I picked Command. Only because I couldn't pick more than one option. If I couldn't be in command right away (which is really the way it should be) then I would want to be in either Science or Tactical.

I have to say I would love Command, but at the same time, if they do it right, for example, if you get something to upgrade your ship, you need to find a way to install it, maybe devise work around, etc, in a nutshell, the level of interaction, I would have to say Engineering.

I can see the excitement of tactical, destroying the enemy and neutralising threats, aswell as engineering and helm and all that, but if i had to choose i would go for command i guess.

Sorry for double post, but it just occurred to me that most officers switch to command later on in their career, and thats why they have the extra engineering skills for example.

if it is entirly possible i would really love to continue to create my Cheif of Security Tellarite  :muaha:

something about that races screams underdog and i want to be the best underdog haha plus i prefer combat than engineer, science, medical and command although if i would be able to have a sub-class aswell it would be engineering so that i could tinker around with the guns :)

Since Medical wasn't an option I picked science, although they're not the same. I've always been a Medic/Healer/Doctor whatever you want to call it in MMOs and will continue that tradition in STO. Although it will be interesting to find out if there will be a hybrid  class system as there was in SWG, where I was a Doctor/Rifleman and then later a Combat Medic/Pistoleer. I've always liked being the person who ends up saving the guy with the big guns..  :wink:

I voted sciences.  The best aspect of ST to me is sense of exploration.  It's limited or altogether missing in later series, but in the original series you had the real sense they they were really out there in the unknown, encountering entirely new situations.  A key component of understanding (and thereby avoiding a gruesome death) was the ability of Spock to understand each new challenge, and often to devise a strategy.
