I don't know if it's been reported yet, or if it's just me, but I did notice that I couldn't move the initial brightness setting slider when configuring STO for the first time. I was able to change it once I clicked OK and changed it in the video settings.

You did copy the installer over to your applications folder, right?

Known Issues:

  • Currently, the only way to exit the game is via the in-game options.
    • The close button on the app's window doesn't work.
  • The initial screen resolution selected by the game is lower than recommended.
    • This can be adjusted in the Video Options window.
  • Occasionally UI icons, like radio buttons, can stop drawing.
  • The introductory videos for the tutorials don't display.
    • Players can still hear Spock's mellifluous voice, however, and the rest of the VO.
  • The Bloom in some parts of the game is a bit too intense.
  • Due to hardwardware limitations of the Magic Mouse, players can not depress both the left and right mouse button at the same time.
    • This does work with the trackpad, and with other computer mice.
  • Enabling the Video option for MSAA will cause a number of graphical issues.

I managed to load up and start messing with DOFF missions in the First City on Qo'nos after several crashes. The game works for a short time but the NPCs start to slow down/skip around me and then it inevitably freezes.

Mac Pro 3,1
AMD Radeon HD 7770 1Gb

I usually run STO in Bootcamp on the same machine and it works beautifully there. STO is the only reason I boot into Windows ever, so I'm looking forward to the Mac client stabilizing. Thanks for undertaking this, Cryptic!

We're still running around chasing down a bunch of last-minute little issues here and there. Embarrasingly, there are even a few things that work in WINE, but not the official port! :X
That's okay. You can't make an omelette without breaking a few eggs.

Me too, and the rest of this message is to have 10 charactors

I patched and launched the game all right, then when the game window popped up the log in window didn't close on itself as it does on PC, but everything on the panel became unclickable.
I tried different ways to close it manually, no good. Two STO icons stand on my mac dock side by side.

Then I log in the game and was required to put in the one time code. I changed the game panel from full screen to window and then switched to internet browser and got the code, but then when I tried to switch back to the game I simply couldn't. Nothing comes up when I click on the game icon, where is supposed to be the game window is a blank. The icon on the dock can not bring up anything and can not be removed from the dock. I tried to relaunch the game window but as I mentioned it didn't work.

So I can't enter the game or quit the game. The only way to solve the problem is shutting down the mac book.

you can force quit rather than force restart.

I noticed the file size is only 6GB, the wine version is about 15GB. Why the size difference?
