From the main STO site and account info, my account now shows 'Star Trek Online - Preorder' under Activated Features - I believe this is correct for the Open Beta tomorrow (yay!).
One question I'm sure has come up multiple times though is if we'll get the retail keys in time for the Head Start, so we can start the Joined Trill character and get our bonuses, etc., or if they will be released only on the 'proper' start date? Considering the keys must have been generated for the boxed retail copies, it should be possible to get those to Valve and to us digital download users in tiem, right? It's not a dealbreaker type issue as it's only two days, but it would be nice if it went that smoothly. :)
Thanks to the the dev team and everyone who was in the closed beta for your work so far, and I hope the Open Beta is productive in squashing the last chunk of any remaining ones before launch - I know I'll do my best to help!
