I parked it as close as I could to an Oddy, and it was about .5 the size of the saucer, and 2x the size of the Aquarius docked in the ship. I want my ship to be small

I noticed this too! After launching my aquarius it suddenly gets huge. What's the deal? This is really bothering me.

Is it because the nacelles are expanded? You know they fold out when it launches?

I think it also puffs up to make itself more impressive and as a safety feature in case if your Captain has not flown a ship for a while.

Pets seem to be smaller than player ships, as a rule, even if they're supposed to be the same ship.

However...

I was doing the Battle Rumble Royale 1701 Foundry mission (or whatever it's called), and near the end you do fight an independent Aquarius destroyer. I swear it was bigger than my Defiant, and that just ain't right.

Yeah, I know its supposed to be a little bigger. But this new size is WAAAYYY too big.

Cryptic knows about scaling issues since day one. Their justification for the whacky sizes? Ease of visual acquisition.

I would love for the Aquarius to be the right size again. That size leak is apparently a dying Tardis and that cross genre meshing just won't do. If I could name my Aquarius right now it would be U.S.S. Blowfish. Lose the Blowfish, bring back our little bulldog, the small Aquarius!

I agree. All I can say is....what the hell!?!?!? I noticed this too and it's just insane. I feel like my Aquarius pet that drops from my Oddyssey is just ugly and too bulky. It just doesn't look right. I agree! Bring back "our little bulldog!"

I bet you they made the Aquarius pet larger because they think captains have a hard time keeping track of where it is.

Cryptic, all Odyssey captains know exactly where their Aquarius pet is -- it blew up right next to the exploding Cube.

Exactly :p

reverse the change and maybe give us something in the UI that we (and carriers for that matter) can use to track what's going on with our pets!
