I've had problems with GameStop and Amazon before as well...GameStop gave away my copies during a midnight release, and I had to drive around 2 different stores to get my copies for my wife and I. Amazon didn't ship out my pre-order until 3 weeks after release. I almost got stuck in this rut, if I didn't cancel my pre-order in-store with BB and instead go to games.bestbuy.com for the DDE.

Yep, I'm one of those who's posted here about my experiences with Amazon and GameStop.

Besides I kinda wanted the Targ for my Klingon (dont give a rats ass about the Tribble as those are a dime a dozen and you get them for free)

Even if you did get a game copy, you would have to spend another bunch of effort with Cryptic to get them to give you the Tribble/Targ. Right now that's where I'm at. FYI there is a games.bestbuy.com and according to the pre-order FAQ, you should still get the Tribble/Targ bonus...Cryptic already fixed the Connie for the GameStop DDE (through trymedia), now they just need to get their act together and also fix the BestBuy DDE (through digitalriver)

The problem is, I absolutely despise Gamestop as well.

From now on its Amazon FTW!!!!!!
Amazon made me wait almost a month for a pre-order. Plus look at the fiasco on the forums right now about amazon.co.uk canceling gold editions

How about games.bestbuy.com? They sent my wife's and my keys at midnight PST on 2/2. Now I just need to wait for Cryptic to give the correct bonuses for the Best Buy keys.

That's why I went in-store to get the physical box with beta card. Then when the CE was announced, they wouldn't let me pre-order the CE in-store because there was only one UPC on the preorder box...and they canceled my pre-order and told me to go to their website instead.
