08-02-2012, 02:24 PM
Hello,

I am a new player to STO and i am playing it now for a few days and i have a i quess a Noob question.

When my character is on the starbase and i rightclick on my chars. picture in the upper left corner (standard HUD) end i select info i get a screen with some of my chars features.
Under the name of my ship is a line called: Unspent skill points.

I can't seem to find any way to spent those skillpoints.

Can i spend those skill points?
If Yes, How?

Thanks in advance for answering this question.

Greetings,

Press U to bring up your Character screen. Then select the "Skills Tab" and you will see a window of Boxes representing skills, where you can assign points using the up arrow. There is a small guide on stowiki

Also, check out STo Academy which has a Skills Planner : http://www.stoacademy.com/tools/skillplanner

Sorry to bump this topic, but are you sure? And I assume the posted is correct, but... Here is where I get with this. When I look at my character I see Unspent Skill Points = 147572. Now when I add up all of the true skill points that I have not used (available) 7,072+3,827... This math is easy to understand. I am way off from what that info is saying... If i add all of the skill points I have used the total amount equals to 206,077... I think its just a bug and cryptic don't care.

It's just dumb to have it listed, if its not relevant or accurate. For new players like me I have been scouring the internet for hours looking at this, wondering if I do in fact have skill points to spend else where.

Oh I think you're talking about skill points that you can use to train your Boffs. Those skill points can also be used for Reputation, and some Fleet Projects....

The 'Unspent Experience' field on the Info window for character is misnamed. It's actually total Earned Experience. You can see a better breakdown on how your experience is spent at the bottom of the Skills window. The Available: field is your unspent XP. The Space/Ground Spent: field are your spent XP.
