In the beginning of the Imperial campaign, the game forces the player to buy a Firestorm-class frigate. Personally I (and likely many other people) have no preference for this ship, and would much rather buy something else, like a Cobra Widowmaker.
So, I am suggesting to change this moment in such a manner that would allow the player to pick whatever escort ship they want, rather than forcing them. So, if someone wants a Cobra Widowmaker or a Sword, they shall have it. There is literally no point in wasting precious money on a Firestorm I don't need.
I am sure it will be a pleasant change for many new people.
