I've joined STO a few weeks ago, and it's time to greet you!
I would have joined earlier, but I have little experience with MMO. The only other game I played several years ago wasn't free-to-play and sometimes was even frustrating, so I'm a bit wary of online games, but STO looks ok so far. Shooting photon torpedoes is big fun.
Some policies like asking Zen for more inventory slots may feel questionable, but I concede the right of Cryptic to try and squeeze some money out of the players.
I still have a long way up the ranks and a lot of questions, but there is no hurry. I'm going to read a few guides and sticky threads, before pestering you with noob issues.
