STO Open Beta Poll

Here I sit, 10 hours into the Star Trek Online open beta client download and about 40% complete.  Come on FilePlanet download manager!

That has given me some time to go look at other posts about open beta.  Some are quite good and provide valuable information or perspectives.  And some are… a bit tedious.

So, in absence of anything else to post at the moment, I thought I would do a poll.

I also figured out how to resolve that “poll doesn’t wrap long answers” issue I was having.  Go me.  Of course, I got word wrapping to work, but now it forces me to use the default poll style.  How like life.

Now back to downloading.

STO – Pre-Order Key in Hand

Gamestop obliged me this afternoon with an email that contained my pre-order game key so I can get in the Star Trek Online open beta, which begins tomorrow if things go as planned.

Of course, the next trick will be downloading the game client, which weighs in at around 7GB if I read the forums correctly.

Not that I will have much time to actually play in the open beta for the next week or so, but I’d like to get it set up so that when I do have time, I can give it a try.

Addendum: Ah, they put up a page about the open beta.  It looks like my subscription to FilePlanet will pay off again.
