Star Trek Online will let you level with a T6 ship ‘very soon’


Considering how quickly you can level up in Star Trek Online these days (thanks, duty officers!), transferring to new ships every 10 levels has become far more of an annoyance than a delicious carrot to chase. Cryptic must think so too, as the studio is bringing a change “very soon” to allow players to stick with the same Tier 6 ship from the start through the endgame.

There are a couple of caveats with this change that require your attention. First and most obvious, you have to have a Tier 6 ship unlocked to engage in this (and if you don’t have one, you can earn a free T6 by participating in dailies right now). Second, your starship’s power and available slots will be scaled down to your level and only be fully unlocked when you reach the cap.

“Removing level restrictions on so many premium starships allows us to eliminate a barrier that was keeping many players from immediately being able to fly and appreciate the ships they had won or purchased, whether that was from the C-Store, a lockbox, or from the Exchange,” Cryptic said. “And by replacing the standard issue equipment with gear that scales along with you, we are removing some of the further pain points of using these scaling ships as you level up, as any gear you haven’t been able to upgrade with drops or mission rewards, will at least stay level-appropriate.”
