SO what is all the different XP for? Free, Commander, Elite, etc....? How do you use it, can you transfer it so something useful, what's it's purpose?

Free xp is just that, free to use for anything you use xp for in game, as well as one form of currency for freemium ships (like Alaska). The most common uses for it are buying free xp ships and researching modules to skip a stock ship grind. Some people will use it to skip ships entirely either to get a new high tier ship the day it’s released or because they don’t like a certain ship, but I tend to recommend not doing that so you don’t progress too quickly up a new line before you get the experience and familiarity with whatever the ship in question teaches you about the line.

Commander xp is kind of like ship xp, but earned by the commander instead of the ship. Ship xp allows you to research modules and ships, commander xp levels your captain up.

 

There are two types of elite xp, ship and commander. Elite ship xp is any xp earned by a ship after all modules and the next ship(s) are researched. It can be converted to free xp at a rate of 1 doubloon for 25 xp (sometimes there’s a 1 to 35 sale) but generally this isn’t recommended since you earn free xp over time just by playing and the return for your investment isn’t great.

Elite commander xp is earned by your commander once he reaches 19 points (the max level for a captain), and can be used to level up or retrain any other captain, almost like a free xp but for captains. It can also be converted to free xp (at the 1 to 25 rate), but this also isn’t really worth it. However unlike free xp which is earned as a percentage of your xp earned, 100% of any xp earned by a 19 point commander is elite commander xp. Occasionally missions will drop elite commander xp as a reward but the best way to get it is to level up commanders on the ships you play a lot and farm it. Leveling up your first 19 point commander is tough sometimes, but the more you have the quicker you can get new ones.
