Is PVP the only factor you judge "Balance" by?

As have I. It's only way things can be balanced in both PvE and PvP.
As for Ship balance: no, PvP isn't my only yardstick.
If X Ship > Y Ship in every non-trivial way for instance, it's unbalanced and it'll cause issues in PvE and PvP alike.
Just because in PvE Ships don't face off with each other doesn't mean balance is any less relevant than in PvP.
