Ship Overview Edit

Star Trek Online provides the player with command of a starship which is to some degree customizable. Each new rank will reward the player with access to a new vessel. Players also have the option of purchasing additional ships with either energy credits or dilithium. It is possible to purchase each type of ship available to each rank. There are three categories of vessel for ranks up to Admiral and specialized vessels at the rank of Admiral. These ships are often referred to by tier, a Lieutenant's vessel is a Tier I, a Lieutenant Commander vessel is a Tier II, etc. STO provides a free ship for each 10 levels advanced up to Rear Admiral. There are no free Vice Admiral ships currently available, but are purchasable with Zen from the C-Store Ships category.

Access to a vessel gives you access to all 3 hull types, purchasing a Lieutenant Commander Science Vessel will allow you to render your ship as a Nova hull, Aurora hull, or Quasar hull. Additional modifications can be purchased with Zen from the C-Store and applied in ship customization.
