Welcome, let me try to help you.

To login and play, you use the Account Login for Perfect World by selecting "Perfect World" in the login screen. You would login like this:

Username: skilt1701
Password: Your Pass Here

Its possible that "Cryptic" is selected, as there are players who did not link their accounts, so Cryptic lets them keep this option.

Creating a Character:
There are 3 Carrers: Tactical, Engineer, Science

Tactical: DPS aka Damage role: You use Escorts for your ship, and do the most direct damage of the 3 Careers.

Engineer: Support and Tanking: You soak up damage and support your allies on the ground with Explosives and Turrets.

Science: Healer and Buffer/Debuffer: You heal and weaken the enemy/Strengthen your allies.

You can find a detailed guide for your first time play here, at the STO Wiki:

As this game is Free to Play, you dont need to actually spend any money. You will get a full set of ships all the way to max level, and 2 Character Slots (the second slot is unlocked later).

Guilds aka Fleets: If you like the game and want to join a fleet, head to the "Starbase One" forum here: http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/forumdisplay.php?f=79

If you have any more questions, feel free to ask! I am always wiling to help new players.

Let's see now, 9 euro buys 1k Zen, with the going rate of what I assume is the American dollar you would get somewhere around 4k Zen with 50 USD. Probably a slight bit more.

Actually, it's an even 100 zen to the dollar. It gives you all the amounts on the page where you buy the zen, after you pick the payment method. So $50 USD is 5000 zen, plus you get a 300 zen bonus at that level, so you actually get 5300 zen.
