I've been saving up and I'm almost to the point where I have to choose. I'm really curious to give both a try and I can't decide which one that I want to grab.

What's everyone preference and please give a reason if you can.

carrier isnt good because you have to buy the heavy escort and the attack ship to have everything.
If you don't buy all that you are left with a carrier with only fighters.

I f'ing love the Jemmie carrier man its got a huge sense of power to it even without the HEC console or the frigates its still awesome I'm still out dps'ing most escorts in mine.

The temporal destroyer is also an impressive escort that I have as well butt its more about preference.

Even without the frigates, it's a very good carrier. I use it with the elite scorp, and it's fine.

The temporal ship is a destroyer (more like an escort), the carrier is, well, a carrier. What do you prefer to play ?

Also, I would suggest to wait until the next FE is released, as the player will be able to earn a carrier.

Best advice right now, I think.

This is just my opinion, but without the frigates, the "carrier" aspect of the ship is very difficult.
With the new pet mechanisc the Elite Scorps do not survive and need to be constantly respawned so if it ever gets to 5 stars,
Frigates > fighters now.
Previously, it was Frigates > Fighters unless the fighter was an elite scorpion.

The better frigate it the Recluse but he isn't asking about it.




And I have only heard good things about the temp ship.

It doesn't need the hangars really would have worked as a giant TAC cruiser so even with all that hangar issues its still an epic ship.

That's sort of the problem. I try to be versatile in my game play. I've got the Chimera and a few other escorts that I play with, but I don't have a carrier. The closest I've got is the Vesta and it's two runabouts.

I hadn't heard that the next FE will give a carrier. Where can I get information about that? Might be exactly what I'm looking for.

They haven't release much information. All we know so far is that it's supposed to be an 'Alien' carrier.

Of course, considering that all the races in STO are aliens to other races, that doesn't exactly narrow it down.
