Because, for better or worse, most of the content in this game is designed to be solo-able; and the objectives are pretty much the same regardless of your career path or ship ('kill x enemy squadrons', and such like). Changing that would require redoing every mission in the game that isn't an STF or Fleet Action; so that won't be happening.

The result of this is that every type of ship needs to be equally capable, since every type of ship faces equal challenges; but they aren't.

BTW, you'd pronounce it 'Cap'n Manks'
