Since I have searched every where I seem to not be able to find a rough break-down of player progression and levels. Like how many levels are there for each rank? I went through Ensign which was 10 levels, so I expected Lieutenant to be 10 levels as well. Well, I'm sitting here at Lt. 12 and wondering wth?
It would be nice to see a chart of sorts so I know where I stand. Any Admirals mind chiming in?
TO get to Lt. Commander 1, you have to spent 6700 of your skillpoints. Obviously you havent done that. Press 'K, choose your characters name, his skills, and start spending those Skillpoints by pressing the little up-arrows under all the Skills in the left side of the skill-tree.
Ensign lasts through the Tutorial and your first meeting with Quinn. After that, you have all the points you need to get to Lieutenant. If you want to be a stickler, you can consider Lt/1-5 as your time in "Lieutenant (j.g.)".
