If anyone else has had this occur please add to this topic. I will verify it later as it is 4am here now.
Playing as Klingon went to log out (not quit game) of character. Not only did this kick me all the way out back to the initial launch log-in screen but also refused to accept my password upon immediate re-entry. I then closed the game totally and relaunched still refused my password (yes entered multiple times and made sure it was not me being dumb). Did a physical reboot of my computer then worked fine.
Unsure at this juncture if the Log-in DB server temporarily was on a coffee break or it is something more. Posting this now in the event someone else has the issue they know what corrected it for me.
Will update this initial post with replication test results later.
