So, I'm a lifetime subscriber (since release), and for various reasons never got into playing the game a whole lot in the beginning. I recently got a new computer and was going through my Steam games and re-installing them when I finally got back around to STO.
With the Zen stipend for the lifetime sub I have a few thousand Zen accumulated on the account now. I also have 175K or so refined dilithium (not sure where that came from), and apparently some veteran's rewards (some I can't use until later I guess).
So my question is, what should I do with it? Should I hold onto it for later levels, or spend on things now to ease leveling up? I'm still flying the starting Miranda and haven't even hit Commander yet.
