Fastest Way of Getting Energy Credits - for better ships
 
I am relatively new to the game.

What is the best way of getting energy credits so i can get better starships?

I am stuck with a light lite cruiser on K9, i am definitely need a better ship, i can't get past 2000 or so energy credits...

Any advise?

Thanks,

just leveling to the next rank and getting one for free should work.

Run the missions, sell the junk you pick-up. Any uncommon loot you're not using should be put on the exchange for a tidy profit.

But you do get 1 free ship at each rank increase, really that should be more than enough.

PvP works by joining Queues (it's on the same menu set as the C-Store, the V triangle in the mini-map view). Join a match, earn PvP badges. Each map is your basic "kill the other side" with either a capture the flag or a simple timer goal (at least those that i've joined).

PvP earns you PvP badges which you can then exchange for usually better gear than what you can get from exploration badges.

As to the ship question, since you can't fly a ship higher than your rank, just stick with the one you are given for free at each promotion. The only time you'll need credits to buy a ship is if you felt you chose the wrong one for the freebie (i.e. got a cruiser then felt you should have gotten a science vessel).

Hope that helps.
