If you cannot use the items you are suppose to get as a bonus in headstart then promoting the enhanced version is false advertising period. Since you cannot use any items you could just preorder your regular game and after headstart you would have most of the items listed. I am aready a LT6 will make LT Commander today so I no longer need the bonus cruiser or the special shield since i will havea better one by then.

So,I like a lot of other preorder customers feel ripped off,and like I paid $20 extera for a freaking regular game.

I'm assuming "They" is cryptic...which is a mute point because the retailers don't mention it.

If I buy an item with headstart access and certain bonuses...I shouldn't have to be checking on forums to see whether or not I get the bonuses included in my preorder at a later date.

That's like buying a car that includes free A/C but once you've bought the car and brought it home you find out the A/C won't be installed for a few weeks and had you called the manufacturer you would have known about it...but the person who sold you the car itself elected not to mention it at all...but thanks for the money anyways...and hey, the A/C is free so quit whining about it.

It's only a few days so not a big deal for me as far as an inconvenience factor...it is however an incredibly poor business call and as far as I'm concerned misleadling sales information. I'm sure there's many more who feel the same way.

I look for them at the main site and no it was not on the news section.

I will ***** I will complain, its my right to. I purchased the game, I was told I could make a joined trill and so much more. so i do not give a **** how cryptic plans to get everyone the joined trill as long as they do, I do not want to make a alt, i do not want to make a Klingon... I want to make a Joined trill as my main character and my only character. I played the beta tested the game gave my reports and feedback as excepted from a beta TESTER, but now its live the game is final and it is released if its not then how are so many people on right now playing? beta is over.

I ordered the Deluxe version for the extra stuff, the extra stuff to advance in the game before others do, that is what a Head start is. now I have to recreate a character after Feb, 2 and I will be behind other folks, so the head start is a ****ing joke.

Yeah i am ****ed, yeah I am complaining and if you do not like it then stop reading this post and play the damn game. I for one will stand my ground and will complain to either resolve this or just to say **** cryptic for good, I gave them way to many chances on their other failed games.


I am Tired of mmo's coming out and not giving you what they said they would. this happens to many times and all the ones that do that end up loosing that mmo. so its up to cryptic to make this the one for them or to fail.

I said what i wanted to say, Now its your turn Cryptic what do you have to say for your self?
How do they know you bought the Deluxe version? I'm not saying you didn't but wheres your proof, they is why we can't play as joined trill, I was a Beta tester and knew the whole time I wasn't going to have my joined trill, I have no problem, my Trill is going to be my main char, and an escort cap, I am making an alt char for a crusier class.

A: Once you’ve added your retail key to your account, the costume pieces and Trill are unlocked for you during character creation.

Q: Can I "install" my exclusive Trill symbiote after I create a different character?

A: No. Trill is a species option players can choose during character creation, not a symbiote they can implant into an existing character after character creation.
That has been up on the MAIN PAGE before OB and the pre-order retail page and pre-order faq page was announced in the news. There was no change this was always the way they said it would be.

Proof would be in the CD KEY they were issued in the version they purchased.

We have people who think they can get around the system by:
  • Buying the pre-order from ShopA, getting the POKey, applying the POKey to their account, and then cancelling the pre-order.
  • Then they move to ShopB and do the same.
  • Then they move to ShopC and do the same.
  • Until they have ALL POKeys applied.
To curb this activity, Cryptic has wisely made it so you have to activate your paid for account key before you get the POReward(s).

Unfortunately, becasue of the few bad people out there, everyone else has to wait for their paid for account key to activate their PORewards.

No one has purchased a copy of STO except D2D customers like me. Everyone else has pre-ordered and could cancel at any moment before release.

I decided to simply pass on head start all togeather and just wait for my hard coppy (need it anyway as my beta version of the game got screwed up by some kind of bug and I needed to re-download the game. Rather than do that, I opted to just quit beta and wait for my hard coppy.)

Dosn't matter anyway as I have enough reading from anthropology to keep me busy until the 2nd.

why do all of you assume i got this game and be getting a box? I ordered it online as a digital copies and that is how i got the beta key and retail key, they both are assigned to my account and purchase,
