Help! ok i started playing a very long time ago. I "played" for more than a week and like nothing started. I quitted the game. Now months later i want to start again. But i am inside some space-station, have no names to contact, no idea what to do. Help!?
To suggest with I would try to find out how to get off the ship you are on. You may be able to do this as you will be able to see the type and name of the entity you are onboard from your position page.
You could then make a post in the traders lounge seeking the owners of that station if the name does give it away.
Once you know who owns it and where it is, you could do one of several things:
1. Join the faction who owns the station
or 2. Ask a transport faction to come and pick you up and take you to a planet.
At that point you are again in a position to start any career you wish as either a freelance trader or faction employee (the latter more suited to a newer player). While you are on the station though it may be worth having a peek at the characters onboard the station and see if you can find a brawler who has been abandoned by its owner until your lift arrives.
Hrm? No it doesn't. The "drop character" option only appears if you've been arrested for longer than three weeks, not if you're just stranded. You do indeed need to contact the faction to arrange for transport, or at least to receive your location so you can hire someone to transport you. It's pretty inexpensive.
As to starting over, you would need to be die (or be held under arrest for three weeks) in order to drop your character.
