Budget Build for Newbies

For every toon that has good gear and a lot of resources pumped into them, there are two who are barely developed. Lt. Adam Kunzel is one of my newest toons, and also one who has very little resources dedicated to him. His entire build is done on the cheap, but for what he is, Adam is not ineffectual. I thought I’d use him as a template and write a guide for new STO players, on one possible setup for an inexpensive endgame ship.

Son’a Dreadnaught (Ugh, another R&D Exclusive Ship)

Son’a Dreadnought coming to another R&D promotion.

If you want this guy here, be prepared to shell out some cold, hard EC.

Big Ships, Little Ships (Random Ideas)

Have you sat in ESD orbit and checked other player ships around you? I do that a lot. And when you check them, the only ship information you get are the ship’s name, ship class (when it’s displayed correctly) and its hull value. While hull value is hardly the end-all-be-all stat, it does give you a rough idea of how tough that ship is.
