Any difference or problems switching to the Steam version?
I bought the game when it was released and still have it installed. Is there any benefit to uninstalling and using the Steam version? Do the achievements work? Also I have the lifetime membership option.

There are no steam achievements, the only difference is having links at the side and the news feed. You will still have to patch up though, so if your install is up to date then stick with it and just add it as a non steam game.

Thanks for the info!

Actually adding a game as a nonsteam game doesn't give you all the benefits of the steam version. Hours don't count, and such. Also if you you use the steam wallet to buy zen in game so it's much easier to make purchases when you need to.

Yep, go with Steam. Easier to find other Steam users too. Plus when you buy things like the starter pack, you won't right-click on the non-Steam STO shortcut and think you got cheated and start ranting like on the forums.

Starter pack? I'm already a Lifer. I'd probably just uninstall then download the STO free on Steam (if it's available for free). I might do it later, no need to try downloading it right now when the whole nation is going to be pulling from the Steam servers this week. lol.

Don't need to. You can buy the Starter Pack via Steam. You'll get a CD key which you then redeem at the usual STO@PWE website (instructions at the bottom of the store page). The linkage is not automatic, you have to log in to your account at PWE and redeem the key. I believe the exception is if you have used Steam Wallet to buy CP/Zen, in which case the linkage has been done. Still need to redeem the key manually though.

The benefits of using the Steam version is it allows Steam to show you statistics informing you that you need to stop playing STO so much and it puts you inside the 'Steam Community', i.e. so your friends can see that you are playing STO too much.

It will not... keep STO updated. There are no achievements... and you are not limited to having just one STO on your PC. You can have the 'normal' one... and Steam. Why you would want to double the amount of HDD space wasted... but you could if you wanted to.

Buying Zen via the steam wallet... well you don't get the freebies plus discount plus occasional sales.
