It says on the ship info at requisitions the quantity avaiable. It said 0, we did the provisions mission, it said 5, I bought the non-fleet version for 200k fleet credits, and now it says 4. Considering how many provisioning missions we're getting, it shouldn't be a problem to stay in stock, but it is a little low in my opinion considering it's 200k dilithium for everyone on the fleet to get 5 people a ship.
I'm 99% sure anyone that has enough credits can get it if we're in stock.
We are limiting it to Shadowcat Elites for now. Access to the provisions is meant to be a reward for long term dedication to the fleet.

Can any fleet member buy a fleet ship when there are provisions, or does one need special permission, or rank?
Only the Shadowcat Elite and Shadowcat Master ranks can make the purchase, to achieve the Shadowcat Elite (rank 6) position you need to be in the fleet for 2 months and then promotion is granted at the discretion of the Shadowcat Masters. There's also the possibility of a special circumstances promotion, which is also granted at the discretion of the Shadowcat Masters.
This for now; appears to be fair to the fleet members who've been in the fleet the longest amount of time, who've shown loyalty and sacrifice.
