Just a couple of minor updates:
Got my hands on the Tier 2 Escort in order to do some weapons testing and took the opportunity to check the effects of weapon power levels over 100, so have added a new section to the Ship Power Levels article with the results.
Also added a clarification to the turn rate discussion in the Auxiliary Power section regarding throttle levels.

While today’s server maintenance is going on, I managed to pull together various bits of paper scrawled with barely legible results from testing the effects of different power levels on your ship’s four main systems – weapons, shields, engines and auxiliary.
The result is a new article, Ship Power Levels, which tries to answer the question, ‘what do the power levels actually do?’ Hope you find it interesting and/or useful.
As always, feedback, comments, ideas and criticism are gratefully accepted.

The first The Engines Cannae Take It! article is now available.
Character Basics attempts to do what it says on the tin, providing an overview of the character system in Star Trek: Online, including your captain, bridge officers and ship, and explaining several of the less obvious or harder to understand aspects.
As with everything else here, the intention is for the article to grow and expand over time, so I’d be very interested in any feedback, comments, ideas or criticism. Please leave a comment, rate the article, or contact me via private message to BigBadB on the official STO forums.
