I'd suggest bugging that the ship starts with Mk II stuff as well. Rather silly that the first thing we have to do after getting a new ship is replacing all its items.
Actually, if you think about it, it makes perfect sense. When you get your Miranda, its gear is "standard issue." There then are two upgrade steps you can take (Mk I and II). When you get to Lt Cmdr you get a free set of Mk II stuff and can upgrade two steps (Mk III and IV), and so on.

@ the OP: I kept my Mk II gear and did Tier 2 exploration missions for Mk IV gear, pretty much bypassing any need to purchase any Mk III stuff (I did slot drops if their stats warranted).
