Im lvl 8 at the mo and have decided i want to go down the Escort route. Any idea what skills I should be selecting? or what sort of strategy i should be adopting when selecting skills? I seem to have adopted a generic approach ticking a little of everything but have prioritised high yield lvl1 and Jamming sensors lvl1 and emergency power to Shields lvl1.

I also want to use the Rapid Fire ability as I read that will suit my game but don't know how to activate it. I think, i can't, until i reach the next level (lt.cmdr) and promote my tactical officer. Then, i can get 2 officer abilities, that right? At the minute my tactical officer is trained to high yield lvl1 to skill level 9.

Don't really know what I should be doing here!

Also, if someone can tell me, where is the best place to try and pick up a quantum launcher? Can't find one for love nor money in the pre headstart. Got a couple in Open Beta and that was at lvl 4. Nothing in the Exchange/ Merchents

Thanks guys

A little bit of nitpicking: Those are powers, not skills. Skills are the things you put points in (to improve your powers). But your power-selection is pretty good, i used exactly the same.

Each officer has 2 powers for each rank (1 ground, 1 space), but only the powers that are usable at the officers rank are active. So to use a Lt power, you need to promote your officer to Lt (which means you need to be a Lt. Cmdr.) and seat the officer in a Lt-level bridge-seat (the first tier Escorts have one such slot, for a Tactical officer).

Thanks for that.

Looking into my tactical officer more closely, i don't think she has the ability to use Rapid Fire. Can I train her up in it or do I have to requisite a new officer that has high yield/ rapid fire capabilities?
