Alienware is currently running an STO promotion with Cryptic that allows you to grab 10 days Gold, an NX class Enterprise ship, the Enterprise uniform from the newer series, and an 8 hour XP boost. It's cool looking stuff, plus you get a free ship that stacks with the free character slot you get at that level, so you can get one extra ship in all and save that slot for a second admiral ship if you wanted. I recommend folks who haven't played it yet to give it a try, the endgame may not be much but it's fun to play with friends up to level 50.

I really want that, I have an abnormal love of Star Trek: Enterprise but I cant log in. I made an account and it wont let me sign in, I made two others and its the same :( If anyone feels really nice and wants to grab a code for me that would be really nice.

EDIT: I got a key, I had a friend do it and he got his account correct, I made 3 seperate ones and none of them worked lol

Yeah, same here. I'd love a key. Not letting me log in either.

I really can't get past the interface in this game. It's ugly, it feels super dated, and it feels very "in my way." It continues to reaffirm my belief that Cryptic cannot design MMO interfaces. Is there any way around this? I really want to like this game.

You can customize the UI under the ESC menu, though it's limited to repositioning of all the HUD windows as well as resizing everything.

C store. Its under ships. ITS LITERARY a replacement for the starting ship.  
 
To get it 
 Be in game. Go to C store. Then ships. And there it is at the top. After that go to the near by star base and go to the shipyard. Go to the person to change ships.
