This unlocks one additional device slot, a universal console slot, and one additional starship trait slot on the starship of choice. An “-X” designation will also be appended to the current class name, for example a Fleet Avenger Battlecruiser (T6) would become a Fleet Battlecruiser [T6-X].
As with the Starship Upgrade Requisitions, Experimental Ship Upgrades are applied account-wide, allowing other copies of that ship to be upgraded to experimental status for free.

In order to apply this token, you must be at a Ship Selector available in most social zones, generally near the Ship and Shuttle Requisitions vendor. Navigate to your ship's Starship Mastery status window to perform the upgrade.
They can be purchased at the Zen Store for 1000 for one, or 2000 for three, and these can be traded or sold to other players, so they may be found on the exchange under the "Starship Upgrade" tab.
