I've only been playing for 3 or 4 days now and am already lvl 25.
Dont spend lots of credits on the gear, you'll out level it faster then you can blink.
Go to the exchange and do a search for Dual Cannons "Your rank" "rare" Sometimes people place there stuff on the exchange for insanely low prices by mistake or what not, but they do. I bought a rare dual cannon for 8k credits yesterday. If not, switch it from rare to uncommon. If nothing, go to common. I personally like Disruptors but the phaser cannons get the job done as good as any of the other cannons.
3 dual cannons up front and 2 turrets in the back. (Turrets will probably be the most expensive weapon you buy)
Or you should be able to go even cheaper. The NPC that sells ship weapons at the shipyard might have the Dual Beams for the front of your ship, which IMO work just as good as the cannons. (If you have the beam skills instead of the cannons)
Still not sure why all the weapon's should be same type though =)
