    New recruit to House Metak here.

    I'm recently returned to the game after a long absence because I missed the fun of space combat. The last time I played, Legacy of Romulus was brand new, and the last content I remember playing was on Nukara Prime. Needless to say the game has changed quite a bit since then.

    The overload of information is pretty massive so what I'm aiming to do is focus on putting together a core ship gear set, built around disruptor beams, that I can freely swap between a few battle cruisers and maybe a larger ship like a Martok Class. I currently have a Kurak and I sprung for the Legendary D7 since it's half off. I also have the M'Chala BoP from the recruit event but I'm not particularly interested in it.

    I typically play late at night and in the wee hours of the morning (U.S. Central Time) and am looking forward to meeting people in the fleet

    There are people from several continents and time zones in the community so it is very likely that you will find someone online on the times you play.

    Now, bring glory to you and to your house.

    Hi Koroth, welcome to UFPlanets Community and back to STO.

    For a returning player you do have heaps of content to engage and explore. Just make sure you have the chat channel as notified to you on your character invite thread, as that's one of the primary source of communication in-game. You can also find fellow members on our TeamSpeak in the "Battle Bridge" channel lately to speak to as you play the game.

    One of the things that helped me after a multi\year absence was to look at some of the high end build in the Builders thread and research the pieces of equipment listed. At the time almost all of it was new to me, so looking it up on the STO wikia gave me insights to the content each was being pulled from.
