Quite a few times, but I figured that since I had gotten so far already, I might as well keep going for a little bit more.

Though now that I'm 51, I haven't gotten past Ensign still, and it's been *really* tempting to just spend all my skill points at one. I'm resisting so far though, and have been slowly grinding out some Emblems...not that anything I can buy with Emblems I can use, as an Ensign.

Congrats nonetheless!
Up to 21 wasn't too bad. The difficulty range doesn't start becoming near insurmountable until closer to the 30's. That's about when I started having to do more diplomatic type missions, or maybe find a group, which was tough, as I'm not in an active fleet.

Nice work though Ainu

There are more 'challenging' things than just to grind a 'few' diplomatic missions. Without outside help it still is THE ironman challenge of STO though. :p
I figured someone else would have to have done it. I started this quite a while ago, but slowed down a lot in the later levels, since I didn't really have outside help for more than a few missions, and did quite a few levels solely on 'Rescue the Deferi Captives'.

That is tenacity and determination all rolled up into one. and no, you are the first I know if that have completed this. Feel free to group up with me if you need help anytime.

and if you need to blow up a klink or two, holler I'll let you use my klinks as target practice.
Thanks. I'm still wanting to see if I can do the STFs...Infected and Cure at least. KA I'm not so sure about since I would basically have to be carried for space parts.

I don't think I need Klingons though, as I'm avoiding non Ker'rat PVP dailies, since I wouldn't be of any help to my team. Even Ker'rat, I have problems with Klingons who think it's fun to 1 shot me every time I spawn. I figure they'd get tired of it eventually and realize I can't put up any sort of fight...but I guess not.
