Because doing something like that would require Cryptic walking a very fine line and could hurt them in the long run. Some game company that is hurting for money could sue Cryptic for using a ship that is similar to their ship. So either Cryptic has to get their permission for using a ship similar to it or just not bother with getting into that mess.
