    With the Delta Rising -expansion they introduced these new starship traits you can get by leveling up a T6 starship 5 times. These traits are per character unlocks, meaning you can just level a ship up for the trait which you can use later on any ship you own.

    Current traits that are available and which ship/faction they are available:

    Mat'Ha Raptor (KDF) from Arc:
    After reaching level 5 in your Mat’Ha Raptor’s Starship Mastery you will unlock the Overwhelming Force starship trait. While this trait is slotted your Beam Overload attacks will create a reduced radius Charged Particle Burst at the target's location. Your High Yield Torpedo attacks will create a reduced radius Photonic Shockwave at the target's location.

    Qib Intel Battlecruiser (KDF):
    After achieving level 5 in your Qib Intel Battlecruiser’s Starship Mastery, you will unlock the Advanced Firing Solutions starship trait. While this trait is slotted, each time a cannon weapon is fired your starship will gain a small amount of bonus turn rate and accuracy for a short time. This bonus stacks up to 10 times.

    Eclipse Intel Cruiser (FED):
    After achieving level 5 in your Eclipse Intel Cruiser’s Starship Mastery, you will unlock the Battle Ready starship trait. While this trait is slotted, each time you use an Engineering or Intelligence bridge officer ability you gain a Defense and Damage Resistance Rating buff for a short time. This buff stacks up to 3 times.

    Guardian Cruiser (FED):
    After achieving level 5 in your Guardian Cruiser’s Starship Mastery, you will unlock the Desperate Repairs starship trait. While this trait is slotted, each time your starship is critically hit you receive a Desperation counter. Immediately upon receiving a third Desperation counter you will receive a large hull and shield heal and will be unable to gain Desperation counters for a while.

    Phantom Intel Escort (FED):
    After achieving level 5 in your Phantom Intel Escort’s Starship Mastery, you will unlock the Reciprocity starship trait. While this trait is slotted and an enemy misses you in combat, you have all of your Tactical and Intelligence bridge officer ability recharge times reduced slightly. This reduction can happen every few seconds, and it cannot reduce an ability's recharge time below its group cooldown.

    Scryer Intel Science Vessel (FED):
    After achieving level 5 in your Scryer Intel Science Vessel’s Starship Mastery, you will unlock the Emitter Synergy starship trait. While this trait is slotted, each time you use a Tactical or Intelligence bridge officer ability you gain a small bonus to both Exotic Damage and Shield Healing. This bonus stacks up to 3 times.

    Experimental Science Vessel - Dauntless (FED):
    After achieving level 5 in your Experimental Science Vessel’s Starship Mastery, you will unlock the Radiant Nanite Cloud starship trait. While this trait is slotted, all hull heal bridge officer abilities will heal for an additional 25% over 4 seconds in a 3 km radius.

    Faeht Intel Warbird (ROM):
    After achieving level 5 in your Faeht Intel Warbird, you will unlock the Tactical Retreat starship trait. While this trait is slotted, gain a large defense and flight speed buff for a short time after being knocked below 25% hull strength. You also become untargetable for 2 seconds and have all enemy threat reduced to zero. Tactical Retreat can be triggered once every 60 seconds.

    Aelahl Warbird Battlecruiser (ROM):
    After reaching level 5 in your Aelahl Warbird Battlecruiser’s Starship Mastery you will unlock the Warp Shadow Decoy starship trait. While this trait is slotted cloaking will cause a Warp Shadow to appear near your location, causing enemy NPCs to attack your decoy instead of attacking you. This effect cannot trigger more often than once every thirty seconds.

    Benthan Assault Cruiser (Lockbox):
    After achieving level 5 in your Benthan Assault Cruiser, you will unlock the Load Viral Torpedo starship trait. While this trait is slotted, activation of Engineering, Science, Tactical and Intelligence Team now load a Viral Torpedo. This causes your next Torpedo attack to disable your target(s) for a short period of time. This can occur once every 20 seconds.

    Hazari Destroyer (Lobi):
    After achieving level 5 in your Hazari Destroyer, you will unlock the Partners in Arms starship trait. This special trait can be used on any starship that you own. While the Partners in Arms starship trait is active your ally targeted heals and buffs now provide you with a boost to all damage for a short time. This buff stacks up to 3 times.

    As this is the list of currently available traits, there isnt much variety specially on KDF-side.

    Playing a cannon battlecruiser myself, dont see that many traits actually worth getting. Maybe the Qib and Mat'Ha for BO's alone. Still, its 6000 zen for just 2 traits. Would you save that much?

    Captain specialization starship mastery trait unlocks, secondary trees(commando/pilot) must be filled completely to unlock them, intelligence unlocks a weaker version of the trait on 15 skill points:

    Intelligence tree:
    Predictive Algorithms - Activating any Weapon Enhancement Ability (such as Torpedo Spread or Beam Overload) will remove one Debuff from self, and grant a short-duration Accuracy boost.

    Commando tree:
    Demolition Teams - While within short range of an enemy starship, periodically beam over clusters of explosives to their interior. After several charges are placed, they will be automatically detonated, dealing kinetic damage that bypasses shields.

    Pilot tree:
    Pedal to the Metal - Gain a stacking damage bonus for each second you remain at high speed. All stacks are lost if your speed drops for any reason.

    Vaadwaur Manasa Escort(Lockbox):
    After achieving level 5 in your Vaadwaur Manasa Assault Escort’s starship mastery, you will unlock the Frontal Assault starship trait.
    While this starship trait is slotted, activating Cannon abilities will provide a boost to your frontal shield hardness and regeneration rate for a short time.

    Vaadwaur Astika Heavy Battlecruiser(Lobi):
    After achieving level 5 in your Vaadwaur Astika Heavy Battlecruiser starship mastery, you will unlock the Supremacy starship trait.
    While this starship trait is slotted, activating Beam: Fire At Will or Cannon: Scatter Volley will provide a small boost to all subsystem power levels per target hit for a short time as long as these attack modes are active.
    This bonus stacks up to 20 times.

    Both traits look pretty good specially the latter.

    Kobali Samsar Cruiser(2015 anniversary event):
    After achieving level 5 in your Kobali Samsar Cruiser's starship mastery, you will unlock the Emergency Response starship trait.

    Command specialization tree:
    Command Frequency (15 skill points spent)
    Your advanced Command training has granted you access to special communications frequencies that can be used to more readily call for assistance in battle.
    - The “Low Health” requirement is removed from Fleet Support
    - Cooldown of Fleet Support reduced by 5 minutes

    After 30 abilities are purchased, you gain access to Improved Command Frequency, which functions the same as above, but reduces the cooldown of Fleet Support by an additional 5 minutes.

    Command ships ( all factions receive same traits, finally):

    After achieving level 5 in the Concorde, An’quat or Baratan Class Command ship’s starship mastery, you will unlock the Improved Brace for Impact starship trait. While this trait is slotted activating Brace for Impact grants you a very large amount of Temporary Hit Points for a short period of time.

    After achieving level 5 in the Geneva, Klinzhai or Deihu Class Command ship’s starship mastery, you will unlock the Improved Tachyon Beam starship trait. While this trait is slotted Tachyon Beam will now regenerate the shields of allies near the target.

    After achieving level 5 in the Presidio, Ty’Gokor or Vastam Class Command ship’s starship mastery, you will unlock the All Hands on Deck starship trait. While this trait is slotted, activating a Tactical or Command Bridge Officer ability will reduce the recharge time of Science Bridge Officer and Captain abilities. This may only occur once every few seconds.

    The last one looks very good.
