Getting Started With Star Trek Fleet Command Basics

Star Trek Fleet Command guide: tips, cheats & strategies - MrGuider (1)⇒One of the main in-game currency in Star Trek Fleet Command game is Latinum. You can use this currency to build, upgrade, and research instantly. The game will give you this in-game currency as a reward upon leveling up or from other events(daily goals, missions). Since it’s a premium in-game currency, it’s hard to get. If you are a f2p player, then you should spend it wisely.

⇒Your objective in this game is to increase the home-station power. You can check the power at the top-left corner on the home station screen(interior). To increase the power, you will build, upgrade the buildings at home station, discover new technologies in the R & D Department and by upgrading the ships, officer, drydock. In all these upgrades, you will need a lot of resources; Parsteel, Tritanium, Dilithium, and more.

⇒The player produces these resources at home-station. The main building at the home-station is Operations – Command Center. Upgrading it unlocks new buildings, upgrades, features, and much more. The maximum level of this building is 50 and at each level, you get the weapon damage bonus.

Get To Know About Station

Your station is in the galaxy, in a random system. You can relocate it to one of the station hub’s slots. Relocating is like teleporting the base from one system to another, from a station’s hub to another station’s hub. It will cost you a relocation token. You get this item for free when you start the game. Since you have only one(you can get more relocation tokens from the free chests/daily), use it wisely. To relocate, go to the galaxy screen -> choose a system -> enter system/view -> tap a planet -> relocate. Let’s learn step-by-step:

Guide To Ships And Drydocks In Star Trek Fleet Command

At the beginning of the game, you have two drydocks(Drydock A and Drydock B) in your fleet; so you can only assign up to two ships(Ship A and Ship B) in the fleet. If you want to assign more ships, you will have to build drydock. At the bottom of the screen, tap the locked; Drydock C option -> locate -> complete the requirements to build.

Assigning The Ship To A Drydock

To assign a ship to drydock, tap the + button at the bottom of the screen -> assign ship -> select a ship to assign.

Learn To Swap The Ships

If you have already assigned the ship to available slots and want to change, then swap that ship. Tap the ship at the bottom of the screen -> manage -> on the left side of the screen, you will see the option “swap ship”. Tap it and choose a ship. Note – You must recall the ship to the home station and repair it. Otherwise, you would not see the swap button.

Guide To Manufacturing Ships In Star Trek Fleet Command

Having multiple ships in the fleet helps you a lot. You can send one ship to mine resources in the system, another ship to attack ship/station. The game gives you one ship for free when you start the game. After it, you will have to build the ships.

To level up the ship, you need Ship XP. Ship XP can be obtained from the missions, daily goals, events. Ships can also earn EXP from the battles or other tasks(mining). For example; if it’s a war-ship, then battle hostiles to grant it EXP. If it’s a mining type ship, then send it to mine resources. Sometimes, the game grants EXP.


On the same screen, tap the + button -> upgrade. You can obtain parts for the ships; explorer, battleship, interceptor and more by destroying the hostiles.

Getting Parts In Star Trek Fleet Command

As you progress through the game or level up, things will change. You will need to power-up the ships to dominate in the PvP mode or keep the station safe. To tier up or increase the level cap of a ship, you need parts; explorer parts, battleship parts, interceptor parts. These parts come in various grades, for example; 3-star interceptor parts, 2-star interceptor parts, 1-star battleship parts, 2-star explorer parts.

You can get these parts from the PvE chests or mega chests. All you need to do is destroy the hostiles in systems. For 2-star parts, we would recommend you to defeat level 10-20 hostiles. For 3-star parts, we would recommend you to defeat level 21+ hostiles.

Attacking Guide For Newbies

Star Trek Fleet Command guide: tips, cheats & strategies - MrGuider (5)You can attack ships as well as stations. But in the early game, you have only one option; hostiles. Reach the level 15 to become eligible to attack other player’s station. You can loot resources by invading enemies’ base.

