You'll, presumably, get a new Plaque every rank-up that will provide you with a free ship at least once. I don't think you'll ever have to buy a ship unless you want two of any one tier. >> Sorry about being unclear there.
And until Tier 5, there's only one 'type' per category. But, they're customizable off three models per-category. Each Escort ship is fundamentally the same, but can look different depending on how you customize it (just like your starter Light Cruiser can be).
