Star Trek Online: Released!

So it seems that Star Trek Online is now open to the public to play.  I got a couple emails announcing the release today.  Here's the Press Release...

STO AVAILABLE NOW

Greetings Captain!
Star Trek Online is available right now! It's your chance to seek out new life and civilizations, and embark on a personal Star Trek journey.

You now have the opportunity to visit iconic locations from the popular Star Trek fiction, reach out to unexplored star systems, and make contact with new alien species. With Episode Missions, every moment spent playing Star Trek Online feels like a new Star Trek episode in which you are the star.

Immerse yourself in the future of the Trek universe as it moves into the 25th century.

It looks like this will cost $15 a month, since sub cards are right around $30.  Also, the game itself is about 4.8gb, or if you find a place to download it, about a 3.5 gb installer.

I haven't really decided if I want to play this one, however my experience with MMO's when they are first released is buggy as all heck.  It's for this reason I won't even consider playing for the first month.  Usually they release games in a beta state and fix the bugs over the next coming weeks.  Or in some cases, as was the case of Darkfall (worst release on the planet), there is a 3-5 hour queue.  I will probably try it after a few weeks, allowing time for bug fixes and server mitigation.

If you are looking for a place to get STO Software or Subscription Cards, I recommend Amazon.com.
