Please try the following and see if they help resolve your issue.
In the Launcher, go to Options and check 'Disable On-Demand' patching. See if this works.
You can then try to 'Force-Verify' to make sure your files are not corrupt or missing.
You can also try to run in Safe Mode as well.
Here are some other possible solutions if you have not already done so:
Make sure the game and your drivers (graphics, network, sound, motherboard, etc) are fully updated.
You may have to be on a Windows Admin account, or have Run as Admin access to be able to download, install, update, and run the game. If on Windows Vista or 7, you may have to change the level of your UAC settings or turn them off temporarily.
You can try adding the game folder/files to your exceptions list in your antivirus and firewall software. Please see the help menu or support website for the software that you use if you aren't sure how to do it.
At your own risk, you may have to disable your antivirus, firewall, and other security software temporarily while you download, install, update, login to, and play the game. Sometimes the security software will block it or throttle it, no matter what you try or even if you try to add exceptions for the game files in your security software.
Stop any processes that may be interfering with the networking and causing issues with your connection.
Remove/Uninstall any unnecessary programs such as toolbars or Pando Media Booster. You may also need to close programs such as Teamviewer.
You may need to uninstall the game, making sure to remove any excess files, then re-install it.
If the above does not work, please respond with answers to the following:
1) What exactly did you try from the above, and what were the results? (If you have tried them already, let us know exactly which you have tried)

Your response is not the problem solving one .
I am still either being not capable to log in the first time , or when i am logged in i am being dropped of the server to the logging screen again .
This just now has happened over 4 times during the last 1 hour and 30 minutes .

I apologize for the difficulty you experienced connecting to the server! This can sometimes happen when the game is patching or undergoing maintenance.
I recommend restarting your computer and network hardware, and attempting to log in again. If you continue to experience the same error, please let me know and I will escalate your query.
We appreciate your patience, and thank you for playing!

I keep getting disconnected constantly from the game during combat situations or just standing in a station or what other situation .
I get freeze ups while in combat , just sudden kick off's from the server .
Even had a sudden close down of the whole game and ended up in the desktop with no STO browser left aswell .
I have NOD32 internet security with firewall , when running firewall i get kicked of , and without the firewall on i get kicked off .
I updated my graphics driver just last week .
My internet provider is very reliable , with any other game like Battlefield3 DC universe or other game it is fine .
I got no other third programs besides teamspeak3 and Apple Itunes latest edition .
60Mbits/sec internet connection
All i get is the message "get disconnected from server" , "contact support" .

I have responded also that re-installing does not work either .
I have said that there was mentioning on the forum about server to client issues , specifically on the European server .
Now i even tried something myself where i thought it could have been me router i use between my modem and internet cable connection , but still get disconnected from the game suddenly .
I feel i am not being really helped by the support customer service .
The links they send me are nothing of the sorts that give me any information on my connection problem what so ever .
Any more constructive insights from you players anf forum techy's
