Suggestion for Saucer/Chevron Sep, etc.

I would like to suggest, for the Galaxy Retrofit, Odyssey and Bortasqu', that whenever we launch the saucer/chevron or the Aquarius or HoH'SuS, that a status window comes up for the pet so we don't have to try and search for it, especially in the middle of combat.

Seeing as how the status window for carrier pets was just launched, this should be too difficult.

    You could just focus target the pet. That way it will remain pinned in your HUD and you don't have to worry about it so much.

    i don't exactly know why the oddy/bortasq pet isn't a hanger.
    Should I start posting again after all this time?

    I am pretty sure it is because originally the only other carrier was the Vo'quv and they had wanted it to be a klingon thing ( then the feds whined and whined until they got the atrox). IT is also because they are Cruisers, while carriers are science vessels. it would be weird to have the flagships be science ships, especially because the flagship has always been a cruiser of some sort.

    I fully support this suggestion and would even want them to go a step further: make separated parts of our starship controllable like hangar pets.

    yeah, but things change.
    The Jem Dread is a pretty poor science vessel.

    I know they spent alot on the pet animation, but with the new carrier controls, it seems silly that the Voq that releases BOP that you can control uses it, but the Bortasq that releases a BOP cannot.

    Sorry to say, it is very unlikely to change. It is very rare ( I cannot think of an example right now of it ever happening) that Cryptic changes a ship already in game, and these ships have been around for a while. I do agree though that seeing the pets HP would be awesome, even if it is unlikely to happen.

    The Jem dread is also a mutant of a ship, though it does actually have the science abilities, and in general Carriers are Science vessels

    All ships with pets that are built-in should get standard pet controls.

    Karfi was radically changed for the better

    The karfi was the worst ship in the game.
    One hanger, if I recall, and a bunch of other problems (and free). They buffed and fixed it and put it in the z store.

    Same with the marauder, I think. It didn't use to have a hanger.

    Cryptic has went back and radically changed ships from their intended purpose before.

    The oddy and bortasq 's pet (not chevron sep) should been a hanger pet like the scimitar

    My point is that we shouldn't have to. ie: In the heat of a battle, it's not that easy to target my pet and set focus.
