Its a topic that many people have been searching for an answer too for many months now - if I am in the UK, where can I pre-order Star Trek Online ?

There are actually quite a few places that have it available for pre-order at the moment, so here is a list of who has it for pre-order and for how much.  List for Germany and France will be coming as soon as they can be completed.

NOTE: You must view this article via the website to see the following links

HMV UK - Star Trek Online - £17.99 - Click Here
GAME UK - Star Trek Online - £29.99 - Click Here
PLAY.COM (UK) - Star Trek Online - £24.99 - Click Here

PLAY.COM (UK) - Star Trek Online: Enhanced Silver Edition - £39.99 - Click Here - Special Features: T-Shirt, Pack of 5 Collector Cards, Star Trek Universe Map, Bonus DLC Postcard with unique number, Open BETA access, live game Headstart and in-game Bonus Skills Points.

BLOCKBUSTER UK - Star Trek Online - £34.99 - Click Here
AMAZON UK - Star Trek Online (Special Edition) - £17.99 - Click Here

AMAZON UK - Star Trek Online: Collectors Edition - REMOVED FROM AMAZON UK

Direct2Drive - Star Trek Online: Digital Deluxe Edition - £44.95 - Click Here - Special Features: Open Beta Access and Headstart Preorder Bonus, In Game Personal Shield, Original Star Trek Uniforms (In Game), Exclusive "Khhhaannn" Emote, Exclusive Klingon Blood Wine Toast Emote, Unique Registry Prefix (NX),  Unique Ship Item (Automated Defense Battery), The ability to play as a “Joined Trill” – a symbiote that grants you several lifetimes of experience.

Here is  the kicker - almost none of these stores are providing ANY information about what individual perks they are offering, however, we are 99.99% sure that there will be store specific perks - we say this because when Champions Online (Cryptic Studio's other game) was available for pre-order, about two weeks before the game shipped, the individual websites were updated with information about what items you will get.

We here at Hailing Frequency HAVE sent of e-mails to ALL of the above stores asking what unique items will be available with each purchase, and as soon as we get responses, this page will be updated.

Can you add Australia to the list as well? I have emailed Namco Bandai Aus and got a coming soon response. I reckon it will be same for Aus, that details won't come out until right before the release.
That's all there is at the moment. Very pitiful :(

 Thanks for the list Zach. Some of my Fleet mates will be happy to browse that list.
 What surprises me though is the disparity in prices between some of those companies. £17.99 up to £34.99?? Is £17.00 that much of a shipping add on for some of them? Or just a bit of greed on the respective companies part?

I'm in UK and definitely want to Pre-Order, and after a long consideration Direct2Drive is looking rather well indeed. though I am a bit unsettled with the fact that there will be no disc, I do love having a disc...
