With the fighter why not use a cannon? If you're using a Beam Weapon Then might I suggest the Delta Flyer?

I've done a few RA's in the Fighter (yeah I'm THAT GUY) and it does make for an interresting challenge. Though for the standard shuttles, I'm not too sure what they would be good for other than getting the Delta Flyer.

The standard Type 8 Shuttle is pretty useless, but you get it for free. The Danube Class Runabout has superior shield and hull strength and has a native Tractor Beam I ability built in. If you are willing to lay down the 30k or so EC to buy it, then you're better off with the Danube.

I never realized just how angry people get when I fly my tiny fighter into an RA, never even considered using my captains yacht, or the Delta flyer though. I'll have to try that sometime.

I did the Psi Velorum RA in my Captain's Yacht. Probes were bigger then my ship. And the team still pulled off a win.

Was it a group you went in with, or did you join with random people?

Just because the group won, doesn't mean they didn't have to work harder to make up for the lack of the firepower and abilities an actual ship, not a shuttle, would have brought.

Flying shuttles would be great!

a Shuttle Vs. Shuttle PvP queue would be nice. I usually take on out to do my anomaly grind in low level exploration sections. It's also great fun to fly your Delta Flyer into an RA and try to recreate the scene from Voyager where it blows up

This! A million times, THIS!!!!

Cryptic, are you listening?

I usually use my Yacht or Delta Flyer to generally bum around the galaxy getting from one place to another. I'll go and do anomaly scanning in one, but thats about it really.

Would love to see more shuttle missions though.
