Ok so i am back. I apologise to the Mod Gods if this is considered "necro" but to me it's still a valid topic and i only stopped posting in it because the real life monster's size 16 steel-capped me in the danglies and i was off line for 2+ weeks.

This is pretty much my experience having played so far as my KDF toon.
Now that i am back, i am gonna try and do at least one of the 2 FE's i missed to get caught up on them on my FED Science Officer before server down. If i can sneak both in most of tomorrow will be devoted to levelling my Klingon and (hopefully) getting my next tier ship.
oh and i missed the helpful peopls in this thread while i was offline - cheers all.
