ok the game pretty much has no economy so far I seen, the energy credits are easy to come by and easyer to spend even, but... hey people it's the FEDERATION, the federation has no economy at all, there's plenty energy for everyone and plenty pretty much everything for everyone. the only real thing one can buy could be samples.. and apart that.. there isn't much that you need, it could be interesting to trade for latinum to obtain ferengi ships, or obtain rare and strange ships from ferengi.. or things that aren't too much researched by the federation or unknown, such as parts of ships from romulan empire, or cardassian ones that improves stuff not common for federation. Also ferengi have their own researchers they can sell even the scientific data, either researched by them... or stolen to some other race.. smuggling is a hard work but someone gotta do it..
BY THE WAY the kithomer accords in this game are broken, the romulans and klingons are at war with the federation that means the federation should be able to use cloaking devices as well as the other races. (the federation did sign the treaty to not use them and not develop technologies. but no peace with romulans and klingons, and NO accord.)
this means that the federation has alot to trade from the ferengi and must obtain the latinum (the ferengi loves the 'star-gold' ) latinum can come from minerary extraction from nebulae, since as far as I know it's not found as mineral and cannot be replicated (but I might be wrong.)
also, one real commodity needed by the federation... DILITHIUM CRYSTALS. they (I'm sure of) cannot be replicated, and dilithium is needed to make warp cores work, that is pretty much required for all starships and dilithium also wears over time and needs to be replaced, that could be.. something needed by federation and an actual commodity to buy.. could be used by ships actually and consumed. making dilithium a needed commodity.. the bigger is the ship the more it needs dilithium. of course it's far from rare in the galaxy but still it's something to keep up with.
for now you just should fix the search options of the AH, it's a mess for now, no worry tho as long it's not that useful you can skip that part.
as far as pvp, raids and everything else.
I have no data on them so far, I haven't had enough time to level up my characters, I will give out my opinion and advice about it when I will have troughly reviewed the system and compared it to other MMO.
had to add these later because each message can be up to 11000 characters long lol
