Don't add a t5 Fed Carrier. Add a full blown Battleship instead.

Perhaps we are looking at everything wrong. The klink carrier recently got fixed where people could no longer spamm every ship type. Now what you get is a slow moving, slow turning, and huge target that has 3 forward mounts and 3 rear mounts for weapons. Now, if you are like me and use cannons you would probably load up on 3x 180 degree cannons in the front or 3x 360 degree turrets up front and an additional 3x 360 degree turrets for the rear. I was never much of a fan for the carrier to begin with, but I do have one and think it is a situational ship at best. Basically the ships it can deploy now are little more than a stepping stone to the ship that deployed them.
Do I think the carrier is a powerful ship? It still can be, but only for those that really want it to be powerful. I am not specced or have the correct weapons or gear to use a carrier correctly, so I dont and instead fly a BoP mainly with my Negvah on standby.
My post a little ways up I think could be used by the cryptic staff in implimenting more ships tot he game. And to save on time modeling ships simply use a base model for several tiers like they have done with the BoP for example. I would love to see a VoDleh at T3, T4, and T5 as well as a Ulysses at T3, T4, and T5. The basic models would be the same, but things like visible weapon mounts and the size of the saucer section and warp naceles for example would get slightly larger and more distinct in a way.
Do I think the feds should get a carrier? Not really, but if they get one we wouldnt have to read threads about getting them and not getting them anymore.
