It's impossible to avoid anything ground based, that is if you want to see the entire story. Many of the main story missions are indeed ground based. You can if you want "SKIP" those episodes. The option is in your mission journal. Otherwise , just don't do ground based fleet actions, or STFs or whatnot. Just choose space battles.

I do not think it's possible to change your login name ? I could be wrong, but I think once you've choosen that name , it's your handle.

Also, a final thought. Patience is a virtue. You're level 5. Obviously by looking around the game, yes, bigger , faster ships do become available. Try and enjoy what you have. Levelling is stupid fast in this game. You'll be level 50 , flying the big awesome ships in no time.

But a more direct answer. You'll find out more when you make level 10 and become a Lcdr. Every RANK up , you get a new ship that is "better" than the one you were just flying.

Welcome to STO.
Hope you enjoy it.

Except for Rear Admiral Upper Half, and Vice Admiral (levels 45 and 50 respectively).

Ground missions are horrible in STO. I couldn't agree more with the OP. I do everything possible to avoid them.

What the hell is a vice admiral doing running around on a dangerous planet collecting data samples for someone who can't be botherred doing it themselves anyway???

You get new ships at levels 10, 20, 30, and 40. If you want to level up very quickly, the Mirror Universe event goes quick, a couple levels in an hour, all space combat, but you have to be Level 10 to do it at all. But don't push it so fast on your first character, as you will make plenty of build mistakes and the faster you push the less time you'll have to spot your mistake and mostly-correct it (or at least not compound it). Or you can spend dilithium on zen and zen on a respec token, but you really do need to learn to know what works and what doesn't before you go spending money.

Ask Jim Kirk.

WTF is an admiral doing getting in to a ship-to-ship battle with a stolen fed boat, or getting in to a fist fight with an angry Klingon, or going back in time to swipe some whales?

The Feds and the Klingons probably realize that they might as well issue orders to go do dangerous things, otherwise the Admirals will just steal the ships and go do them anyway.
