I ordered from Steam and downloaded the 10GB they wanted me to get. I then downloaded the update from Steam(which took a while) and launched the client.
Now I have the launcher 'patching'. I don't know whether it's downloading a metric ton of bits, or just very, very slowly checking file integrity and downloading lots of small patches as well.

I've linked a picture, just in case that helps. It's taken 2 hours or so(from Steam finishing everything it had to offer and launching the client) to reach this point.

Any ideas?

Press X in the launcher and look at the patching root folder in the top-right. Is it the correct path (somewhere inside steamapps)?

According to 7's Resource Monitor, Star Trek Online.exe is chugging down the data as fast as it can get it.
I can appreciate there being additional patches, but I didn't expect another 5GB+ after all the Steam data and updates.
Is this really the case?

It seems to have generated a completely new folder on the desktop called Cryptic Studios which contains subfolders with a bunch of new files.
How do I get it to point at the Steam location instead and stop downloading?

And now naturally, having closed it to check, it's started from scratch again.

Look at the registry key HKCU\Software\Cryptic\Star Trek Online : InstallLocation. Fix that to match the install folder inside steamapps.

Thanks very much.
All sorted and now downloading a much smaller patch.

It still wants to download the 10 GB patch for me.
I've set the path to:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\star trek online"
also tried:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\Star Trek Online"

In:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\Star Trek Online\Live\piggs"
and
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\star trek online\Star Trek Online\Live\piggs"

I wonder how that could happen.

Ok, something VERY very strange is going on now:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\star trek online\Star Trek Online\Live\piggs\Star Trek Online\Live\piggs"

just appeared.
