It would be faster to get into game if new players would have warp ability in sector space,
now i am going to places with very slow speed.

Those missions are awesome, but because of limited playing time, i can only finish 1 mission per day, i
would love to finish 2 missions per day by moving fast to different locations.

I was cruising to fight borgs yesterday from Sol sector and it took me ages to get there.

In sector space you are traveling at warp. Each rank has access to a slightly faster warp speed. The game atleast allows you to simulate the time it takes to get somewhere. What level is your toon? Because borg are not until you reach RA3 and at that point your pretty close to warp 9.7 or so.

Borg? In a Sol Sector?

Well, when you become Vice Admiral you'll have access to Quantum Slipstream Drive - it enables you to travel a lot faster through sector space for 30 seconds (2.5 minutes cooldown). Via diplomacy you can earn Transwarp connections to major space stations (K7, SB39, DS9) that help getting across the Galaxy.

Just make sure you're uping your warp throttle to max. Honestly there shouldn't be that great a difference in sector space travel time (Until you hit VA1 and get the Slipstream power.)

Yes I know, traveling in sector space does not feel like warp speed. Just hover your mouse over your throttle bar. It will tell you a warp factor instead of an impulse speed value like when you are inside of a system. The sector space is meant to be a compact view of several star systems. So when it takes you only a few minutes to travel between star systems, you would indeed need to fly with a few times of lightspeed.
It does not feel like it though, I know.

Ok i am level on 10 now and if game is designed to be so slow even though i am on warp speed.
I was just confused about moving to different sector on sector border, it says entering warp or something.

Its a bit confusing at times, but i just love those missions where you need to fight in space or ground combats, so time to get into those stuff is bit slow for me

Thanks for all your help, i just love STO these days.

Does anyone have good tip for using weapons/shields on light cruiser with level 10 difficulty for beginner, because i am getting killed all the time

btw:
Does "Star Trek : Infinite space" have better looking ships than in STO?

Many things you can do. 1st there is a power bar with your ships current power levels. By default all set to level 50. You can adjust those numbers into offense and get 100 power to weapons and 50 to shields. This will yield faster killls. There is a speed setting and a defense setting. At the low levels the Aux power is not needed and should be kept at 25. Your best bet is to join a fleet and learn some very usefull information. I leveled a toon solo and joined a fleet when I made my second toon and now I can rank a toon to VA in a few weeks just because I know the game play so easily.

errm you really should not be getting killed at level 10 on normal. are you sure its set to normal difficulty? are you sure you have equipped some shields? you can redistribute them using the HUD at the bottom of the screen, if one shield is getting low, divert the power to it by clicking on the arrow next to the shield quadrant. remember to use bo abilities like science team to regenerate your shields.
make sure your power is set to max on your weapons, again from the HUD down below so that you do more damage and destroy enemy ships faster.

you can always use the exchange to try and buy some better weapons. you are almost about tyo hit the next rank (in one level) so dont buy anything yet. wait until you get your next ship (escort, science or cruiser) and then try and buy some mark IV equipment.

no, because that is a cgi trailer. the game is a browser based and will not look as good as sto.

finding and selling anomaly samples on the exchange will make you lots of money.


the movement speed is relative to the game. it can go as fast or as slow as they like to suit the gameplay which is based around an arcade on rails shooter. it has nothing to do with sto or the way missions are played here. this game is not meant to be lighting quick in getting from one place to another and at the same time its not meant to be realistically slow either.

many people feel the galaxy map is too small and we move around too quickly anyway. if they make the moment speed faster then it would make the galaxy feel even smaller, pleasing some but annoying others. you will never please everybody here but your ship does get faster as you progress.
