there i was, getting a bit excited to come back to STO and see how it is again when... its a failure before it began. The game doesn't work for me and there's no reason it shouldn't. server keeps timing out, ridiculous load times and when i can get into my toon, nothing works, cant fly cant chat cant even reset my points. i can spin on the spot wonderfully but the rest is FUBAR'ed
have made numerous emails and gone through every help topic but there was lack of said help anywhere to be seen.
so it is with a heavy heart and disdain that i uninstall it and wonder off agian. too bad, would have liked to play it again.
done everything possible, and then some, removed my current graphiocs card, put in a later model one, resinstalled a dozen tiumes, update this update that, run it in different modes. all fo nought even had a 2 and a half hour chat with my isp and tracked every little bit of info to and from and to no avail. it really does suck monkey balls, well wanted to play again.
only option left is to rebuild my 5 year old pc from scratch and use that and see if it works on that. not the ideal situation though, rebuilding a pc just to play this but... thats all thats left
What Operating System are you using? A few of my fleetmates tell me they get some technical issues by running on Windows 7 x64.

my gosh! You sir are having quite some problems, I have never heard of in STO from anybody else. I do not believe its because of the game.
Respectfully uninstalling the game isn't going to fix it. The problem is with your hardware for sure. I assume you rebooted your modem/router as this can solve some connection issue, something about the Cryptic servers sending off packet sizes, I don't understand that part myself but certain routers will not even work with STO.
You really need to be on a GTX460 card or equivalent for this game with at least 2Gb ram and a quad core or i3 processor or better. I have 4 computers, the oldest is 6 years old with a dual core D950 processor and 2Gb ram, a crappy graphics card and it sitll runs fine. My youngest is 3 years old with a GTX460 and a Q6600 Quad core and I have everything maxed running full HD on a 40inch LCD TV and it looks awesome and plays at 25-40 fps. The other two computers are somewhere in between these specs, both 4 years old XP machines and it works fine on reasonably high graphics settings.
