This happened to me as well, here is what I did.

I have STO installed via the OB client, installed in the root directory of my H drive.

Have a shortcut on the desktop pointing to the .exe.

Steam shows that I have STO, however it's "not installed".

Right click and select "start installing" and it starts downloading STO to the steamapps folder.

Right click again and select "pause installing".

However, you will now notice that there are additional options on the right click menu, one of which is "View game CD key".

click this, it will then display your keys (preorder key and Deluxe CD key).

Select Deluxe CD key, click the "copy key to clipboard" button and then goto http://www.startrekonline.com/activate and paste the key and activate.

Close steam and launch the client via the STO shortcut (that doesn't use the steamapp folder .exe, it uses the already downloaded .exe sitting in a seperate folder).

Hope this helps.
