Swapping the ships works very well in space because they just fade in and out. It's actually pretty close to seamless.

Be sure to place the two ships at exactly the same coordinates. If one is an NPC Contact and the other is an enemy group, then reskin the lowest actor number in the group to be the ship you want, and place that ship in the exact coordinates as the NPC Contact. I recommend using either the cruiser or the battleship group, but if you use battleship then you also need to reskin the highest two actors and place them in the same location as the NPC contact (with more players the last two battleship actors instead). Optionally you can also reskin the other actors as fighters or other support craft, which will make it less weird if additional ships spawn due to more players.
