Just to clarify

All the game packages are the same from all locations.. if you didn't research all the packages before making a decision, that is your fault, not Cryptics.

the packages offered are Regular Edition, Collectors Edition and Digital Deluxe Edition.

Regular Edition = no bonuses

Collectors Edition offers :

Deluxe Packaging: Futuristic 3dX holography set in a high quality brushed aluminum finish. Heavy duty construction with magnetic closures and nested compartments for all components.

Deluxe Manual: High end, hardbound, art book, manual, and disc case in a single, elegant package. “HD Printing” on over 40 glossy pages of exclusive art from the Star Trek Online Universe.

Communicator Badge: High quality cast metal design based on the in-game badge model. Fully 3d Sculpted with recessed burst and curved contours.

Guest Passes: Credit card style buddy passes to invite three of your friends for a ten day trial of Star Trek Online.

Red Matter Capacitor: A unique item that charges up and delivers extra energy to all of your ship’s equipment for a short time. A device that, when used, gives you a small bump in energy, has a long recharge.

Next Generation Uniform: Uniform Options from the Next Generation. The timeless look worn by Picard, Data and Riker.

“Deep Space Nine” Uniform: Uniform Options from the “Deep Space Nine” Series. Grey shoulders, on a black uniform, just like Sisko, Worf and Dax.

the Digital Deluxe Edition, which is Download only, offers :

Original Star Trek Uniform Set: Three uniforms from the original series (blue, red, yellow).

Exclusive “KHAAAN!” Emote: An unforgettable moment from the second Star Trek Film. This exclusive emote allows players to relive Kirk’s unforgettable moment of fury, with the timeless cry… “KHAAAN!”

Exclusive Klingon Blood Wine Toast Emote: Raise a glass like a Klingon! Greet other players with an exclusive Klingon gesture –the blood wine toast.

Unique Registry Prefix: Give your ship the coveted NX prefix, seen only on a handful of elite Starfleet vessels like the Defiant, 22nd century Enterprise, and Prometheus.4

Unique Ship Item: Automated Defense Battery. This Tactical Module grants any ship a passive 360 arc attack power with a short range.

Joined Trill Race - The ability to play as a “Joined Trill” – a symbiote that grants you several lifetimes of experience.

Now the Pre-Order Bonuses are different by Location

Gamestop offers the TOS Constitution Class Starship with blue Phasers

Atari offers 500 Cryptic Points

Amazon offers Liberated Borg Bridge Officer

Steam offers Chromodynamic Armor

Direct 2 Drive offers Multi-Spatial Personal Shield

Best Buy offers in-game "pet" for your character in the game. Play as the Klingons, and you'll get a Targ; play as the Federation, and you'll get a Tribble!

so the packages are all the same for everyone.. the only difference is the Pre-Order Bonus depending on location.

The only NEW package out now is the SCI-Fi offer through Atari

which is Regular Edition of the game + 1 Bonus Items .. there are no other extras in this bundle.

Neodymium Deflector Dish - An in-game item grants a bonus to Auxiliary power, boosts maneuverability, and increases the effectiveness of a ship's Science abilities.

That's It.. throw in the Sfi Fi Store Discount :

Syfy Store Discount - Purchasers of the Syfy bundle will receive 15% off their next purchase at the Syfy store!

and since it is Ordered Through Atari, you get the Atari Pre-Order Bonus as listed Above.

Please note that I am listing US bonuses and packages only.

Hope this helps.
