Hi Captains,

We will be performing scheduled maintenance on the Cryptic Account system tomorrow, Thursday, June 28th, at 7:00am PDT (click here to view in your timezone) and expect it to only last 2 hours. During this time, you will not be able to create or manage Cryptic accounts, create or track your in-game tickets, and players will not be able to log into the game; however, players already in the game should not be affected. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Thanks for your patience and understanding,

- The Star Trek Online Team

The question about the forum name though, would LOVE to know the answer to that one! Also, when will STO fleets and characters be tied into our profiles?
Actually the exchange rate from USD>ZEN>CP hasn't been equal in the time that I've been playing. When converting your purchased ZEN, their would be a "conversion fee" I suppose, 2000 ZEN would only amount to 1400 CP or something like that. That's close to 5USD that you're being ripped off. If they're making the exchange rate 100% equal now, well I'll be pissed for not waiting but happy to know that in the future if I do buy ZEN, it'll be at an even rate.

I have to disagree with you.

$62.50 = 5,000 CP This equates to $1 = 80 CP

$50 = 5,000 ZEN This equates to $1 = 100 ZEN

The conversion rate from ZEN to CP is 100 ZEN to 80 CP. Therefore it's exactly the same.

One thing I have noted is that if you pay by certain payment methods and you buy 5,000 ZEN, you get an 300 ZEN thrown in. If you do the math, that means you can get $1 for 84.8 CP.

Yes, I know that it's not an earth-shatteringly large amount, but at least you're getting something extra (NEVER complain when you get extra for free), and it beats a kick in the teeth.

And at least it will be more clear the price. 100 ZEN = 1 Dollar . 25 dollar ship = 2500 zen.

No mistakes in that

This is my experience as well. NOW, the only thing we need to make sure of is that the ZEN/CRYPTIC points for items in the store needs to be adjusted down when they convert fully to ZEN. Otherwise we really will have our points worth less.

Sorry but that is kinda bs..
If it were true, i'm on +1 time, which means the server goes offline, or maintenance is done, starting 15:00 my time, yet it starts like an hour later..
