Since the headstart opened, I've been experiencing extended time on loading screens. When it first switches to "Loading" it doesn't move for about 30-60 seconds, then instantly loads everything up. Sometimes it will load instantly without this problem, sometimes I'll get D/C, and sometimes i wait, and wait.

Last night my loading times were unbelievably long. It's taking me up to 5 minutes to load a screen.


And just now I was kicked off while loading the last part of the "Escort the 'Ambassador' to PJem. This is annoying.

I'm having this too. And it seems to be really random as well, so i don't think it has anything to do with the loading of game content. Sometimes it takes seconds, sometimes it can take up to 10 minutes to load the same area. But mostly it just hangs there, and keeps hanging. For me this game is unplayable at this moment. I was much happier with closed and open beta. Since the head-start, i have had nothing but trouble... If these problems persist after february 2nd, i have no choice and have to give it a much lower score on the review than I had originally intended. At this time, STO is unplayable. period.

indeed an issue to be reviewed by the devs. Any chance we could have a reply from them? Also an option to skip cutscenes once you have done it once would be great.

You could file it with the devs, but I'm sure the devs are aware. But filing problems is what the beta was for. Issues like this should be resolved before the game goes live. My guess is STO is behind shedule on development, or at least has encountered more issues than expected, but they decided not to postphone the release, which led to tons of frustrated, paying customers, and eventually will lead to bad review scores. Ah well, i'll still be very forgiving if most issues that render this game unplayable are resolved on february 2nd. It's improbable, but not impossible...

"loading" appears, and looks like the game is frozen (I can alt-tab to my PC fine)... It takes many minutes, then it loads...

# 10 still loading...

good thing for forums... while the screen loads. Really, we're talking way too long... something's not right.

I just noticed the loading bar did move though... ever so slowly though. It's now been 3 minutes since I "warped" to another sector, and still waiting.
