I've received my pre-order codes which allow me to play open beta but also to play headstart. I've received e-mails recently saying I wont get the special bonus codes until 2nd Feb.
But this will render my headstart character pointless. One of my bonuses is being able to play Joined Trill.
Presumably I'm going to have to restart my character because I wont be able to just change races!!! I'm also supposed to receive bonus skills points (around 38% extra during Ensign training). Now this can I suppose be added afterwards, but as I understand it, they are starting points. So WILL they be added later.
