It's a poor attempt at creating a money sink for the "economy." Aside from paying insanely inflated prices on the exchange for items (Which are usually inferior or equal to what you can trade badges for) there's not a whole lot/anything to spend EC on.

The saddest part is the shuttle itself is pretty lame compared to even the noob ship (1/2 the hull points and no rear wpn but more maneuvability) making it pretty much worthless for anything aside from touring the galaxy or mentoring Lieutenants when you're Admiral rank.

Make it some kind of "combat shuttle" with a turret slot in back, battle cloak, and higher ranking B/O slots, and it'd be worth picking up, even at three times the current cost.
