I am having difficulty getting online through the (portable?) gateway. Usually when I click on the ARC's "Star Trek Online" button, another window pops up which I think is the gateway. It loads patches and then the blue button at the bottom says "Engage" when everything is up-to-date. Today is Sunday and there are no buttons at the bottom, just a short message saying "Unable to authenticate". The internet search says that this type of message occurs when the star trek online server is down, but I have found no mention of a scheduled shutdown for today (11/17/2013). It was down yesterday, I think, but should be down today. Below is the screen pic I took of that small gateway window:
I can not donate to the fleet projects through the gateway. Is anyone else having this problem? Also, I have noticed that sometimes the project will actually be started and the gateway shows time to finish, but also says it is some % complete.
I've been haveing issues on gateway with some of my toons, and this affects my toons across all factions and 10/14 of my characters have this bug.
According to gateway those chars have:
No captain's picture with a starfleet rank of a tactical cadet
No ship, it won't even load a picture.
No accolades at all
No fleet even though i know some toons are in one
And no bridge officers either
Not sure what's going on, but one of the working toons is actually a starfleet engineering cadet the infos of which actually loads interestingly enough.
And yes, the lowest rank in the game is Cadet, but you become an Ensign when you leave the tutorial
Just thought i'd give the Gatway devs a heads up lol
also noticed that on the iPad it fails to select all but the top character in the list, it'll make the selection noise and the name will light up, but the browser remains on the char select screeen
