I've recently got a Orion Slavers Carrier Pet.

It states on the Item Discription both in-game and on this wiki page: http://www.stowiki.org/Hangar_-_Orion_Slavers

That I may get some EC and Commodities, but not in PvP. But Besides Ker'rat, I don't play PvP anyway.

Well, how often does this happen, and how much EC/stuff do I get? And is there any notification?

It seems that every time your fighter makes a run at a target, there's a small % of it carrying something off. I don't know the exact % but it's probably on par with an energy weapon proc, say around 1% to 2.5%

The only notification of success you get is the same notification you get when you pick up something in space. Just check your system chat log / inventory.

PS Best get two hangars worth of the higher quality slavers as soon as you can. They pay for themselves... fast (well, about 10-15 hours of combat time per hangar should see you break even on them). For this reason, I always deploy Advanced Slavers in PvE.

Sometimes I go for a day with nothing. Other times I come out of a single run of Fed Minefield with 9 contraband to show for it. It really is that random.

Wait, that's almost 4000 Dil! That is Profitable!

I'll stay with my single slot of the Basic ones for the time being, as it will take me a week or two get the Dill for one slot of the Advanced set.

If it did happen, I may have missed it as I almost always have stuff in the Exchange, and May have mistaken it for one of the EC notices from that.

Well it sound like the Ferengi Rules of Acquisition, was right: "34: War is good for business."

Advanced slavers can steal contraband for you. That's nifty.

Elite scorpions can make the mission go by faster and easier, leaving you more time to do anything else you want including playing the exchange.

Something to consider.

There are DOFF missions to do just that. For Klingons, I believe it is available from a security officer on Ganalda. Not sure about Fed side.

There's a officer on the promenade of DS9 who can give you doff assignments to trade in 5 contraband for 2000 dilithium.

Just wanted to note that I'm pretty sure Slavers don't get any loot in STF's .
