The Runabout Was POS.

I love the Runabout, but it's true that it's way overpriced. It should be like 10-20k energy credits at most.
Just add shuttles like this to every ship where you can instantly switch back and forth. Could be a fun little mini-game like someone suggested. Take a shuttle through wormhole and scan X in Y time.
Shuttle versus shuttle races. Travel through asteroid belt X, past Nebula Y, around planet Z, and back to point A before any other shuttles.
Shuttle salvage missions. Use shuttle tractor beam and pull X asteroids to mining base Y.
Tons of cool non-combat missions they can add for space and do in shuttles.
