You should be able to build your first AI controlled ally ship after finishing the 1st boss. Actually at the very beginning of the game, you will have to get familiar with quite some systems, such as side quests, trading among starports, fitting a ship, or robbing, therefore you may want to build ship after finishing the 1st or even the 2nd boss.
