You mean like Star Wars? Nobody could possibly want to play an Imperial or Sith, right?

Actually the BoP is a Raider. Both Frigates and Raiders are a smaller class of ship than Escorts. As the Defiant is an Escort, a Klingon hanger would require the capability of launching Raptors, an Escort class ship, in comparison.
All cloaks should be canon.

A spotlight that the Devs will hopefully widen to include more than just the feds...

Still I do not understand why the feds want another carrier when they have some excellent ones already.

Grump.

(kicks a rock)

(They are, however, some of my favorite ship designs in the game)
I find it funny how weak the Gorn ships are statwise compared to the feds since memory beta mentions that the Gorn had superior ships in many aspects when they first encountered them.
Did the Gorn get lazy and stop thier R&D?

In theory the Federation's racial diversity is a great asset towards speeding up R&D.... in theory.

But, as for the OP, sure there's a Kilrathi.... er... Caitian carrier for Feds who REALLY want one. Truth is this discussion is here because there will always be more. It's an MMO, MMOs will always have new things.

I will agree to this if and only if the KDF get two new endgame flight deck ships in Tac and Sci flavors.

To sum it up in a single word, No. It will NEVER be time for a true, Federation, carrier. No place for carriers, of either faction, in Star Trek. Unfortunately, if Cryptic thinks they can beat a few nickels out of it, you might see Miss Alabama, flying around, naked, in a dune buggy.

Don't get me wrong, I am 100% on board with a KDF Major update and revision. Hopefully season 8 will be a good start on the matter.

However;

I also agree that the Federation should get an official carrier - since I stated before the Atrox is a horrid ship.

I hate to recommend this but the Curry Class may be a good candidate - only thing is its one ugly @ss ship.

http://database.obsidianfleet.net/wi...le=Curry_class

It can be made a true Federation Carrier with the option to have a saucer separation sequence.

I know its a heinous beast, but with Cryptic artists, they can transform it into a thing of beauty.
