The head start for people who pre-ordered Star Trek Online begins at 10am Pacific time today, Friday January 29th, 2010.
That would be 1pm Eastern time and 8am Hawaiian time.
As the announcement says, it is not too late to pre-order. Everybody else has to wait until Tuesday to start playing.
There was a ~60MB patch to download this morning. We’ll see if that is all it takes to get the show on the road.
Meanwhile we’ll see if my cunning caption contest plan will keep the pre-order people busy leaving me to get a head start on them tonight. Hopefully I’ll be able to log in.
