Once the software is installed and you start the launcher, your screen will look like this. Sign in and click 'Submit'. You'll have to download a bunch of patches (everything since launch) and it will take a while, but that screen should look like this when finished. Click 'Engage' to start STO.

Ok... um... Are there any desktop icons on the screen or in the start menu? When it finishes loading the patches, it doesn't say "Engage" in the lower right corner of the game window? What excatly are you looking at when you're done installing?

Please be more specific, and don't refer to "uncouthe" words, even if you star them out; It still leads to infractions.

Read the manual it should help.

But if you fill in User name and Password click continue it should scan for updates if there are they will be installed after that the button change in engage, that's all.

Thank you, that explains why its taking so long to patch (mind you iI had no idea what was patching anyway) so i'll just wait for the patch to occur then engage?

The first thing you can do, if you're seeking assistance from the forum, is to calm down and adopt a more appropriate tone.
