You don't get credits for doing mission (remember you're in Starfleet, you don't get paid! ), well except for PvP for some reason.
But you can sell any loot you find on your missions if you dont need it yourself.
You can either throw it into your replicator which reduces the price significantly, sell it at a base vendor which gives you half of what you would pay if you buy it there or you try out the exchange where other players will pay you. Sometimes you get something there you want for a bargain, but more often than not it's way overpriced. Rare and useful items go for millions sometimes.
Another good way to get credits is to craft rare stuff and sell on the exchange for reasonable prices. I can get a nice amount of credits for sell a lot of blue rarity items for like 20,000 each.
Ironically you can almost make more credits by selling the data samples than the crafted items.
Nothing like exploiting other people's laziness for profit. Then again, I've been sitting on over half a mil for over a month, so it's not like I've been on a spending spree, either.

Welcome to the game, the only game ever that kept me occupied for more than a year so far and no end on the horizon.
It`s a great experience always renewing and bettering itself.
It`s great soloing it but becomes awesome as a community thing.
You find you have a lot of people here with experience who can answer your questions and are generalyl helpful.
Is it supposed to be a long time before you can upgrade your ship? I've done a number of missions now and don't seem to have any credits.

It's weird because last night I changed the look of my ship and it didn't charge me. Today when I log on, the ship doesn't look the same and then I don't have enough credits to change the look of the ship.
Is it possible you changed the look, and didn't press 'ok' ? (FYI, pressing 'Save' save's the look you made to a file on your Hard Drive that you can load back in if you like, but changes aren't permanently made to your ship until you click ok.

You get Experience, Skillpoints, Merits, and usually a reward for most story missions. That said, be sure to SPEND your acquired Skill Points on skill for your character, or you won't advance in Rank.

The best way to get credits is seel the items and consoles you don't need/use on the Exchange, or back to the NPC vendors (or your ship's replicator). you get the most EC for selling to the Earth Spacedock vndor NPCs though.

Re: Star Trek: Online

My advice:

For things where the sellback price is 4 figures or less, replicator it unless you were going back to ESD anyway. For five figures or more, hang on to it. The time you spend going back is time you could have spent getting more loot, so just replicator the trash unless you were going there.

I recently discovered just how addictive Dabo can be. I spent an hour the other day spending my EC's playing Dabo over on Drozona station.

I think I'm going to have to start work on a tribble breeding calculator. Didn't get the one I expected last night...

Yep. I have access to all this stuff, but I want something that I can just stick the name of the Tribble I want to breed into and get out the Tribbles I can breed it from and which food I need to use.

Of course last nights offspring could be the result of a random mutation, which happens now and again.

It'd be cool to have a Tribble-breeding calculator, but I've yet to find one. Besides, with all the possible combinations of Tribble+food, using it would only tell you what each combination would produce, rather than whether or not it's the one you want.

Honestly, this chart's as good as anything for reference - just alt-tab out of the game when you want to check it:

(Just out of curiosity, which Tribble/food did you use, what did you get, and what were you expecting?)

Re: Star Trek: Online

In all honesty it's a good MMO and as a Star Trek Fan I cant get enough of it.

It's abit limiting with the current level cap of Vice Admiral but once it's increased it will be great.

I don't want to put people off STO, the game is fantastic but the STO forum and Moderators are not!

The Forum is full of praise and amazing helpful info like any forum yet once you voice your opinion against cryptic, be prepared to be silenced by their moderators.

If you complain about anything to do with STO or CRYPTIC your post will be edited by THEM, if you post something that in anway puts cryptic in a bad light they will edit your posting to suit THEM.

For example I posted a thread about the insanly large patches that take hours if not days to download ( no joke, many people have this issue with STO) and as a PAYING CUSTOMER I thought it was insane. I also voiced my opinion that Cryptic were focusing on Money Making aspects of the game such as c-store items which is a store that you can buy items with using Atari Credits which are bought using real money.. I dont have anything against that but when the majority of LARGE patches rolled out only adds items that are available on the C-store and not actually any creative content such as new explorable planets,systems and etc... it will peeve some if not most...okay yes they did roll out a new series (weekly missions - 1 new mission a week), yet the majority of common issues such as server connection errors and etc.. have gone unfixed. For this I got a warning and had the entire post which had several hundred words down to a few sentences...

their explanation was : Mildly Obscene/Vulgar/Inappropriate Objectionable Material.

Yet their are threads that are tasteless in content such as name inappropriately named ships which does not leave much to the imagination, and they dont edit or filter those threads.

I know STO is only over a year old and content will only improve but when paying customers are silenced and not even allowed to voice their concerns is in my view a good way to loose and disappoint people. THE STO OFFICIAL FORUM IS A POLICE STATE.

Just me expressing the freedom of free speach!

BUT HONESTLY THE GAME IS SUPERB!..the game...

Hm to be honest, as far as I know, the people doing the C-Store stuff are different people than the ones bringing in new content.
So while it feels that they are focussing more on releasing paid extra content those guys just have smaller tasks to accomplish and can finish their updates quicker.
Never forget STO purpose is making money, so of course that stuff gets extra people.
On the plus side nearly every C-Store item enhances the immersiveness of the game immensely...

Re: Star Trek: Online

I'm patching the client now . . . so the demo has unlimited play time, but limited game content? that's cool . . . I'm super casual about MMOs
in LOTRO I was a founding beta tester and my main character is only half way to cap
so I think I"ll just have fun with the demo until I feel like paying
who knows how long that'll be . . .
