They haven't done any impressively modular ships in a long time. The way we could customize our T1 Miranda was what drew me into the game initially. That, the T3 Cruiser tree and a few others gave the opportunity for really interesting ships. On the other hand, I cannot tell the Vestas from each other or from a hybrid.
