i've been pretty pumped for Star Trek Online for about...4 years now.
but something just occured to me. i've never played an MMO before.
i dont know the first thing about how they work (i've played a few RPGs before), what guilds are, what character to choose, what faction, going on raids......

do you think you could help me out?
my room mate told me to get the best type of character and level it up. i know there will be security, medical, engineering.....maybe some others....but what do they really DO? how different would the gameplay be if i picked one class over the other?
i was actually worried my ignorance would allow me to make all the worst choices, and i wouldn't enjoy the game and suck at.

any advice for a newbie?

1st thing you should do is go here:

http://www.mmorpg.com/index.cfm?bhcp=1

There you can find info on just about every MMO on the market.

On that same site they also link you to free MMOs. If you want to see how a few work, maybe that would be a go place to start.

I've never played one either, and I've been pumped up about this one for a while. I also didn't know this board existed!
