I am a little confused with how XP is working on Tribble. Currently I am a Captain 2 and have only just now gotten 'Preemptive Strike,' which itself is giving me 1240xp. From my understanding the XP was increased to allow new players to get through Lieutenant quicker and get their first ship.
Adding to my confusion, the Rewards window which shows you what you get at each level says that the Romulans are unlocked at lvl-17. Which to me suggests that a new player should finish the Klingon Episodes by the time they are Commander, which makes since as that is how it works on Tribble now.Yet I did not finish the Klingon Episodes until I was most of the way through Commander, I should point out that I have been only doing Episodes and a couple Mirror Universe Events.
