Sorry, I don't know if this applies to the Pre but if I understand you correctly, you want the TP to open to a tab other than the first one at start up. If this is correct, can't you just put everything you want there and move out what you don't want?

Can we change launcher tabs
It mentions a patch called Add Launcher Tabs but that was before Suborbital came out.
