Do i need this Star Trek Downloader?
 
I bought the retail version of the game...installed and patched and this Star Trek Downloader popped up and has been downloading something forever now! What is it downloading? Do i need it?

Thats what you will use to log into the game anytime you want to play. It also updates and patches the game for you whenever it is needed.

The Downloader is a tiny bittorrent client that will download a copy of the installer. The Launcher is what does patching.

No. You have to wait until the launcher updates your client to the same game as the server.
