Seems you've misunderstood the system slightly:
  1. You don't technically decide if you can afford the ship or not. Your fleet leader (or assigned members) queue projects that allow for Provisions to be stored. Those in turn can then be used for buying Fleet ships, which in turn will withdraw and remove one (1) provision from your fleets resources pr ship purchase.
  2. You don't turn your ship into a Fleet ship, you buy a new one, meaning you will keep or discard your old ship.
  3. Only the most common ships are fleet ships... The Ferengi, Dominion, Breen, Galor and Other Grab-bag ships do not exist as fleet ships
  4. The Oddy you can get from the Fleet store, is actually the prototype variant we could get last year. Its sub-par to those in the C-Store.
  5. You can see all the prices and stats of the Fleet ships in any Shipyard on any station (Fleet starbases only if you have the shipyard vendor). Prices vary from person to person, since it depends on if you have the C-Store variant already

Hope this helps.

Also, you should note that if you dismiss a fleet ship after purchase, you can not re-aquire a new one for free. You will have to buy another fleet module from the C-Store if you do.

Fleet Ships are not account unlocks, they are individual ship purchase for a single character...

ooh...that I did not know! I spent $25 on my fleet Excelsior three weeks ago... would have been furious had I discharged it (not likely ever going to happen) not knowing this!! I heard that I should have bought the c-store variant first and than the fleet one but oh well... I was feeling nostalgic for the Enterprise B so what the heck.

Every fleet is different too btw. As Anazonda pointed out the fleet leader decides. Mine was kind enough to trust me and allow me to purchase one the same day that I joined. Like yourself, I didnt really udnerstand how it worked so was surprised after buying five fleet modules that i couldn't get my excel. Suffice it to say all worked out but obviously it doesn't hurt to be trustworthy and to contribute handsomely to projects as a sign of good faith.

There are fleets that actually sell access to fleet ships for a couple amount of million EC but frankly, you can avoid that altogether with patience and dedication.

all fleet ships are vice admiral level, so you can narrow your search down by selecting only vice admiral level ships in the shipyard.

also the Armitage s not a cruiser, it's under "others" since is a heavy escort carrier.

Remember when, as part of your rank promotion(s), you received free ship token(s) at each Tier? Those other ships you didn't choose are available for dilithium. In the distant past, players used to be able to buy ships for EC, but this feature was taken out by S5.

Fleet ships are always going require Fleet Ship Modules (C-store) because they are meant to be end-level gear exclusive to fleets. If you grind dilithium, convert to Zen and buy the modules, you are effectively buying fleet ships with dilithium.

Now I am surprised nobody mentioned tiers. Isnt it true that your fleet base has to be leveled to say tier 3 before you can get tier 3 ships and tier 5 for tier 5 ships?
