I've started working on a second character and I still have much to learn. I seem to never have any EC on this new girl though, I'm not using transwarp or buying anything.
Just now I noticed in the chat window:
"[System] [NumericLost] You lost 50,000 energy credits"
Ok, maybe a stupid question, but can someone tell me why?
Also, while I'm on a roll, a second newbie question. Where has 'Investigate officer reports' gone? I last done it a couple of days ago, and now I can't find it anywhere.
Thanks in advance!
A possible reason is duty officer missions. Bear in mind that some of those missions require rather hefty sums of EC, especially the Purchase Turret ones. Next time, you may want to check just above where you assign the duty officers in order to check if it requires any EC.
Not a clue about your second question, though.

I do not understand why so many STO players seem to have EC problems. My fleeties and I ran one of the Tau Dewa patrol missions a few times, and got hundreds of thousands of EC (each) from all the junk we picked up. A single day of marauding missions on my klink got me 14 contraband, that's what, 3/4 of a million credits? Super rare weapons from ESTF missions can sell for several million each...
