Types Edit

There are two types of currency used in-game, Currency-dilithiums dilithium crystals (purpleCurrency-dilithium) and Currency-coins coins (goldCurrency-coin). Typically, the crystals are used to increase the level of a character or starship. The coins are used to upgrade/evolve a character or starship and to buy other specialized items.

Even though coins are normally used for upgrades, a more economical way to upgrade is to recruit another copy of the same character or starship. The recruit button changes to an upgrade-button which allows another set of levels to be unlocked (evolved) when used.

Even though coins can purchase items from the Archive, it is often possible to win the items in other ways. A common theme in the game is to have an Event to play (eg Borg-Cube-1) for a week or so. Once that event is complete, then that item will be available for sale in the Archive for a few days (eg Cube-1 has a red ribbon with bow in Archive signifying sale). The purchase price is oftentimes very high (eg 3000 coins). However, if you are very persistent and maybe even lucky, then during the original event you can keep playing against opponenets until you win that same character as a prize. Also, at the conclusion of the event, your alliance could also be rewarded with that item.

Coins are the only means to do the following specialized tasks.

  1. Purchase more Crew member slots for characters
  2. Purchase more Stardock slots for starships

Extra Crew and Stardock slots become critical the longer you play so that you can collect and upgrade without losing your already-upgraded items...

Cost Tables Edit

Typically, for tier-XX characters - the cost for each level-upgrade rises by a consistent amount (eg tier-1 crew adds 50 crystals). This allows us to create a simple table to calculate costs...

Here are the links to the sections repeated-below for fun...
