And just how long do you think an NX or Perigrine will last in PvP???

If it's T1 or Shuttle PvP just as long as anyone else. My Fleet regularly has Shuttle nights where we team-up and go into Exploration zones and do missions that way. We also do PvP that way when the mood strikes us. There's a lot of ways to have fun rather then just T5 versus T5, and not everyone PvPs. I'd bet the majority of STO players never PvP. I know I seldom do unless I go to do the Ker'rat mission or with my Fleetmates in the above situations.

And I would love to use one in STF's , but it wou;ldnt work there as well. As far as T5 vs T5, when all your toons are maxed (all 5), and you dont want to start a new one, thats pretty much what you are looking at.

I have 13 alts (6 VAs) and that's after deleting 6 others Admirals. There's lots of ways to make the game interesting. My current low-level alt is leveling up doing Foundry Missions. It's a change of pace from the normal grind - and a much slower pace as well.

I really don't have that much time to do that many characters, I'd rather see more content being made. I just tend to spend time in PvP and working with the fleeties.

I bought a Peregrine just to troll Vault with it. And it's fun as hell for that. The 400 C-points are almost insignificant, and I didn't expect it to be a Tactical Escort equal. Hell, I didn't even really expect it to be all that effective. But it is fun. The game engine doesn't lend itself at all to fighter combat, so if I want my space-fighter fix I fire up Starshatter or X-Wing Alliance.

Thats pretty much all you can do with it, troll the Vault. Im not saying it should be warship potent, but I'd like to see it really really hard to hit, a higher defence if you will. Then it could be more entertaining.

I agree that shuttles/fighters should be harder to hit ... and I like the idea previously mentioned that shuttles/fighters should be invisible to the Borg until a shuttle/fighter attacks (which would give a fleet or team some VERY interesting combat options vs. the Borg.

I would totally want to attack a Borg fleet with a squadron of shuttles/fighters that can start with a (sneak attack) and then allow the starships to come in as the heavy hitters.
