I couldn't find another forum post with this idea so here it is:
It would be fantastic to be able to select which ship you would prefer to use prior to the start of all PvE & PvP matches. Just to have the selection screen appear while waiting for game to start would allow users to have more customization of their ships and layouts. Plus, add more fun and creative way to play these missions.
For example, I prefer my Nova class starship overall, but would love to take my Runabout into the Azura mission, without having to go to a starbase (or into my ship) just to change for a single mission.
Just wanted to share this idea and see what the community thinks.
