As it is wanted by many users so far, I would like to suggest an interface which can see and handle upgrades on ships through fleet panel.

Previous suggestions and solutions:

I have more than 10 ships staying in more than 4 sectors. It is not impossible to jump to every ship and check upgrades. However, it is a very time consuming process.

Moreover, everytime I get into a ship, order to captain is "silently" unassgined with remaining order icon. I lost my ship with this behavior because "Attack Enemies" became inactive by getting into a ship to check its upgrades.  (Also, this is another issue related to fleet commands)

For those reasons, if we have a way to see and change upgrades on ships in other sectors from an interface, it will be time-effective and much safer.

I think very simple interface should be enough. Only seeing and removing upgrades are enough. Based on latest fleet panel, a pop up panel triggered by placing mouse cursor on a ship's image or an "upgrades" icon right to it can be a possible design.
