Great suggestions everyone, frankly I'm tempted to suggest Cryptic offers us an offduty costume with a purse and an epohh inside it a la paris hilton just to troll you elandarksky . I like that mount idea, Targ mounts, Epohh mounts, Giant Tribble mounts...? That tribble mount reminds me of the beach ball mount in Free Realms...that would be funny.
As for the OP, I'm ok with the idea of further pet development, if that includes Cryptic doing something about the way we store pets, as my links above explain.
I would love to see Combat Epohhs, though I'd rather see a Targ Breeding minigame that resultsed in Combat Targs, first. Not to mention they need to make it so BOs can slot and use pet devices (which currently, they don't seem to do).
However, I have to agree with Elandarksky and vote against playing Epohh dress-up. There's too many other canon costume/uniforms, assets, etc that are not (yet) in-game, not to mention clipping/bug-fixes on existing features, that need resolution, to waste Dev time on foo-fooing-up your Little Princess Epohh Paris Hilton-style.
When my KDF toons get more Foot-wear options, Off Duty clothes, and more colors, when my Feds can wear a "ripped-Kirk shirt", change the rank on their WoK uniforms, find an iron for my over-wrinkled Troi uniform, and my female toons can wear any Communicator without clipping into their (only medium-sized) breasts, then we can talk about your Omega Force Epohhs.

It's simple--but I'd love to be able to interact with the epohh (or other pets) when they're activated. It would be funny to be able to play fetch with them, rub their bellies, pet them, or otherwise play with them like pets.
Do you like story-based Foundry missions? If so, please check out my mission, "Finding Lascaux."
Pet battling would be pretty interesting and wouldn't go against PWE's style. Now while I agree with the long standing issues, being addressed there's no reason why with their every increasing staff size they wouldn't be able to have someone working on a pet project (pun intended). In the end it's all in Cryptic's hands, I just figure it would be a funny to make a cute little suggestion and hope everyone had some fun in the thread.
+1 to this. Star Trek Online is now full with non-combat pets and is lacking in combat pets (consumables or not) also some of torpedo platforms(including their obtaining assignments) has been removed from game, such as tricobalt platform .
