Wasn't able to play last night, but I did test the patcher........PASS
The server status lightbulb seems to work too......PASS

One oddity was initial login when the server is down for maintenance. I noticed when it fails login it shows a message at the bottom telling you there is a problem with your account, please contact billing support (link). Clicking the link sends you to a webpage error message.

Now I figure this is because you guys know about the message and link and are shutting down billing support while doing maintenance, and it's no big deal. It's just a bit odd to see the message "problem with account". Maybe that could be updated with a message saying "unable to connect" or something. It already has "down for maintenance" above so no need to repeat that.

Otherwise, I'll continue to test what I can, when I can. Having fun and can't wait for retail release and my joined Trill.

Kwip: As you were.

First part of Patrol Vulcan Sector completed.....PASS WITH COMMENTS

While logging into the first sector, I got a message "Team Full" after about 45 seconds it loaded the sector and myself and a few others were quickly engaging Orions. This was a tough fight but very exciting. It is certainly not one you can win by charging forward guns ablaze.

I played the role of science ship by flying through the melee taking pot shots and hitting the primary target with my neutralize shields BO abillity. That one is nice. We were up against some bigger ships, and dropping those shields for a few seconds let my fleets torpedoes do what they were designed to. Damage taken running the gauntlet was severe, shields to 5-10% or less. Durring circle back, used other BO abillity of emergency power to shields. Tactic worked well.


When starbase loaded, I was a miranda in the station for about 45 seconds or so. Previously reported.
