That good advice about disabling "on demand patching" in your launcher options.
You might also want to check your system processes (task manager etc) to see if a program called Pando Media Booster is running while playing STO. It is a utility that gets downloaded with the game to help quicker patching etc, but can more often than not lead to slower patching as it uses up all your internet hokey pokey technobabble. If you have it, and are experiencing slow loads and slow patching, try kill it in task manager - if things improve, remove it altogether via control panel uninstall etc.
Ok. Thank guys.
Thats me started playing today.....20mins before the maintainance shut down(or wotever) lol
I had to download the patch then started playing...had to shut down for the maintianance ....now, starting the game up again....it says I need to download the patch again!!

You're in luck as today's update is a small, efficient patch for minor fixes and the Regent ACR. Happy hunting
