I wanted a Shuttle-craft not a tiny Starship.

The Tech simply does not exist yet in STO that allows you to change ship while in it.
Theres a lot of character data that is transferred with a ship swap ranging from weapons and equipment loadout to the power bar setup.
The additional problem is, even if you could, how and with what would you dock again?
That presents its own set of problems.
All in all it is a very big can of worms that does not have any kind of simple solution.
Your shuttle is an avatar.
Your ship is an avatar.
You basically want to go from yourself to yourself. This is a major code modification and will require a huge amount of time.
