On Klingon side, turning over confiscated contraband nets you 2k dilithium on a non-critical(!) success. Forced labor assignments net you 500 dilithium on non-crits.
Confiscated Contraband does that on the Fed side too (it the one doff mission I always look for first).

In this case I turned in a Confiscated Contraband (2000), A standard Forced Labour (500) and a critical Forced Labour (1500!) on my Orion. Two of my Fed toons also had completed Contraband missions, so it was 8000 from just 5 Doff assignments.

Special Task Force missions.

There are 3 Borg STFs split into 2 segments each. Space and Ground.
They can be accessed through the PvE queues or set up as a private instance.
They are 5 man group missions, that require extensive team work compared to all other missions in the game and are generally a lot harder to beat, some of them can be outright failed or at least produce head injuries (banging you head on your desk because of frustration if you end up with idiots playing. Idiots can be "veterans", too).

There is one old school STF you can access in the Gamma orionis sector called Terradome which can be accessed like any other mission but also requires a team to beat. It features the Undine.

Do you have to be in any specific sector for those?

Normally find Contraband missions in Sirus for Federation and Omega Leonis For Klingons. Forced Labour I've found in several sectors.

My total today has just hit 14500 and that is from Doff missions alone. I have another Contraband that should complete before the end of the day too (so I'm looking at topping 17000 just from doff missions today - Now I'm going to play some missions too )

Total from one toon, or a combination of toons? I really need to start Doffing more on my other toons.

That's across 5 toons. Today's totals ended up being:

Riku - 5385
Sh'rrth - 3970
Foxton - 3495
Lex - 3035
Zylah - 4515

Total - 20400

About 15,000 of this is from Doff missions. The rest is a combination of Academy tests, Satilite Repairs and Kerret Runs.

If I could keep that pace I'd have enough dilithium for the DS9 set in 20 days.

Incredibly stupid question, but how do you make these copies of the pictures from the game?
Assuming you have Windows, all you have to do is press the "Print Screen" button on your keyboard. It saves a copy of the image to your "C:\Users\Public\Games\Cryptic Studios\Star Trek Online\Live\Screenshots" folder.
This doesn't seem to be working. Any way you can dumb it way down for me? Or maybe there is a different way to take pictures of screens?

Press "Print Screen".
Quit game.
Open up your screenshots folder.

Alternately;

In your chat box, in-game, type: /screenshot and press Enter.
Quit Game.
Open your screenshots folder.

Open your screenshots folder.
also, if you have it through Steam like me, it's F12
and when you exit the game it'll show you the screens from your last session and you can upload them to your Steam profile or view them on your computer etc
with the default keybinds the Steam screenshot key is also the STO rearrange HUD hotkey . . . so hide the HUD with Shift+F12

You can also open Wordpad, Word or Paint (or almost any office program). When you press Print Screen, switch to the program you opened and hit Paste. This is a low tech work around. Using the screenshot folder is still your best option.

Sounds like you've got the dilithium mining down to a science. What rate are you trading it for or are you just holding it for now?
