If you have the head start, you should be able to log on with the beta client.

Then I think you should submit a support ticket.

You might want to watch out with steam - Check what it;s doing with the game client. Apparently for some reason the Steam client decided to re-download the whole game files upon the start of the "Headstart". What it did for a LOT of Steam user's was completely wipe STO's files and re-download them - all 7.5-9 GB worth of download.. a download that was not needed.

This event apparently got triggered by trying to open the game client... Steam might have fixed that, might not have... but might explain why you click on the game launcher and nothing happens....it might be re-downloading the game files (hope your not on a limited quote plan and near your quota if you are...)

Because Steam is such an awesome company, the game is now live, but they won't be giving out retail keys for 7 hours.

Quote from the Steam's STO page:

"Available: February 2nd, 2010
This game will unlock in approximately 7 hours"

So.....apparently the game is live, but steam didn't get the memo. Have fun waiting 7 more hours for your retail code. I know I will..........never order another game from Steam again!

Here's a link to the AWESOME Steam count down page for the release of your bought and paid for retail code.

Anyone besides me wonder why there is a delay in delivering digital content???
