Some KDF hangars not usable on Jem'Hadar HEC
 
(Advanced) Orion Interceptors, Tachyon Drones and Marauding Force Hangars (all obtainable from KDF C-Store ships) cannot be used on Jem'Hadar Heavy Escort Carrier, as the ship class was not included in their description. Orion Slavers do not have this issue, nor does any other KDF hangar that is not restricted to only one class.

There's absolutely no reason whatsoever for these hangars not to be usable on Escort Carrier, so I assume this is an oversight. Please fix it asap.

Ticket ID #1,463,183.

My name is Bloctoad and I approve this message.

Still nothing about this in the new patch notes. Bumping the thread in vain hope someone from Cryptic will actually notice and acknowledge this.

But I guess baloons are more important...

Still waiting for a response. Apparently this also applies to disruptor quad cannons.

It's a KDF issue. Meaning, we won't get one. Should this affect FED players this would get fixed immediatelly. KDF-only though... either soon(tm) or never.

I posted to their FB wall about it. Squeaky wheel and all that.

Uhhh this isn't a bug or glitch. This is intended although one could argue that the romulan elite scorpions can be launched from a vo'quv but at same time you wouldn't be able to launch a fek'ihr or jem hadar pet out of a vo'quv. Its not something as pressing as a lot of the bugs on KDF that are thrown out as its working as intended like the decloaking bug. Or the matter of fact that the account server seems to be dead today.

It's hard not to just say "You're not a dev to say if it's a bug or not." So this is me not saying it. :P

Vo'Quv and Kar'fi have had BoP's and Fer'Jai restricted to their respective carrier. With those there is a size argument and an argument that something unique should be left to each one. The 3 Orion pets have never been restricted. They are small, so from a size standpoint they are exactly what you would expect from a hybrid carrier. Orion Slavers can be slotted on the HEC, so there is no faction/race argument to be made. Even S'kul fighters can be slotted, which require the Kar'fi to be purchased in order to unlock. So every precedent points to these being usable on the Jem HEC.

Further, it's in Cryptic's best interest to allow these hangars to be slotted. They are the only option for a cc hangar aside from siphon drones; any Jem HEC pilot who wants a useful pet without resorting to the still-broken siphons will be motivated to purchase them.

Sure there are other issues, if you want to post about the decloaking bug on their FB wall be my guest. This issue has my panties in a wad.

As I recall there hasn't been any confirmation that this is working as intended, so until a dev comes and states otherwise, this is a bug or an oversight.

And if they do come and say this is working as intended, we'll call BS, as there's absolutely no reason C-Store Hangar pets shouldn't be usable on this class of ship, considering all the other smallcraft hangars work without issues. Those are not unique hangars restricted to only one class of ship (like Fek'Ihri Frigates or Stalker Fighters), they could be used on any carrier vessel up until now.

The same thing goes for Disruptor Quad Cannons - you want to argue that this is working as intended as well, even though FED's Phaser Quad Cannons work just fine?

BTW. todays patch isn't going to fix this, sadly. I think we may need to pass this out to a specific dev for them to even acknowledge this.

Another week, another patch, issue still not fixed...

One would think that adding a ship type to several items' descriptions wouldn't be that hard...
