Im sorry but Space combat is beyond boring, and the missions bore me to death. Just wondering if I can just got to a planet on the group and grind exp by fighting.
Every MMO I ever played you could quest or grind?
From what I've seen, no. This game is based around its story arc. In my opinion, the missions aren't boring, and space combat is rather fun when playing with a fleet mate or two. If you play with a full group, it completely changes the feel.
the closest thing I've found to grinding in STO are the Enemy Signal Contact missions
Since there is a 5 minute restart between each running of one go through of the instance, you can just fly around between them and kill enemies of your level or better to get a few more xp. And since the entire mission itself is repeatable..
