The quality of an item (sometimes also referred to as rarity or color) in Star Trek Online indicates not only how rare it is to find it in-game, but in many cases it represents how many modifiers an item has. The color of the item's name represents the quality. These can be seen when viewing an item's tooltip pop-up, from the color of linked items in the chat window, or the type of item container from a drop. On item tooltips it generally also prints out the quality in word format, normally on the second line; for example, the second line of an item may say “Rare Ship Engineering Console”. The greater the item quality, the more modifiers the item has, and the more damage it does.

Unique Items[edit | edit source]

Unique items are limited to a single copy of the item per character. Unique items can be of any level of quality ranging from Common to Epic. Some items are listed as Unique as a part of their description, whereas others are de facto Unique items since they can be obtained only once from Missions or the C-Store. Most of the pre-order bonus items are de facto Unique items.
