I know this is a pretty "noob" question, but what purpose does food serve in STO? I read the description, but it seems you can only use it out of combat, and when I do use it I dont see my health points go up. Can anyone explain?
Some Doff missions require it
Some actual missions include some elements of it as well
You can eat it
It has various values on various planets
Give it to your crew and they will repair themselves during gaps in combat
Food doesn't give you extra hit points. It heals your hit points when you are low on health. It's pointless really because you will most likely have a Science bridge officer with you that can heal. And your health goes back up rather quickly out of combat if you wait a moment.
Feed the tribbles to make new tribbles. Feed the tribbles to the cannibal tribble. Feed the tribble carcasses to the security officer collecting them. Collect dilithium.
