In order.

-Story missions, Doff missions, Patrol missions, Fleet actions.

-Current highly rated science vessels is the Vesta 3 pack. You can get one alone but you don't get all the neat consoles and all three skins. Unless you want to tank than the Nebula is good too. Although people would say to get a Recluse because its a better nebula and a carrier.

-Besides working for very rares via "lolbignumbers Escorts scatter volly", it is possible to get 2nd or 3rd for rares. You can also make alot of money via Tour of the Galaxy. If you want a consistant way, just do breen missions and sell the ship parts for cash.

-As for dilithium, there are too many ways to count. Investigate officer reports, dilithium mining, doff missions (turn in contraband being a favorite), fleet actions, acadamy event, lore quiz, reputation system, several daliy missions, and selling zen for dilithium. Those are the things off the top of my head so far.

I've played with science ships since I started on STO, with 4 VA characters now. Feel free to pm me and ask questions if you'd like, on Steam on in game @rimmer47

Vesta is the go to science vessel for it's versatility, the ability to equip DHCs, and a hanger to boot.

The D'kyr is a very science heavy vessel but its alright. Comes with a healer that doubles as a playable shuttle. Most don't really fly it so if you want a ship thats rare to see, the D'kyr is your ship. Makes for another good support ship.

The Atrox is pretty good if you can deal with it's turn rate. Has good damage too seeing that people like their fighters. What it has over the D'kyr is it's Lt cmd slot so it adds another great science ability to your ship. So its a good support ship with a sleek look.

I don't really fly carriers though. So I can't give you a good opinion on how they handle and how effective they are.

If you're already bored of your level 50, why would you want to RUSH another character up to max level? Makes no sense to me...
Natsuyaki Rinko Feb 17, 2013 @ 10:54pm 
@ hunter i will thanks for your reply
@ Yoshi ahh, but it's pretty exspensive 5000 Zen for all three..hmm
@ Tieks the thing is, it's more fun when you have unlocked everything. with my tactical it's boring cause i played it all the time. I wanna try an diffrent role in game play.

What is the best ship/pack worth getting on the Zen store? depsite any class ?

Zaniaac Feb 18, 2013 @ 10:26am 
The Long Range Science Vessel Retrofit is really good. its ability of the Ablative hull generator is really useful in close pitches in PVE's.
Natsuyaki Rinko Feb 18, 2013 @ 10:47am 
hmm, alot of people saying Vesta is the best way to go. Cause it can load up cannon and so on.

on the forums people also say that Sci is being nerfed to death only Engi and Tac are alive.. To bad...

i will take things in to consideration. might still get the D'Kyr none the less. I dont want to see any Vulcan flying anything but that :D i hope they bring out a Vulcan Pack out :D

Science captains use to be pretty powerful before it went F2P and Cruisers use to need alot of teamwork to take out. Engineers have it bad because alot of their abilitys are on shared cool down. But you can still make it work out. The only classs that has hardly been touched are the Tacticals but im not going to dwell on all the rumors surrounding why that it.

Until then, I wish you luck.

Thank you for your help, i'll see how things go. So far i hear there are graphical glitches on the ship. I dont want to pay good money on a ship that has bad graphics

On which ship?
Natsuyaki Rinko Feb 18, 2013 @ 10:55pm 
on the D'kyr
Yoshiblue Feb 19, 2013 @ 12:46am 
Not sure about the D'kyr. Haven't heard issue about it at all. Looks fine whenever I see it.
