Ship Slot Limit?!

Sorry, I should have said in my subsequent post that I got rid of my Zen ships that were junk, there are a couple I still fly for fleet special events (like TOS or TNG theme nights) or are pending an upgrade to Fleet version...and yes, I have a lot of special shuttles but then my fleet also started Shuttle Wars and we still do that every now and then and I like to mix it up. A full roster of ships takes multiple screen shots, I might bother with that later but I have nothing to prove, I know what I have and all these ships serve a purpose for me. That said and for your satisfaction, below is the list of ships I have on my main character.
The point remains that I have good ships I want to keep and an increased dry dock would allow me to keep building.
If I'm willing to pay for the slots, I should be able to do so and that's all I'm asking for here...after all this is a forum for feedback. I'm sure I'm not the only one out there collecting ships.
As to the point of server resources for shipyard slots, having people create additional characters (and all the database references that come with that) to get around it is much more resource intense than allowing for additional ship slots. It also isn't like the shipyard gets accessed every time you warp/beam in somewhere...so the overhead should be really low in the scheme of things (I'm not arguing that there is no overhead, only that it is negligible and they are compensated for it). I do have other characters that I have been pushing other ships to, (for example, I put the mirror ships on my characters of the relative class). I also have KDF and ROM characters collecting faction specific ships. That said, they are just alts, it's my main character I like to play and really work on.
I should also note that not all c-store ships can be re-obtained without a repeat zen expenditure. This may just be a bug but it happens often and therefore, how much can you really trust dropping paid for ships? Example, I have already purchased the Exploration Cruiser Retrofit but when dropping it I have to pay the Zen all over again. Same happened to me with the Exeter ship. There were others but they seem to come and go with different patch releases.
