Whenever you complete the class questline on the starting planet and go to the fleet. Around 9 or 10.

Depending on whether you can take the shuttle to the Fleet Station before finishing your class quest (you could in Beta on Bounty Hunters - not your personal starship, public shuttle) then you can get your crew skills but you won't be able to use them other than gathering nor drop them til you get your first crewmember.

It helped level my gathering skill to the next tier during beta but not sure if its still possible.

Sadly no. You get your ship when you're done with your class quest line on the capitol planet. Probably around level 14-16.

At least, this was true during the thanksgiving beta weekend. I rushed a Sith Warrior through that quest chain on Dromund Kass and took off in my own ship at level 14. It was a very close call though, as I was nearly killed several times, and was in mid-flight to Tatooine whe*connection lost*

I have seen people having their ship at lvl 15. However this can only be achieved by rushing your story quest.

There are four negative parts on this:
- The final quests of your story up to the ship will be very hard.
- You will not have the optional quests for the area the final quests of your story take place.
- You will most likely miss half of your story because you are rushing
- You will not really be able to use it, as the next area you can go to (by ship) will be lvl 18-20ish.

If you level as planned (e.g. by doing the optional quests) you will leave the capital city around lvl 18.

I believe you can just skip to the fleet and train your crew skills. Then shuttle back to your starting planet to continue/start your class quest line. That was beta though so not sure if it's also true in live.

You can get your crew skills as soon as your able to get to the fleet, theoretically lvl 2.

However, you can't craft until you get your first companion, you can gather however.

When you get to the fleet. It's not far from your trainers.
Cathar? Pshaw! That's so last patch. Give us Shistavanen, or give us Death!
