Regardless of whether I do or not, the problem repeats itself when I try to start the game again.

I've tried reinstalling three times, but no luck. I've submitted a help ticked, but I know it can take a while for Cryptic to respond. Is somebody able to help?
Are you using any sort of Firewall software that could be blocking the STO app from communicating over your internet connection?
