Welcome to STO, Elizabeth. Once you get your feet wet, you might consider joining a fleet. (Actually, a fleet can be of great help when starting out as well). The upcoming season 6 release will feature a lot fleet development content. Plus, it's nice to have a group of friends to play with. (Fleets in STO are like Guilds in other games).
Oh, and Roach, I almost spit out my drink on my laptop when I read your display name.
Thanks! I shall definitely check it out!
To be honest, I'm a tad nervous about what all to do on here. Its like when you stop playing something like WoW for instance, and you come back, and it's all new and foreign to you. I know I'll definitely have to rely on you all to help me out at first, and if you know any other stuff to look up around here, let me know!!
Thank you so much for the help and for being very nice!
Greetings, elizabethkirk! It is always good to see a new person so energetic! :biggrin:
Now, my global name is @DeltaFox and I will be so very happy to help out however I can in game. So shoot me a message (not a torpedo!) when you get ingame and we can be friends! Also, I love the newest trek movie! Also, ST: Enterprise!
Awe, thanks! :3
I shall shoot you a message sometime when my game is finished (not a torpedo, promise!) and yes! I'd love to be friends!
Oh I definitely cannot wait for the new one, can you? The more of Chris Pine and Quinto, the better.
Enterprise I haven't really gotten into much! Just TOS and TNG. Some of Voyager though.
STO takes place in the year 2409, which is 30 years after Star Trek: Nemesis. The above link goes to some stories that fill in the gaps between the movie and the game. These were released on the site before the game went live and have since been moved into the game. It might give you a better idea on situations and story lines we have going on in game.
Oh and I would suggest bookmarking the STO Wiki page, it's a good resource to have on hand.
Hello Ellie! I'm another Trekkie lady in the community. I also roleplay (major gamer), cosplay, build weapons/armor, prosthetics and more, love tabletop RPG and LARPing - including sci-fi, post-apocalyptic, and steampunk LARP, and more. This year, I'm going for my second time to the massive Vegas Star Trek convention, which I recommend if/when you can ever make it to one! There's also another in London coming up (not sure where you're based in the world).
I also read and write at fanfiction.net (mostly TMNT, ST-TNG, Gargoyles, Farscape, Firefly, Riddick, and others). I'd love to get recommendations from you on good Trek stories and authors there!
On that note, if you are interested in fanfiction, the STO Foundry is PERFECT for you! I recently began working on my first mission and story with it and I know a few great foundry pros who can guide you if you need. If you aren't making the missions, then for sure check out the foundry in the game and play other people's missions/stories. It's in the side menu of the main Journal/Missions pop up page, as Community Authorized missions. Then just put anything in the search field (might have to click a little button to drop it down and make it visible) and see what comes up! Hail it and play it! There are ways to get more rewards from them and I can share if you'd like. Not sure what level you're at.
Also, feel free to mail me or find me in game and friend me. I'm always up for chatting, roleplay, or running missions with people - so if you want to level up faster or want company on a mission, contact me! When I'm being casual, silly, or roleplaying, I'm usually at Drozana Station or DS9.

Oh you can bet I am green with envy at this moment! Conventions!! I've always wanted to go to one, never had the money though. Maybe after graduation next Spring I'll have enough. (College student...enough said? heh)
I love how enthusiastic you are! How kind and just generous everyone is so far. Yes, I LOVE fanfiction. That's all I ever do when I'm home besides homework. I've definitely got a lot of stories bookmarked, the storylines people come up with!!
I shall definitely contact you via ingame and out, I could use all the help I can get!
