Thanks for the offer of help. I'm so burned out right now I need a break. I may not continue, especially if the game is mostly space flight. That's the only part of the game I didn't like.
I am steering with WASD which is the default setting. I don't know how to switch to the mouse. I'd think I'd be able to steer better with the mouse.
Ah, that's a pity, BB. Have you tried holding down both mouse buttons to steer? Once you get the hang of it, it's great fun. I can't access YouTube at the moment, but there must be some STO flight tutorials available.

If you're still playing, try an escort ship when you can get one. They turn on a dime but are more fragile. The most fun, though, I reckon.
Thanks for the advice. I still have enough interest to pop in this forum now and then, if nothing else I enjoy hearing about the game from you guys.
I figure if I did this badly in the tutorial then I'm probably not going to succeed in the game anyways.
I did pretty crappy at first too, but it got way easier in time. Now I can pump out missions pretty quickly. You just need to play enough and get used to it, I think.

BTW anybody hear about a supposed Gingerbread Colony for the holidays? TrekMate posted an article saying STO will have some kind of gingerbread-themed area.
