Make sure your colony ship did not become over sized with a upgrade or anything. It is easy to do if not careful.

You can design your own colony ship to be smaller, if you haven't the size technology available.

Always design the colony ships to be bare bones as well. They are only good for one trip anyway, no point in wasting money on components that aren't needed.

This is a bug that is still not fixed for some reason even with the latest patch 1.9.0.8. I reported this already. No colony ship design at all for humans.

1.9.0.6 Freighters, Construction Ship Explorers wont upgrate to Warp Bubble
http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=3348506

And warp bubble is still not added to each ship. I have to manually edit each and every one of them which is a pain to do.

I hope the devs fix this soon.

Unfortunately, I believe this is currently "working as designed". When you auto-upgrade a design, the code looks through the components and checks if you have the ability to build a more advanced component that is on the upgrade path for the component - and replaces it if it finds one. With no-warp ships, there is no warp engine to replace - so the auto-upgrade code replaces nothing with nothing.

Sucks, but that's how it's designed.

Should Elliot change the behaviour? I absolutely agree with you.

Current auto design dont fit in const.yard size. But this information shows in design screen then you click to colony ship design. Not so transparent for player as i expect.
