I remember all the platitudes that Cryptic Studios gave about how their Cash Store was going to be "nothing but cosmetics and fluff"...

Then, they did a test. They took one of the ultimate fan favorite ships (Excelsior) and put it into the shop. And they made it better (tactically) than the in-game Sovereign class.

People were hooked, and in-general they overlooked the P2W aspect, because they loved the Excelsior.

It went downhill from there, and when the F2P finally hit, every ship going into the store, was better than same-tier in-game ships.

The same will happen here. We'll start of with cosmetics and fluff, then they will test us, and see how we react. If the results are favorable, they will open the floodgates, and it'll be all downhill from there.
Look, we got four or five of the main characters on this ship. I think we're gonna be okay.
