Fyi, there are pets w/AoE decloaking capabilities. They've been around for awhile, people prefer to spam TBs/phasers though.

I don't like pet spam in general and in this game they're poorly balanced (siphon, ad frigs for kdf, TB/phaser spam Feds). The way the resists work, people's skills do a better job resisting Boff abilities than pets and consoles which is upside down imo.

Really what they need to do is treat pets like Boarding party and make people lose crew in a fight when their pets die and not regen the crew until the ship launching the carrier respawns.

In reality Cryptic can make $ off of pets so you'll see more of them and they won't be balanced so you can count on power creeping abilities.
