What Are Star Explorer Parts in Star Trek Fleet Command 3?

Explorer parts can be used to upgrade a player’s ship (all FTSC ships). They come in grades (1, 2, 3, and 4), and an explorer part can require a corresponding grade for an upgrade on a ship. For example, a 3-Star ship will require a grade 3 part, and so on. Not all ships follow this pattern; some higher-grade ships may require lower-grade explorer parts. 

The explorer parts can be obtained by defeating enemies. Parts drop with increased frequency from their corresponding enemy types. So, destroying many hostiles will get you many explorer parts.
