Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)
I just discovered that a relatively painless way to get a full set of blue/purple items for my ship and crew is to spend 2 hours in a star cluster solely scanning every anomaly I can find.
At commander level, I think I can craft a full set of purples with about 1000 research materials of various types and 5000 dilithium.
Welcome to crafting...
I am curious to know how that works out for you at higher levels, since the dilithium cost will rise significantly for even numered items.
Spoiler me one more time! I dare ya! I double dare ya!
