The current F2P (Holodeck) version of Star Trek Online.
Most all game play, including Ground, Space, Red-Alerts, Missions, and Advanced Encounters.
Keyboard input works great, both in First-Person and Third-Person, and inside the chat menu.
Ground interaction works flawlessly with both mouse and keyboard input.
What does not
There are some minor graphical issues including, but not limited to, hair (Hair works maybe 33% of the time), various outfits and uniforms (They simple do not remember and the area around the texture is blurred and distorted), and certain planets appear as giant masses with elongated and jagged edges.
There is a glitch that causes the client to hard quit to Desktop when first adding points to skills and abilities. After logging back in, things work fine.
Every now and then on zoning, the sound quits completely. Exiting to Desktop and Logging in again brings the sound back to normal.
What was not tested
I installed the game in a fresh, native x64 WINE environment, without installing any extra addons, with the exception of Core Fonts. The initial install was done under 2.15 and testing continued on through 2.16 and now 2.17. The sound issue above did not occur until 2.17, but it's not really an issue for me as it occurs rarely, but enough that it should be mentioned.The game itself is notorious for having banding issues in Windows, regardless of your connection speed, or PC setup. There is still some banding, but it presents as "time skips" in WINE instead of the slowing pull that occurs in Windows.

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!
