The Tutorial Starship is the first starship that the player serves on. Different storylines lead to players from each faction gaining command of their respective ships during the tutorial-episode.

25th Century Starfleet[edit | edit source]

Federation Tutorial Starship
Default Miranda Class.jpg
Class:
Light Cruiser
Captain:
Taggart
Federation players start out as a Cadet at Starfleet Academy and are subsequently assigned on their first training cruise aboard a Miranda Class-Light Cruiser commanded by Captain Taggart. In “Training Cruise”, the player, as first officer, is given the task to take the ship out of spacedock and onto their destination. En route, the ship gets a distress call from the S.S. Break Even and the ship takes a detour to assist. However the distress call ends up being a ruse for Klingons to board the ship. Eventually, the Klingons are repelled, but at the cost of Cpt. Taggart's life. The player subsequently receives a field promotion to acting Lieutenant by Cpt. Nog of the U.S.S. Chimera and is put in temporary command the ship. Once out of the frying pan, the player's ship gets into the fire when the Borg suddenly attack Vega Colony after passing through the Pollux System. The player assists in the temporary defense and eventual evacuation of the colony. Back at Earth Spacedock, Admiral Quinn confirms the player's previous promotion and permanently places the ship under her/his command.

Captain:
Jurlek
Klingon Empire players start out as the second officer serving aboard a B'rel-class Bird-of-Prey commanded by Captain Jurlek. In “End of Watch”, the ship rendezvous with the I.K.S. Seg'pa, which hands Federation prisoner Franklin Drake over to them. After the USS Musashi suddenly attacks both ships, the player learns of Cpt. Jurlek's treasonous plan to deliberately let the prisoner be freed. After first officer Doran is killed by Jurlek, the player challenges and kills the latter, thereby rightfully gaining command of the vessel. After the Musashi is destroyed, the prisoner is handed over to the authorities in the First City on Qo'noS.

Captain:
Anton Schaefer

Similarly to 25th century characters, a Discovery-era character begin as a senior cadet at Starfleet Academy preparing for their training cruise aboard a light cruiser - a Malachowski-class vessel - commanded by a veteran captain, Anton Schaefer. Their cruise to Vulcan is similarly interrupted by a distress call, from the S.S. Fortuna commanded by Cyrano Jones, and the subsequent battle with Klingon forces results in the death of the captain, leaving the player in command of the ship. They receive a battlefield promotion from another senior captain, Thy'kir Shran of the U.S.S. Sebrova, which is formalized by Admiral Kensington upon the ship's return to Earth.
