In the event that you are refering to warzones: There's a small button (has the symbol of the faction you're on) next to your mini map. Click it and you'll get the warzone window, in which you can queue up. In addition to simply playing warzones there's a daily warzone mission (and also a weekly one once you reach lvl 50), which you can pick up at the mission box in the combat/pvp area on the fleet.

and don't forget to swap gear into the PVP one. Free Recurit is available once you hit lvl 50.
Not sure how does it look in lower levels.
Dark side is a pathway to many abilities, some consider to be unnatural.

Okay so if I understand this correctly, since I play the the PvE server the PvP modes are actually the Warzone missions . Now Is that the same for Flashpoints - are they PvP as well? Sorry I'm a total noob to MMO's.

Not entirely true. You are correct that Warzones are the primary aspect of PvP on a PvE server.

However, on any PvE server you can "flag" your character as PvP. If you right-click your character portrait a menu will appear; one of the options is flag for PvP. What this means, is that even though you are on a PvE server you have "authorized" PvP action at any time. You can also simply attack an opposing faction character that is flagged PvP and you will be flagged for PvP.

If you want to disable that flag you have to right-click your portrait again, select unflag for PvP, and then go to a "safe zone" (Fleet, or your ship) for five minutes.

The difference between PVP and PVE servers is that on shared planets, where players from both factions are on the planet at the same time, you can attack enemy players whenever you want if you're on a PVP server. On PVE servers, this doesn't happen. If you come across a enemy player on a PVE server, you can't attack them.

Both PVE and PVP servers have warzones, which are specialised PVP instances. You fight the enemy players and attempt to complete specific objectives.
Flashpoints are instanced PVE content, you fight computer-controlled enemies.

There are areas on shared planets that will flag you for PvP, but you get a 10 second warning to turn around. Watch out for high level jerks who like to trick lower level players into flagging and then kill them. (If your hit someone that's flagged, you are auto flagged. Don't revive, or heal, or buff one of your own faction, either.)

Flashpoints and Heroics are all PvE, and Operations are large scale PvE instances (8 or 16 person).
