I am playing with a pretty casual group of people, and for the ground missions make my character a melee dmg dealer, or at least have the option... I am more into space combat personally, but thought it might be fun to try.

Any general advice for STO melee? and of course what weapon should I get?

you only have 2 options, martial arts or batleth, there both ok but you won't be doing anything like the damage of ranged weapons.

Can you equip a bat'leth if you also have 2 ranged weapons equipped or does it take one of those slots?

I dont suppose it would be useful either way, but it could be fun to play with.

Yes: don't do it. We have guns now; you don't need to slap someone around, shoot them in the face instead. (well back of the head preferable, but you get the idea)

it takes a weapon slot (as does martial arts) their fun but not THAT effective.

Yeah I am just doing it for fun ground missions are quite a bit on the easy side anyways.

Will get a batleth, is there any particular skills that help with that weapon?

Anyone know which is better, martial arts or using a batleth?

Does the skill "close combat training" improve use with the batleth?

Some places/pvp matches should force a special 'hands only' fight.

Which would, quite frankly, ROCK!
The hand-to-hand combat anims are quite spiffy, and well-deserving of a little use now and again.

Where do you go to get the bat'leth?

The best melee weapon is the butt of the best ranged weapon.
