I don't subscibe to the philosphy of giving someone something just because they want it. That says "waste of time and energy on a needless thing" to me. If you want something give a good reason why, out of all the things the devs can create, they should create your thing.

I don't care what comes out for the federation but what i want to see is weapons that will reach out past 10Km to engage targets like permanent High yield torpedoes that are able to be shot down that are only fit-able on certain ships like the Akira it should have some special torpedoes (becouse so far in every game that this ship is in it has been know to use torpedoes a lot more than any other ship) or the defiant should be able to drop a mine (regardles of wither it has a mine deploy loaded into it or not). Simple thing that should of been in this game really aren't.

The game is quite underdeveloped and even still in the future it still will be especially with this instance sytem it has just does not promote the star trek feel its suposed to have. The game is way to stat based for its own good and skill is only aplied to what buttons you hit and just how fast. The game does no good to the Vo'Quv at all either there are too little Fighter types(interceptors, fighters, heavy fighters, bombers and stealth fighters) and not enough craft able to be deployed while under combat.

All Cruisers should have a hanger bay because of the shuttle bay. And they should be able to luanch the Delta Flyer. While to ballance out the Vo'Quv give it one more hanger or 2. Tom Paris was a genius when it came to designing that ship. It is a multi purpose ship that was powerfull enough to double as a fighter when needed, but it was still a shuttle in the end to hold true to the federation standards and it was about the same size or smaller than a danube.

The Federation is a bit more vicious and darker than people actually realize and tend to sugar coat a lot of things they do in the name of peace and exploration like building full blow warships with varying sizes of science facilities on board, or manned observation post on undeveloped worlds as one of the few minor details. Another thing is We have foward facing arrays and cannons but what about side facing arrays and cannons like some ships actually had, speaking of which why the hell is my dual beam arrays and cannons firing out of my nacelles, the ram scoops particularly. I find that a breach in the design codes of conduct set by the lore of Star Trek it self.
Fixed wall of text error

I disagree with a lot of these points of yours so i don't think i'm gonna go point by point on them when i fixed your insane wall of text.

Its mostly opinion any ways which just about every thing else is on the forums any way. In the end this is just another Star Trek Game

I really hope they add a carrier option for federation players somewhere down the line, maybe "Season 3" or something.

What about my point? My point is based on facts as presented on the TV show and blueprint materials published by the team of designers who actually made the Enterprise-D and later the Nebula Class ship. Unless the saucer interior of the Nebula class was altered during the re-design process, both the Galaxy and the Nebula class starship's main shuttlebay are so large on deck 4-5 that they could easily hold a couple squadrons of fighters.

Crap, another minnesotan, lol.

When was a Nebula or Galaxy ever used as a carrier? Either specifically shown launching them, or a character saying "Sir, the USS Galaxy has launched all her fighters". I've never seen it. Though I didn't get to watch DS9.

Well, it's based on assumption, really.

Combining the sheer size of the Galaxy class main shuttlebay and the fact that while the Peregrine fighters are warp-capable, why waste the energy when you can park them in a larger ship until you approach the enemy fleet?

Besides, there's that one episode of TNG where Picard, Troi & Geordi are flying a runabout back to the Enterprise-D. One can assume that they were planning on landing it in the -D's main shuttlebay before they had to blow it up to save the ship. Shuttlebay 2 or 3 would be a pretty tight fit for a runabout.

I wouldnt have a problem with us getting fighters, as far as a carrier meh. They would have to invent a new ship design because nothing in trek is that large on the Fed side. Closest would be the Galaxy I suppose.




I would love to be able to buy a Delta Flyer tho, would be awesome.

I've never seen anything canon relating to a Carrier, we dont need one. They are useless in my opinion anyway, all those fighters die way to fast to be useful. Its the big ship itself thats a pain to kill.
