The Faq says that this will take place in the 24th century so Im not sure if you'd be able to find ships from the original series in it. That would be a very old ship.

We'll be Starfleet personnel, and as such we won't be buying ships. Our interaction with ship command will occur as temporary commands during missions and possibly as full commissions to command of a ship (or station perhaps) at higher levels of experience.

But you can bet we'll see old vessels and possibly use them on missions.

Who SAID the we will be star fleet. if we were JUST star fleet personal that would suck. sure ENLIST in SF. but not everyone will be :p

Well if they do decide to have a currency and full player owned ships then they should allow you to do a mission or something to give you the right to purchase an old refit.

Why not have the ability to be going along your normal business and come accross an old abandoned and highly damaged Starfleet ship? Pay to have it rebuilt or whatever and there you have your own very old ship :)

I think we would at least be able to join the Klingons or Cardassian ranks or it would get very boring fighting just bots.

F2_Switch, we will be Starfleet as per the present plan, the devs have already layed that out.

From the official FAQ:
How will characters advance and grow?
Characters will gain skills and rank by completing missions assigned by Starfleet command or by otherwise advancing the needs of Starfleet.


From an IGN interview found at http://pc.ign.com/articles/545/545392p1.html:
IGNPC: Hmm, well then it might be too early to answer this as well, but we might as well ask. Will people be able to affiliate themselves with organizations like the Federation or the Klingon Empire?

Chris McKibbin: Without a doubt at launch people will be able to affiliate themselves with the Federation. We imagine through the life of this game that players will be able to affiliate themselves with multiple organizations. I don't know whether that's available at launch or will happen with an expansion. It's hard to say right now.



This tells us that at launch the general idea is to provide play as Starfleet and that they are looking at expansions to then add play for the other entities/empires. Of course, nothing is written completely in stone yet, but this is the main outline they will follow.
