Jeez, trying to find info on this convoluted site is near to impossible.
Frack, even the info on buddy/referral keys is a copy-pasta from Champions.
Anyhoo, enough whining and back to my question and to the fine knowledgeable people of STO.
After downloading the "Demo", do I need to buy an actual gamebox and enter its key to activate the game?
A nice 60 days code would cost me a full 10 less than the cheapest box, which only gives me 30 free days anyway.
The FAQs I eventually found on this are too general and outdated. No mention of Gametime codes at all.
BTW, are there separate US/Euro servers? Or do codes(gametime or box) from everywhere work?
