Tailored doesn't mean it has to be the best for it. The warp cores are no different than consoles: their benefit depends largely on the player's build/setup rather than the ship itself.

In this case the Nebula would come with a core that boosts all sci stats depending on power levels... but there are warp cores that might offer better options depending on the player's needs (shield resist cores? weapon damage? etc).

Naturally they dont want that because they have to adapt cores after releases since its a new mechanic and if they were on pay ships you can guess what would happened if nerfed and also because doing so would remove any reasoning to remove the core that cone with the ship making the entire system redundant.
Again, its no different than c-store consoles.

And before anyone comes with "it would only be for this ships" I would like to remind if they did for one ship this would lead to everyone asking "were my core Cryptic" for their ships.
Thats why I'm saying this would only be for cstore ships. Heck perhaps even limit it to T5 ships since the T1-4's have the share-able consoles.
