The current F2P (Holodeck) version of Star Trek Online.
Arc Client Installs without error
What does not
Â After installing the Arc Client, I clicked on the INSTALL Button in the Library tab to install Star Trek Online, which causes an immediate crash with an error stating ArcErrRep.exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close. Â I've installed ie8, vcrun2008, and even tried installing dx9 using winetricks each time I encountered this error to no resolve. Â This crash is happening on multiple distributions as well.

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.

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!
