Hey there folks - I found something interesting if you just want to look at what you can do to other ships in the customization mode.
It's some guy's YouTube channel where he has posted short (yet 1020p) videos of him messing around with the customization options for every Federation ship in the game, as well as a slew of part, material, and paint combinations. You can see the other ships in the sidebar, or just browse his channel - I'm sure you'll find the ship you're looking for
Hope this helps anyone else out there who is curious about what you can do with the ship editor! Also, thank you to whomever put those vids there in the first place! All credit goes to him.

Customising the look of your ship costs money - often a lot of it. That money could be better spent buying weapons and consoles, amongst other things. We all spend hundreds of thousands of energy credits trying to get that perfect 'look'. But what if you could preview the customization of every ship of every faction and tier for free?
My question is: is there a program out there that just lets you mess around with the ship models outside of the game? Just the ship customisation and nothing else? Perhaps a user-made program that allows one to do this?
Of course, you can view your current ship and customise it, but what if you want to mess around with a ship you don't have? What if you want to see what your ship looks like in sector space, or with different lighting?
