Really cool idea, really hope I get a chance to try it out. One question though: you say players can choose their own pilot's appearance, callsign, name and pronouns, but the base game only allows for the main character to be edited as far as I know. Would you consider adding links or suggesting methods of editing NPCs to the PDF?
Customizing non-Kickstarter pilots, aka Ronin, was added with V1.9 by HBS IIRC. You go to the pilot in the barracks and click on the customize button below their portrait.
