The ships are also necessary for the additional BO slots and weapons slots so they are not armor, and since the ships themselves have no holds, they aren't even backpacks. I know I don't name my uniform, I do name my ship.

And no, I would rather have a root canal than grind dailies though constant dailies may well be a valid therapy to replace full-frontal labotomies.
Actually Spock traveld through a short distance without having a ship or shuttle, (using a spce suit), so the argument is still valid.

Furthermore,
you can actually keep the t2 ship as long as you want, even your t-1 ship so your argument is actually the invalid one.
Your battles will take a bit longer than with a state of the art ship but it is still possible to miss out a tier.
I know because I did it myself. It got a bit though when I hit Cmdr 8, but I still managed to do it just fine.

Do you think Picard our Kirk could go to SFC and start saying: 'Sir, I need a new vessel, those pesky romulans are far better equipped than my ship is. I know I jusyt got the enterprise, but hey why not renaming the USS Sovereign into Enterprise and make it an Enterprise class?... Yeah i know she is still experimental, but hey I want to "pew pew" these green blooded sly *******s isntead of having to fight a minute longer.'


No longer having a game where you could actually go AFK the rest of the battle after pressing a single BOFF ability is actually an improvment, not a downgrade.
óR DO you think all those Miranda captains, the show, could go to Starfleet and just ask for a new ship, because the emenies vesels were better? - No. They had to make the best they could out of it.
And yes there were things they couldn't do because of their ship - And this is represented by the BOFF abilities.
