^You can pay to remove the EC cap. IIRC it costs 400 Zen.
where do I do that? cause i'll do it, its really risky buying ship modules.
Harvey, another way to make easy credits, just do random encounter missions in sector space, you can pile up loads of consoles and stuff that you can sell, I know as a lt even lt.cmdr I made loads of dosh by taking Klingons down in Sirius sector space, one near starbase 24 is my favorite.
U can literally make tons out there, it can be boring doing that all day, but doing it few times a day to make credits isn't bad.
Higher the rank, better the consoles and leftovers.
