None of the C-store ships are required to succeed in the game. And you can obtain them with emblems without purchasing them. One advantage of buying, though, is that if purchased, it is unlocked for ALL your characters. The emblem grind would only buy it for that particular character. I have been playing since beta, and I have only purchased 1 ship from the C-store (advanced heavy cruiser refit, aka Excelsior), and I only use it on 1 character. And of course, I bought it during one of the sales. If you are just starting out, I would wait and see if one of those ships is right for you. Get a feel for the game first. You can't use those ships anyway until you are admiral rank.
