# 1 Put Hangers on Starships (FED)
04-19-2012, 08:09 AM
The big ships for the Fed side need to have hangers cause the soveregion has 2 shuttle bays/Hanger Bays 1 at the back on the saucer section and one on the hull (aft), because i see klingons call in fleet support and lauch like heaps of birds of preys and fighters and all the feds get to launch is 3 fighters that die instantly by there overpowering cannons that tear through my shields in 2 secs....i think many people have been experiencing this and i would also like to know when the remen prototype set will release...Thanks....!!

Bahahahahahahahahaha I thought you meant coat hangers. Get some Scorpion Fighters from the Romie FEs.

That and you do have the Caitain Cruiser on the way. Be patient.

Yes patience, cryptic is starting to work on major faction balancing it will just take some time, hang in there a little longer there are federation carriers on the way. They have also stated long term goals to make klingons start at level 1 and give them their own tutorial, but that may not happen till long after season 6.

For the highlight part I am banking on season 194732, you know, a ways after they turn off the servers.

But before that Fed only players will have to get KDF and Star Empire BoPs in lock boxes.

the feds dont need carriers, they however could stand to get a "flight deck cruiser". although now that the perigrin has been reduced to a consumbale random drop from a lock box... i wouldnt even count on a flight deck cruiser at this point.

Really Op? really? This same silly debate? What do you all take numbers and line up to make these threads?
A fed FDC is comming. We have pets ingame galor if you bother to look and grind for them, Fleet support powers and Photonic Fleets. A plethora of abilities to fight pet spam and a history of fed outcry against pet sopam that dates back to two seconds after the VoQuv was dropped ingame and yet we still see threads asking for more pet spam vessels! WHY WHY WHY Why do we need yet more pet spam vessels in agame that can barely tolerate them now?
Its not an I win you know? Those who make it look so in a match are just that good at flying them.
Kahless wept, this crap gets old.

No. No. No. Feds do not need carriers for balance. It is one of the few things about the KDF that is still unique. Besides, what about all that spam? On both sides? Really? Really?

The faction doesn't need them. Many of us Fed players, don't want them. They are un-Trek, un-UFP and un-fun (most of the time). Keep them on the KDF where they belong. My toons on both factions will thank you.

Neither the Feds nor the KDF needs Carriers in the first place. Carriers are Star Wars, Babylon 5, Space: Above and Beyond, Battlestar Galactica and more. Not Star Trek. I love all this properties (BSG:TNS posssibly more then Trek!), but this is one of the distinguishing marks.

CBS worries so much about stuff like Ferengi ships in Fed Captain's hand that Cryptic is "forced" to use lockboxes, but they had the crazy-*** idea that adding Carriers to Startrek which fundamentally changes the entire nature of Startrek's feel would be fine. Nonsense.

I'm pretty sure this topic has arisen hundreds of times over the past 2 years. While a Fed carrier would be cool to play, cloak, carriers, and BoPs make the KDF unique. Since Cryptic has been slowly stepping on the toes of KDF players by adding Fighter devices, universal slots on a number of ships (Nebula (needed it though, due to lore), Jem'Hadar Attack Ship (like a Tactically-oriented BoP), and Odyssey/Odyssey+1), and cloaking devices (Gal-X and VA Defiant, though those fit lore (glad they haven't enlarged this number), people tend to think that we are heading the direction of balanced factions and that we need both factions to be exactly the same. BORING!

What Cryptic should do is focus on is actually balancing the factions instead of adding new ships and consoles and hoping they are balanced in PvP.

Originally, there were 5 classes of ships:

Escort (Fleet, Advanced, Raptor): Tac Comm, Tac LC
Cruiser (Assault, Star, Negh'Var): Eng Comm, Eng LC
Science (Recon, Deep Space): Sci Comm, Sci LC - FED ONLY
Bird of Prey (Hegh'ta): All Universal - KLINGON ONLY
Carrier (quasi-science) (Vo'Quv): Sci Comm, but cruiser-like - KLINGON ONLY

They added the Kar'fi, Galaxy-X, and the various Retrofit ships, but they kept to this basic outline for the longest time. The Feds had a standard layout, while the Klinks broke that standard layout. It made things interesting! Don't get me wrong; a number of the C-Store ships are very interesting, like the Excelsior or the B'rel Retrofit, but it has just gotten too complicated.

And now there will be a Fed carrier? Sigh, lets screw things up even more!

There will be a day when FaW is nerfed again, and then we will be back to days when 4-carrier, 1-escort/BoP teams reigned freely and made everyone not do FvK.
