i am kinda new/returning player when i last played first launched in 2010, give up just before 30 days were up.
i just bought my ship upgrades and currently rank Lt Com 5, and saw recent mission i took, one of fed ship join to fight PvE Klingon raiders, took them out in 5 secs which it took me 2-3 minutes to destroy small small.
whoa, what a pack it hit, couldnt tell what types of ship he used, it wasnt that big, but med-size ship, and i was using Enterprise-A model base on movie, Wrath of Khan.

anyway, i realized that i wasted my supply of dilithium and would save for next ship when i reach few ranks into late commander/early captain.

where do i find those ores or is there specific quest i need to take?

Do as much daily missions as you can and participate in the hourly events, but bewre you can only refine ore at a rate of 8000 per day. So lots of ore is of no use if one can't refine it.

If you have left over C-Store points you can sell them at the dilithium exchange. The rate is quite good actually.

Also, be sure to max out your doff assignments. every time you log in, receive the completed ones, and start new ones. There's different missions on each map.. so check your doffs from you ship interior, from sector space, from any social zone you might enter (Sol System) and of course on any ground maps (Academy, ESD, etc). When you go to log out, be sure to receive any completed ones, and set them up again. If you have that tribble that gives 5Di every time you pet it, once an hour.. pet the hell out of it.

This won't be a TON of extra Di, but while you're hunting for the big scores, why turn your nose up at a few easy pieces?

Before they dropped the reward, one hour in the Mirror Universe incursion could get you half a week's worth of dilithium. Now, it's still a really easy to get a full day's and extra.

Running space STFs is also pretty good. Same reward as the mirror event, but generally take longer. Not time limited, though.

Edit: Also, if you run STFs, the currency can be cashed in for dilithium. After you get a full set of mk XI weapons, that's about all you can do with rare borg salvage, but also the set piece tokens once you have the piece can be traded in, and if by some chance you have so many data chips you don't need anything with them like doffs or whatever, you can cash them in 10 at a time. Since finishing off my weapon loadout, rare borg salvage has become one of my major dilithium sources.

It is one specific breed of tribble that gives you the dilithium.

The ship you saw may have been a Escort flown by a higher level player that is why he could kill ships so much quicker. So your supply of Di was not wasted.

It's also very limited. You can get 5 ore every hour spent in-game and on the ground... and the timer seems to reset if you use the tribble for the buff before it's ready to poop some more money (and it's one of the nicer general purpose buffs).

Always having a trade, science, or exploration assignment ticking in the doff window is better - 5 ore every 30-45 minutes no matter where you go.

For starters, you can do the Academy Event for your faction at least twice a day. (I think they repeat every 10 hours or so) I got over half of the dilithium I can refine in a single day doing one this morning. "Explore Strange New Worlds" gets you 1440 dilithium, the Academy Lore mission gets you 480, as do the "Traelas System Satellite Repair" and "Sh'mar Distress Call missions." I did all of that, plus my duty officer missions, and I'm around my 8k limit for the day.

now why would you suggest to run STF's to a player that just said that he is in the Tier 2 Constitution? lol...


anyway, every quest that you accept will tell you what rewards you get, so just look through your mission list and look out for dilitihum.

it's usually 480 to 1440



for Endgame players

B'Tran gives 1440
Explore Strange New Worlds gives 1440

if you accept BOTH B'Tran missions (yes the useless one for XP only too!)
then you can do 2880 in one B'Tran mission set.


on KDF side, the Pi Canis Sorties also give a LOT, so make sure to check those numbers out.