Mining Guide For Beginners In Star Trek Fleet Command

⇒There are lots of resources you can mine from the galaxy systems; crystal, ore, gas, dilithium, tritanium. You can check the list/locationshere. It would be better to send a mining/survey ship to mine the resources. All these mining ships have the ability to mine a particular resource quickly. You can check the ship’s ability in the manage view.

⇒Players can attack a mining ship anytime. Let’s learn with an example; your ship is mining tritanium in X system. And, the enemy ship arrives and destroys your ship. In this case, you may lose the resources(Cargo). All the ships in Star Trek Fleet Command have a unique utility ability; protected cargo. Go to the ship manage view -> go to the details tab -> here you can see the protected cargo amount. For example; it’s 500. The enemy can not steal this certain amount of cargo from your ship.

Exploring Guide For Rookies

  1. On the galaxy screen, you will see Systems. You can explore in the Systems. By exploring, we mean; attack the stations, destroy the hostiles, mine the resources.
  2. To view a system, you will have to set course first. Go to the galaxy screen -> tap on any system -> set course. Once done, you will be able to view that system.
  3. Once you are done, send the ship in that system and start exploring.
  4. Recall it to home once you are done exploring.

This function is similar to the Nova Empire game.

So that’s all for now as Star Trek Fleet Command guide. We’ll update this post with Factions guide soon. Let’s read our top Star Trek Fleet Command tips, cheats & strategies!

Mine The Resources In Systems, But Wisely

Star Trek Fleet Command guide: tips, cheats & strategies - MrGuider (6)⇒If you explore a bit in the System, you will find mining nodes. There you can mine the resources. And it takes hours. Before you leave the game, send one of your ships to these resources for gathering. You can mine Tritanium in high level systems (check the picture in comments below). For the complete list and locations, check this post.

⇒It would be a good idea to mine in less-crowded systems, because the enemy can raid anytime. Additionally, use the survey ships to mine the resources.

Build Duplicates, But For Mining

The Star Trek Fleet Command lets the player build duplicate ships. For example; if you already have one Phindra, you can build one more. We would recommend you to build duplicate survey/mining ships rather than the combat ships. For example; Envoy, Fortunate. This will help you in farming resources. Always keep in mind that there are limited ship inventory slots. Since you can not dismantle or delete the ships, don’t build duplicates of weak and combat ships. If you reach the maximum limit, you will have to upgrade the ship hanger.

Participate In The Limited-Time Events

On the right side of the game’s screen, tap the events option and check out all the on-going events. From these events, you can earn rewards; resources, recruit tokens, ultra recruit tokens, and much more. Tap on any event and under the how to earn points section, you can check how to earn points. Earn more than other players for better rewards.

Increase The Overall Power

Increase the power by upgrading and building facilities at your base. Level up ships, equip parts, and tier up. Upgrade drydocks. Level up officers, promote officers. Research in the R & Department for additional buffs.

Keep Hunting The Hostiles

Destroy the hostiles to farm Ship EXP, parts, and other items.

Get Free Benefits By Joining An Alliance

Join an alliance and participate in the alliance events for alliance credits, items, resources. Additionally, you can ask for help to speed up building upgrades, construction.

Complete The Missions, Daily Goals

The player can obtain latinum, loads of resources, recruitment tokens by completing all the daily goals. Additionally, complete the missions for better rewards; Ship XP, speed-ups, and more.

Pay Attention To The Ship Types

Star Trek Fleet Command guide: tips, cheats & strategies - MrGuider (7)As mentioned above, there are four types of ships in Star Trek Fleet Command. Mining or survey ships are not good for combat. But interceptors, explorers, and battleships are good for combat. Before you attack an enemy ship, check the ship type and choose the right type of ship for the attack. Interceptors > Battleships. Battleship > Explorer. Explorer > Interceptor. For example; if the enemy is using explorer, send the battleship element ship.
