Your Ultranought starts off being able to launch a single type of ship - a Mith'ri'aeil leech. While not powerful, this leech generates energy for your base, which allows you to launch more and more of these to overrun the opposing forces. The energy the leeches generate also powers a passive ability that becomes stronger the more energy you have in stock.
As you defeat opponents in battle, you'll gain experience, which you can invest in skills. Each of the 8 races you'll encounter have their own experience type which can only be used to boost skills of that race. These skills can upgrade the abilities this race offers, or make this race's ships stronger and unlock up to 4 ships per race.

As you unlock more ships and improve the abilities of your Hydranought, you'll be able to take on stronger and stronger opponents.
