I have to agree to a point with the OP, it does at this time look like STO will be going all out 'Pay 2 Win' and Cryptic will be following their overlords lead.

Sorry bud but they already made their cash from Gold/Lifers so yeah it should still be 'free' as we have already paid them for a premium service and in no way should we be hit with any extra costs, I strongly disagree that its inevitable that 'things are going to get taken away' it does'nt have to be that way, this whole T5 ships into the C-Store thing is an out and out money grab, laden with U-turns. Alas I dont think D'Angelo has much say in the matter, the accountant types he jokingly refers to are in my mind the PW overlords, if Cryptic was a 'Lady of the Night' then PW would be their cash rich pimps, so D'Angelo just has to bend over, think of England and take whats coming to him, its a shame as the guy seems a realy nice bloke.
I realy do hope that Chris & J-Man 'pop a salvo over the nose of U.S.S. Cryptic over this matter on the next show (100 pt3).
heres to the next show, heres to you Jeremy! cheers.
p.s. Jeremy what is an 'Associate Systems Designer' what will you be doing day to day at Cryptic? thx again.
