The current F2P (Holodeck) version of Star Trek Online.
Everything tested works, minor defects in visuals could be the fault of the game itself.
The graphics at some points my rifle was invisible or the ground was textured incorrectly. However this could be due to my low budget ATI Radeon HD 5450 1 GB card.
I was able to play several hours with no crashes or disconnects.
What does not
What was not tested
This older installer was used.
Launcher Version: CL_2014_12_15_18_53
This was installed without the ARC launcher. While PWE has forced most of the games into using ARC, Cryptic has 3 games that run without the ARC. Star Trek Online, Champions Online, and Neverwinter D&D Online are still playable without ARC. Finding the correct installer is a bit of a chore. Some are maintained by older sites like Cnet and some links to these older launchers can be found in the game forums themselves. The older launcher must be allowed to install the game in its entirety before you play. No changes or tweaks were made to the wine prefix. My system:Intel Duel E2200 CPU, 2GB RAM, Xorg Gallium 0.4 on AMD Cedar, 3.0 Mesa 10.1.3

ÂThis game requires IE7+ to be installed for the Launcher to function.
chmod +x winetricksÂ
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.

ÂIn 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!
