I'm only at level 8 right now.

I'm still trying to figure out what version I want to buy. I'm a sucker for CEs, but there are so many different exclusives.

I went with Amazon because I figured the borg officer would be the most useful for a while. Though the starship from gamestop was tempting too.

Calls this what you may, but I would say that Blacks actually benefited from the slavery. Comparing the current lives of many African Americans to Africans, one can see that the former live in much better conditions with greater freedoms and opportunities.

Amazon should email you within a day or two. I had pre-ordered for several months prior so I got my code the day before open beta.

Yeah, that Borg officer is really tempting. And I don't care too much about the starship since I'll get one at level 11.

Quick edit, if I ordered from Amazon, are they going to send me a code for the head start stuff, or does it come in the box?

Your beta key gets you into head start. It also lasts you for a little while after the game comes out. Cryptic setup the keys with a grace period after release, so if you don't get your box on the day the game comes out you're not locked out of playing.

If anyone needs a del-taco code for the "bird of prey" cup, I got an extra. Send me a PM, first PM gets it.

have a question about the sto forums themselves. Just out of curiosity, when u look at a user's profile on the forums, right next to it where it indicates either online/offline (in a small black box) does that indicate the user being online atm for the forums, inside the actual game, or both?

I'm checking out the beta and new to this MMORPG stuff, I'm not sure what to make of all of it. I am thinking not so much worth the 15 a month and I'm a die hard trekkie...I feel ashamed

Well, play more. It takes a while to get used to, and the missions get better farther in.

Welcome to the lifetime club, Jp!!!!

I'm very tempted to get the lifetime subscription after playing this beta.

I'll actually probably get the CE at Target, I work there, so I get a 10% discount, plus I have a $5 off coupon, and some gift cards.

I'm going to go ahead and get the lifetime sub after I get my code from amazon, I'm enjoying it a lot and have had to take forced timeouts so I can get some other stuff done during the day.:)

I never really got into MMO's but I am enjoying this, maybe because i sit around and quote Pricard as i maneuver my ship in the space battles.

The space battles are so fun! I enjoy the fast action, arcade-y controls, and tactical strategy you can employ. I think I'm pretty comfortable with my decision to go lifetime now.

I knew I shouldn't have started on the beta because now I'm hooked. I've been avoiding MMOs since SWG but I think this one's got me for a lifetime sub. Now I just gotta decide between the Amazon Borg crew member or all the Direct2Drive extras at a higher cost and with no physical package. Have we found a majority favorite on here yet?

I almost went w/Amazon, but it's going to take too long to get the game (I can't get Release Date delivery where I live)--plus they never got back to me about the pre-order codes for beta access (needed to pre-purchase the lifetime sub promo). Went with Steam's Digital Deluxe and happy so far. Lots of nice items for $20 less. Got code in a few minutes.

In the beta.. Liking it a lot, got a lifetime subscription.. The ability to make a goblin captain and crew helped me a lot with that decision!

I'm doing a hold on codes for now. Got a few more PMs and I need to clear through those before I do any more. Also, having a bit of a family emergency at the moment, so everyone who PM'd me: have a little bit of patience for me.

Thanks!

Also: now you all are making me doubt the Collector's Edition. It seems the only "in game" items worth anything are…

Amazon's Collector's Pre-Order
Borg Officer (STO site says "These special Officers are not customizable.", does that mean no armor, shield, weapons or anything? or just no visual customizations?)
Costumes
Red Matter Capacitor

Whereas the Steam Deluxe Edition Pre-Order has
Joined Trill
Registry Prefix
Costumes
Automated Defense Battery
Chromodynamic Armor
Emotes

For $20 less. So I'm thinking I may just go with the steam pre-order. Even though the nice art stuff, badge, and physical copy are alluring. Thoughts?

Agree with you Matt. CE version isn't worth it compared to digital deluxe.

Has anyone used the xbox 360 controller yet? I played beta 5 hours just to make sure I'd like everything. I'm a happy camper, purchased my lifetime already. I also went /w amazon (I love prime) for the $10 gift card (towards video games). I have always done CE's in the past for MMO's and have 9 out of 10 times been disappointed. This time, I'm just going to go standard.

I thought about trying the 360 controller but wasn't sure if it was compatible and I couldn't see being able to do everything needed for the game off of the controller.

If you haven't seen it, I recommend Giant Bomb's coverage of STO. They have a bunch of videos posted. They're full of hilarious commentary, it's like a podcast combined with gameplay.

I bought a G13 for this. It works really well with the game, and it makes combat more manageable.
