Thanks in advance
There are TWO requirements to get your new ship, both can be seen by mousing over your experience bar.
To get the new ship, you must BOTH advance to Lt. Cmdr 1, AND have spent a total of 6700 skill points on your character. There's plenty to spend points on, if you scroll down through the entire list.
Once you do both, you'll get a message to contact Admiral Quinn in Earth Spacedock. After you do so, you can go claim your Tier 2 ship.
You can also get a little "ceremony" in the Statroom - it's just all the NPCs there saluting you, but hey, it's better than nothing...:)
As for the artifacts etc...They're used at Memory Alpha to customize your weapons a bit - which is the extent of "crafting" in this game. You need to have 1 of whatever item you want to add something to in inventory, the appropriate items in either your inventory OR in your bank, and then "buy" the enhanced weapon. At the first tier, it's all Lt. stuff and green quality. To unlock higher levels you need to do quite a bit of crafting at the first - IIRC you need to craft using a total of at least 75 second-tier items to unlock Tier II crafting.
