Thanks again for all the great info. I had no idea you could buy ships on the exchange, and for EC. I got a Mirror Universe patrol escort for a measly 50k, and will probably grab one of the science ships too. I would have felt like an idiot if I had dropped 120k dilithium on one of those just to try them out!

Hands up if you agree that everything Tangolight wrote should be stickied.

Yea pretty thorough information for all the new folks . Another good thing is the patrol missions they repeat at the specific planet so if your looking to complete the destroy xxx ships of this race accolades just find the patrol that spawns the ships you want to destroy you'll not only get the kill accolades but you will most likely get the damage received and the damage sent accolades to for all weapon types if you remember to switch it out your ship weapons for those accolades.

That gets a yes-yes answer .
Some content is shared among the factions , but both factions offer plenty of stand alone stuff as well , but as others have said , don't be in a hurry , you'll get there eventually .

After level 10 on any faction, Mirror Invasion. They seem to occur a little less than before. Used to have them upwards of twice in 24 hours, 3 in 48 hours. Now its more like once a day and the time isn't going to be convenient every other day.

If your leveling Alt's its an important thing in leveling. Or if you don't want to do stories on your mains. You can do 4 to 5 an hour at low levels getting 3 or 4 levels out of it. If your short on time to play but can make the time its on its very valuable.

Thanks! I've never actually gotten anything I wrote stickied. Probably because I mostly just reply to other people rather than writing up a stand alone guide or something.

Unless it was changed very recently, patrol missions aren't repeatable. You can go in, kill stuff, then warp out before actually completing it, and then start it over again later though.

Some people prefer just levelling up doing stuff like that, but as I mentioned, it's not for everyone, especially for new players. If you want to experience the story missions, or do exploration, or doffs, foundry, etc. I wouldn't really recommend doing the Mirror Universe more than the number of times it takes before it stops being fun, as there's plenty of other content in game to level up on.

Personally, for my alts, if I wanted to level with the minimum effort, I'd probably just park at the Academy and do nothing but doff assignments once I've unlocked them.

I did private arena ground pvp matches after I finished all the Romulan content since I didn't want to replay all the featured episodes again. Works fast if you can find a solid group to grind with.
