Once Per Faction Ship Components - Question/Complaint

Posted on Sunday, August 28, 2016

So I like this expansion that awards players with these stronger one per faction components.  Yes, I can create one strong ship excellent.  Oh no I just developed a new engine and forgot to put it on that ship.  No problem I'll just upgrade it.  Oh I can't as it seems that not only can this only be placed on one ship, I am unable to retrofit said ship with other new technology?  So why is this?  I understand the one component per faction, however, you should be able to continue to upgrade said ship as many times as you'd like until it's destroyed.

Is this a bug or by design?  I hope it's a bug and will be fixed...
