Yeah, I was lucky. Well, vigilant is more apt. I had the launch window open, and was talking to the folks on the STO forum. The moment someone said "we're green!" I was off like a shot. I barely got in, though. The mission is fun, and you get some great views of the old girl before she's finally yours.
I'll get on later to have fun with her, but right now the servers are packed, and lag is obscene, so good luck to all of you!
