Each ship purchased becomes part of the local fleet. At the time the ship is built, the ship is assigned specifications based on ship type and the current level of planetary technologies. In other words, a Destroyer built a month ago could have lesser capabilities than a Destroyer built today, assuming one or more of the ship technologies improved over that time. Ships can be additionally enhanced through alien artifacts and by gaining veteran status during combat.
Ships can not be built unless there are points in each of the ship technologies. It will be hard to perform star to star travel without significant Ship Propulsion technology. Ship Propulsion relates directly to how fast the newly built ship can travel. Futhermore, Planetary Defense Bases (PDB) or ships can not be built or repaired unless the Shipyard is large enough to handle it.
