« on: 16 January 2010 04:43 PM »
Ok quick first question. 

I got through the tutorial (beat up some of these guys  :startrek006:) and went to the starbase. Got a second BO.  But now how do I find them and assign them. 

ALso, How do i put more weapon,console, type slots in.  I do not understand that all yet.

On the first tier ships, you only get 1 of each type of console, so you can only equip one tactical console, one engineering console, and one science console.

On the Bridge Officer question - I'm not sure, but I'm sure someone will answer that soon!

When you press 'U', select the 'Assignments' tab in the menu that pops up. There you can assign bridge officers to consoles and also modify your standard away team.

When you get a BO, it is automatically assigned to his place (if it is empty) and you can use his/her skill in space.

If it is not, I believe it should be used as above mentioned (through assignment screen)

To equip a starship (with looted equipment), you must be in space (haven't tried it while on ground):
open your inventory (key 'i')
Open your starship (i use 'k' then navigate to U.S.S xxxxx and select STATUS on screen; don't know the shortcut yet)

using the mouse, just drag and drop appropriate stuff to your starship slots.
If you want to buy equipment first, go to Sol system, dock, go to shipyard and purchase whatever you can afford.

Equipment in-game can be found (loot), purchased or won through successful mission completion.
