Any chance you could elaborate on that? Saying the patch is for "Server Stability Issues" is like saying "There are races besides the Founding Four in the Federation"; it's completely true, but it gives us no real information.
Well, it's 16:38 here and I can't log in - server timed out.
I guess it's taking longer than they expected.
That's because the server is still down. You can see it on the STO homepage.
The servers are in Pacific Time Zone (GMT-8), so when they say 7 to 9, they mean 7 to 9 Pacific, 10 to 12 Eastern (GMT-5), 3 to 5 GMT. That's why the first post has a "View It In Your Time Zone" link, so we can check that.
Personally, I have an extra clock on my computer set to GMT-8 for the sole purpose of having a quick reference for STO's downtime.
