Because Cryptic in their great wisdom decided to make ships systems not go offline because of damage.

This was discussed a few times. They didn't want players to have to think and worry about what they called a "spiraling" effect of ships systems getting weaker as the ships took more damage.

They wanted to make the game easy enough for my 18 mo son to play it to keep him from climbing the kitchen counters and getting to the cookie jar...

edit..

I do not agree with this mind you. I'd much rather be able to disable your ship and laugh at you and require you to self destruct to get anywhere.

end of edit..
