More player ships

This is one area of expansion to the game that has been completely overlooked, and I find myself asking why. I can see it being a big seller on the cartel market.

Currently each playable class has one ship (with sith and jedi sharing ship designs). What I'd like to see is a selection of alternative ships that any class can use (or, if that doesnt work, one or more alternative ships for each class) to give us some variety in our mobile housing.

A console could be added to any ship hangar space, allowing the player to swap between the ships that they own (with a short screen blackout as the hangar reconfigures to show the new selected ship). Each ship would obviously need all of the same hooks and amenities that our current ships have, including position points for each possible companion based on class.

Some suggested options:

For the bounty hunter and smuggler classes, I'd like to see another underworld-style ship. The mantis is one of my favorites in the game, and the smuggler ship is a close second, but they've gotten pretty stale after so long. I was always a fan of the hutt line of ships from starwars galaxies , so something with a similar design flair could be fun. Alternatively, something more falcon- or outrider- like in appearance (though obviously an earlier model given the timeframe of the game).

For the imperial agent, I always wanted something that was less james-bond-luxury and more imperial special forces. I'd like to see something in the same design theme as the imperial capital ships or transports/gunships:
I tend to head-canon my imperial agent as more of an imperial special forces trooper, ditching the spy theme for imperial soldier armor (really wish we would've gotten the trooper class as an option for the empire, tbh).

For the sith and jedi, both need another option given that they're already having two classes share one ship design. Not sure what they'd use, but I'm sure there's something out there.

I'd like new ships, that would be nice. Maybe they could also make them decorate-able too. Although I'm wondering if it might be a better idea to make them available after KotFE so as to not have to deal with having to figure out companion placement or story cutscenes. They would also have to make sure the ships work in space combat.

I support customizable ships, even if it is just the outside.
