Well the only actual carrier you mentioned there is a Flying Litter box. Other one is not a real carrier.

So my suggestion is Fleet Escort Carrier!

Other than that I might be tempted to get the Tholian carrier. Then again I'm use to klingon carriers, and to me the Atrox one horribad carrier compaired to those.

Near as I can tell, the Atrox and Vo'Quv have nearly identical stats [*]. If anything the Atrox has more crew and shields. So, besides "Red Loyalty" - What's the difference between the Vo'Quv and the Atrox that makes the former better?
Siphon Drones.

As a carrier, you pay a lot of mobility and weaponry to get your hangar bays. Your hangars, and by extension the things you can put IN them, are integral to what makes a carrier. That's why I said "B'rolths" and I meant it: This is the single greatest selling point of the Vo'quv. These are tough, high damage pets that will completely own in PVE. The KDF also has access to Slavers (steals loot from enemies) and Siphon Drones. The KDF has a better selection of pets, and the Vo'quv's exclusive pets in particular are absolutely outstanding.

If you must have a carrier on Federation side, get a Recluse. It lacks the awesome pets, but it's a fortress of a ship and very flexible with its universal Commander.

I'm not sure what the most efficient conversion of Zen > EC is, but I would recommend considering the Recluse if that's manageable for the OP.

If you want the best carrier in the game, go to the dark si..... I mean, roll a KDF toon. You can get the Vo'quv for dilithium, and the Karfi is only $20. Also consider this, do you really want to fly a ship that looks like a penis?

ah, yes, the Caitan purple lady-pleaser. Every time I go against one in Ker'rat, I try to see where they airbrushed away the power and speed control.

lol so I'm assuming you guys are the type that assume capitol buildings look like breast, the Pentagon is an **** and the Washington monument is a penis correct?

if it was a vibe, i am pretty sure it wouldn't do much pleasure unless you're into pain, the awkward shape alone would be painful, but players have to associate something with something else to make it make sense.

But anywho back to the OP, A better question would have been what is the best FED carrier and the answer would be the HEC. With so many players running two BFaW's (A natural neutralizer of carriers, might as well call it an active denual system, than carriers become utterly useless no matter how many pets she puts out) Atleast with the hec you can forgo the pets and jump into the fray and duke it out with the best of them. And the tac slot is far from useless, you can toss in a TT, a HY or a torp spread and make good use of it. I personally don't like it because if it was ensign you'd be a stronger weapon and if it was sci youd have more versatility but it's far from useless in the right hands.

I have the Atrox and I think it is the best ship for the Feds. I have my build somewhere here on the forums...

I need a fed carrier that is not a lock box one. I can't buy one without Gold membership.
