By then, enough people will have probably gotten fed up and left that I'll actually be able to get on! I wish I'd known about TTH, or I would have gone there.
I'm a big Trek fan, and I really, really wanted this to be a great game, but I'm starting to doubt it after all of these issues, not to mention some of the "support" I've seen offered by Cryptic devs on this board. Hopefully I'm wrong.
Don't worry, the game is good and all of this unpleasantness is related to the beta (though expect it to last a few days after release, too, though perhaps not as intense).
And fileplanet is not related to Cryptic, it's just a site they chose to link to as it's easy to upload stuff. Fileplanet has always, and will always suck (though I pay for a sub so I guess I'm part of the problem. I do it for the beta keys).
There are alternatives to fileplanet, including the torrent.
