    I recently tried out STO, after playing EVE for about a year, and needing something new to relax with.

    I was lucky and got a 5day passcode, and have decided to subscribe before it runs out, my question is however, do I need to buy the retail box from my local store, or can I subscribe on their site and run with that?

    Also if I do buy the retail box from the store, can I simply carry on my existing account with the retail key? as I've got a decent rank, and quite a few unusual modules on their which took some work obtaining.

    IIR, if you already have it installed, go to the STO website, log in and enter the retail key fron the box or Steam (or special bonus unlock keys*) on the Activate Key page:
    http://www.startrekonline.com/activate


    Otherwise, there's a list of retailers on the STO site that include Cryptic and Steam:

    Thanks, so it does look like I will have to buy the box set from town tomorrow.

    Repped for the Kahn uniforms!

    Have to warn you. STO lacks depth. I'm surprised anyone who plays eve has actualy been amused long enough to get past the 5 day trial.

    I played EVE and to be honest, I'm getting more enjoyment from STO.

    In game invite sent, although I'm thinking the time difference might be an issue here. Anyhoo, STOked video podcast for anyone who hasn't seen it.

    I had been cruising around at RA3 grabbing resources for crafting, but if they're going to change it again I might just bank it until the dust settles. Currently sample prices on the exchange are insane. Actually, a lot of stuff on the exchange is ridiculously priced.
