I managed to log on perfectly earlier (before the patch). It has only been since the patch update that my launcher wont load.

There are No Longer any STO Veterans... We're Just Minions who have Played the Game for the last 4.95 years.
Not bashing, usually their maintenance is routine & finishes before the stated time, but they could just upload the patch, give us the url to download it so we can move it into our sto folder and run the exe.
Their mechanism of patching (from what I can tell) is rather complex.
They'd probably be able to whip up a standalone patch in the short term - but it's not a matter of simply releasing it.
