# 1 Player returning to the game
01-07-2012, 04:24 AM
Got an email the other informing me that STO is now free to play so I thought I would come and have a look. So, I paid for a 1 month subscription!!

Anyway, will I still have my old character and what MAJOR changes have happened to the game? It has been about 1 year since I played STO.

Cheers

Welcome back! A year is a long time and while there was a lack of mission content for a long time, many improvements and new features were added.

You will still have your old characters etc, but if they do not show up when you log in, just log out, and log back in (as I believe they are stored on another database if you have not logged in for a long time).

We are in Season 5 now, and a lot of what is happening at present can be found in these links:

Thank you, that answers my question (hopefully). I haven't played in over a year either, I logged into my old account at the website a little earlier while the game is installing & updating and it showed that I had no characters. After the installing & patching is complete I'll follow those steps to see if they appear.

After you haven't logged into the game for a fairly long period of time, your chracters are removed from the main game database and placed into archival storage. After you have logged into the game again, your character is retrieved and restored to the main game database. While your character are in archive storage, you can't see them on the My Characters section of the web site,
