The current F2P (Holodeck) version of Star Trek Online.
Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)
Everything seemingly works in-game on the lower part of the settings. I would start on the lowest possible settings and work up (there is a slider in game)
What does not
Some of the things in the launcher may be glitchy but nothing show-stopping.
Performance is still quite poor.
What was not tested
All aspects of the launcher were not tested. The download settings and game launch work fine.
I couldn't get it to run for a long time. It would just time out or freeze on the loading screen.
However, I changed the IE boot from
Native, then built in
To built in, then native.
Others had to wait 40 minutes for the loading screen to finish.
If walking forward causes your character to roll you will need to enable a work around in the console before playing the game and once finished disable the work around. This is a bug in X that has been fixed so newer distributions will not have this issue.
xset r off
xset r on
In general you will want to play STO using the low graphics option in the profile selector that comes up when the game loads. If you have very recent hardware you will be able to play using the higher graphics option.
Any other bugs you find should be reported!
When reporting your test results, pleases post on which server (Holodeck, Tribble) you've played.

Unable to Launch Game

It installs, goes through Arc, and the Star Trek Launcher perfectly.
However, I am stuck on the "Star Trek Online, Legacy of Romulus" "Loading..." screen.
It does not progress past this. I even sat here for 15 minutes but nothing happened.

I'm surprised nobody has commented on this yet. The game slowly becomes more laggy until you can no longer play the game and have to exit entirely and restart. Am I the only one getting this. Does anyone know the cause or a workaround?
Ubuntu 12.04 (PlayonLinux)
All Wine versions
I can play 2-3 STFs basically and the game is unplayable. I'm lucky to get that much. It starts out great though when first loaded.
Legacy of Romulas works with Linux!!!!!

Using kubuntu rareing ringtail, playonlinux latesst veersion (I cant bring it up while STO is running to check the version) and wine 1.5.18.
It took about 15 minutes to get to character selection. Not bad for the third day after the LOR expansion launched.
Finally got working with Playonlinix

I finally got it working using playonlinux. Colors are bad too much green and mostly washed out video. I'll try installing xorg-edgers xcrack since I am using an Intel 45 GMA and the Ubuntu Intel open source driver doesn’t work correctly with that chip
