Experience points, along with expertise Expertise icon.png, are granted by playing almost any content of Star Trek Online, e.g., defeating NPC or player enemies, completing missions/assignments, and so on. Experience points are comparable to those of other MMORPGs in that their accumulation causes the player to level up, i.e., increase in rank.

Experience points are no longer used as "currency" spent in the player's skill tree (comparable to a talent tree). Instead, gaining enough Experience points to level up will earn you Space Points and Ground Points, which are then used to improve and individualize your character.

It will take 366,000 Experience Point icon.png to progress a character to level 50, after which no Space or Ground points are earned as you gain level. With the level 51, Captain Specialization system is unlocked, earning you one Specialization Point each time you fill the XP bar.

Tier 5-U and Tier 6 playable starships can improve its Starship Mastery levels by earning Experience points for every defeated NPC or player enemies in space combat.

Specialization XP and beyond[edit | edit source]

From Level 50 on, character individualization is shifted from the skill tree to the Reputation system and the Captain Specialization, with the latter system using Specialization Points, awarded at each level from 51 to 60. After reaching Level 60 (being the current level cap), Experience Points are called Specialization Experience, and can be earned indefinitely. Every 159,078 Specialization XP grants one additional Specialization Point, using the Experience Point bar to show the character's progression.

Once all Specializations have been purchased (as of August 2015, there are 105 specialization points total, therefore one would need to fill their skill bar an additional 95 times), any surplus points earned are converted into dilithium ore Dilithium Ore icon.png. The rate is 2,880 Dilithium Ore icon.png per surplus point which is automatically credited to your character's supplies at the time your experience bar fills and also automatically resets the meter. Note that some surplus points may be accumulated after the maximum before this begins happening (~4). This number is variable because some methods of gaining Specialization points, such as from special event reward boxes and the Federation Admiralty Tour of Duty, will not be recognized for conversion to ore and will simply add more points to your surplus.

Note[edit | edit source]

  • According to this forum post, for each skill point you receive in-game the game server internally records 100 to make sure that small bonuses accumulate correctly.
