Ok i like many other gamer's enjoy endgame content and one of the great things about STO is the content doesn't have to be endgame to have the same effect. fleet ops accomplish the same feeling of satisfaction as raids in WoW but there is one major flaw. there is no way to get all your group members and friends in the same instance because they are ordered by rank. i realize this can help somewhat such as by keeping high ranks from dominating and lower ranks from screwing things up but there should be an option to organize a large team and have their own instance ready. this would actually give fleet's a purpose, purpose which at the moment is absent. without an objective there is no point to being in a player organization so please make it so that people in the same team or fleet can join the same fleet op regardless of rank. this way everyone can contribute. after all at the battle of sector 001 you didn't see all admirals fighting did you? no there were miranda class and sovereign class ships fighting together against a common menace. it just doesn't seem like the federation to reserve a fight for only those of a certain rank.
What you're basically asking for is a private instance for fleet actions. Because I can tell you right now that, regardless of whether they came along with you as your guest or or not, I don't want to have to compete in fleet actions with ships that out-level me.
I doubt I'm the only person who feels this way. I work hard during fleet actions, but that hard work has no chance of being recognized or rewarded when ships 30 levels above me are dominating the map. They also make otherwise challenging encounters trivial. I support you being able to do this sort of thing privately, but not in a public fleet action.
