Lol, I don't blame you. I do think that's part of why it won't be introduced though. Many of the aspects of the game HG have introduced lately have been designed to make you explore otherwise unpopular areas. The LS quest line sends you to uninhabited or abandoned systems. To get upgrades reliably you need to pulse around in red uncharted systems. The weekend missions have you hunting for or crafting rare items etc. It's all aimed at making players explore the galaxy. Something in the game already that gives players a reason to explore is finding just the right ship, in just the right colour. If they allowed configuration or colour changes.. that's one less reason to explore.
