A Guide for Beginers


I started this Blog because I've found that there is a real lack of useful information with well-reasoned opinions for players of Star Trek Online to figure out how to succeed at challenging content or just improve their characters. On this site, I want to provide information on how to generally improve your character/gameplay. I'll be posting conceptual ideas, tips, tricks, and even character build guides. The build guides will likely be a big help as they will provide in-depth information about how to build a solid character.

If you already are in the 75k DPS channel or have billions of Energy Credits stored in Keys and/or other commodities, this site won't help you and, frankly, it's not intended to. Why would such a person need help? It's for people who are struggling with content or just want to know how to get better. I'm here to help.

Recommended Ships

This is NOT the end-all-be-all list of ships you can do good DPS with in STO. Truthfully, gear makes as much, if not more, of a difference than the ship you choose. However, some are better suited to maximizing certain builds or are just straight-forward/easy to build.

I'll make a separate category for each faction and for each faction's ships that are good for the popular Aux 2 Bat builds. (If a ship is listed twice, that means it fits both A2B and standard builds.) I'll also note if a Dual Beam Banks (DBBs) or Beam Arrays (BAs) work especially well on that particular ship. (If I don't list one or the other, I'm saying it can use either.)
