# 1 Interceptor need which ship?

I noticed that the Orion Interceptor stated it need an Orion carrier, but I got the maruader from the free events. Shouldn't that satisfied the requirement?

Nope, Interceptors come from the Dacoit.

So the wording on the selection screen is wrong?

Well, the Dacoit is *an* Orion carrier, but they could probably afford to be more specific if that's all it says.

Well, the Elite Interceptors also get tractor beams, in addition to their chroniton weapons and potent weapon/engine drain beam. They're effectively the Yellowstone/Runabout's counterpart, but they use disruptor cannons instead of phaser beam arrays and speed-tank rather than hull-tank. They also launch in waves of 3's instead of pairs.

Scorpions in PROPER PVP where there any sort of spread bfaw scatter going on are utterly useless

Yellowstones and interceptors can pin any ship down and keep them there

I 1v1 a fleet mate the other day in his jhdc with two wings of elite scorpsI let the hail of heavy torps hit me with 0 impulse or buffs my hull dropped to 96 percent dropped a heavy torp on them 5 died instantly and the rest just kept scratching me

I've seen a wing of Yellowstones from a vesta pin 3 ships down and not let them go(PH on countdown on 1 of them and the other 2 either didn't have hazards or where on countdown)

A friend of mines elite interceptors drained my 6 points in PI torkaht to 60 wep power from max and disabled engines(my wown fault for running low power)and wouldn't let me go out of their tractors when APO was on countdown

Now trust me pinning a ship down also sets them to 0 defence which in turn means every shot will hit is much better than maybe taking 4% of someone's hull down

So trust me in PVP they are far superior however in PVE elite scorpions rule the roost second only to romulan drone ships which are massively OP
