I think the missions that they were demoing aren't going to actually let you keep the ship, but I could be wrong.

I know in piracy, the difficult part is the boarding process rather than getting the ship back. In order to board a ship you need a collar (correct size for the ship) and tractor beam, which use up weapon slots. You also have to take down shields and destroy all the engines, including the maneuvering thrusters, without destroying the ship. If you've played Arena Commander you know how easy it is to destroy a little ship if you're shooting it. And then if you can successfully do that and dock, then you have to fight your way onboard, get through the booby traps, and kill the crew before they just hit the self destruct button.

So for piracy at least, flying it back is the last of your issues.
