That already happens. Haven't you heard of the Emergency Holographic Fighter Pilot? No one actually flies those fighters, that's why you can still launch them even when everyone on your ship is dead.

The convention basically said no aircraft carriers could transit the Bosphorus so the Soviets made a ship they could claim was a Capital Ship and not an Aircraft Carrier under the treaty (the classifications were considered different)... they could just put planes on it if they wanted to later.

*Russian ships are a 'He' not a 'She'.

Cryptic should finally just give all the kids their beloved Battlestars so they can go on and make real Star Trek ships for a change.

Seriously this whole need for Carriers in a star trek game goes beyond me.

lol. still seems like a waste of space. All those controls interfaces projectors and just the space needed for the "pilot".

Skip the middle man and place the ai in direct control. The ships computer could control a whole wing with communications at the speed of light.
Actualy reading things pefore posting will make you look smarter than yelling loudly. Reading comprehension is aparently a lost art.

IF CRYPTIC WERE TO EVER MAKE A FLEET DACOIT, I WOULD SHOW MY GRATITUDE BY PAYING ZEN FOR THE LOW TIER VARIANT AND THE ONE MODULE NEEDED FOR THE FLEET VARIANT, HINT, HINT, ANY LURKING DEVS
Low tier != Fleet Variant price reduction, hint hint.
