to be honest, Klingons Carriers need a lot of pets to make them strong ships.
however with the arrival of the gorn science ship- i have hung my defiant retro up into a hangar, and have gone back to beamboating, since all i have copped since it came out was dead shields. dead shields on an escort means a dead escort if your a tactical captain
Possibly with the advent of more pet deploying vessels in the game now, the Devs will work on something to give the pets a "mastermind" control scheme. Fewer pets of each class possibly with individual , grouped by class and whole group control. Including seperate target assingment and individual deployment options that don't require having to open my ship UI and swap icons on the fly. Possibly a carrying capacity deployables that can be used up to its maximum.
Each deployable could be given a Cubic Meter rating and said rating would be subtracted from the deployment capacity and new pets can be added to the inventory until said capacity is full or not suffiecient to be used.
I personally like the idea of carriers and the interceptors and stuff. But people start to "abuse" the fact, it will decrease performance a lot. I've seen too many carriers lately, equipped with like 3 mine launchers, spamming their fighters, PF and a million mines. There's no way you can engage anything properly and fighting with like 3fps starts to become a handicap -_-
While I love Carrier I do agree there needs to be something done. However I don't think the addition of the Gorn and Orion ships are really doing that much to add to the issue here. The Vo'Quv spawns ferociously every 30 sec while the Orion ship pops out 5-6(I forget which) ships every 3 min. They seem about as tough as the To'Duj fighters, so with just 6 of them they aren't lasting that long in PvP. Any sorta AoE or B:FaW, of just casual Tab-Fire-Tab clears them up faster then a summer cold. I haven't played the Gorn ships so no comment on that.
The walkers of Sigma where the Tiki head looking aliens in the vessel with all the fairy lights around it.
I called dibs due to the rumor that they were also Multi-demisional in thier existance and can exist as individuals in several realities at once. Plus with a Tiki head motif- you know they have awesome luaus!
