Maybe... The only thing to really do with small craft with delta flyer crafting being eaten by the dilithium exchange is the Vault and farm anomalies in exploration sectors. If there were more to do with them (maybe a PVP mode, more missions - particularly if there's one in most FEs and doubly so if FEs are brought out reasonably often, even a shuttle fleet action or STF, like a nebula or atmospheric dogfight).
This is definitely a case of needing a sandbox before I'll want new toys.
I would like to see the Workbee and Scorpion fighter added to both sides. Also, I would like to see the TOS Movie era ships like the spacedock shuttle added to the Federation side. The Scorpion should not be purchaseable until AFTER completeing "The Vault". The workbee should be EC purchacable like the Runabout and b basic type 6/8.
Prior to season 4 when they release the fighters for both sides Cryptic made statements about the possibility of fighter/shuttle only missions and possiblty PvP maps.
How long ago was that?
Don't hold yer breath...
Too make Kerrat mor intersting, it would be neat if players in shuttles/fighters did not aggro borg ship unless they actually attacked one. Right now, if a player comes within 8KM of a Borg ship, that ship attacks. Borg ships should ignore shuttles unless said shuttle attacks first. This would create an extra use for small craft, and open up a new set of strategies for completeing the Kerrat Space war.
