    I want Amazon AND Atari pre-order editions :/
    The automated defense system is something that I would like. I wish I could buy pre-order bonuses without having to pre-order from each and every place X)

    There's a pre-order FAQ on the website with the latest news post. They say they might offer the various pre-order items as microtransactions at some point for anyone that wants them, but it won't happen at launch.

    I'm still wondering how they've done with the transporter. If I don't see my character materialise on a planet with some cool graphics and whoosing sounds I'll be crushed.

    Of course they will. It was at the Expo, they wouldn't take that out for the game. Transporters are a part of Trek, even the new movie knew that!

    Also, D2D UK Deluxe Digital Edition

    Includes:

    Regenerative Personal Shield
    TOS Uniforms :D
    "KHAAAN!" Emote :D :D
    Klingon Blod Wine Emote
    Exclusive NX Prefix
    Automated Defense Battery
    Trill Race

    I've just bought it. I'm having that, and one boxed one. They say on the FAQ most will be available on the microtransaction store anyway, but I really want this stuff, and a disc copy. So D2D and Amazon for me.

    Right, I'm having that for the TOS uniforms alone :D

    I didn't know it was there at the expo.

    So I guess these will be provided as codes that you'll enter in - similar to CO.

    Annoying that no retail pre-order bonuses are available in Denmark.

    Wow, I was vaguely miffed I couldn't get a silly emote, never thought about those that could get nothing. What about Steam? I'd imagine the Steam bonus would be pretty universal. That's the pretty awesome looking Chromodynamic Armour, though it's not on Steam yet.

    I'm a little disappointed the armour is personal. I was hoping it'd be ship armour. Never mind, makes the bonus choice a bit easier.

    Probably couldn't balance Voyager super armour so it'd be fair early on, though I agree if it'd had been just cosmetic armour, I'd have had it in a second.

    Reading the Pre-order FAQ, it seems extras require the retail key too, so I won't have spare game codes like I hoped. I've got my headstart key from D2D on my account though, so I'll definitely be there day 1.

    How long a sub do you get with that D2D digital deluxe edition?

    Standard 1 month/30 days, as far as I can tell. Pre-order FAQ does say if, like me (and I've only just realised how strange it is to order the same game twice) you get 2 copies the months stack.

    Also, why the fuck did I pay so much just so I could go KHAN!, have the NX prefix and a defence battery? That's why I got that edition. What an idiot I am! Who to blame?

    Ah.... KHAAAAANNNNN!!!

    Tried Champions Online on it? Should be similar performance wise.

    They say they haven't decided how much the monthly sub is going to be :S

    This concerns me. How much are these things normally?

    It'll be the same as CO. No idea how much that is (buffs Lifetime Subber badge and exclusive STO uniform), but about 8.99 I reckon. That's an estimate based on common sense, not actual information. It could be they try to sqeeze Trek fans a bit more, or try to charge that little bit more like Eve does.

    If they offer a Lifetime Sub at any point though, I'm in.

    I'll have a wee lookie online to see how CO fared on a netbook. I don't hold out much hope though.

    How did you check that?

    There was a forum post on the CO site where someone asked if if would run on a netbook, and the general response was hysterical laughter.

    How did who check what? How did Fuzz check his sad face?

    EDIT: Oh I see. I can't see it running on a netbook either if I'm honest, but it could happen. In an alternate timeline.

    :D

    I've never looked forward to a game this much before! I'll even stay up on release night to play as soon as possible. Spends ages on my character, tweaking my starter ship to my own idea of perfection, fitting just the right parts, using just the right crew... and boldly going, where no Fawkes has gone before.

    I'm still on Yellow Alert I'm afraid.

    I dont want to get too excited. I've never really gotten into an MMO so this will be my first. I've tried EVE but that was too complex and boring for tiny little mind.

    For me I think what will make it awesome or average is the music and sound. If they have that nailed I'll probably play it till my eyes and ears bleed!

    Is there a free trial of Champions Online so that I can test performance on my PC and lappy?

    I intend on upgrading the PC specfically for this.

    Don't know about a trial, but there is a referral program that subscribers can use to invite folks. If you want I could sort an invite out for you.

    Do I have to pay to try?
