it also could be that they didnt want to have to go through and make seperate animations for having docking/undocking of one while the other is out.... since it's possible that the animations only work when the odyssey is complete.
You are correct. Who knows, maybe they will relent and allow it eventually.
I figure we'll see this ability in the c-store around x-mas. it will be another console we'll have to have to give our ships the ability to deploy both. After they think up of what they'll give the klinks to balance things out. Though the klinks will still whine about it.
