Updated OS and DirectX requirements will be in place starting February 15, 2022. Please read the blog for more details. https://www.arcgames.com/en/games/star-trek-online/news/detail/11497603
As of today, players whose system doesn't meet the upcoming requirements for Windows 8/10 or Direct3D Feature Level 11 will be notified upon starting the game launcher. They will still be able to play under their current system until February 15, 2022 when the system changes will go live. We strongly recommend updating prior to the change.
