I got my new carrier last night and after my last post for what i got to aim for it come down to what i need to use untill ill get the good elite scorpion fighters, the carrier comes with Stalker Fighters.

I do have some scorpion fighters i got in a quest which i can get a fell of how it all works, but what i need to know is i have the Dilithium for one set of Advanced Stalker Fighters but is this the best fighter to use to start with.

I find that a great combination is one Advanced Stalker Hangar and one Scorpion Hangar. Unless you really really want to strip shields or stop cloakers or other Science Vessels/Carriers in which case 2 bays of Advanced Stalkers really do the trick.

Elite Stalkers and Elite Scorpions. Best best friends for an Atrox, you kill cloak just fine while dumping plasma all over them.

Best of all, they come in tiered flavors allowing you to upgrade them as you go.

Er, to be clear, unless they've changed the quest, those fighters are a Device slot, and they do _not_ respond to carrier commands. Otherwise, what they all said: stalker/scorpion. There's an argument for keeping a runabout or two around in case you get stuck doing crowd control - with all the wells and tbrs an Atrox can set and a full swarm of danubes, you could thoroughly piss off all of the things. Not as much damage, but certainly fun to watch.

Stalkers and Scorps are a pretty good combo. Though I've also had luck with Stalkers and Danubues.

I tend to keep several pet types with me and switch them based on the situation. For the most part, I stick with my advanced stalkers because they match my ship and weapon types (and, as a roleplayer, that matters to me). However, I use delta flyers for crystalline catastrophe because they add kinetic damage with micro photon torpedoes and their tachyon beam removes the re-crystalize (healing) stacks from the entity. I usually swap to runabouts for most of the borg STFs, as they can keep the nanite probes, nanite spheres, and assimilated birds of prey/raptors from reaching their destinations via the tractor beams.
