I would personally suggest you avoid buying the lower tiered c-store ships unless you REALLY want the special console.

From my personal experience, I vastly prefer using either the BOP's or the battlecruisers for leveling up. And no, the battlecruisers aren't really the same as fed cruisers, due to the ability to mount DHC's and innate weapon power bonus and better turn rate.

That said, I'd suggest re-rolling to a tac to get the most out of your experience, no matter which ship you choose. The extra dps is awesome.

Ship skins are only interchangeable within the same tier, as far as I know. The ning'tao skin won't work with the hegh'ta.

If you really feel like spending money, the quad cannons and the plasmonic leech consoles are helpful for most ships; the former mainly for leveling and/or aesthetics.
