I just wish for KDF they'll add more carriers options than sci or lobi ship.

That wouldn't earn nearly as much $ for Cryptic erei1 and this game is all about grabbing money.

I would have prefered that carriers were limited to no higher than a Lt.Commander tactical, for me the Karfi is as tactical orientated as a carrier should go. I would like to see more engineer heavy carriers though with 4/4 weapons but only and ensign and/or lt tactical station. Though that would trully stick twos up at cruisers.

Carriers are supposed to appease the science players who to this day are pointing out how weak their ship abilities are.

I personally would like to see a more balanced eng/sci carrier that lacks tactical slots but has some fairly good pets to make up for it's lacking firepower, this would be a general team support craft as it would have to care for it's pets if it is to deal any major damage, though the pet babysitting would have to be balanced against healing team mates.

Preach it! I don't think Cryptic heard you on that one, you might have to say it in all caps. Oh wait, that would imply they read the forums.

Ah aha ha ... you are so funny, hilarious even ...

My impression in the Jem Dread when it come out was "damn, it explodes a lot" because the Jem Dread is not for the fainted hearted, its not a easy to handle ship and suffers from terrible pets besides a very rigid BO layout.

Ship is nothing but a Bortas lacking the flexibility of the Bortas layout (that allows the Bortas to actually tank) with hangar slots, that is how your "15k" Jem Dreads operate anyway, heavy support fire.

Yeah, it's called a company. People create them to produce a product or service. Now get this, because this is crucial, they have to *pay* people to work at this company - they don't just show up out of the kindness of their own heart. This "company" also has to pay all sorts of taxes and fees on top of the wages they pay their employees.

I know, it's crazy but it's true!

The Vo'Quv is still one of the best Carriers in STO, it's a shame that the Fleet Vo'Quv is just so underwhelming

IMO all carriers should have a least a Lt. Commander Science station.

For faction specific carriers, the KDF has 2, which is 1 more better than the Feds, 3 if you count the Mirror Vo'Quv.

The Feds have the Atrox.

To top it off, KDF has better hangar unit selection. In terms of anything carrier related, since the KDF was the original and only carrier faction in the game for a long time, we are in a very good spot.

And all of them are sci oriented ship. The atrox is sci oriented, the Armitage is an escort (tac). Even the Scimitar is tac oriented.

Whats wrong with the Fleet Vo'Quv? You seem to like the regular version if you consider it one of the best. Somehow upgrading its hull, shields and an extra console is bad?

I think the ship can be pretty op in pvp, especially if you catch someone in a 1v1 situation, there is almost no way to beat it.
