Combat pet, means its around when you launch it until its either "disabled" (meaning, destroyed) or you send the recall order and it docks back.

I know Al does not want it be MVAM capable, but it make no sense to limit it from having both the saucer separation and the escort to separate at the same time. I do agree that that we should not be allow to pick which part to fly. I fleet the captain should be in the battle bridge

It doesn't saucer sep and launch the escort at the same time. Those are both abilities tied to two different consoles that come with two different versions of the ship. You can pick which one to activate at whichever time you like.

On STOKED Al said they wouldn't, but I do not know it they would actually implement it so that only on could be used at a time.

It's quite clearly spelled out in the stats that were linked in a few pages ago. Both those abilities are tied to separate consoles, ergo, they are activated and function independently of each other.
Besides, as was stated, they want to keep MVAM like features in the exclusive field of the Prometheus/Advanced Escorts, and launching the saucer and the escort at the same time is suspiciously MVAM-like.

They should allow you to launch the escort craft and the chevron at the same time. Otherwise, why waste a console slot on having both console equipped? And if people aren't going to get all consoles, why buy more than one variant from the C-store? Put simply, allowing someone to launch all Odyssey console pets at once gives us our money's worth and a shared cooldown does not.

Because the consoles themselves are packaged with the specific variant of the Odyssey that they're meant to compliment. It's just that, if you happen to buy all three variants, you can install those other consoles onto the specific variant of the Odyssey that you happen to like captaining. The consoles only work on these +1 versions of the Odyssey.
It's like, if you bought the special +1 versions of the other starships, the ones that come with the booster modulator or the tracking torpedo, you can also install those on pretty much any other ship. The obvious trade-off is you sacrifice a stat-boosting console in order to get the special ability console.
It's called "game balance".
And who said anything about the pet launching consoles sharing a cooldown? I haven't read anything to that effect, or read anything that would allow me to even infer such a conclusion. If I have, I must have definitely missed it somewhere.

Yes but I dont like that, the Prometheus/ small size means it should not separate period but it does, meaning its already the only escort with that ability, not unique enough?

And on top of that they can pick what section to use, something I doubt it could as according to Memory Alpha "automation systems ... operating semi-independently and in concert" that seems to me that it means it lacks a battle bridge and all sections are operated from the Main Computer from the Bridge, unlike the Enterprise-D that had a bridge for controlling the Stardrive section.

Funny how the ship that should get to pick what part we wanted to fly lacks it and the one that should not allow that is the one that does ...

The C-Store Odyssey is not a +1. The free ones were just more like prototype according to Al on STOKED.
