I'd suggest making a Federation character and playing through the tutorial. It does a decent job of showing you the basics. The early game is more forgiving. If need be, just think of it as a practice character. Once you learn the basics, you can start toward making the character of your dreams. Once you get started, you'll be in a better place to come back here and ask specific questions. The community is quite helpful.
