anyone know the process to convert from gold to silver
There is no process. When you pick a character if there are changes it simply tells you that your character has been converted to conform to the new rules.

when you choose your ships every time you rank up can you choose any kind (engineer, science, or tactical) or only kind for your type of officer

I bought the collector's edition back when the beta ended. I'm interested in coming back and I was told that people with accounts can play right now. My login says I don't have an account but I can log into the website and it says my collector's edition is on my account. Why can't I login?

Will it be possible to have cryptic point cards which can purchased from game retailers like GameStop, Best Buy, Seven Eleven, and more.

Someone mentioned in-game today that when the game officially goes F2P that ship purchases through the C-Store will change. Change such that if you purchase a ship in the C-Store, that ship will only be unlocked on the character it has been purchased for. Is this true?

Yes. We'll be reviewing the content and prices of goods on offer in the C-store. This includes prices for ships at all tiers. There are currently no plans to increase the price of any premium ship. For now, we know that some previously purchasable playable species will soon be free (Ferengi, Rigelian, Pakled, Tellarite), and others (Liberated Borg, Joined Trill, Federation Klingons) will be earned through other means. If you have already unlocked access to any C-store items, including playable species, you will retain that access in the free-to-play transition."

So does this mean that when you level up in rank you need to by your next ship or are you allowed to have a non-specialty ship, like when STO was pay to play? For example if my if someone goes from commander to captain do they need to buy a ship or can they just get, the enterprise for example for free?

You get normal ships choices at Lt. Cmdr, Cmdr, Captain, and RA for free - you get a token. That covers T2, T3, T4, and T5.

Though actually, the F2P Matrix only says tokens at Lt.Cmdr. and Cmdr. (T2 and T3) and dilithium discount on a single ship at later ranks...

I haven't played since August due to financial difficulty. Are my characters still there? I want to play again. Thanks.

My understanding is Cryptic keeps your records indefinitely. So if you ever quit (for any reason), but come back, your characters (with their experience, gear, loot, cash, C-Store unlocks, etc.) are just the way you left them*.

Welcome back!

* Just the way you left them, but perhaps converted to a new system, depending on when you last logged on. For example, all Emblems, Badges, Merits, Medals, etc. got converted into Dilithium (EC and GPLremain, however). Also, the skill tree has been revamped (a couple times), so when you first sign in, you may be required to reapply your skill points (but your rank won't change).
