Star Trek Online Demo, Welcome Back Weekend

Atari announces the launch of the promised referral and veteran rewards and programs for Star Trek Online, along with the release of the playable demo for Cryptic's Trekkie MMORPG. First off, this is a "welcome back" weekend for former players of the game. Details are here, and the welcome back event will run until 1:00 pm EDT Monday. The Veteran Rewards page outlines gifts for the game's most dedicated fans, and for vets seeking more rewards, this page has details on what you can earn for enticing your friends to join the game. Finally, this page is where to learn more about the playable demo. Word is:

  • You need a Cryptic account to play. Don't have one yet? Create one here.
  • You can play through the entire Star Trek Online Tutorial, as well as the Episode "Stranded in Space." Master your skills in space and on the ground, then rescue the S.S. Azura!
  • The Demo is restricted to the Federation faction.
  • You have unlimited play time. Play as much as you like. To access the full version of Star Trek Online, purchase the full game from any of these fine retailers.

yeah downloader is hideous - and really missing a pause button. I'm getting less than a tenth of my avaliable speed but it's pushing my ping up in everything else from 100ms to ~800ms.

LOTRO always was and always will be a WoW wannabe - everything from the icons to the bags looks like wow. It just plays a lot worse with no real feel that your using anything except auto attack.
