I wish we could get these for science ships instead of any type of fighter craft as a counter to ships that do have fighter craft.

I'm sure some fleets would be very close if the science/medical doff distribution wasn't so messed up. Small to medium fleets have no hope of reaching t5 science for.. years at this rate

There are defnitely T5 fleets out there - I've done at least two Fleet Alerts where the Starbase we were defending was T5.

And there are definitely T5 shipyards too (although the base itself was at T4) as I purchased a Fleet Intrepid via a Fleet that has one.

Now, whether the T5 starbases' facilities were/are T5 or not I do not know.....

Your probably gonna see a bunch of Fleet Mergers soon if the Tier 5 stuff is really good... Even worse, when Season 8 drops, god only knows what they may add to late game Fleet Base stuff.

I just don't understand why Cryptic wouldn't at least TELL US what the Tier 5 Hanger Pet is.

True, I was going to wait for elite weapons instead of advanced fleet, but desided to buy the advance fleets instead when I saw they did less damage.

Actually it'd be impossible to not have at least one tier 5 area if they have a tier 5 SB. Now they could have like a tier 5 Shipyard and not have a tier 5 SB though.

Yes, I'd also like to know what the stats are and how much they'll cost. I just got the fleet heavy escort carrier and am anxious to find out if the elite hangars are worth waiting for. Will all current faction hangar pets be available w/ fleet versions, or will there only be one for each faction (ie elite fleet weapons inly being phaser for feds and disruptors for kdf)?

What's strange is Cryptic published the stats of all the later tier ships when S6 released, even though many people wouldn't have access till months down the line. Why would the elite hangars be any different. My only thought us they're like the t3 embassy uniforms (romulan senate robes) that had a temporary placeholder until after people started actually unlocking the t3 tailor (presumably quicker than the devs had anticipated). If that's the case, they better hurry bc my fleet is close. We're about halfway to t5 engineering, then we'll be throwing everything at t5 science.

On one hand I can see it being good for business (forcing players to buy more Zen to trade in for the vast amounts of Dilithium you need to get those higher tier Starbases.) But if it turns out to be "Oh hey guys, now you can buy the Advanced Versions of Hanger Pets from the Dilithium Store, except with Fleet Marks now!" your gonna see an epic rant on Starbases being an epic waste of time and money just so Cryptic could scam us due to our curiosity.

I personally just want something to contend with the Elite Scorpion since it's the best Hanger Pet out there with no contest amongst the other pets. I thought the Jem'Hadar Attack Ship was suppose to be that Hangar Pet but we saw how that turned out...

Honestly, I think at most all we will see is pretty much slight hull and shield improvements on the pets, with an extra or leveled up ability.

Like Danubes might get BO 1 or level up their Tractor Beam, while BoPs might get HY 3 or something.
