New player here
 
Is there a section for new players to ask questions? I thought that The Academy was the spot, but reading through the posts here, seems like a bunch of stuff is been discussed that dont apply to brand new players seeking guidance and information. No being a smart mouth just looking for that spot where newbies beam up.

The Academy should be the right place to ask questions, but sometimes people tend to post other threads there as well.

A good place to find info would be http://www.stowiki.org, but feel free to ask away.

..... just ask the question smart mouth;)
Every post doesn't have to be from a brand new player, but I see plenty here that seem basic and new to me. Just ask the question, if some one knows they'll answer, might be quick, might not, but more than likely you'll get a response.

Thank you guys, didnt mean to be rude or anything like that, I am just learning the ropes, so many questions will come here. Thanks again.

Ok FIrst one

Do I have to buy a ship from the Criptic store?

thats your choice they are not needed to play the game they are just added benefits for playing IMO.

C-store ships have nice toys to entice the sale but not one offers anything that makes them required on any level. Each has a different power it provides in trade for something else like consoles or hull strength. I would suggest playing through on a character using the normal stuff before clouding the waters. You can always respec later to move points into the new ship.

Without knowing how to effectively use your points it is far too easy to feel ripped off when your ship pops every 10 seconds. ;)
