First, keep in mind that the T5 ship you get at level 40 is as tough as the any of the 3 Retrofit ships choices you used to get at level 50. You're not losing any "power," you're simply not getting another ship at level 50. IE, the Sovereign isn't weaker then the Galaxy R.

As for why you not longer get a free Retrofit ship at VA, there are 2 reasons:

1: It was made a Vet Reward token to try and entice people to buy a Gold membership.

2: Cryptic wants players to buy C-Store ships at VA so they can continue to make money and continue to produce the game.
