Sure and delete the Photo Fleet skill... replace it with something else. And kill fleet support. And fine .. kill the carrier... give us an intrepid clone. Restrict all ships to max one mine launcher. Done. I am not even being a jerk... its not a bad idea.
Honestly the more I think of the idea of a one mine launcher restriction, it might even make mine patterns worth something... and it would force people to pay for there TCM spamming junk, by eating a slot for 1 min.
Sounds good to me. Do away with all NPC spam. No more photonic fleet, boarding parties, Fleet support, Mines or floating turrets. Of course it will make the new Orion/Gorn and carrier ships unplayable as well.
Give the KDF a real war craft instead.
What of the "Hull splitting" Galaxy-X? would its saucer beconsidered NPC spam now?
