Here is why. If shuttles were scaled relative to a Galaxy class cruiser, it would be smaller than the pixel resolution of your screen.

Almost all of the ships are very well scaled in the game, for gameplay reasons, some map assets have to be scaled down/up (Still hoping they scale DS9 down a little bit so its closer to the correct size).
