I ran the stand alone launcher for Star Trek Online tonight. It wanted to patch 103 MB, a download of roughly half that size. That was a bit surprising as the last maintenance was done late last week and no new maintenance has been announced. I clicked on the Engage button and nothing happened. I ran the stand alone launcher again. This time it wanted to patch 9863 MB, which amounts to a download of nearly 7 GB, as measured at work. If you don’t play the game but simply close the launcher, then the whole download dance repeats when you run the launcher. If you do play the game, then I would not be surprised if the download cycle repeats the next time you run the launcher.
No Star Trek Online for me tonight, but rather “Star Trek Offline”. Better luck tomorrow, I hope.
