I am not sure adding a "New" Carrier is necesarily needed. I for one am pushing for a refit of the Atrox. I LOVE my Atrox. I love the look especially. What I would personally like to see is the ATrox getting refit. Other carriers have universal bridge officer slots. But the klingons and the jem can also launch frigates.

Now I know a lot of people will scream "THE FEDS NEVER HAD A CARRIER!"...etc etc. To be honest, I do not know as far as game balancing and lag issues and such would be far. I for one would prefer a third or even fourth hanger bay. Perhaps even removing some of its current weapon slots. Having a "Fleet" version which has 4 hanger bays and oen fore and aft weapon weapon slot so people can still have thier set bonuses perhaps.

With all of the new ships coming out. The Vesta is getting extra console slots and special shields and all of teh other ships with thier I feel that this ship, which many of us do have. Is becoming obsolete to other ships that can just look at mobs of ships and they vaporize. Or at the very least can fullfil multiple roles.

Perhaps, making it have a special ability with an AoE HoT that heals all teh fighters it has launched.

Also, My exp comes from PvE. I do not partake in PvP. I have had enough of that being in other space mmo's since they were in beta and you could not warp to zero to pass through a gate. (Those who know understand).

I can say that I wouldn't mind seeing a unique, new Starfleet dedicated carrier as well as Klingons getting something uniquely KDF since I feel that space is starting to get inundated with alien designs that are becoming too generic.

Since I used to pray to the STO Gods (and went largely unanswered due to legal reasons), I bring forward this link:

If this doesn't scream "Carrier!", I dont know what does.
How about no.

But give it some time and I'm sure cryptic will launch a Galaxy based carrier sometime in the future.

Your argument of carriers being Klingon specific is null in void. The battle cloak, the VERY HIGH dmg ships and the cruisers that can fit cannons are the Klingon's unique aspect. Carriers are not.

The ship looks pretty cool. And the manufacturing aspect would fit in with replicating fighters en-mass. I think this is a winner!
Best damage ships? Umm Feds have three ships with 5 tac consoles to the KDF's 0

Most carriers? Well yes...if only count endgame like I am...well would you look at that its 3 to 3...

The only thing KDF really has is the Battlecruisers...everything else feds beat kdf including carrier wise. Even then the fed carriers are better in a lot of ways compared to the fed ones.

If you're gonna put out a choice, at least have a picture of it!
I kinda liked this one from Starfleet Command 2.
Sometimes I think I play STO just to have stuff to rant about on the forums!

They can't use designs from other games.

Yet for me, love is knowing your target, putting them in your targeting reticule, and together, achieving a singular purpose... against statistically long odds.

in my opinion i think the starfleet should get one more big carrier
and thats it. and a few extra hanger pets.

with the exception of Romulan faction coming.
this game doesn't need any more carriers.
dont get me wrong i am a big fan of carrier ships.
but i think its time to add other ships other then carrier types.

need more fleet ships...

We're talking actual Carriers with 2 hangar bays, not Escorts, Cruisers, or Sci ships with a single hangar bay. KDF has 2 Fed has 1. KDF also has the only Carrier that's not a cstore purchase and the only carriers that can launch Frigates. Not counting the Recluse and Dreadnought since they're useable by both.
