    This game's pretty good up until you hit Lieutenant Commander.

       Then it becomes fucking amazing.

    The Foundry dailies, do the ones made by The Grand Nagus. They're fun, well made and short.

    There's a quest called "Investigate Officer Reports" or something to that effect. Complete three community made quests and you get a metric ton of dilithium.

    So the one thing I hate about this game is the way loot works.

    I'm level 17 or 18 and there's no point in me doing anything but selling all the gear I can and not trying to get better loot because it's constantly getting better and it seems like you can get to endgame pretty fast.

    And I die constantly but I'm an escort so weeeeee.

    A Will and a Barclay is probably one of the best player missions I've ever seen.

    This is by far the best MMO for "I don't have a lot of time, take me to the action."

    Plus, I love the crew functions and I love how I actually feel like a captain of my own ship.

    I was playing a few months ago with a free train account, and log back in because I heard about the anniversary event, get the quest late enough that by the time I can redo it, the vent will be over, and I choose that mystery box because I thought it was the "main" item, and just got a crappy shield.

    One of the devs said when he tested the mission he was Level 7

    I'm guessing it will be level 6-7+ like all the other FEs were. Then when the first run is over then they're going to add it to the normal progression which would be sometime after March

    Downloading now, I remember the beta space combat being good but the ground stuff really boring. How much of each do I have to do?

    Fleet actions, you'll get some good loot too.

    Edited:

    Majority of the game is Space but the ground combat has been improved a ton since beta so you should be fine.

    Wow, I really like this game. The space combat reminds me of EVE with more emphasis on placement, and performing broadsides is extremely satisfying. The ground stuff is a neat mix of MMO and third person shooter. Having a lot of fun right now.

    Looks like the dev's are taking a page from TF2.

    Starting after the maintenance this Thursday (February 9, 2012), a new item will begin dropping as loot in the game. This item is called a Cardassian Lock Box.

    When a Cardassian Lock Box is opened, it will grant the character that opens it a random reward. These rewards range from a rare starship, to some great new items. The possible rewards are:
    To open one of the Lock Boxes, a character will also need an item called a Master Key. Master Keys can be purchased in the C-Store for 100 CP, or in a 10-pack for 900 CP. If you attempt to open a Lock Box without a Master Key, you will get a message explaining that you need one. If you have more than one Master Key, then only one key will be consumed each time you open a Lock Box.

    Great way for them to earn some extra money, and considering that CP can be easily bought now which is getting cheaper by the day, doesn't matter much.

    You can get Cryptic Points without paying for them with real money though, right? By exchanging dilithium for them? I know pretty much nothing about the game though, so correct me if I'm wrong.

    Yeah but 1CP goes for about 190D in the market, though iirc it's expected to deflate quite a bit as time goes by.

    The pricing was around 250D when the F2P update came out.

    If a dev breathes on someone the wrong way they all start bitching. Eventually most of them get over it.
