Klingon playable starships are principally warships, though despite this there is a broad range of Klingon ships currently available in Star Trek Online. There are four categories of starships, and each starship has multiple variants and differing statistics depending on the type and tier of vessel.
Playable Starships in Star Trek Online are as much a part of your avatar as your Captain. They are highly customizable, both cosmetically and functionally. Visiting shipyards will allow players to change all aspects of their ships. Each ship tier includes multiple classes of ships.
This page lists graphical tier charts for all playable starships in Star Trek Online. Detailed and sortable lists can be found at Federation playable starship and Klingon playable starship. This ranked / tiered ship chart was created to give players a quick graphical reference to every playable Federation ship...
Factions are major powers in Star Trek Online. While many factions are encountered in PVE missions, only three factions are currently playable. Players start with the ability to create a Federation, Klingon or Romulan character from one of the pre-set species or a customizable Alien race.
