Actually, as you'll recall, it doesn't put up much of a fight against anything until after you get back to the Flotilla, who let you know they're repairing and upgrading it before they send you off. And even then, the first battleship you face is scaled up closer to a dreadnought and you're given a fleet of little ships like yours to deal with it.

They do a pretty good job using design and mission flow rather than balance to separate your civilian rustbucket from the regular military ships the other factions start with, both of which do stand up to battleships out-of-the-box.
