With the new Hanger command behavior, the friendly Shuttle Squadron will "dock" with the player 15 seconds after the command "Follow Me" is given. The Shuttle Squardron will not respawn if another Hanger command is given. The player is left to finish the mission w/o any help (if solo).
Yep, I noticed that too. And I had a feeling that it had something to do with the new carrier command interface. It just amazes me that Cryptic would miss a bug like that. It seems like something that would have been obvious and taken care of before the release of this new interface.
