Federation Flight Deck Cruiser?
 
The Orions have them: Cruisers that have one weapon slot less, but a hangar added. Starfleet has a a flight deck escort and an outright science carrier, but no cruiser type ship of the kind.


Cruisers are popular ships. Wouldn't it be logical to add a flight deck cruiser to starfleet's fleet?

Don't take this the wrong way, but please, stop posting total nonsense.

Carriers were supposed to be a KDF thing ONLY. Anything involving fighters was supposed to be KDF ONLY. They gave feds Carriers (Atrox, and then the Recluse), and then they gave them a high DPS ship with fighters (Armitage). STOP. Seriously. Let the KDF have SOME things that are KDF only. The flight deck cruiser is one of the few things that the KDF have left that are theirs and theirs alone.

So stop being a typical fed and whining that you want something the KDF has.

Or better (speaking from my KDF toon here): you can have your flight deck cruiser when we get raptors that can carry fighters, or even better, raptors that can cloak (wait we can already do that), and have 5 tac consoles (nope, don't have that yet). Or when we get science ships. Or when the Chuck Norris Class Battleship (basically a jet black Oddy with an impulse modifier of 200, turn rate of 90 degrees per second, shield modifier of 5.0 with 10 shield generators, infinite hp with a base passive defense of 30% to avoidance and damage reduction, 10 weapon slots fore and aft, 20 of each console type that have no diminishing returns and is armed with roundhouse-kickarrays that use up 0 energy and do 60k damage per shot (before applying skills) with infinite accuracy bonus and 360 degree firing arc with a range of a couple light years) is put into this game.

Or I can just say what most KDF players would say in a single two letter word.

NO.

There are way too many damn carriers in the game already. You have one that looks like a blue velvet dong and another that is literally a fighter jet lined with torpedo tubes that also launches small fighters. You're not spoiled for choice enough already?

Almost stopped reading here; was bored, without taking anything the wrong way.

Am all for that, but that's not the subject here.

Nope. More choices! Especially since I would want a cruiser that has at least some pets to command (with carrier commands), so that the Engineer can fulfill a role in space that he is supposed to and does on the ground.

I am aware that some people don't like carriers at all; obviously this thread is not for them.

That's covered by DHCs on their cruisers. Which is all they need to pwn everything anyway.

are you serious a Cruiser for fedside thta has the ability to launch fighters ??? I want to know what your smoking..... the Feds have been given plenty of the stuff that was "supposed" to be uniquely KDF... Cloaking device, carriers, and now the lockboxes that give the feds all of the cool console toys that we KDF players Like to use....

give it a rest already... you wanna play with the cool toys that the KDF gets... make a KDF character and level it up... spend a few thousand Zpoints buy the ships you want and have a blast... seriously before to long there will be no playable KDF faction. Why ? because it will ALL be available to the Fedrats if Cryptic and PWE keep giving in to the demands of these "wanna be" Klingons in Fed ships.....

I don't know about your KDF Flight Deck Cruiser (if you have 1) but mine has 8 weapons, so I'm not quite sure were you get this less weapons thing from. The only disadvantage the Marauder has is, that it's obviously an impossible task to add a fleet version.

With Cryptics history in mind I'm pretty sure Feds will get Flight Deck Cruisers sometime, even a Fleet version I guess. If not, at least a lockbox ship will take care of this problem sooner than later.

Imo they need a fleet true carrier but you have the flight deck escort and KDF does not.
