We will be bringing the websites down at 4PM PST in order to make some changes to increase performance. Downtime is expected to be about 15 minutes.
Players will still be able to login through the launcher at this time.
Having the same issue with both STO and Champions.
I did notice that on both when I first open the fame launcher, a ~144MB patch starts to download, then at around 10% it just skips and goes into either START or ENGAGE.
At one point I did see my Federation character, but when I tried to login it booted out to the login screen.
