My Aircraft Carrier … It’s the ship that made the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs.

It's big. Very similar to the smuggler ship, in fact. The X-wings and Y-wings too, are larger than what you seem to think they are.

Also - sometime in the year before the game launched, it was stated that the ships are a 1:1 ratio. What they meant by this (and also stated), is that the exterior of the ship is constructed so that it looks like it would actually hold what you see while inside it.

Riot, the OP's problem does not seem to be actually tied to the size of the ship. It's more a reaction to item two of my last post. If they made the ships have realistic interiors, then they'd be screaming about the incredibly awkward camera. It's a function of the way the game is designed, that player occupied spaces have to be about 2-4 times larger, in relation to the PC's and NPC's then they would reasonably be. It's why all the buildings and enterable spacecraft in the game are freaking HUGE. It's so the camera works right. There was a Dev Diary about this back before launch, that explained it better then I can. I'm sure it's on the website somewhere...

Still, Kotor and Mass effect had good sizes for their ships. And the camera didn't go all funny. Why can't they replicate this?

You can. Just be in a group and have your party follow you aboard. They come on with you.

Also keep in mind these ships need to be big enough to have room for 6 people to live on, have a cargo bay, engine room, cockpit, medical bay, air lock, escape pod. Did you expect them to be the size of a mini-van?
