Advanced Research Vessel
This real-world currency was previously called Cryptic Points (February 2010 - February 2011, August 2011 - July 2012) and Atari Tokens (February - August 2011), before being renamed Zen. The conversion rate was $1.00 USD = 100 = 80 .
Since Season 5, players could also use the Dilithium Exchange to trade Cryptic Points for refined dilithium or vice versa, at a player-determined rate (kept within a range of 50-500 dilithium per Cryptic Point). Since Season 6, this dilithium exchange range is now 25-500 dilithium per zen.
They have a variety of functions, including purchasing races, ship classes, and costumes. It is not uncommon for 'free to play' games to sell equipment that gives buyers an edge over other players for real world cash in order to fund the game, and most 'pay to play' games have a system where players can buy aesthetic items, name changes, server transfers, and other equipment and services which don't directly affect game play. In some cases, zen are the only way to access many ship classes, such as the NX Class Light Escort or the Oberth Class Light Science Vessel.

The Advanced Research Vessel is a Commander (Tier 3) level Federation Science Vessel. Known as the new "workhorse" of the Federation, this ship type has been in Starfleet service since 2363. This class of vessel replaced the Miranda class as the multi-purpose mission vessel, taking on various tasks from patrols to humanitarian or diplomatic missions, exploration and research duties.
Nebula classNebula class is an iconic 24th century design and sibling to the Galaxy class. It is no smaller than the Galaxy class, consisting largely of the same structural components in largely the same configuration, though it is more specialized than the Galaxy.
The Advanced Research Science Vessel gains 250 crew, but loses some maneuverability, due to its lower turn rate. Unlike its counterpart, the Ensign bridge officer slot is universal, allowing the player better diversity. Also different from its counterpart is that it gains another ability, in addition to the Science Vessel's normal subsystem targeting abilities. This makes the Advanced Research Science Vessel especially adept at sensing abilities, including cloak detection. These ships have more crew than the Research Science Vessel, and though they share the same hull strength, they lack in turn rate.
Federation starships come with standard equipment and weapons of the lowest mark available at the ship's minimum rank. The items provided are appropriate to the type of vessel and its related playing style.
Federation Science vessels come with built-in abilities. These abilities do not automatically rank up when acquiring higher tier Science starships and must be gained through Tactical Space Bridge officer abilities.

After activating a subsystem targeting ability, the player will have 30 seconds to attack an enemy ship with any form of beam weapon. The attack will lower power to that system, and have a small chance of completely taking the system offline. If the system is taken offline it renders all abilities that use that subsystem temporarily inert. For example, if you target the shields and subsequently take them offline, then all of the enemies shield facings will go down.
The Sensor Analysis passive ability grants the player a stacking damage bonus of 3.33% per minute against a single target whilst the player maintains target lock on an enemy. Once the player switches targets the bonus is reset.
Tachyon Detection Field gives the ship a strong boost to sensing abilities, as well as a small one to cloak detection.
