Well, the other forums would be more accurate. Ten Forward is definitely an organism that cannot be trifled with. We like our little hole in the wall, and aim to keep it nice and tidy. At least this was my observation after migrating here from the Star Trek Online Discussion forums.

Remember that level progression IS NOT A RACE. As said above, take your time, read the mission text, see all the sights in each Starbase, flip every lever in the Shipyard Editor, just to see what it all does. Visit Sol Starbase often, but leave before it makes you chat all night. Breed tribbles, but stop before they eat your Klingon Octopus (sells for quite a bit).

And don't take anything personally in game or on these boards. Especially in-game... if someone's a jerk, remember that odds are that you'll never see them again. And if you do and they're still rude, well, that's why God made "Ignore Player" buttons for.

Listen to Shatners Version of Lucy In the Sky with Diamonds over and over. a sure fire way to get in the mood for STO.

I agree with exploring, but just made sure you don't venture too far, especially if you're a lower-level chracter.

While exploring, I accidentally ventured into a battle with about 10 Jem'Hadar ships. All with me at Lt. Cmdr. Level 3. LOL!

I couldn't warp outta there fast enough.

Any advice?
Yeah, join a fleet. That way you can get help during your time as low rank officer. More ships in a team means survival. That is why I am proud to extend an invitation for you to join my fleet. If you are interested, check the link in my sig. While you are there sign up to leave messages on my forums.

Note: I realize this is the wrong thread for recruiting others.

1. Realize this is a game and do not take it too seriously. Ever. If someone is a jerk in game, realize this is just a game. If you get killed in PvP, realize it is just a game. Do not let your life become this game.
2. Chat bites.
3. Sulu is in the Admiral's Office, Egg is in the middle of Earth Starbase, and Romaine is at Memory Alpha.
4. Be excellent to each other.
5. Pikes on the outside, muskets in the middle, cavalry on the flanks. I think this somehow applies to Star Trek Online...or maybe that is a late medieval battle strategy...
6. I choose you, Piplup!
7. Ravenstein is not only brilliant, sexy, and funny, she is also you superior officer.
8. You get to the next rank by getting to level 11 in your current rank and spending all your skill points.
9. Plan ahead. There is a limit to how many skill points you get.
10. There is no tip number 10
11. Kill Phil, sorry Phil.
12. If you see a Klingon smiling, something is wrong. Be on your guard.
13. When in doubt, have faith in the Emperor. Ships and soldiers can win wars, but faith alone can overturn the universe.
14. Use energy weapons to take down enemy shields, then use photon torpedoes.
15. Shoot down those big green torpedoes!
16. Play with your power settings and adjust them as needed during a fight. Pay attention to them.
17. Space skills first, then ground skills.
18. You can transfer power from strong shields to weak ones by clicking on the shield facing or by pressing the appropriate arrow key.
19. Cruisers will outlast the enemy, science vessels will use tricksy skills to win, and escorts just beat it as had as they can as fast as they can. Forget about tanks, healers, and dps specialties.
20. Memento Mori.

Tatanka has a great thread that is a sticky in the Academy Forums. It is a great guide for new players.

Enjoy the game.

It's better to ride on the sidewalk and be careful of pedestrians rather than ride in traffic.

* Farming the Deep Space Encounters Sulu's (Great Grandson) gives you is a nice way to get upgraded weapons and consoles for your ship.

* Don't throw away the crust of your bread, eat it! It is healthy. At least feed it to the cold birds outside!

* Sulu is located in the same office Admiral Quinn is; when facing Quinn, just turn around and THERE he is!

* When making an investment, it is best to make it with money you do not need atm or feel safe if losing if your investment does not pay off. It is recommended that one only invest 25% of thier extra money in risky investments, depending on your temperment, it could be even less: as low as 5%.

* Go to "Options" and then to "Key Binds". Click on the "Throttle Up" or "Throttle Down" for special keys. Re-map these to your mouse wheel. Space combat/movement will be much easier then.

* When eating candy with see-through cellophane colored wrappers, save the wrappers and use it on your flashlight or old-timey lightsaber to produce different colors.
