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 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.
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
