An official demo for the MMORPG Star Trek Online was released over the weekend, but many people had issues with the downloader (both because of the slow p2p downloads and the fact that 7.9GB is a beefy metered download).
Fortunately, Cryptic Studios, the developers of the game, are completely awesome and within minutes of us asking, sent us a downloadable version of the demo that we have been able to mirror.
If you want to live long and prosper, nab the demo now locally from AusGamers

The Klingon side was easier to play because they've introduced more PvE missions mostly exploration type which are just random generated kill this many bad guys in space or on the ground. The PvP from the Klingon side is always fun because of the cloaking so you sneak up on the Federation and blast them without much chance of return fire.

Why does a game need 8 gig if its just a demo ?
I bet its cut scenes/video.

Not that many cut scenes in the game, the 8gig is the whole game, your account is restricted to;
You can only play Federation but you can fiddle around with the character customisation for as long as you like. The Tutorial is fighting against the Borg and Stranded in Space is fighting the Orions.
You'll notice that you are grouped with what seem to be other players. These are actually AI crewmen that you also control and/or play as.
