Two? At once?
 
Can I play two different characters at the same time? Any limitations against this?

Thanks!

On the same account? Not that I'm aware of.

You can play two characters at once only if you have two different game accouunts. Login into an account that is already online will boot that initial login in off lline.

Yes, there are limitations, you can't log in twice on the same account on the server. You'd need 2 accounts and a capable machine, or 2nd pc. You can be on tribble and holodeck at the same time with one account though.

Others have already answered this, but.. I'm curious as to why you'd want to have two characters on at the same time? Friend/spouse or are you trying to "PL" your character?

I've seen it done on F2P games so that a player can transfer stuff and/or cash from one character to another without going via the mail. In STO you can't transfer EC via mail so you need a third party to hold it while you change accounts. However, there are other ways of doing it without trading it to a third party (the exchange for example, put some cheapo common item up for sale for 500K or 1 million EC and have your rich character buy it).
