Starship Mastery is a form of leveling progression tied to a specific tier 5-U or 6 playable starship.

Levels

Tier EXP required Cumulative
1 3,750
2 5,000 8,750
3 6,875 15,625
4 9,375 25,000
5 12,500 37,500
6 53,125 90,625

As your captain gains experience points in space combat, your starship will also gain Starship Mastery experience points. Earned experience points roll over, so if you require 100 experience points to get to the next level, but earn 200 experience points, then you will complete that level and have 100 towards the next level.

Levels 1-4

Levels 1 through to 4 are a linear tree of 4 successively unlocked passive bonuses tied to the specific ship. In essence, achieving a higher level of mastery on a specific ship increases the stats of said ship. This mastery does not carry over to other characters on the same account who also have that ship. Each starship type, e.g., Science Vessels, Warbirds, Birds-of-Prey, has the same level I-IV unlocks, which will therefore be geared more towards defensive, supportive, or offensive bonuses.

These levels are available to all Tier 5-U and Tier 6 ships. Most tier 5 ships can be upgraded to tier 5-U with a Starship Upgrade Requisition, which unlocks the ship's Mastery tree, albeit without the final trait. Some ships (such as low-tier ships, and one-time freebies, like the Obelisk Carrier) can't be upgraded to T5-U. Lobi, Lockbox, Promotional, and Event ships (such as the Sarr Theln) can all be upgraded to T5-U for free. By being upgraded to T5-U, they gain an extra console, more health, and the level I-IV Mastery bonuses.

Level 5

A fifth level is present on non-fleet Tier 6 ships. This level, when completed, unlocks a starship trait for that character, which can then be slotted regardless of the ship being used by the player. This trait is not tied to the ship itself once obtained, and will only take effect if you slot it.

Level 6

There are currently two different versions of Level 6 mastery, both of which have an account-wide effect. The sixth tier only needs to be reached once; while other characters flying the ship will be able to earn Starship Mastery toward level 6 again, this is just for show.
