You can choose one of three careers when making your character. Tactical, Engineering, and Science.
Tactical officers use high damage powers and kits consisting of damage abilities or grenades. They focus on killing the enemy as quickly as possible. This class is good for beginners as it's the easiest to work with and learn.
Engineering officers focus on system buffing and ground support. They have among the most useful powers but ground combat can be tough as their usually slower with their skills. They can build turrets and drones to assist in combat.
Science officers are the support/medics of STO and in both space and ground focus on debuffing the enemy allowing other friendlies to take them out. They also can heal allies HP and have a versatile space buff set, which can benefit shields and hull, or debuff enemies. They are the most adaptable, but hardest to master career.
