Hello,

We are aware of the issue and are looking into it. We do not have an ETA for when this may be resolved.

When attempting to play online in Multi-Player mode, i receive "Error Cannot Connect to the WON Server." This has been going on for a couple of weeks. Can you assist?

One day they'll just shut it down and say "We won't support this 36 yr old game anymore." And they'll do it through the virtual reality network system implanted in our brain :p
I am always in need of help.

@Thun - yeah, that just might happen. Unfortunately, they still won't have flying cars by then. :lol:

No, the dang thing is broken again. Go to Activision.com and open a trouble ticket. I have one open and everyone that does will make them work a lot faster to fix the problem.

Hi,

At this point I do not expect the WON servers to resume operation.

Customer - 02/05/2008 01:03 PM
I appreciate any help you can give. A few weeks ago, the server was down completely. Someone on your staff found someone because it came up and worked for a week before it started asking for this patch.

Response (Kirk McNesby) - 02/04/2008 05:03 PM
Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to contact us here at Activision.

The controlling company for the WON servers has changed hands several times since the WON servers fell out of popular usage. I will look into this issue as best I can, but at this point the game is nearly 8 years old and finding someone here who has an active contact with the people that administer the servers is going to be difficult.

Please note that Activision has had very little involvement in the Star Trek franchise games since the Paramount lawsuit a few years ago (2003 if I recall properly).

Customer - 02/03/2008 07:33 PM
When playing online, the game states that a patch is needed in order to play on WON. I am running the latest patch (1.2) and have even tried installing a fresh installation of the game. Can you please help. I'm not the only person. I know of at least 8 others with the problem.

A few days ago, the WON server was back up and I was able to play online with others. It is back down though. When I get to the lobby (not able to get that far previously) it says they are experiencing technical difficulties. Alien involvement is not ruled out. I'm not sure if this means they are fixing it or if its gonna be down for good. I'm hopeful but patient. I'll let you guys know if I know anything else.
