EXCLUSIVE: As an added bonus for owners of a Jem?Hadar Attack Ship, there is a Hangar item available for use exclusively for the Jem?Hadar Dreadnought Carrier (available for purchase in the Lobi Store). Scaling quality levels of these items will be available for purchase from the Shipyard Store, Dilithium Store, or Fleet Store only if you have obtained the both the Jem?Hadar Attack Ship and Jem?Hadar Dreadnought Carrier.
The Fleet shops have been offering a consistent amount of garbage for the most part which is railroaded down faction stereotypes.
Thus, it is exceptionally likely the Fleet pets will be the equivelent of Scorpion Fighters but using the existing hanger options for the factions.

Incidentally, I find it really stupid Cryptic would put the Jem Hadar Attack Ships in the fleet store when the Fleet is largely going to be unable to benefit from it. Since the unlock is per character, it isnt as if someone can just mount up the fighters elsewhere and the Fleet would be unable to access the ship that can mount them ANYWAY.

At least with the Andorian Phasers, the Kunmari is readily available and is an account wide unlock - Which are supposedly meant to get a Fleet version

Although... if your going to do that for Andorian Phasers... where is the fleet version of Quad Cannons ?

From that I just figured that there would also be a fleet variant of the jem fighters.

If they even boast one Hangar Pet for the Federation that has Mines, that will already be infinitely better then the Elite Scorpions when it comes to PVE. Hell, even giving a Peregrin Fighter a Turret or Beam Array would make it better then the Elite Scorpions.... I'm just sick of Scorpions being the "ONLY" option you have if you want to be a half way decent Carrier.

I believe every carrier pet in the dilithium store is going to have an Elite fleet version. That only excludes the Widow, which has no Advanced version.

Once fleets start getting the Tier 4 Communications Array, then the monopoly Elite Scorpion Fighters have will fade out and eventually be a thing of the past. It will be a matter of personal preference which ships are used or at least until the OP carrier pet is revealed and players will use it till that is fixed.

Don't you mean Tier 5 Comm Array?

Imagine fleet ultra rare BoPs and Fer'Jai frigates. If you thought the Fed pets were going to be good imagine how those will be =D

T5 is a long way off for most fleets and for some reason science was the last thing anyone worked towards. Which is a shame as a lot of the really good ships have pets of some description now.

Can you imagine advanced fleet quad cannons? Dmgx8 lol, would be hilarious.

Also anyone want to see Feds get tactical escort (defiant) pets? Releases only 1 at a time (so max 4) come with quad cannons, CRF, photon torp, THY1.

The elite ship/ground items aren't as good as the set stuff either.
Science is hard (because cryptic thinks the sci/med doff discrepancy is hilarious) but if the other elite stuff isn't very good then neither is the pets.

And why do t1 vs t5 ships even exist anyways?
Is the fleet oddy/bortasq worth t5 without the consoles and the variants?

I don't think it will be rethought until a larger percentage of the fleets acquire those ranks and cryptic will probably make it make more sense as well as make is more accessible
I don't understand what you mean by this. Please explain??? What do you mean by the sci/med doff discrepancy?
