FLeet Support/Photonic Fleet
 
I'm finally posting something about this. since i started playing and since I've been using science officers. the photonic fleet and even on all characters the fleet support do not work properly and never have. you activate them and they have a 4 in 5 chance of not shooting and disappearing when your in the middle off a massive group of enemy ships....and its been like this since i started playing

Both of these abilities require you to be under fire for them to work effectively. They won't work against enemies that aren't shooting you, have stopped shooting you or have been destroyed. These work perfectly fine in PvP where you are usually being shot at most of the time.

wrong ive had them do it in stfs and mirror events while i have group agro by myself. they do not work properly

I've experienced something similar with Photonic Fleet III however, it may be working as intended. Remember these are relatively weak ships they are not 'real', it is possible they are being 1 shot-ed if you are using them in a mob situation. As an experiment, try deploying when you are on a patrol mission, and down to your last enemy.

The first time we see first see photonic ships is in Voyager Basics, part 1, if I'm not mistaken, and they were more of a distraction to the Khazon, than an actual threat.

They seem to work fine for me, but I'm an aggressive player who is under fire a lot. :D

They do not distribute their shields and have next to no hull, so they probably are dying in massive group. Explosions tend to kill them off regardless as well.

ive seen them be summoned....not take any hits..then vanish....ive seen my FLEET SUPPORT jump in while im surrounded then vanished.....

I've seen it happen too, it tends to be within a small time frame when you aren't under attack.

im ussually under fire constantly. so it has nothing to do with that...they just arnt working.
