To me, it seems that, yes, you can upgrade ships, but even that has limits before you have to move onto something bigger.
I didn't think modular was assumed, but maybe I'm in the minority there.
I agree in that yes you should be able to upgrade you ship, but that there should be a motivation to leave a "lower tier level" ship for as you put it "something bigger and better".
Part of the answer is contained in the modularity idea. If our access to ships of a larger size is a part of progression it would mean that the lower leveled ships would have less room and therefore modularity would force all but the die hard to move to a ship that allowed them to equip more.
