New player - Missions
OK, so I'm level 30, and as the title says I'm new to the game. My question is this: these missions with the unkillable ships, do they become more frequent, do they get easier at all? I'm so frustrated with this game right now that I just want to quit and chalk up the 15 bucks I spent and move on.

Yes, I know to stay away from that awesome little beam that locks me in-place and then insta death.

I've spent several million in upgrades - I'm using a defiant ship, heavy cannon front, torp back, best shields I can afford ect..

Tractor beam

you can beat it
Evasive will break you free
Venting plasma will stop it holding
Polarised hull will let you slip free
Beam fire at will will take down some of the torpedo spam
or plant a big mess of mines in its path

But yeah theres a bunch of those "you can't fight me" romulan super ships
(you get clear at the end of the mission arch)
Best advice team with someone in a Really MEAN cruiser and have him match YOUR level

Which missions?
What ships are you finding unkillable?
It's not just about ship upgrades, what is your power tray like?
Have you trained your bo's?
Are you using them and their abilities to your best benefit?

is the unkillable ship from a mission where romulans use borg tech on a ships shields? if so you need a torpedo launcher at front and use turrets on back since your going cannons on front just stay near it keep front of ship faceing it you must fire the torpedo every chance you get it simply adapts to incoming fire you use all cannon/beam it adapts you do no damage you use torpedos only it finally adapts no damage as for every other romulan ship easy to survive p.s. in escort use ship shield with largest strength and remember to use bridge officer skills to heal shields from the romulan 3 heavy torpedos

There are a couple of missions with "unkillable" ships. The Borg / Rom ship I think is one of them. Keep in mind you don't have to do all the missions. You can skip over a few. Yeah, I know most of the time you don't know what's coming before you start it, but there are other ways to survive. One thing I always do is change my ship from attack to defense and it seems to make a difference. There is also a mission where you have to fight a very tough Undine ship, but all you have to do is survive for two minutes before help arrived. Same thing. Make sure to go defensive.

A skill I absolutely love is Jam Sensors. If you get stuck in a tractor, use it and it will instantly break you free as well as keep your enemy from firing for a few seconds, allowing you to turn your ship to a stronger shield facing or just create some distance between you and them. I have it on one of my science BOFFs specifically for the reason. Later on in the game, the Borg like to get you stuck in tractors and the ability, even at level 1, is very nice to have.

On a side note, if you keep doing the missions, make sure to do the ones that give you the rerun rewards like Shard of Possibilities and the Breen and Reman BOFFs. They are nice to have. The mission "Night of the Comet" has a nice cane as a reward. If you've already done it, go back and do a replay just for the cane.
