    Is it wise to make a Dominion toon my main toon? I'm torn between my Vanguard Jem and a Romulan toon, because I've decided I need to restart a toon to do things right from the get go.

    Depends if you've played the game before i'd say.

    Jem'hadar toons start at Lvl 60 so you skip a lot of the lower level stuff. This may seem great at first but a lot of the game's systems are much easier to get used to when going through the lower levels. Things like understanding power levels, healing, which weapons suit you best, trying boff powers etc.
    Jumping straight in at 60 can lead to some fights being tough if you don't fully grasp the mechanics.

    But if you've played it all before then sure, why not. It skips a lot of repetitive leveling so could be a bit better for repeated toon creation.

    Romulan side has easier access to the DPS Romulan Bridge Officers of Romulan Operative.

    Each faction has their own starter story, I personally like the Romulan one more.

    In case of Jem Hadar characer - after starter toon you are immediately jumped to Lvl 50 after the starter story.

    So that's all the stuff you need to know about it all.

    I like my main original STO tactical officer as my main, only one I even have mk15 stuff for, or even rep stuff for. All these new toons, delta, aoy, jem'hadar are all if I'm bored with my main for a min. But I always go back to my main eventually, I did also discover newbishly, that if you've had a delta or aoy toon lvl'd you get a ton of goodies from a temporal dude at the admirals office on ESD Big Grin

    Okay, I've seen delta toon thrown around, what is that? And I've played the game for a while now, I was just wondering if there was anything important that I would miss if I started out as a Jem'Hadar.

    - - - Updated - - -

    It's unfortunate, because I like Romulan ships, but I loove Dominion ships, but being just Jem'Hadar is boring and there are precious few Dominion ships, but I loove the Borg, but I'm poor (no sub for me ;P ) so I'm just conflicted all around.

    A Vanguard Jem'Hadar is very good, but not as good as Romulan on the other side you start at Level 60 if you do something however aligned it to the KDF as you get access to all the good stuff to a very cheap price compared to FED.

    Delta-Toons is short for a Toon created during the Delta Rising Recruitment Event.

    Probably yes.

    1) They have more "faction" specific designs of ships to play with, i.e. the proper Romulan designs. So for anyone wanting that real Romulan feel that's better than the mediocre selection the Dominion have (though they can fly their chosen faction's ships).

    2) They have access to more powerful bridge officers in the form of Superior Romulan Operatives, plus their innate bonus to critical hits etc makes them the hardest hitting potential characters.

    I have a Rom-Alien Tac Toon aligned with the Klingons, while it lacks the romulan trait, it makes up for it with the Extra Trait Slots and access to Romulan Boffs.

    Vanguard Jem'Hadar are on a very good 2nd place and you will only notice a difference if you are min/maxer looking for the most DPS you can get.

    Okay. I'm not a hardcore min-maxer, and I do prefer the Dominion lore wise to the Romulans.... I might make my main toon a Vanguard Jem'Hadar, but now I need to decide who to align with. People seem to say that the Klingons get you better resources.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Also, how difficult is it to obtain a Jem'Hadar Dreadnaught Carrier by trading? Is it something people don't trade very often? I really like big ships and carriers, and some websites say that the Jem'Hadar Dreadnaught Carrier is a really good one.

    Well if you're going more loreish, the KDF would be your only choice as the Jem'Hadar only saw Klingons as worthy enough to challenge to a fight.

    The resources are the same. However certain consoles are much cheaper on the exchange for KDF - yes indeed. KDF has a great starter Klingon lore/story as well. It's really up to you and what you think is best for you. It's no secret fed side indeed has more players for end-game teaming up.
