Absolutely disappointed with this as well.
I don't do OPs at all, and so far the space stuff was at least giving me the chance to collect a few of these comms.
After all the hits the space missions got lately and now removing these rewards, I don't see any reason to fly them anymore at all. So far we can't even trade in marks for new crafting box stuff etc.
Well, I spent 3x cartel coins on the shop to get my two toons equipped, bought and crafted the rest of the ship's gear. Guess I should have saved my money and time for something else
