Default Autonomous Starships

I'm trying to confirm what I'm reading in the T5 rules. Correct me if I'm wrong.

A ship's computer with a brain can control a number of functions simultaneously equal to the number of the computer (BIS +1).

Consoles are required to connect to control panels. A computer cannot connect directly to a control panel.

Consoles can monitor and adjust systems they control without a user or a brain, up to a point, like a life support system.

Consoles require a user, or a brain, or connection to a computer with a brain to control a system actively, like maneuvering.

Autonomous control could entail all consoles with brains and a computer without a brain, or a computer with brain and some or all consoles with brains, or a large computer with brain and no consoles with brains.

Consoles are sized and costed assuming a sapient user, so they're overkill for an autonomous setup. Pick a cramped one to minimize this.

Include a maintenance robot, workshop, small cargo hold, and tonnage for access passageways. For docked maintenance, consider adding some life support and add an air lock (personnel, cargo, or both).
