Also, if someone wants to help me defeat the Undine in the Bomari System, that'd be spiffing

I have not been keeping up with this due to family and work things and wanted to know how this F2P thing will work. Can someone explain it?
Basically they open up the game for everyone to play without paying a subscription fee.
All you have to do is download the client, create an account and play.
Free players are called "Silvers" and subscribing payers (monthly sub or lifetimers) are gold "Golds".
Silvers have some restrictions that't shouldn't affect their gameplay much (inventory/bank space, character slots, ship slots, bridge officer slots and a lower energy credits (the most common ingame currency)).
YOu can unlock most of these things with alá carte microtransactions.
SO check it out.
Does that mean I loose my present character?

No. If you have more than two characters, the additional characters count as characterslots that you already unlocked.
i think the biggest thing you will have to worry about is that I believe you will have to convert a character made while you are a gold to silver status if you're playing for free.
