Even Carriers utilize some form of action. Sending commands to their pets, activating bridge officer skills, refreshing their defeated pets, and transporting crew on other ships and other such actions all can be recorded by some activity monitor. Basing activity on just one activity is meaningless. It is better to record multiple forms of activity. The minimum activity threshold should be adjusted for each queue. So someone protecting the gate in KSE should get the reward just because they are on an excellent team. Of course if a bunch of ships get through and they didn't even try to stop them should forfeit their reward.
