OK, started plying STO, ust add that game is way oo complex, way too many things to worry about and way too many ways in which Cryptic/Atari can rip of Star trek fans. Sorry for my bluntness but I hate corporate nonsense especially when it tries to tip me off. Anyways, without any help and alliance w/e I completed few tutorial missions in Vulcan sector, progressed to Ensign 3 or what ever that is, or Lieutenant, not sure which one i am now, game is that confusing! O yes, went on a killing spree to kill few orion pirates and Gorn ships. Its best I find to get some energy credits (collect parts from ships that you've just destroyed), its a slow way of making a living in the game, but I have no idea, so if you guys have any ideas as to how to make a decent living,progress faster in ranks,w/e would be nice to make a guide for newbs such us I. I rate this game 6/10.
