I am starting to agree with this. Partly because the rest of the game works this way - on a per-faction basis, the ships you encounter the first time will always be the same ships you encounter.
There'd need to be a lot of work done to make the ships that should be weaker in raw power still relevant. Some, like definitely the Light Cruisers, should be squadron-based gameplay - also like they're balanced when not in PC hands. Some could be rounded out with special abilities and focused roles. The most broadly and outright powerful - the current T5, with some exceptions - would just get the big numbers as now.
Space combat 2.0, basically? Probably pretty far off.
