1. Can I use my existing mobile account to play on Facebook Games as well as Gameroom?
Absolutely! You will need to first play Star Trek Timelines on your mobile device and reach level four to authorize the Facebook app, but after that you will be able to seamlessly shift between the mobile and desktop versions of the game. Instructions on linking accounts are available on Facebook Games. Your currency, crew, progress, and everything else will be with you no matter where you log on.
2. Do you need a Facebook account to access Facebook Gameroom?
Yes - but since Gameroom is a desktop application for Windows, you will not need to log on to your Facebook account through your browser to access the game. Just open the Gameroom desktop application.
3. Do I need to use my existing STAR TREK TIMELINES account or can I start over with a new account?
Although you can start over with a new account, if you do so, you won’t be able to go back and link your existing account to Facebook.
4. What if something I bought on the App Store or Google Play does not appear on Facebook?
As always, if something in the game is not working the way it is supposed to, please open a ticket with our Player Support team.
5. Will anything be different about the game?
Depending on your home computer, you may see some differences in graphics between the Facebook Games version, the Gameroom version, and the mobile version.

Otherwise, all events, challenges or other in-world things to do will be the same from one version to another.

14. It seems like it takes longer to load on Facebook Games than it does on my mobile device.
Different devices, platforms, and browsers have different load times. Also, STAR TREK TIMELINES uses high-resolution graphics to make the most immersive gameplay possible. As a result, some players may experience different load times. We are always working on improvements to gameplay and performance, however, and we hope to reduce load times for most players in the future.
