Starship traits

From Star Trek Online Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Starship traits are unlockable by either advancing through the Starship Mastery tiers of different Tier 6 starships, or by advancing through a Captain Specialization.

A trait unlocked by specific Tier 6 starships is consequently available only to the faction the starship is available to. By default, each player has four trait slots available; 1 extra slot is purchasable at the Fleet Research Lab. Like all other traits, starship traits can be reassigned in-game anywhere within social hubs or in sector space.
