It's a little amusing, but I keep seeing all these rage posts on the STO Facebook updates about the queues. People are listing queue positions in the tens of thousands.
This morning, I had twenty minutes to kill before leaving for work, so I figured I'd see if the game servers were up. I got in with no wait, and played the first couple missions on Virinat. Logged out and caught the bus.
My timing must have been perfect.
