Remember: CIG offers the oppportunity to (pledge) purchase ships for cash in order to help fund Star Citizen's development. The funding generated by such sales is what allows them to include deeper features in the Star Citizen world.

Beyond the affordable start ships, they will not be required to play the game. Not all ships are available at all times. All ships are said to be available in game after launch for in game money (although certain ships will be rarer than others).

You can buy ships standalone or with ship packages. In both cases, you can change your ship by melting it and buying another one or using ship upgrades.
