This post is not asking how to get energy credits, as I already know how to acquire them. This post is asking how to get a lot of them, and very fast.
So, I decided to work on my crafting, and I didn't start until Commander. So, having as much energy credits as I did, I figured it wouldn't hurt to buy any data I'm missing on the exchange. Yeah, right. I need 12 encoded data for one item, and each encoded data is about 15,000 energy credits.
So, basically, I need to know how to get rich fast.
Does difficulty level have an effect on the rewards for Aid the Planet missions?
I Have noticed none. I usually get Greens from Elite Missions, but in the few past days, i've played on normal to get me through Diplomatic missions (yawn), and I still get about the same amount of greens as before.
So I would say no, my dear Ferengi... No profit there
There's no way I can play on elite. I couldn't even get past the first group of Klingons. I try to target the Swordmaster and command all of my BOs to attack him, but I'm dead before I can even do that much.
