Hi everyone. I just installed STO and am excited to get playing! I've played three other MMOs so I'm familiar with the basic concept, but wanted to see if some you experts had any tips for newbs like myself.

Thanks!

Starfleet Academy is your best-est friend ever, nearly anything you want to know can be found there, We're all Bozos on this Bus.

Try to not stray too far from SA forums and Ten Forward, unless you like drama force-injected into your veins. :p

If you want to hear about how crappy the game is, browse any forum besides Ten Forward and Starfleet Academy.

If you want to have a good time, do the exact opposite.

That is all.

Thanks everyone for the great tips! I'm really liking STO so far. The missions are fun, the space battles are awesome and... it's a great way to stay in shape.

The only thing staying in shape while I play STO is the flatness of my butt on the chair.

Here are Ravensteins top 20 tips for STO:
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.
