Suggestion for Hangar Pets & Buff
I am a recent Carrier Pilot, and I enjoy this new profession. However, I find something rather illogical in regard to Captain buff skills, such as EPS, Engineering buff, Tactical buff, and (possibly) Science buff. These buffs are group buff, which means that whenever I turn it on, everyone in my team will get it - except my hangar pets :rolleyes:

So, I hope the Dev would reconsider to allow these buffs to also have identical effect on hangar pets. Worrying about hangar pets become stronger, again, does not make any sense to me.

The only thing that seems to affect pets is the flight doff.

I have another suggestions: new generic frigates that can be used in all carriers.

I would rather they make the Class buffs passive like they used to be.

As for pets larger than fighters - Technically that is what Fleet Support is supposed to do.

Though it has been asked often enough for players to get multiple ships under their command like Bridge Officers.
Wether that ends up being an extension of the Duty Officer system = Duty Ships
Actually being able to have permanant NPC ships that fly with you as part of your 'fleet'

The much more unlikely suggestion was to allow players to use their 'spare' ships as NPCs.
It would increase the demand for ship slots quite a bit and make use of all the ships people arent using.
Not to mention it adds a lot more merit to the idea that players are actually Admirals and not glorified Captains.

Well the voq and karfi have frigates.
I am sure starfleet vessels have the same thing. I don't really know since I don't play that side.

we have crappy and weak, Delta Flyers and Runabouts to take the place of firgates.

I wanna see mirandas and Defiants. (Mirandas-blue, Defiants-Purple non cloaking of course)

In general, for federation hangar pets, we have less powerful pets compared to Klingons. Somehow this is something familiar :P

Certainly if the Dev is willing to balanced Feds and Klings hangar pets, it would be very nice. Jem'Hadar Dreadnaught hangar pets could be considered as the Dev's attempt to reach this balance although the requirement of having the actual Jem'Hadar Attack Escort to obtain the ultimate hangar pets for the Dreadnaught may render this.

As a starter though, which is the easiest to do for the Dev, is allowing any group buffs to affect hangar pets. Pretty please :D

Best fed hanger pets
So far, from what I can see from thier performance, The elite scorpions and the advanced peregrines are about the best you can get on fed side. And yeah Im flying the Dread carrier right now but have very little chance of getting the jemi attack ship pets cuase of the rearity of teh escort i have to have to get them. Devs pretty much screwed anyone that wasnt able to get a jemi escort when they were avail out of getting the attack ship pets..Unless.. Is the jemi escort avail in the new dominion lock boxes?

Some people sell the Jem'Hadar Attack ship on the exchange. But their price tags are :eek::eek::eek: Can I still get the original lock boxes containing JH Attack ship now? Or, was the JH Attack ship came only from Reinforcement DoFF pack? I forgot, it's been awhile.
