I was considering going gold just to get past this massive queue but from reading some of the other threads I can see that even gold members are waiting. What I'd like to know is what are your wait times for queue as gold looking like right now?
As I write this the queue for non gold is sitting around 16k.
LTSer here: Last night - I was 1897 of 20,986, and it took maybe 5 minutes to rise to the top, got in, added new traits and did the Romulan Rep T5 workaround to unlock Remans, got disconnected - was back in a queue at 980 of 18,688, got back in after about 3 minutes - and played on that character for the next few hours (there was a fair amount of lag here and there, but didn't get disconnected again.

Keep in mind that how long you wait is entirely dependent upon how many people leave. You can be Gold and #4 out of 17,222, but if 4 people don't leaves for 20 minutes you still need to wait to get in.
STO is about my Liberated Borg Federation Captain with his Breen 1st Officer, Jem'Hadar Tactical Officer, Liberated Borg Engineering Officer, Android Ops Officer, Photonic Science Officer, Gorn Science Officer, and Reman Medical Officer jumping into their Jem'Hadar Carrier and flying off to do missions for the new Romulan Empire. But for some players allowing a T5 Connie to be used breaks the canon in the game.
