The Inventory is both an area where items are stored and a user interface element. It can be accessed by its default key bind "I" or by clicking the inventory button on the Minimap. Your inventory can store most items, including weapons, shields, Data Samples etc.
To divide or break up stacks of items, hold down the Ctrl key whilst dragging the stack to an empty slot.
 Inventory slots
Your inventory (both your personal bank inventory and character inventory) gains more slots as you progress through the game allowing you to store more items.
|Rear Admiral, Lower Half||Brigadier General||66|
|Rear Admiral, Upper Half||Major General|
|Vice Admiral||Lieutenant General||72|
An additional 12 inventory slots (character unlock) can be purchased from the C-Store for 400 , up to three times per character.
The crew button in your personal inventory opens your starships status window allowing you to quickly equip/unequip items from your character, bridge officers, and ship. This button does exactly the same as pressing the U key on your keyboard.
The replicator button at the bottom right of the inventory can be used to buy and sell items whilst aboard your ship. Clicking it opens a Buy/Sell window. Players can sell unwanted items at the replicator and will receive 40% of the items base value.
 Overflow Bag
If an object is being automatically rewarded and there are no inventory slots, an inventory bag will appear where you can claim that item. You cannot choose which items go into the bag and once it is clear, it will not be visible.
