Hello everyone,

I wanted to say hi as I have decided to stop lurking and actually participate in the forums. Im a HUUUGE Trekkie [have every collectable boxset of every series...love them all and have watched them all] and always wanted to play the game but couldn't afford it thanks to life commitments [University and my fiance!]

I signed up as soon as I heard of F2P and haven't looked back since. Lurked on the forums for months and played a similar length of time. There is still plenty I have to learn and little nuances the game has I discover all of the time.

My main character is Mi'Laxara Urash, an Andorian Vice Admiral, who commands the U.S.S Mill [Star Cruiser: she is an engineer] and im really enjoying her. She was my second character [first was a science] and I find her much more enjoyable.

Anyway, I'll stop waffling. Hope to see you all in-game and on the forums.

You "claim" to be a Trekkie. But only true trekkies know the answer to the secret question...

Kirk or Picard?

EDIT: Welcome to STO. May I interest you in some flapjacks instead?

Good to see more 'veterans' of January 2012. I'm one of them too. Looking for something similar to SFC2 space combat but with more roleplaying and shipboard management aspects, STO was the perfect 'universal combat' type game and still is.

Of course, having an excellent and supportive community helps with STO's staying power as well. The several actively posting dev team members are also worth staying for - especially when you get a dev response to new suggestions or bug reports within a matter of hours, sometimes.

While lurking is the standard modus operandi is normal for us newer F2P people it never hurts to speak one's mind openly. This is a very helpful community that is also tolerant to personal/cultural differences. Lurking can get you standard answers and hints but nothing beats personalized assistance for specific issues - issues that may very well earn you some crucial gameplay insight, save money, get better deals, etc.

For sure we have had very interesting discussions with new players over the past half year and I continue to dedicate my time solely to assisting newer Captains with creating their own optimal character and ship builds... by themselves.

There are a lot of advanced gameplay mechanics seldom shared on the forums that can totally change the way you run space and ground ops - the secrets of maximum performance are actually very simple yet conveniently buried in clutter or lack of detailed in-game explanation.

If there's anything I can help you with to break the 'fog of war' so to speak, I'll be happy to lend a hand

Thanks for the warm welcome, you and everyone else. I think I will post a few threads on my ship build and future plans in-game. I dont like trying to rip the fun out of things by trying to make my ship awesome at the expense of doing what I want even if it is not the most efficient. There is however a lot of the mechanics and things in-game that I still have to learn about and the forums should be a gold mine.

Thanks for offering to help me when I need it.
