We are investigating an issue where some players are seeing a "login failed for unknown reason" error at the log-in screen.
We are investigating a bug where some Gold Members may not have received their additional character slot -- details here (Will be fixed ASAP!).
UPDATE! We are also investigating reports of slow patching and are working on a resolution. For a better patch experience, please restart your launcher. It will pick up where it left off and should be faster to complete.

Inspired by the Literary and Foundry challenges as well as the complexity of creating characters and bridge officers of various species, I have decided to start a challenge dedicated to creating such characters/boffs.
The first challenge will deal with: The Remans
After the recent events in Romulan space, the Remans have won their freedom. However part of that freedom is in the ability to enlist in the Klingon Defense Force or Starfleet - but will they find happiness there? You will decide!
Your task will be to create an Alien Bridge Officer* costume and post all the details (except personalization, though notes can be added on the subject)in this forum thread. The bridge officer must look like a Reman, so it would be a good idea to use the Reman Bridge Officer from the "Cloaked Intentions" Featured Series as a basis if possible.
I will attempt to recreate each and every one of the candidates using my own bridge crew, and the best design will receive 250 000 Energy Credits ingame, and the design will be placed in the reserved post below.
* - Note that a character costume will suffice, however bridge officers are more commonly available and will be an easier method for most players. Whichever of these you choose depends on you alone.
Note that while I may attempt to create a costume of my own, it will not participate in the competition and will NOT affect the winners in any way.
Good luck, and have fun building!
Edit: I forgot to include an ending time - the challenge will last until August 1, 2012 at 1700 UTC.
