With all the recent release in regards to carriers or flight deck Carrier, The Federation needs a true Carrier befitting of the name.

Sure we have the Caitian Kitty Carrier and though they are part of the Federation, their vessel is not an official one.

We have the Artimage Flight Deck Carrier - A plus that competes against the KDF Orion Flight Deck Carrier. However; the Atrox is dead last in the true Carrier department in comparison to the KDF OFFICIAL Faction Carrier and the now Recluse Carrier.

The Recluse is the superior Carrier out of three pound for pound.

I am hoping that Cryptic releases an Official Federation of Planets Carrier that is on par with the Recluse and the KDF Carrier.

Give us a Typhon class type Carrier or something that resembles a true blue Carrier but wearing the Federation banner.

It would be nice to expand on the Fighter selections as well as implement official Federation type bombers that pack a whallop against shields and armor.

Hell something with a dive bomber formation or something, or strifing run formation.

Well the atrox is still the largest ship in the game so atrox > anything but true enough that's the one thing the atrox has going for it.

More carriers I will always be down for just remember to let the atrox keep its place at the top.

Since KDF has 2 carriers I guess it would be only fair if the feds got a new one.

"Fair"?

Then it would be fair if the KDF got:
- a 5 tac console raptor
- the equivalent of the Vesta
- a c-store flight-deck escort
- 3-4 science fleet ships

As soon as the KDF gets this then it's fair for the Fed to get a new carrier.

Id like them to upgrade the atrox before we get another carrier.

I have a better idea,
replace all hangar slots with universal facing weapon slots.
no more carriers.

-= ISE: 12:19 -=- CSE 12:41 -=- KASE 11:59 -=- HSe 8:06 total =-
-= KAGE 5:43 =-

Not going to happen. They will rather sell new carrier in lockbox, than update existing ships....hence why there are dozens of obsolete ships.

^^ Spot On ^^

to add to your list

+5 Tac Console B'Rel Bird Of Prey

`my reasons? the B'Rel BoP is a true glass cannon, exactly what ALL escorts should be, it should have +5 tac console.
most escorts have hugs hulls and MASSIVE damage and the ability to tank and defend itself better than almost every other ship, The B'Rel has low hull and should have massive damage exactly what people who want to DPS everything should be flying! ... Period.

to the OP, the Atrox is fine, to be a carrier you depend on your fighters, as for the Vesta its a horrid ship, its the most vile statement of a ship.
I played from Open Beta and I still continue to play, during the first and second year of STO Tactical Captains where able to use Science Powers better than Science Captains who had spec'd their skills to that power.
in turn cryptic down toned every skill that the Tactical Captains used... the Vesta just gives Tactical Captains the edge over true Science/Science Captains.

as for the Armitage Escort Carrier, its a vile statement against the KDF, who continue to this day to recieve nothing. maybe a mirror ship in this box and mirror ship in that box.

I am currently unsupervised, anyone who knows me will tell you that this will most likely lead to trouble. =3
I'd post constructively but I'm too busy dodging the Forum MOD's due to my usual posts.

doesn't the dark anit-matter cost lobi though, and doesn't that ship have a fuel requirement?
