The usual reply:

Get in touch with FFG's customer support. They are awesome about replacing broken or missing components.

Contact FFG, they're really good at replacing missing components.

Honestly though, I wouldn't sweat it. I have soooo many extra components of just about everything, that if one or two go missing, I don't notice it. For example, Ion tokens come with Y-Wings, Z-95 Headhunters (2 of them), B-Wings, HWK-290, Lambda Shuttle (4 of them), Millennium Falcon, Slave-1 (2 of them), Tantive IV (12 of them), TIE Defender (2 of them), Transport (6 of them). At some point, you're going to end up with WAY more Ion tokens than you could ever possibly use...

More often than not, they'll even replace components gone missing during play (or even damaged, from like a dog). They just say that their official stance is only missing during production, just in case they should say No (like if you said you lost the whole figure). Most of the time, they'll replace it anyways. I mean, they tend to have a lot of left over components from other boards they had to use to replace things with, so it's little skin of their back to keep customers happy.

My personal experience is that I have never had a request denied and I have had a few with them and their german partner over the years. So go for it.

Worst possible outcome: You wasted 10 minutes on an email and get a "No."

Cool - I've emailed customer service - I'm a completionist just in case I ever try to sell the game; don't want the new owner to be a bit short.

Really?? Yeah it's just the token - I only have a Y wing that has the ion weapon - the card is fine. That would be very generous of you; I don't mind waiting for a go/no go reply from FF but if you're happy that would be ace. You'd not miss them?

Most of us have so many we just don't care. If you got just one ship of all the ones that come with these tokens, you'd have 32 tokens. Most of us have multiples of those ships (I personally have 73 tokens), and then there are the official acrylic version (I have 5 of those), and 3rd party acrylic versions, etc. At some point in this game, you end up with so many side tokens you just stop caring...

mentioned above,after a while you accumulate so many tokens it's actually a relief to be able to unload some!
Because,of course,gamers can never,ever throw anything away!
Enjoy.
