I just made Lt. Commander and got my first ship. I picked the Cruiser since I could get a constitution class starship like the Enterprise. However, I am a science officer and I think I might have done better to pick a Science vessel. Is there a way to switch from Cruiser to Science without waiting for the next rank?

Go back to the ship vendor and buy the other ship with credits. (20k plus change for T2, IIRC.)

Yes, you could buy yourself a Science Vessel with Energy Credits if you can afford it. You cannot exchange the Cruiser for it though, if that's what you were thinking. You'll simply have both ships and be able to choose to fly one or the other.

Note however that you don't necessarily have to fly a Science ship just because you are a Science captain, especially at lower levels. Your career only really comes into play later on when you can train your BOffs in level III Science skills that will not be useful for a Cruiser, which will not have the necessary BOff slots to use them. And even then you can have an Engineering friend train your Engineering BOffs for you instead.

i always recommend an escort as a player's first ship so you can get through the missions quicker. Ship class only starts to matter at Cmdr, when you get access to your third tier BOff abilities
