Most of the credits i make selling stuff to the replicator that i don't need or want... once you get up pass lieutentat 7 drops start comming in like crazy diffcult to keep my inventory clean... but i get enough credits by the time i got to lt commander i could get two ships... you get some for missions as well
.after you reach lieutenant 11 and sepnt your skill points it will change to lt commander 1 and you'll be contacted to visit starbase one at earth to see the admiral and get your new ship
1. How do you earn energy credits? I've done a patrol mission and an exploration mission and still no energy credits. How do I get them?
You get them for just about everything. As you collect stuff, sell it. You will receive energy credits. As you complete missions you will also receive energy credits.

You will fly your noobiranda until you reach LtCmdr. At this point you will receive a chit for a new ship at the shipyard. You must spend 6700 skill points before you will receive your promotion mission. After you complete the promotion mission you will be promoted and receive a chit which is good for either an escort, cruiser, or science vessel.
