Agreed. Get some major bugs fixed, but when the time comes I'd like to see a standardization and expansion of Carrier ships.
I'd definitely like to see a "pet" UI that shows us the number of fighters remaining and their status.
I'd also think it would be neat to have a new BOff type specifically for carriers, along with stations specifically for them. Ensign and Lieutenant stations for escort carriers, Lieutenant and Lt. Commander stations for flight deck cruisers, and Commander stations for high-level fleet carriers (just as an example). Call him a Wing Commander or something similar and make his abilities increase defense, damage, or heal your hanger pets. Maybe at top tiers he can generate few extra temporary fighters or something.
I know it would require some additional AI programming, but I'd love to see carrier pets that drop mines.
