Hey, Im trying to run Star Trek Online through Steam, but even with minimal graphics and rendering settings it's insanely slow. Im using a 2011 MacBook Pro, im wondering if it could be the graphics card, since mine seems to always be using the AMD Radeon HD 6490M (256 mb VRAM) instead of the Intel HD Graphics 3000 (512 mb VRAM). Anyone know if this could be my problem and if so, how can i switch the graphics cards? I've heard good stuff about gfxCardStatus, anyone else use this?

I don't know how intense that game is, as I haven' seen it. What are the reccomended and minimum specs listed on the game's store page?
