How to connect to STO (Cryptic Studios: Star Trek Online) - XMPP (Jabber) Services via !BitlBee

Cryptic has provided experimental support for Gold members (Lifetime Subscribers, or "LTS") allowing connections to in game channels using XMPP.

To connect, you will need a lifetime subscription to Star Trek Online. Secondly, you'll need the libpurple branch of BitlBee


  • crypticstudios.com
  • jabber
    • Port: 5222


  • STO uses one of two variants to log in. Either:
    • E-Mail Adresses
    • Account number (usually in the format of '#1#123456789' as an example)

It's recommended if one method doesn't work for you, try the other.

Here is a typical add-line for the email account method (note, the '@' in the email address is replaced with a \40 escape sequence):

  • account add jabber "name\40domain.com@crypticspace.com" your-password-here

  • The "'s as shown above are mandatory

Here is an add-line using an account number:

  • account add jabber "#1#123456789@crypticspace.com" your-password-here

  • The "'s as shown above are mandatory

Once the account has been added you will need to configure the server variable (e.g.):

  • account "exact-email-or-account-number-string-above" set connect_server crypticspace.com

This is enough to get connected. You should be able to command:

  • account on <-- this will enable all accounts you've configured


At this point you may want to use custom chat channels. The difference here is you will connect to server: "channels.crypticspace.com" Here is an example add-line:

  • chat add jabber "My\\20Channel@channels.crypticspace.com" #My_Channel

  • (At this point, you may have noticed the \\20, this is a space)
  • You can search the web for web escape codes which will help you with any other special characters you might need.

Live Long and Prosper,
