urgh i hate posting on forums for the first time and knowing nothing about what im talking about so bare with me lol
okay so my first question is,
how do I gain access to the dilithium ive earned from defeating the borg?
The officer gives you a choice of a level appropriate item or a small dilithium container every time i choose the container its nowhere to be found at least for me anyway when i go to buy a new ship there is 0 dilithium.
so how do i access the dilithium ive received and make it available for me to use ?
Bridge officer abilities:
okay so my tactical officer has a few abilities i want to change around, because right now im using high yield warhead III and Cannons (i cant remember the name for it, increases the fire rate of your cannon's?) so yeah anyway there is another abilities i want to swap for the cannon ability, something to do with phasers(attacking multiple targets at once i think?) seeing as i don't use cannons for the moment..
so i was wondering if its possible to swap around tactical officer abilities in space ? if so how?
is it worth buying?
i know i should of probably searched the forums for answers but every time i do that with any game it takes forever to find the answers i need so its much easier for me to ask directly (sorry if you find that annoying).
Dilithium: Under the assets tab in your inventory, make sure you're refining what you get. Dilithium is rewarded as ore, but to be used or traded needs to be refined first. That's a one-click matter in the assets panel, with an 8000 per day refinement cap.
Boff abilities: Yes. There's a trainer in the personnel section at earth spacedock who can train many abilities to your officers. Certain advanced abilities you can train yourself if you've advanced to rank 6 in the associated skill, and you can also used unassigned bridge officer candidates to transfer one of their abilities to an officer you've already commissioned.
Zen: If there's something you want enough to justify the cost, yes. You can trade refined dilithium for Zen, but it's a player-to-player exchange so prices fluctuate, and it typically takes quite a while to get most things that way. Not insurmountable, but 2500 zen for a high end ship can take weeks or months.
