Howdy all,

basically I am wondering, I rarely get zen, but bought some recently, my question is

would you rather go for 4 character slots and a new costume?

or slots and original series ship

or buy a new vice admiral class ship

or any other ideas?

I don't know what to do with it cause I don't know when I'll be able to afford zen next.

Well, what do you want to do now? Start a new character? Get the slots. Keep playing with your current character? Get a VA ship. Really it is up to you.

Generally, i would recommend buying a C-Store ship on the VA level. You just get most out of it, as such ships will be unlocked for all your existing and future characters of that faction.

Character slots would be my second recommendation.

You could also buy fleet ship modules if you are in a fleet, thats what i plan to do. 2000 zen gets 4 modules.

I'd buy 4 fleet modules and get into a fleet to grind out the fleet ship of your choice.

Assuming your Silver, the Increased EC Cap is a wise buy.
VA ships are another good one, since more and more upcoming content is focused on end game, you will get long use out her.
Most of all, Items that unlock for your Account, rather than just a character.

do you have plenty of inventory space? that always comes in handy. same with bridge officer and doff slots. i highly recommend a full crew. these things are constant. ships come and go. there will always be new ships coming out.

Thank you all indeed for all your replies. I appreciate every single one.

I still do not know what to do , the reason for this is because it is unlikely I shall be able to get zen for a long while now lol.

So that is my reason for having a good long think bout this.

I can see both sides of view, to buy a ship or to buy other things like klingon fed character and slots or costumes etc.

I'm thinking perhaps the original series ship , character slots and costume,

or a vice admiral ship.

I Just Don't know! LOL

anyhow thanks all for your answers.

Live Long and Prosper.

Since for you ZEN is hard to come by, then I recommend concentrating on the gameplay aspect of your gaming experience.

This means invest in a VA ship, since it will probably be a long time before you acquire more zen. Also try to stock up on dilithium and exchange them for Zen point.

It is a slow process but eventually you'll manage to save a substantial amount.

Keep in mind that if you are a silver player:

#1 Go for the VA ship of your choosing
#2 farm dilithium and exchange it for zen points (slow but effective)
#3 save for zen points and make sure to increase your EC currency silver player cap

Raising your EC cap is important as you can now save more EC in order to buy and sell in the market.

Forgot whats the silver account EC cap, I know its very low.

so here is the order once again:

1. Buy your choice of a VA ship with zen
2. Next time you earn Zen points, Buy a increase EC Cap at the CStore
