There are also reports that it cannot mount the scorpion fighters... I bet it has to do with the flags it has, both the STFs and the inability to use the scorpions.

Umm, just not that right now its a bit broken.
  • You can't take it into STF's.
  • You can't mount Stalkers on it (although it might be intentional, the dev patch notes are a bit vague.)
The first is supposed to be fixed tonight, the second, I'd like a Dev to reply on if possible.

The problem is that the ship is designated as a new class, Escort Carrier. Items like consumable fighters are tagged to work only with certain classes of ships to prevent shuttles or fighters to use them, and have not been updated to include this new class.

Shame on you Cryptic.

There are other things that are needed more desperatly than another carrier.

The tooltip for the stalkers state that it can be used on a "Carrier", while the other fighters can be used on "Carrier, Escort Carrier". I believe it is working as designed
