Geekboy for Life!

To celebrate my new job, I finally bit the bullet and signed up for a lifetime membership to Cryptic’s Star Trek Online MMO. And an unexpected bonus was that this weekend it was 20% off the regular price. Now the game needs to last at least 15 more months for me to cover my costs.

Star Trek OnlineI had thought about the lifetime deal when the game launched over a year ago, but the cost and the very real possibility that it would fail and shutdown before a year was up, kept me from doing it. Not only has the game survived, but it’s actually pretty good too. So I’m guessing it will be around for a while.

There’s been some talk of the game going free to play like Cryptic’s Champions Online, but that is probably over a year away and wouldn’t affect me much anyway. I’d still prefer the paid premium access over the free to play options anyway. I guess then I’m betting that Star Trek Online will live long and prosper!
