I have already started to develop a play style which is keep my distance and firing.

I would struggle to choose between cruiser and escort hence one of my reasons for asking. How do I decide? Also any help you can offer with layouts would be great.

Great community here. Thanks all.
You can check out the different kinds of ships available by going to

I also have a guide on how to choose a ship in STO, which basically gives details about all three types.

Finally, my sto skill planner is usually a big help in planning out your skills. You can also go to the build sharing page and find builds that other people have made.
