Star Trek Online Wholly Ditches The Subscription

Star Trek Online is about to go free-er to play, with the announcement that subscriptions are going away and being replaced with a starter pack. While existing subscribers will be able to continue as usual, new players will not be able to sign up for a monthly subscription and will instead be directed to park their wallets in the Elite Starter Pack. The pack contains:

  • One new Character Slot
  • 20 Shared Bank Slots
  • 5 Captain Retrain Tokens
  • An Increase on your Energy Credit Cap to 2 billion Energy Credits

The starter pack essentially includes what a subscription would have normally unlocked, at the cost of one month’s subscription, leading some to speculate that Perfect World is just canonizing what many players have already been doing but in a more convenient package.
