Well, the Oddyssey tactical cruiser has an Aquarius escort that it carries around.

I'd like to see a frigate pet for carriers. But the current offerings are far from weak. The runabouts wreck havoc on anybody who uses speed to up their defense. Paired with a wing of delta flyers(or just more runabouts) you can leave enemies crippled and constantly nursing their shields.

Think about it this way for two weapons slots you get:

Up to 8 tractor beam procs
Up to 8 volley of chroniton torpedoes with stacking procs(33% chance each torpedoe)
Up to 8 Phaser Banks with a 2.5% disable subsytem proc(20% total chance)

Oh, I'm pretty sure there were Feddies who liked the idea of getting carriers. I'd say it's the KDF enthusiasts who didn't like the idea, because it just takes something that's unique away from the KDF, further unbalancing the factions.

Oberths ?! REALLY? And equip them with Enhanced abandon ship ?

If you want to spam your opponent with chronitons & tractor beams in PvP that's one thing (and pretty horrendous, imo).

From a straight damage comparison, none of the generally available Fed hangar options can compete with the Fer'jai frigates.

I can't speak for the Caitian Stalkers, because I don't own them.

I own the Kar'fi however, and I can tell you that these are easily some of the strongest damage dealing pets available.


It's always interesting in these threads how every powerful/borderline overpowered option always becomes an area of "KDF uniqueness" that players feel they need to protect.

KDF can keep frigates if we could get some photonic(holographic) fighters or something inbetween the size of frigate and runabout (like corvette). Would amount to Bobba Fett's Slave I ship. Using holographic units on science ships seems like the most awesome compromise in giving them another reason to use and letting the KDF keep their "mine only " toys.

I think it's already been mentioned, but in the KDF fleet layout the BoP is more akin to a really big fighter than it is a small starship, like a Defiant. Even Martok's BoP only had about 10 crew on it and the ship could probably run with half-that. So from a practical standpoint, the BoP is very similar in function to the Delta Flyer, except it's much more focused on offense than just being a glorified shuttle like the runabouts and the Flyer.

Considering how little things the Klingons have are you surprised they have a death grip on anything they think is an advantage to their side? Just after they release of another new fed ship they where told they aren't getting a new ship in the foreseeable future.
I was once DKnight1000, apparently I had taken my own name so now I'm DKnight0001.
If I ask you a question it is not an insult but a genuine attempt to understand why.
When I insult you I won't be discreet about it, I will be precise and to the point stupid.

Fair enough. Give the KDF a a Destroyer or Raptor w/ a hanger bay and pets that have tractor beams, then we can talk. In fact, just tack that bad boy hanger bay right onto my Garumba and take away the Siege Mode so I can get me a fleet version, or hell; just alter the Fleet version to have a hangar bay instead of Siege Mode.

I have a crazy idea here ... you want those frigates ?
Make a Klingon Character and play that.
