We are investigating a bug where some Gold Members may not have received their additional character slot -- details here (Will be fixed ASAP!).
UPDATE! We are also investigating reports of slow patching and are working on a resolution. For a better patch experience, please restart your launcher. It will pick up where it left off and should be faster to complete.

The good people you meet, they are out there. I also love some of the quests that are really quite good. The whole undine infiltration plot quests are interesting. The mission episode "Trapped" was well done; I liked the darker tone in that one. Trapped gave me the impression Hirogen are like Predator aliens from the movie with said name, where trophy skulls from other hunted alien species adorn the interior of the ships hull.
* Powerful characters editor
* Beautiful space, beautiful planets
* Casual friendly and fun
* Very good space combat, fun as hell
* The bridge officers make you feel you're the captain, great addition to the game
* A lot of Trek references, sometimes even obscure ones (favourite B'Lanna's food in the replicator )
* Very good episodic content
* I know a lot of people disagree, but I enjoy the ground combat too, I like to see my boffs in action
* Cryptic really listens, even if they can't do everything we want here and now
* I like some members of Cryptic very much (Gozer, Kestrel, Wishstone are my favs)
Whenever warping out of a system, I've adopted Picard's habit of pointing forward. I don't say engage, but I do the finger thing.
Well, I've been known to say engage a few times, but normally I point ahead and say, Make it so.

space combat is good.
also like how the pvp is set up. never cared for open pvp areas in mmo's they tend lead to gank fests. structured pvp like this game has is more enjoyably. addding a ladder sysytem both for indivisual players and faction would both add purpose to pvp.
Well, I agree about the episodes, but I HATE the queued PvP system. It's entirely meaningless. Why am I fighting klingons, besides trying to get badges? There's no storyline reason. What I do makes no difference, if I die, there's no penalty, if we lose the match, there's no penalty, and vice versa.
