:: sigh ::

Everything was going great today and I was really looking forward to playing a little STO and I was just about to sit down at the keyboard when, as if from no where, a coconut struck me in the head. Except for a tiny bump on the top of my head, I'm sure I'll be fine, but for one thing: I've forgotten, completely, how to play STO. Years of game play tactics and techniques are all gone - Vanish - from my head. I mean, right down to the basics. I need a fast tutorial or I can't play today.

btw - For those of you concerned for my health, I've seen my Doctor and he assures me I'll be fine just as soon as he can figures out the exact, right place to hit my head again with an anti-amnesia coconut. He is pretty sure the local pharmacist has one in stock, so I'll should be fine by tomorrow or the next day at the lastest, but, as I said, I could really use your help TODAY.

Like I said, I need a fast tutorial on the basics. So hit me with it. Load me me up with all of the top tactics and techniques you think every beginner needs to know to play STO the best way for the best beginner results.

Boldly go where no schwartz has gone before.

    If you have a empty character slot, you can play through the tutorial again.

    For anything more advanced than that, there are guides in the Academy section to help.

    So, you need a tactical Coconut?, i think that goes to the Infinity Lockbox. Anyway, there is some web pages, and a lot of post in the forum with some tactics, very good read, btw. Also, i think the title is a little vague, you should change it to avoid been locked down.. :blush:

    There should be an international foolish day or something where we can all come together for situations like this.

    Just put Beam Arrays on a ship and set to Auto fire and you'll be all set. ;)

    I must ask, the coconut that encounered your noggin, was it carried by an african or european swallow?

    European. I did not actually see them, but I heard their outrageous accents.

    Like special weapons from other Star Trek games? Wondering if they can be replicated in STO even a little bit? Check this out: https://forum.arcgames.com/startrekonline/discussion/1262277/a-mostly-comprehensive-guide-to-star-trek-videogame-special-weapons-and-their-sto-equivalents

    Well, sure we were just humoring the old guy as we figured he wasn't fully right in the head after the accident.

    Another thing to do to get you fully back into the game is roll one of those Horta Captains. They pretty much take care of everything for you.

    Wow! Those Horta Captains are really versatile.
    Oh, and don't worry. I'm not going let this happen again. I just ordered a Coconut Protection Helmet.
