My suggestion is to have a way to ask for a rookie ship rather than have it given to us when we dock.
They get thrown at us and are always trashed right away except for exceptional cases.
When they are not trashed they end up being forgotten for years and just polute the personal assets window.
A button to ask for one in the ship hangar would solve the problem.
I would help with our often chaotic assets management and still help for those times when we need rookie ships.
