We will be bringing down Star Trek Online on February 6 2012 from midnight to 2:00AM Pacific Time (0800 to 1000 UTC) in order to perform maintenance. We will provide an update once the maintenance has been completed.
It's a scheduled maintenance. Not sure if anything WAS broken, they just need to bring it down. And hey, at least it's at midnight PST, instead of 8AM. Should make some people happy, other people puddles of angst.
