I believe you will need to get 10k in each department in order to move up to the next tier.
I'm not sure that's correct...
It sounded to me like They said that some fleets could specialize in one Dept and still advance to the next Fleet Level.
It also seems like the Fleet Point Counter isn't working, cause the Tribble fleet I'm in has 2000 FP's but it's not showing on the actual FP counter at the top, right side of the UI...
It's only showing on the left side of the UI under the UFP symbol.
We have enough FP to advance to Tier I from Zero (1000FP's), but haven't.

You get 1000 General Fleet XP every time you upgrade one of the three branches one level.
So say you have 10k Military XP and 10k Science XP. You upgrade each one to Tier 1. You then have Tier 1 Military, Tier 1 Science, and Tier 0 Engineering. You then have 2000 General fleet XP.
1.000 General is enough to upgrade to Tier 1 starbase. So really after you upgrade ANY SINGLE one of the three branches to Tier 1, you can then upgrade you base to Tier 1.
For Tier 2, you only need 3k General Fleet XP. Now you could a traditional route and get all your three branches to Tier 1, then upgrade the Base to Tier 2. But you do not have to do that. You can get Military up to 3 and leave SCi and Eng alone, and still get Base Tier 2.
HOpe that made sense.
