We will be bringing down Star Trek Online on 11.17.2011 from 6:00AM to 9:00AM PST (1300 to 1600 UTC) in order to perform maintenance and apply a new patch. We will provide an update once the maintenance has been completed.
Okay, I thought it said 13:00 UTC, which, as I am typing this, was 35 minutes ago. and I got the notice saying "down in 30 minutes" about 5 minutes ago.
So... is it UTC/GMT you mean, or Central European Time.
And aye, I have to agree, lack of patch notes usually means C-Store items, or patch notes appearing 5 minutes before the servers are up, but then again CCP spoilt me on patch notes, and bugs, and hotfixes ... and long delays ....
