crafting is very disapointing , its handy for equipping low level characters but once you hit vice admiral everything you get from crafting is pretty worthless , you can get better stuff from the exchange , the good gear in the game you can only get from doing the reps and the really good stuff is all to be found in fleet stores ,

Crafting is pretty much non-existent. To max out your 'crafting level' literally takes just minutes and perhaps 200-300k EC.

The closest thing we have to 'crafting' as seen in other MMOs are the Reputation projects... input various stuff... get various output. That's it.

Actually, the craftable Aegis Set is pretty nice, epsecially since you can use it for your shuttle once you got Fleet Gear for your ship.

The Aegis and the mark X kits are worth it. Everything else you can find in drops, buy it from stores or from the exchange and even from replaying some of the campaign missions.

http://sto.gamepedia.com/Aegis - for a look at the Aegis and costs.

For shields specifically, http://sto.gamepedia.com/Ship_Shields

... and you'd want the MACO Resilient version usually. Or just pick a normal one off the Exchange. A Resilient Mk 12 with [cap]x3 usually costs the same as it's 'list price'. A [cap]x2 is even cheaper.

See why crafting is kinda 'dead'? A Res Mk 12 with [cap]x3 will usually cost a LOT less than crafting an Aegis Covariant. It's not that the crafted items are bad. It's that they have stopped improving or adding items that can be crafted in favour of the newer Reputation/etc. There's been quite a lot of newer stuff that's come out that's cheaper (free) and of superior quality.

Crafted stuff goes up to at best, blue or purple mk 11 quality. So unless you want the specific look (Aegis set gives your ship a unique look) or that specific set bonus powers...

One possible use for getting your crafting level up... a special pet you can get from http://sto.gamepedia.com/Mission:_Mine_Enemy

As for other 'accessories', just be a nice person ingame and ask for an invite to someone else's Starbase or Embassy. Shop at their stores for better stuff.
