As you level up you achieve new ranks. You get a new rank every 10 levels. So, at level 11 you rank up to Lieutenant Commander, at level 21 you rank up to Commander and so on. Each time you get a new rank you are given a commission for a new ship. You can then choose between the ships available for that rank. This is a choice between the various types of ships, Science, Cruiser or Escort. Each of these choices will then have three variations which you can use whole or mix and match in the ship editor.

If you want more than one ship for a given rank you have to pay for them. You only get one commission per rank.

And specifically about the Sovereign -- it will become available to you once you hit Rear Admiral 1 (level 41).

Some people stick with one type of ship while they level up, e.g. escorts, heavy escorts, tactical escorts, then finally advanced and/or fleet escorts. While others mix it up at each rank. It's all a matter of preference and playstyle and also, importantly, what ship skills you invest in.

Note however, that having a lack of ship skills for a particular ship doesn't mean you can't captain it. Ships are only limited by rank. And thankfully, in addition to the free ship commission you get at each rank like Blackavaar mentioned, you also get a free respec token.

The same place you take your commission to, the Upper Level of the Ship Yard. When you get your first commission the mission will lead you there. Talk to the lady behind the counter to redeem your commission/make your purchase.
