right click on STO in steam, go to properties, then click on the tab "local files" click on the button "verify local cache integrity" dunno if this will help or not, but it might be a step in the right direction.

I think i'm just going to go buy the ******n game. Cause now I have restarted steam, it still crashes when i try to launch. So I tried to verify the game.

It deleted the entire folder AGAIN so now i'm going to have to re-download the f'ing game for a THIRD TIME!!!!!

Edit: I found a backup copy that hadn't been touched yet, so I launched the launcher, and it's now downloading 828MB. So we'll see if this works.

Edit #2: Yes, it worked. I am in. So I used the one from the open beta client, I only used the Steam to 'activate the account' basically...

This service is turned on by default on all versions of Windows® VistaTM, but Microsoft grants access to these copies only in Ultimate, Business, and Enterprise editions. This is where ShadowExplorer comes into play. For more information on Shadow Copy, visit Microsofts website."

1. Download ShadowExplorer

2. In ShadowExplorer go to
For 64-bit users C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common
For 32-bit users C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common

3. Right click on the folder titles star trek online and click export.

4. Export the star trek online folder to your desktop or wherever you want it.

5. Close Steam

6. For 64-bit users open C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common
For 32-bit users open C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common

7. Replace the star trek online folder that is already in there with the one you recovered using ShadowExplorer.

8. Run Star Trek Online with the shortcut Steam originally placed on your desktop, steam will launch Star Trek Online, it will then do a very small update that will only take a few seconds.

9. After that the Star Trek Online Launcher will open and install the 59mb patch.

10. That's it! You're good to go

If anyone has any questions feel free to ask. Post your results!!!

After following these instructions it worked great for me. Thanks so much!!!
