No kidding. I have a hard time believing that people are actually still paying the monthly sub fee at this point. Anyone that's not a LTS and still paying has pretty much shown they won't quit no matter what, I guess...
Most of my devotion to the game is based on my love of trek in general.
I was hesitant to get the LTS because I wasn't sure if STO would survive. After STO goes F2P, I'm considering creating a free acct and temporarily shelfing my gold membership. Once I see how things work out, I'll either choose to keep the gold membership or convert it to F2P.
