# 1 Carrier Groups
06-14-2012, 09:08 AM
I have an idea for a new class of Starship, which is a large carrier ship! Each ship would carry a battle group of starships (not fighters), these would be starships that we've come to know. Imagine a battle group of Defiant starships loaded into 1 Carrier starship. You could build special missions around these "Carrier Battle Groups" In the "pick your starship" mode you would set the carrier as your default starship, and then their would be a sub menu that allows you to add other starships into the carrier. In battle you can launch all your starships, and command 1 ship manually with an action button that lets you command the other ships remotely.

OR.

In multiplayer - The Carrier Battle Group would allow a fleet of (players) link up with the Carrier ship and warp into battle together.

The options are unlimited.

Thanks.

I think it's a great idea. That would be very cool.

If you go back to your Star Trek Voyager series on DVD, watch "S03E23 - Distant Origin" and watch the ship that comes out of transwarp around 26 mins 55 secs. It transported Voyager INSIDE the supership.

But before they do that, they have to create a "shuttle bay" system in the game and then they can move forward to this idea (which is primarily a similar concept).

The Atrox has a thing looking like a REALLY BIG hangar bay, in the middle of it. I think that could carry a defiant, it looks about the size of one.

a defiant is bigger than an atrox's hanger bay, a t1 escort would fit in there, or a nova

Actualy i was watchin my friend launch the shuttles from this hanger, and in size the danube had maybe few cm to manuver , while a delta flyer would not fit in it at all , but i gues this is a size issue of those pets rather then the hangar, but the Defiant is realy too big for it , maybe the Saber would fit in there at tops.

That was the Voth city ship.

So basically, a mobile starbase? As long as it doesn't appear in combat, I suppose it could work. On the other hand, all larger ships are designed to operate on their own over great distances. So there'd be little need for such big ships, lorewise.

Second: A carrier that carries warp capable STARships (and as such has to be firkiing humongous) into battle.

? wait what. what battle exactly? you mean the instances we have everywhere sicne this is not some sort of open world game like eve where you clearly have ripped off this idea without thining about the fundamental differences between the two games?!


What sense does that even make to create humongous spaceship whose sole reason for existence is to carry inside itself smaller space ships that could very well travel on their own power for the express reason to deliver tehm into a combat zone they coudl have reached on their own.

???

What sense does that make?


None. nothing. (in eve you actualyl have DISTANCE to cover and having a mobile supply base that holds your fittings and ships is a logical thing to have. STO has no such thing as distance or logistics.)



Which of course did not stop cryptic from pre-empting this horribly idea by having made the vo quv and karfi DO EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE ASKING FOR - that is carrying smaller starships like birds of prey and ferjal frigates.

I think you should be hired as game designer, apparently you and cryptic share the same state of mind.

Which is stoned.
