Disclaimer: I don't work for Cryptic, Atari or anyone associated with Star Trek Online (STO). My opinions are my own.

I hold a Lifetime Membership with STO; I participated in the Head Start weekend.

And like many fellow STO players, I'm frustrated at times with the server downtime, the program crashes--things which aren't avoidable by the userbase.

Despite all of the complaints I have (which won't be shared in this thread), I want to COMPLIMENT Cryptic/Atari as well.

* When the game app crashes, the launcher validates/verifies all of the game files before re-launching.
* I really enjoy the numerous nods to the prior Trek TV series and movies.
* I love the fact I could choose my own character names, my own ship name.
* I like the gameplay. I love the graphics.
* Notifications about downtime have improved since the Head Start weekend.
* This Forum site has been helpful to players like myself. There are some fantastic community members here.
* Cryptic says it has increased server capacity since Head Start -- thank you! It's nice NOT to wait in line (online) to log in!
* I see this as the beginning of an expanding MMO adventure. According to their latest press release, over a million players are part of STO. May this game continue to grow!

Here's mine:

No crashes & little lag for me since the fiasco that was "headstart" ended.
Love the ships, even if the Ambassador class needs to be in there.
Space combat has really grown on me bigtime.
Leonard Nimoy
Authentic sound effects (even if there's no music, which breaks my heart)

Not much I know, but I'm hoping it can only get better as the bugs are ironed out.

I'm really happy with the fact there's space.... And ground combat!

I love being able to see my in-game mail through the STO site.
Ground levels are always entertaining (despite some pathing issues)
FEELS like it's Star Trek
Fleet actions are exceptionally entertaining (love seeing 20+ Fed ships all at once)

The game is fun. So fun I haven't gone back to play CO, CoX, WoW, or Fallen Earth since I started the Beta.

Lots of teething issues now, but I'm sure they'll all get ironed out in due time.

Did I mention it's fun? :p

Love that I am passing the System of Vulcan on my way to Starbase 24 and I get a call for distress; I go in and find Klingons in Vulcan space.
After stomping the Klingons in Vulcan space, I continue my journey.

So many episodes of Star Trek start with:

While enroute to Beta Ceti IV the Enterprise receives a distress signal from Ceti Alpha IIi and turns to investigate.

Awesome feature!

Some people really are just walking adverts for neutering, aren't they?

Another positive - I'm VERY impressed with current DEV/GM input in the forums, advice etc.

Fleet actions are very cool also
