Among the many collectibles available for players to collect in Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga are five massive capital ships. These ships are enormous and contain much for players to explore once unlocked.

To unlock the capital ships, players will need to fulfill various requirements before being able to purchase them. Unlocking capital ships requires players to complete certain aspects of the game such as specific episodes and side quests.

The prerequisites necessary for unlocking all of these ships are generally fairly easy, but the studs needed to purchase them afterward are quite hefty. Players hoping to get a capital ship will need to accumulate millions of studs. The price of each capital ship ranges from 2 to 5 million studs.

Luckily, players can complete the requirements to unlock capital ships and unlock the option to buy them without having the required studs. This means that players can feel free to go through the steps of unlocking the ships and purchase them later on when they have accumulated the required studs.

After they have been unlocked and purchased, capital ships can then be summoned in any space region. Players can do this by opening the ship menu whilst in space and selecting the capital ship they want to summon. Only one capital ship can be summoned at a time.

Players can explore the interior of any of their unlocked capital ships for fun and to find collectibles onboard. Think of your capital ships like all of the planets in the game. Just like all of the worlds in Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, capital ships hide many secrets for players to uncover.
