1. If the scout ship followed your example, its bridge would need the same 3 to 5 man crew as any other freighter. Then the one-size-fits-all bridge makes sense, but the crew rules are wrong.

2. The "advanced comms and sensors" are a red herring. ANY 100 ton ship reguardless of its mission would require 20 tons of bridge. If the comms and sensors are indeed exceptional, then the Scout Bridge needs ADDITIONAL tonnage above and beyond the basic 20 ton commercial bridge that even a tanker would need.
