Unable to purchase certain level-scaling fleet starships due to rank restrictions.

I attempted to purchase a Fleet Vor'ral starship from both the KDF Shipyard and the Fleet Starbase and was unable to do so, despite being in a fleet with a Tier 5 Starbase and having the required fleet credits, fleet modules, and provisions to do so.

Further investigation showed that other Fleet Tier 6 ships were unable to be purchased for the same reason, including the Fleet Qehpu', the Fleet Negh'tev, and the Fleet Mogh, as well as others. The common thread amongst these ships is that despite being level-scaling starships, there is still a required minimum rank of Lt General to obtain them.

If these ships are supposed to be level-scaling, meaning that we can utilize them as early as we can upon joining a fleet, then why are they locked behind a rank requirement? Are they even supposed to be?

I thought I would bring this to your attention and hope for a quick resolution to this issue.
Space Barbie Extraordinaire. Got a question about Space Barbie? Just ask.

Things I want in STO:

1) More character customization options such as more clothing options, letting the toon complexion affect the entire body, not just the head. Also a true RGB color picker applied to all costume and appearance options, which would allow for true appearance customization and homogenous colors instead of "this same exact color looks vastly different on two different pieces."
2) Bridge customization, not bridge packs. Let us pick a general layout and adjust the color palette, console appearance, and chair types, as well as more ready room layout options.
3) Customizable ground weapons, i.e. The aesthetic look of phaser dual pistols but they shoot antiproton bolts. For obvious reasons this would only apply to standard ground weapons.
4) For the love of Q please revamp Plasma Ground Weapons. They look like demented Supersoakers right now.
5) True Vanity Impulse and Deflector effects similar to Vanity Shields.
6) A greater payout for hitting T6 Reputations. Currently it takes more time and resources to get from T5 to T6 than it does to get from nothing to T5. Make that grind really pay out at the end.
7) Mirrorverse Refugee event similar to AoY/Delta/Gamma, complete with new Mirrorverse recruits for all factions.
8) Independent Faction, because yo ho yo ho a pirate's life for me!
