Actually if you go back and watch DS9 the later battle scenes show more and more fighter ships flying around on both sides. Earlier shows primarily had a single ship with no back up, so fighters were not in play. Heck Voyager could not even call in for reinforcements. It's crazy to think all the larger ships have full shuttle bays, but those ships are only used for transport.

He liked it enough to produce it first, then later for some reason (money most likey) recanted his approval of his own work.

The caitians shown in the movies were male and if they want shaved manes fine, at least it fits for male anthopomorphs. There is some argument that the only cat-like female shown in the movies was caitian - but she still had hair!

I would name my Caitian carrier the USS Prego Kitty and spit out litters of Kitten Fighters all over the place...

Caitian Carrier designs:

Long Range Exploraton Carrier

Exclusive New Carrier Costume Skin

The C-Store version is sure to be a Top Seller with a fully interactive Brig, Sick bay and an Auto-Self Destruct when your debuffed by hostile Boarding Partys.

The Free Version will be less inspired.

The Caitian Carrier will come with Dual Beams for PvP, and have a free ability Beam Overload and Subsystem Targeting.

It will also for those carrier Captains, a new Uniform Piece!

I'd of thought the Andorians would have been more inclined to build a fighter carrier than the Caitians. However, the Caitians have less lore behind them, so Cryptic can mostly build them from scratch.

If folks are going to say that carriers don't belong in Star Trek, then the KDF needs to lose them as well. Other Trek games have done carrier combat in the past (Star Trek Invasion) comes to mind, and that was Starfleet.

Starfleet could easily call their fighters drones, thus eliminating the concept of people dying en-mass to hyper accurate torpedoes and direct energy weapons.

And this is exactly why there isn't a need for fighters. The Klingon carriers are made-up for the game, but you could argue that young klingon initiate prove their worth by partaking in quasi-suicide missions to gain honour and prestige. But in a universe where your starships have more or less 360 degree field of fire with direct energy weapons and guided torpedo systems while being completely shielded there is simply no way a fighter could be useful. Of course, in STO they are but only because the little Klingon fighters equal an escorts' dps but that is due to game mechanics

Ooh I love the Long Range Carrier option there, it looks simply awesome! Will you be able to extend those grapling arms as well or will that be the Cstore version only? Also, any word yet on what the fighters will be like? Flying furballs maybe?
