So, I'm pretty sure I'm doing to download this tonight. Any good resources/advice for a beginner? The one month gold is a good start.
The STOWiki is a reliable resource if you're Federation or Klingon. The updates for Romulan content aren't in yet though.
- Any captain career can make ANY ship effective. Don't listen to people who insist that you have to fly a certain ship just because you're a certain career. If you roll Romulan you don't have to worry about that until the endgame, since ship selection is limited.
-It's usually a better idea not to mix too many weapon types (cannons and beams, different energy types). You incur a power penalty. However, just for playing missions you don't need to worry, the content is easy enough.
- Use your pre-endgame levels to experiment with different ship types and styles. Try out escorts, cruisers and science vessels and see how you do
-Tactical team is your friend. Always have Tactical Team I on any ship setup.
