GameStop is still offering the Connie preorder so you should still get it.

AT least you got to play, I bought my pre-order the last day from Best Buy and when i tried to upload the code, it said it had already been used, so no pre-release play at all for me, and I'm not even sure if I get any of the exclusive items.

I did a gamestop preorder just an hour ago. I walked in and did it, they gave me a code on the spot, and I'm patching now. soon as I'm in, I'll post if I got the connie or not.

yeah, the gamestop manager said to me the code comes in or with the box (?!) and i get it when I pick it up tuesday... and I asked several times to clarify it.... we will see what happens on the second I'm pretty worried though

but the guy gave me two beta keys for the two games i ordered, a lot of good that dose

Those beta codes are what entitles you to headstart, and in combination with the retail code is what unlocks the Connie.

Using the retail code alone doesn't entitle you to the Connie, iirc. Because if it did, someone who didn't pre-order could just buy a box in a store someday that was left over from pre-orders, redeem the code, and have a Connie, even though they didn't preorder.

Yeah its been stated that all the Pre-Order bonus items/stuff you don't get til the official Launch date on the 2nd. I'm actually getting the Connie and don't particularly care about it. Think I'd rather have one of the other bonus items but Gamestop is the most convienent for me (won't get a digital download version). Only bonus available in-game currently is the lifetime subscription bonus (Borg as a race selection for players).
