Another GX player I suppose?

Romur is its the yellowstone Runabout.
I honestly use whatever I like looking at at the moment, since I consider the GX and Akira only funships anyway....

I like the Elite Peregrines, for the federation look. Although statistically the Elite Scorpions are the best all rounder, fighter wise. Yellowstone's are probably the best shuttle

Feds don't have a good pet. Get the scorpions, they work.

Depends on what you are looking for.

For harassers, you can't beat the Yellowstone shuttles. They have a tetryon warp plasma (eject warp plasma) and a tractor beam 3. They are armed with phaser beams and chroniton torpedoes.

The elite delta flyers are useful for depleting or getting through shields with tachyon beam 3. They have transphasic torpedoes and phaser beams.

The Elite peregrine fighters are ok, since they have quantum torpedoes.

The elite scorpions have high damage if they can stay alive, thanks to the high yield plasma torpedoes. Though those same torpedoes are targetable and can be destroyed unlike the peregrine's quantum torps.

The type 10 shuttles (which I have never used) are tougher than fighters, and you can launch up to 6 of these. Their damage is lower than other pets, but would be good for absorbing faw spam and general harassment. They would also be good for soaking up mines and high yield torpedoesI suppose.

The other Fed pets are uh...not so great.

Yes there are

I decided to go with Yellowstone Runabouts for my new Fleet Dreadnaught Cruiser Edit: Judging by the comments in this thread, I made the right choice.
I went to the Delta Quadrant and the Kazon stole my stupid T-shirt. Also, my pet hamster that died when I was a kid is now a Kobali.

I don't think there is a "best".

Yellowstones (and other runabouts) do poor damage, but you don't use them for the damage. They're a "control" pet.

Elite Peregrines are better than most people give them credit for; their quantum torpedoes do consistent, moderate-high damage and their CRF strips shields pretty well.

Elite Scorpions wield a kinetic hammer against large, unshielded targets.

Elite Widows let you cheat and spread APB everywhere... until they fix that bug.

Elite Swarmers are great all-arounders.
