Are there any skills. abilities or traits that improve carrier pet performance directly as in spec here and DPS goes up etc? I'd assumed they were treated as separate vessels but see in the skills spreadsheet that hull repair may effect pet hull repair.

I am aware of flight deck officers and game play tactics like grav well to hold and pets to torp, or pets to strip shields and player to get hull etc. What I mean is purely spec somewhere and get an ongoing passive benefit to pets.

I'm about to respec my carrier capt and don't want to waste zen.

the only one I know about is the space trait wing commander. it raises the pets gaining ranks by 50% faster. but it is very costly on the market.

Flow capacitors and power siphons drones work together, not sure about anything else.

The pets thing is confusing. I think all of your captain skills pass on to your pets, but consoles installed in your ship don't necessarily. It may be that ones which boost a captain skill will pass (like a Flow Cap console), but other flat boosts don't (like Tactical consoles that boost energy damage). I could be way off though, as I said the whole thing is rather confusing.

Combat logs have my pets doing about 2% crits even when the captain has the T5 energy weapon skill that should increase crits and critD and another Rom that gives extra crits to all weapons. I have 3 captains with pets and different skills but the same level of crits from pets.

I'm about to respec my Klingon carrier capt and want to find if there is anything to gain from speccing for the pets before spending zen.

Powers like Attack pattern Beta and/or anything else that reduces the target resistance are the only ways to increase fighter damage.

Private pvps with my friends revealed that my carrier pets were applying plasmonic leech that I had equipped on my JHDC. Needs more testing, all I know is they were applying it to both the enemy and themselves according to the UI

You can also improve pet performance with flight deck officer doffs. There's quite some variety. E.g. reduce recharge time for launch.

According to my logs, my pets are benefiting from my Omega Graviton Amplifier proc.
I once again match my character. Behold the power of PINK!

I just got an E Fleet warp core with amp and in a parsed run my scorps were up 300-400 dps from where they'd been before.

Wonder if the 25% torp damage space sets do it for pets with HY.

These day every 3rd player has pets so we do 'need' to know this stuff.
