So you don't have to go though the 11 pages of people post saying unhelpful things over an over so here is the important info:

What you need to remember, is this is cryptic's first time at creating and delivering an MMO of this size, and for so many players. You need to give them time to optimize things, and stop being elfish, sayign everything should be perfect, just because YOU want to log in now.
So stop your whining about logging onto the server and stop the posting the same thing over and over it does not help them when you say, "fix it now", "i can't log in" and stuff like that. Be patient they will get it fix in time.
The thing is though they should have seen it coming.
Star Trek online is possibly the most highly anticipated game since the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 so for them to seriously under estimate the volumes of players that could be connecting/connected at any one time is.....well i won't lie it makes me feel like i've been robbed of £49.99
Not only is it going to be a massive MMO its also going to be home of possibly the entire worlds supply of Star Trek Nerds (myself included!!) so i say again - They should have seen it coming and beefed the servers up to stop this issue from happening.
I truly hope that everything todo with the servers IE connecting etc is fixed before release otherwise Cryptic are going to be in real trouble and the forums will be getting real busy with people complaining.
ITS BETA!!! this is what beta is for to find these issues so they can be solved before release, Beta is simply a perk it is not the game, give your head a shake if you are getting upset about this, this is why they have beta to test server capacities.
Silkroad Online- a worldwide MMO- with thousands of members- possibly millions- has full servers all the time Besides the free players- we spend a fortune to (like 500.)a year for extras! Like preium 30 day tickets that allow you to log in quicker. But like I said- It being around for years- updating regularly- re releasing new clients- the servers are always full. Its the nature of the MMO- and I'm sure that there are going to be as many or more worldwide STO players. And so I wait..................
