from their bodies with a blunt and rusty Bat'leth!". Then I thought - how is it really different than the Zen for the packs in game? I'll wager a bottle of Bloodwine and 1 hour with one of my Orion officers that everything in the pack is available from the C-Store.
Ultimately I think it's aimed to get new subscribers, with how it's all worded and everything. Still, it's not great as a player to read it..........
I'm a bit torn. Obviously I'm keen to make the most of Legacy of Romulus, and the new ships would be really fun in the Legacy pack - but 80 quid is a lot. I'm much more likely to pick up the starter pack I think, and then invest in one or two C-store ships a little way down the line when I know which types of Warbird I enjoyed the most.
