    I'd recommend swapping those two pieces out for new ones then. LEGO's quality control is pretty good, but there's still some variation in the "clutch power" between pieces if they're a different mold, used, etc. If that still doesn't work, I'm pretty sure you can just replace the 3x2 plate with a 3x3 plate, replace the 2x1 with a 2x2, and then lock the modified plate in with inverted curved slope.

    The bridge is probably the wonkiest part of the build, but it certainly should hold together without glue. Mine's lasted a few years now and has been transported to some conventions. Just be sure to pick up the bridge by the neck, not the panels. And if the studs aren't connecting or something, maybe double check that it's built correctly. Should look like pretty much like this: https://i.imgur.com/HNkkJ5q.jpg Looks like some of the pieces are a little loose, but it's not really in danger of coming apart even if I wave it around a bit.

    Hmm, are you building it digitally? The frame's technically illegal but it should work fine in bricks.

    Thanks! Color swapping the technic bricks is generally fine. I'm not sure any gray technic bricks are visible on the outside of the ship. A few are visible along the top of the frame when you access the interior, so if the interior's important to you maybe flip to the end of book 2 and see if you want to keep the visible technic bricks all one color (and possibly replace the blue technic pins, too).
