Guys, if you are still having issues, please be patient. The problem as described by Brandon above is not a problem on YOUR end or THEIR [Cryptic's] end but in between. In laymen terms, you don't connect directly through to Cryptic but you "hop" along from one network segment to the next. Much like getting on a interstate to go from your house in New York to Cyrptic outside of San Fran, there is NOT a direct interstate route but you go from one interstate road to another as you need.

This is something that is external to Cryptic and thus not something that can be fixed "BY" them either. Again, thank you for understanding and your patience as the STO team (IMHO) wants everyone to be online for the 3 year anniversary.

Even though I can log into the game and have been able to throughout this random issue, I have included my trace route below in case it helps.

PS Commentary - Going back to my example of interstates, looks like I went from Ohio to Texas to New York to Boston MA. Man, that was a heck of a Commute in distance but the shortest in time.

So I have to take this opportunity to apologize on behalf of all other times for the ignorant, but especially for all the impatient! And to you: It's really worrying that you obviously are not in a position, you to deal with something else. And anyone who has installed his game or Louncher new, and therefore now has even more problems, I can only write: "Even guilt."

Many thanks to the team, to have solved these problems as quickly.

The only advance since yesterday:

Now it says "Loading" in the Launcher...no more progress.

edit: InGame now, but Launcher is still not working properly.

Still cannot log in via a mobile connection (but I am told it works via cable in my country). The error message has changed, though:

"The Patchclient got a message while it was in a state with no response function."

Now, I'll only need this mobile connection for another two days, and then not for a while, but... I figured Cryptic might want to know. I won't open a ticket, because by the time someone gets to work on it, I'll be back home (and hopefully, for quite some time), but at least you now know.

Edit: It's not the mobile connection, same problem occurs ia Wi-Fi connection here at the hotel where I'm staying. So maybe something got screwed up when I tried to connect yesterday. Never mind.

This happened yesterday to me in the uk. It was fixed this morning, game launched fine, last played about 90 minutes ago (around 7pm GMT).

Just tried to relaunch the game and it happened again! So the fix seems to have unfixed!

I got on last night after 3 hours and now today my launcher is throwing up scripting errors, loading a web page that cant be displayed and sitting loading non stop. What is going on? Why is this game suddenly so broken? Ive never had issues like this...
