Oh, god. Not another "give the Feds a carrier naow!" thread. First off, the search function is your friend. There's already a ton of threads arguing both for and against this thing.
With that out of the way, as has been stated on numerous occasions, the Feds ain't getting a carrier. Someone above was even nice enough to quote Stormshade. The carriers aren't the be-all-end-all of ship design. The fighters can be easily handled by a competent group of players and the only reason that the KDF wins so much is because they are able to coordinate better than the Feds. I've seen both sides win matches.
My biggest problem with seeing carriers on both sides isn't due to the flawed thinking that one single ship type constantly wins PvP matches. Hell, if that was all it was about, then you could have the damn things. It's about faction uniqueness. The Federation has its signature stuff and the KDF has its own unique feel. To want to homogenize the factions by giving one side everything the other has it makes the game dull and unenjoyable.
So, yeah. No carriers coming your way and to constantly beg and whine for it makes them even less likely to put them in the game.
