Probably because you don't need one?

Besides, BioWare wants to discourage players from spending all of their time on their ships and not at social centers. That's why we don't have things like a mailbox or a GTN on-board.

I think the real question is, why are there workbenches anywhere?

CTRL-right-clicking an item in your inventory has the same functionality as a workbench, anywhere you may be!

There are pretty much two options:
a) No time (aka "laziness"). After changing the way modifying stuff works, they didn't feel like spending time on removing the now useless workstations and the quest that comes with it (and do all the testing to make sure nothing was missed)

b) They already consider changing their mind and reworking stuff to make them useful again. In that case it would be a waste of time to remove them and later put them back in.

And 2V-R8 cooks and cleans for parties.

In all seriousness, perhaps workbenches will be used for legacy-related equipment? I mean that's just a guess; however, I would think there would be a lot of complaints about not being able to mod gear anywhere if we were made to use workbenches. At this point, I'd think that's a bit inefficient to keep having to find a workbench, no?

So, if the workbenches are completely unneeded....WHY did we have one added to the supplies area of the fleet in a patch?
